And why are pencils yellow?
My mother and father made fun of a lot of things – including yellow pencils – in their childhood, but there’s something about a yellow pencil when it sits out on the counter so darkly that just screams “fantastic”. The fact that they’ve been around so long that they’ve become the norm means they must be pretty common, right?
Except they’re not. “The yellow pencil of ink has a somewhat rare but distinctively yellow sheen that is so bright and reflective it will look white just by itself.” There are three main kinds of yellow pencils: black, red and blue.

As I began my travels, there were things on my mind. Things that I needed to fix, things I needed to do, and things that needed to be done immediately. And while I had some time to contemplate how to resolve those problems as the project grew, I also knew that it was my passion and I needed to do whatever was necessary to keep my enthusiasm in line.
The things I need to fix
I’ve been working on the game since the very beginning of alpha in 2010. After a couple of years, it was time to move on to our next development cycle and start over. At that point, I was already at the point where the end was within reach: I was confident that when the time came I could do what I needed to do to complete the game I had been
