10 years of No Time To Play



10 years ago, I had been out of work for a year, in the middle of an economic recession, and in doubt of my future. But I did know that lately games had become a big slice of my life. So with NightWrath's initial investment, we went ahead and got the site going.

5 years ago, I was financially secure, even well off, thanks to Cheetah, but the site's future was again in doubt. The team scattered and my energy dwindling, I couldn't say if this project would go on. That's when I compiled the first book. If the worst happened, at least something would survive.

It came out so well, and reactions were so good, I immediately decided to write a second book over the coming five years. A deliberate effort helped, too, even as the site went through seismic changes a couple of years later. Except by now this was my life. I ruined my health to save it, and never regretted it for a moment.

And the new book came through! It's 2020, and I just hit the big button labeled Publish. You'll find it on Gumroad and Leanpub; it's a great way to get something in return for supporting No Time To Play. Otherwise, its contents can be found scattered all over the website, and will remain free.

Too bad the aforementioned friends are busy due to work and can't be with me today even virtually. We lost touch with the rest of the team years ago.

That leaves you, my readers. The few of you who are left. Thanks for sticking around. Recent changes chased off much of an already dwindling audience.

Oh well, it can't be helped. Thanks again, and see you around.
