I've been back for about a week now. I'd say it's harder to return than it was to go away; technology in particular feels really bizarre and kind of alienating, particularly when you've been traveling where there is no electricity and people grow their own food.
Neverthleess I'm back on AV. For the next month or so I'll be preparing my IGF submission. I'm not going to go too crazy, but the Secret Feature is in. Still kind of debating on whether I should include some way for the IGF judges to skip to that part or if they should have to play until they get to it. It's a bit like the Half Life 2 Gravity Gun in that I don't introduce it immediately, but about an hour into the game.
