Too quiet

No doubt a lot of you have noticed a little too much radio silence over on the MH channel lately. Trust me when I say that we're working on new stuff, and that it'll be ready relatively soon! Marble Hornets isn't over, I promise! We've got a ways to go yet!

Doing the writing for Slender: The Arrival ended up taking a bit more time than I originally estimated it would. Lots of idea bouncing between us and the developers, which is great. Having more fresh perspectives does wonders for getting the right ideas right, and getting rid of ideas that are actually kind of stupid. They were cool enough to continuously send us up to date alphas to play though and build things around. It's probably an unconventional way to do things like this, but hey, whatever works. I'm pretty confident in the writing now, and just submitted what is hopefully the final version of the script a few days ago. There's still a few things here and there that need some tweaking, but by and large, our work with the game is finishing up. It was a fantastic experience that I would gladly do again. Hope you sweetie pies enjoy it.
(Wanna see a trailer? There's one right over here fresh out of the oven)

Now that that's wrapping up (I guess that's a Christmas joke), it's time to get back to focusing full time on the next MH entry. It was nice to kind of step away from it for a bit to work on something different, and something that I personally needed. Writing for Slender helped with the slight burn out I had been feeling since finishing all the crazy intensive work on Entry #65. The trade off, of course, being that it's caused a longer wait than any of us were expecting on new MH content. So for that aspect, I apologize. BUT, we're back in the saddle, and are planning shoots as soon as we're all back from our Christmas family fun time, so sit tight for just a little longer!

  3. Take all the time you need. I know this is the last season of MH so it's nice to savor the flavor of still having new entries to look forward to. Plus it gives Newer fans time to catch up on all the previous entries and get them up to speed. I look forward to the game and Entry #66.

  4. Yeah, don't worry about making us wait! It's good to get some kind of break when you're burning out like that, because it means that you can get back on your A-game and give the work what it deserves. I don't think anyone's worried that you've just up-and-quite, you're too engaged with and kind to your fans for that.

    Best of luck and awaiting #66 with fearful anticipation. :D

  5. You guys, really, don't feel obliged to rush just because some fans are impatient. In the end, the wait between entries won't even matter, only the quality of each one will! :D And I'm thinking that many of us are going to be distracted for awhile with Christmas and/or other winter time festivities anyway. You guys should relax as well! Have a great holiday, and we'll look forward to your inevitable return! =)
