Introducing Garb & Corncob: Copyright Calamity

Last night on Twitch, I made a surprise announcement: Garb & Corncob now has a subtitle! Garb & Corncob: Copyright Calamity chronicles the duo of Garb & Corncob as they go on a quest to free themselves from the shackles of copyright infringement! Catch the full announcement, including the reveal of Corncob’s Unoriginal Form and a tease at the game’s antagonist, below!

Twitch Plans

As mentioned at the beginning of this month, I have set up a brand new Twitch channel. After a few test streams, I have decided to stick with Twitch as my livestreaming platform of choice. I currently intend to stream for roughly 2 hours each Saturday and Sunday. Saturday streams will consist of art and game development, while Sunday streams will consist of gameplay. I originally intended to have scheduled start times for each stream, but these plans unfortunately do not work with my constantly-changing college schedule.

I will be going live this weekend with avatar sketching and Xenoblade Chronicles 2 side quests! I hope you’ll join me, and I hope to see this channel grow strong!

Instagram, Twitter, and Twitch

Hey all! I’ve made a few changes to my various social media accounts, and I wanted to let everyone know what’s changed!

My Instagram username has changed from “corngamer” to “garbdev”. I’ve been meaning to change my username over there for awhile now, but I’ve struggled to come up with a good username since my own name has already been taken.

Coinciding with the Instagram name change, Corncob’s Twitter account, @CorncobTweets, has changed to @GarbDev, with me as the account’s head. Corncob’s done a good job of structuring the content output on the account, so while I am taking the wheel, I don’t intend to change what’s posted there.

Finally, I mentioned in a previous post my plans to return to streaming in late September. I’ve been wanting to test out streaming on Twitch before I bring back regular weekly streams, as I feel the platform may be a better fit for the content I am trying to produce. As such, I have created a Twitch channel! I intend to do some test streams on the channel within the next few weeks to see how everything goes over there. Announcements for these test streams will be limited to my Discord server, so join if you wish to be notified when I go live with testing!

Thanks for checking out what’s new! I’m hard at work on game development and preparing for the return of weekly streams, and I can’t wait to show people what I’ve been working on!

Streaming Hiatus

I have hinted at this for the past few weeks, but the time has come to put it into an official announcement: I am going to take a break from streaming for the next month or so. The poor reception to my current streams has opened my eyes to the fact that I need to restructure how I go about streaming, but unfortunately this reception has also taken a heavy toll on my mental health. I need time to both rest and figure out a new direction to take my streams in. I would like to return to streaming sometime in late September – although this is not the definite plan –  and I will make sure to keep people updated on any changes I will be making.

Thanks for reading. I apologize for disappointing anyone with this news, but I feel that using this time for reflection and restructuring will ultimately make for better streams in the future.
