Things are winding down for the year so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts about 2014. I’d call this year a pretty good success as we released Episode 26, 27, 28, and finally brought a close to the Tragedy of Eclipso. Also as a bonus…maybe?…I released a new game called Cyber Zelda……… So there was that.

I’m very happy with what we got out, we got to see some epic battles with Rigalo and Onox, and Young Link and Vaati, and one of the moments that was special with Young Link being able to transform again.

I think the main reason I’m writing this is to tell you that I don’t have anything else to really show for the end of the year. I had thought about making a trailer, but it would be a boring trailer as I don’t want any spoilers so…I don’t know.

I’m shooting for Episode 29 to be released sometime in February, and right now progress on the episode isn’t great. I’ll have more motivation in January to get it rolling. Also I’ve concluded there will be 35 episodes total, and I’m hoping maybe next year we’ll get as close as we can to finishing the year with Episode 32.

I also want to tell you that there’s something I really need to be doing instead of the show, and I feel like I made a point to work on it this year and I didn’t… But that has to change because there’s no excuse for me not to get some of my written works published. I have a lot of stories I want to write and writing is difficult, it takes time, and I should have been writing years ago instead of animating……..I’m almost 30 and still making Zelda cartoons. What am I doing? xD I’m kidding.

The secret project I’ve talked about before is looking less and less like a reality, even though it’s something I’m overly obsessed with and too passionate about. I mentioned it would be a collaborative effort, which is a double edged sword, on one hand it would be great if it really happened, on the other it would take so much time it’s unfair to ask others to put their personal projects on hold to help me with it. It would be the same as asking someone to drop everything their doing to not get paid to work on it, which is insane. I’ve thought about Kickstarter and Pateron to pay them for their hard work, but that’s only an option if I’m 100% positive this will be a reality, and it’s more like a 2% chance.

That’s all I have to say. I want to wish everyone a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! Thank you for still watching and supporting the show, and I want to thank the voice actors for putting up with me.

Thank you and have a good rest of the year.

After Episode 28, as you might have guessed, Episode 29’s pace will slow down a little. I’m not sure what all I can say about this episode without it being a spoiler, but I’ll try.

I had planned to do a Vlog about my thoughts on Tragedy of Eclipso, but this’ll have to do. A number of you have expressed that you’ve liked Tragedy of Eclipso and said you were confused as to why I called it a “disaster.”…well I think if I described what I wanted in the first place maybe you’d see the differences. On it’s own Tragedy of Eclipso has problems and plot holes that I am  not going to defend because I wrote myself in a corner in many areas.
