#3 is the 2011 San Fernando Massacre. The gladiator fights were only the tip of the iceberg of what they did to those passengers like throwing kids into vats of acid and forcing the bus drivers to run over people . It's really ****** up.

Oh, just make sure you don't confuse it with the 2010 San Fernando Massacre, also by Los Zetas.

The Zetas are hardcore. For Halloween, they killed a few members of a rival cartel, beheaded them, skinned the heads and gouged out the eyes and tongue and turned the now hollow heads into Jack-o-lanterns.

At least the rival cartel members were rival cartel and killed first. I don't think it's OK to kill anyone but the fact that they were killed and then had horrific things done to them them is a little bit more comforting then what happened to the tortured innocents. They were forced to kill each other and then were sent off to suicide missions. What kind of sub-human ***** are these los zetas bitches.

This one is actually really important for those of you struggling to stay motivated. This is the hardest part of doing anything creative myself, as well.

If you guys are making something, and someone wants to ask about it, try to be super vague, or simply tell them to wait until it's finished. I started making a videogame recently. I showed off a small demo to some folks, they loved it, and I haven't touched it since. I really gotta get that **** together.

So I'm calling you out, whoever has unfinished business: Get your **** together. Go finish it.

It's entirely controlled by mouse.

Left MB is movement, the farther away you hold it from your character, the faster you run.
Right MB is using the equipped item. (Sword, Magnifying Glass, or Giant Disembodied Hands)
Mouse Wheel Switches Equipped Item

The Magnifying glass isn't fully programmed, but use it to click on stuff to look inside and ****. If you find something, (a key), it'll appear in the bottom left corner of the screen.

Hud shows nothing but health. You can't die, anyway.

Dude, this **** is FUN!

Yeah, it's a Zelda clone, but you have the level and puzzle design down to a science. It's good as hell.

It seems like you have the music sort of down, but if you need help on that I can definitely assist.

Phew, on a computer. Felt kinda rude only saying that I have a composer, but I was on my phone, so.. ehh.

I'm glad you enjoyed it so much. It'll be much less of a Zelda clone eventually. The magnifying glass will sort of turn it into a Zelda/Point 'n Click hybrid. At some point, nearly everything should be clickable with the magnifying glass, giving little blurbs of text. Some of it might be useless like "Books on a shelf" or some ****, but it'll give clues to otherwise-cryptic puzzles and stuff. Think of Samus's scanner in the Metroid Prime games.

It plays nice, and has a very good 8 bit artstyle

I recomend you to give the player character something to stand out, to make it really unique, like link´s hat

When are you gonna finish it?

I plan to. Game design is what I want to do as a career, but for now, I don't have the time, really. It hasn't left my mind, though. I basically gave the character Sora's hairstyle, from Kingdom Hearts, and goggles. So it stands out a little. But probably not enough, haha. I'll work on it more when I get the chance.

Right now, It's basically a Zelda game. I'm working on making it as original as possible, but the game isn't far enough into dev to look like anything other than the DS Zelda Titles, haha.

Net worth doesn't accurately describe wealth. A man who earns $200k per year but has $500k debt from education fees; that man is wealthy, despite being in huge debt.

Take myself. I'm just finishing my degree this month. In the summer I have a generously paying job lined up which will fund a house purchase almost immediately (I'll save up a deposit in the 3-4 months it takes to purchase a house).

That will still leave me with a mortgage, student debts, credit card debts. It'll be several years before I have more cash+assets than I have debts.

However I consider myself pretty wealthy, with a relatively high standard of living and a fairly expensive car. Certainly in relation to some of my friends who've been earning full time wages for years.
