We Have a Website!

Hello readers!  I hope you're all having a good summer.  I certainly am - my Stake President submitted my mission papers to Salt Lake, and I'm betting I'll have an announcement for you all in about two weeks!

Anyway, you're probably all wondering why I called you here tonight.  Well, if you read the title to this post, you'd know already.  Go ahead, I'll give you time to quickly glance up to refresh your memory.  Ready? Good, because I here go!

I have finally wadded through the thick waters of BYUSA bureaucracy, and we now have a working website!  Took us three months, but we've finally made it.

Anyway, if you go to, you'll be able to see all the awesomeness that has been put together.  The site is still undergoing construction and modification, but is functional and has been deemed worthy for publication.  We a very basic blog-like announcement front page, with (this is my favorite part!) forums for all of us to chat and have fun on.

The forums are also undergoing maintenance, so feel free to shoot me an email (you can find my support email on the website's contact us page) detailing any errors or things you think the website should have.

Right now you need to create a personal account for the website to comment on any of our updates or use the blog, but we're hoping to *maybe* integrate your RouteY login information.  However, you'll need to make a new account for now.

So, if you haven't already, hurry up and head over to, create an account, post in the forums, and have a grand old time!

Until next time,

Summer Approaches!

Well, it seems like things are finally warming up for good here in Utah.   Time for an update on everything that has been going on!

So first off, apologies about the podcast.  I somehow lost the mp3 file for it and so have not been able to post it.  I am going to have to do a thorough search of my hard drive to find it, so I'll keep you updated.  Seriously, I don't know where it has gone!  The search function is not functioning!

In other news, our resident Game Warden, Andrew, is working on getting the website set up.  He is all ready; we are just waiting for the people at BYU to sort stuff out.  Seriously, with the service we get for clubs from BYU, I am glad they are not a hospital.  Most patients would be dead!  When the website is set up, we will be moving our weekly(ish) updates to there and the blog will be an opinion and news place where we will write commentaries and, of course, reviews.  Speaking of reviews, I will be posting several soon.

Game news!  Our game is progressing rather well.  I have the engine we will be using and it is rather simple to use.  All the female characters have been written up and we will be starting on the storyline, dialogue, events and scenarios.  The one thing we need more of right now is artists.  As of right now, Calvin has graciously volunteered his services as an artist, but we would like at least one more artist to volunteer so that things can progress quickly and smoothly.  Also, we don't want to put too much strain on Calvin!

At the beginning of June, we were contemplating on having a video game party with food.  Everyone would bring something to eat or drink and we could all play games together for a few hours.  If you have time then let me know!  Once I know who can come, I'll make a Facebook event with the date.  We can probably have it at my place in Highland/Alpine if that is not too inconvenient for everyone.

Lots of games have come out!  Portal 2, Brink, L.A. Noire, and scores more.  I am playing through Resonance of Fate so I have not gotten to any of the brand new ones yet, but if anyone else has then feel free to post a review!

All right gamers, nice talking with you and I hope to see you later! Peace.

Artists Wanted!

We need artists for the new game we are creating! Seeing as it is a RPG/Dating Sim, we will need art for the characters, backgrounds, items, etc.  We will most likely be doing a visual novel style of game so the artwork is very important.  Anyone can apply!  If you are interested then email me, comment, or whatever to let me know.  Tell me what you think your specialties are as an artist and how much of your time you can put into this.  Thank you everyone!
