I Don’t Believe in Omens…

…Really, I don’t.

But…when I got home, I noticed this.

That ankh is the one that came with my original copy of Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar. It has been on my keyring for over 15 years, and, needless to say, has endured an incredible amount of abuse. For a long time I thought it was indestructible, despite being made of rather soft metal.

But on the day I get laid off from yet another game development job, I look down and notice that it has finally broken.

I don’t believe in omens, but…damn.

The End…Again

At 10:30 this morning…I was laid off from Stardock, along with many other people from all across the company.

Elemental shipped ten days ago. That’s how disastrous this has been for Stardock.
