Every End Has a Beginning
So, this is it. Finally we have a website up and going. Words cannot describe how great this makes us feel. After a few years of messing about with other side projects I was finally able to come back to the one that matters.
But, what is this? This is the website for us, the Bandit Revolvers. A duo that's dedicated to entertaining the masses with our thrilling stories and entertaining games.
There are a lot of things to still do around here before things start looking a bit more to my tastes. The forum is basically unstyled and has no way back to the front page - which is non-existant at this point in time. However, the look of the rest of the site I am pleased with.
Time to Stop Designing and Start Doing
One thing that I have had to understand about web-design over the 9 years I've been doing it is that design is an evolutionary process. Very rarely can I design a site, plop it down, and just declare it 100% ready for the world (or a client).
You don't even want to know how long my co-founder and I have been designing stories and games. We have so many incomplete - yet 100% certifiably awesome - projects it's laughable. I'm laughing right now writing about it.
Creative people in general can spend years and years designing and dreaming, and reordering, and the throwing it all away, and replotting again etc. Unfortunately there comes a point where you have to put your foot down and say, "Fuck it, this is it." and release your work out there in the wild. Out there completely naked against the harsh anonymous critisims of the internet.
So basically this blog is for us to be able to hold ourselves accountable to our projecs and to also talk about what we're doing, why we're going to do it, and how we're doing it.
