Goodbye dear friend

My cat Batman, from when he was a kitty until recent days

It has been less than a year since I had to write about one of my beloved pet’s death, that here I am again 🙁 The black cat you see above was Batman, we called him like that because of his profile with the pointed ears!

I am not going to lie: I’m very, very sad. Not all cats are the same, this one was particularly smart, playful, and he used to pay me a visit at least once a day to my office (upstairs). It was surely one of my favorite cats!

Even this time, we waited and hoped until the last day that he could make it. Last Sunday, after brushing him in the morning, he was purring and looked happy like always, even if I knew he wasn’t OK. He wasn’t eating since three days and not drinking since almost two. Then as usual he went for a walk in the woods nearby, finding the energy I don’t know where. But when he came home that evening, he was clearly in pain, so I had to take the hard decision 🙁

I’ll miss you, Batman.

p.s. he was the cat that is supposed to be in the Heileen series. For obvious reasons I couldn’t call him Batman in the game too! But it was him. I know he’ll live forever in my games.

Once again, the show must go on: Seasons Of The Wolf Act 3 beta

Even if I’m working slower than usual, this week I also started SOTW act 3 beta! So far things are going well, with help of forum testers I’ve fixed already a great amount of bugs. Also, in this act you can do all the romance talks and unlock the romance CGs! (There are still more CGs for the ending in act4 though)

All the romance dialogues take place in Rowinda’s bathhouse. An appropriate place 😉

There is only act4 left, and if things go well might be ready for end of month, though is more likely mid-November. I am still waiting for some missing art (a few tilesets also for act3) but the main story and coding is already complete.

    He looks a lot like my Micia, whom I lost almost 3 years ago. :/

    You know, I don’t know whether you watched Galaxy express 999 when you were a kid but there was an episode that I still remember and gives me a bit of melancholy to this day about a girl that lives on a planet on her own, with all the pets that people loved and aren’t alive anymore and takes care of them. It might sound silly, but I do think of that when I’m sad about the pets I lost (the area I used to live in in Italy is very bad for cats, I won’t go in details because it would make you angry) that there’s a tiny tiny chance they’re all there, being taken care of.

    I’m a child, I know… still believing in fairytales.

      I watched that cartoon when was younger a bit, but not much so I don’t know about that episode. The idea though is really cute, albeit very melancholic indeed 🙂
      I believe that there is some God and in the fact that there’s something beyond our life. Not necessarily “Heaven” but it could be a new dimension, or something beyond our imagination where we interact with all beings in a different way. But I really hope there’s *something* because I really cannot believe that we won’t “see” again all the pets and people we lost.

    I’m very sorry to hear about your cat. I find it really sweet and heartwarming to include him in one of your games. I kind of hope to immortalize my dog like that in one of my projects, too. (He’s still with us, but he’s approaching old age pretty soon, so you never know)

      I’m trying to put one of my pet on every game. Nina was on Always Remember Me (and is Batman’s sister). Othello is on Bionic Heart, and so on. Still need to add them all 🙂

    I’m so sorry for the loss of Batman. My pet bird got sick and died this Summer so I know what you’re going through.

    Hey, I just brought the game and am trying to find the download link, but there is no demo button as the instructions say.

    I’m so sorry for your loss!

    Sorry for your loss. When you lose a pet it hurts you so deeply and sometimes people act like nothing happened.
