Guys! I am afraid this weekly recap will be incredibly empty, which is a shame seeing as this is our 300th week of blogging about the creation of Secrets of Grindea!! :( However, I’ve actually been destroyed by a nasty flu from hell that decided to take a turn for the worse over 2½ weeks in (hello fever), meaning I haven’t been able to work or blog any during this week. To make matters worse, I brought Teddy down with me, so the only one well enough to do anything aside from sleep and cough this week has been Fred (hopefully he manages to escape the nasty clutches of this evil flu)!
BUT, we do have some news about our company!
As you may or may not know, for these last four years or so, we’ve had our office in a spare room (the guest room) in our apartment. It’s been pretty nice having your workspace so close, but it has also had its own challenges, such as being easily distracted by the pile of dirty dishes in the kitchen when you should be working, or simply not knowing where work ends and where free time begins (hint: it never really ends when you technically live in the office).
Last time we went to a semi-regular After Work event for the game design industry here on the island, we heard there were office spaces available where some of the other companies work, and the more we thought about it, the more we realized we might actually benefit from having a small office outside of our home. This way we’d be able to keep work and free time more separate, hopefully making each more focused, while actually getting outside more (enforced 2×10 minute walks through a world heritage city filled with ruins and amazing architecture to get to the office and back, sounds good to me) compared to leaving the apartment twice per week for groceries.
So two weeks ago we went to check on one of the spaces, and we kind of fell in love! It’s on the third floor, rather small (making it cheap!) but not much smaller than the space we’re currently in. It honestly didn’t take much thought before we decided to go for it!
It’ll be available to us from the 1st of December, so expect some exciting posts as we move into our new office and make it ours. I don’t have any pictures of it right now, but I’ll make sure to take plenty once we’re actually moving in. Unfortunately, this is all I have for this week, but next should be a regular recap with lots of juicy stuff! Stay tuned and have a great week until then :)
