Hello Chris. Very long time no see :smile:

A lot's happened for me over the past however many years. Like you, PDX etc. was my main source of human contact and I occasionally think to check these forums out a couple of times a year. Congrats on graduating from uni. Glad to hear your depression is managed too, finding the right drug can be difficult.

As for me, I was diagnosed with schizophrenia (which doesn't mean split personalities) seven or so years ago, after a very public bout of the illness. On meds which are helping greatly (though they have their down sides, like sedation) and it's how I met my now wife(!). We have a mad springer spaniel puppy who is great 90% of the time and a terror the rest! I'm still very much into my photography (https://www.flickr.com/photos/alex_wendes/) and have a new darkroom now... in a shed in the garden... which is very cold this time of year. It's great fun though :) Otherwise, taking life as it comes.

@Jonas
Glad life is treating you well. I remember when you were just trying to get in to testing games. I'll have to give your games a go, they look interesting :smile:

Just to say, I've been playing Expeditions Viking and am thoroughly enjoying it. Combat is a bit brutal until you figure it out, but good fun!

Hah, yeah we never did figure out how to establish a gentle learning curve. Glad you like it though.

Yes, I had to repeat the bridge at the start about 5-6 times before I "got it".

Have you got any of your photography up online? Would love to see it.

No, just on Facebook :)

The bridge is a tough one yeah, it's a really unusual setup which requires weird tactics to get through well, and it's a bit too early in the game to throw that kind of situation at the player. If we were to ever do a Director's Cut of Viking, we would have to work a lot on tuning the difficulty progression over the first 5 or so hours of the game.

The game is definitely leading me towards a certain formation: sword/axe and shield up front, spears behind and arrows tucked away somewhere at the back. Which I guess makes sense and that's probably how they would have fought.

I won't call you "Howard", but I remember.

Call me Howard plis. It's good for the ego, and I'm honestly still chuffed. Did you ever hang out with John Young? I was meant to have coffee with him but it's not happening before I go back :(

@Jonas if you're going to schlep all the way to this side of the world it has to be a decent chunk of time to make the flight worth it. It IS awful... But how cool was aussie? :)

Australia was nice :)

I spent a week in Perth and a week in Melbourne. I wish I'd taken two weeks in Perth, the weather was so good. I miss the sun.
