Why it sucks being Nightlight

I sometimes wonder what it would be like if my website were a real person. And really, I think it would kinda suck. There's a few reasons why:

To start with, there's rarely anything new going on. Sure, occassionally there's a bit of a change to the landscape... but push comes to shove, there's nothing.

No one ever visits you.

No one recognises you for what you are! Don't want to sound like I don't appreciate the little corner of LFN I've been given, but do you know how much of a drag it is to be on the Grim Fandango Network when your website has nothing really to do with Grim Fandango? People actually start REACHING for a link... and the one they come up with is that Tierra de los Muertos and Grim Fandango both have skeletons in them.

Suddenly, there are claims that Tierra de los Muertos is based on Grim Fandango. That's like saying that the Corpse Bride is based on Nightmare Before Christmas. And suddenly a world I've created entirely independently, a book I've written the first draft of, countless characters I've come up with... come off as some dodgy kind of advanced fan fiction of a game which while good, is long dead.

I read this in a link to my website.
Nightlight Productions are well known for their great radio show based on Grim Fandango, and now 3D characters based on the Grim Fandango world.
I don't think I can think of a more indirect way to say 'rip off'. It's a real insult, that's what it is.

Bleh. Sorry guys, that's me having a vent.

I'll be posting news up on Nightlight tonight, once I'm home from work, for the record. It will have nothing to do with Grim Fandango.

Want some funny radio plays?
