  • Hey everyone, This is the last time I'll be posting for "Maniak Gaming". It's been a crazy ride these past 4 almost 5 years, but I think it's time I put this behind me and begin something new. I started Maniak Gaming when I was about 15 or 16 as just a community. I always wanted to just give people something that they would enjoy. I wanted to have a community that people would get home from work or school and just hop on the computer and be able to play games with people from around the world that they considered friends. To give people a little extra while playing games. I was always close with all of the regulars on my servers I enjoyed having that communication always open. I then began having so many dreams for it and it just got out of control. I began developing games and thought it would be a good idea to go from gaming community to game developer as well all under the same name. And I even released a game that was a disaster, as a kid I didn't know what I was getting into, I was very unprepared for everything. I continued to learn how to develop but since I had a game development company going I felt that I had to be developing another game. So I rushed into it again, that was quickly shot down and I realized I was unprepared again. Everything is beginning to fall apart and rather than try to put all the pieces back together I'm deciding to pull the plug on Maniak Gaming. This way I can just focus on learning more about game development and be ready when I decide to start anything up again. I have a lot of learning to do and I have to figure my life out. This started as a fun little community when I was just a kid and I'd like to leave it at that. Put it all behind me and just be able to learn from this experience, I've put almost 5 years of my life into this, I just need time to myself maybe and just have a chance at a fresh start. I've put about 5 years of my life into this and It's a bitter sweet thing to finally decide to end it. Although this is the end for Maniak Gaming, this is not the end for me or my love of gaming. I have big plans for the future and they will begin to unfold when I am ready. This is to a new start for me, another chance to realize what I did wrong and how I can bounce back and get back into the gaming scene. When I'm ready of course, gaming is my passion, I will never give up my dreams, this is only a small roadblock in this game we call life. Thank you for everyone who has been a part of this in the past or present. This is Goodbye. Sincerely, George Yockachonis jr. Founder of Maniak Gaming (Maniak Gaming April 2009 - September 2014)

    Announcing "Project:Boundless"

    Hey everyone,

    I've been so busy lately that I haven't been able to really develop anything. 

    So I'm putting "The End is Nigh" on hold for a bit. 

    I'm getting my life in order and just, you know, living. I'm busy working and just doing other things I can't devote myself to making a game full time, plus I still want to brush up and expand my game development knowledge. So I want to start a little project. I like to call it "Project:Boundless", you may or may not remember my first released game "Oh Wow an RPG Game", I had huge expectations with it but the game engine I was using was so restricting and I couldn't do anything I wanted, I had so much pressure to release updates and it was too much and Iw as very young and had no idea what I was doing or getting into. So I stopped and began learning other engines(Unity, UE, etc) and now I have much more knowledge and I want to continue that idea. But start from scratch and have no real pressure on myself. So this is a project, for me, and for you. 

    I just want to take my time, and learn more about game development as well as showing you guys basically step by step how I turn nothing into a full playable game. You'll be able to basically play the game as it's made. It will all be browser based(up until it gets too large) so you won't have to continue downloading new versions. I will also be completely open with everything I'm doing with the game. Complete changelogs between versions, I'll be answering any questions and also take advice from everyone.

    My goal for the final outcome of this game is to have a HUGE fantasy world populated with so much adventure, action, and just......anything. To be able to play this game with almost no limitations, you will be able to play the game how you want and the world will change with everything you do. A true RPG experience.

    I'm pretty excited to see how this all pans out and see if anyone follows this game from the ground up.
