AFK_Weye Turns Ten

February 26th, 2009, as it turns out, marks the public release date of that most excellent Oblivion mod, AFK_Weye, to the world. There’s a lot I want to say about that, and in due course I imagine I shall – plans are in motion. For now, let me make a couple of points:

– According to Nexus, somewhere over 19,000 people have downloaded (and hopefully enjoyed) AFK_Weye. It’s been a Nexus file of the month, was #2 in its category for a while, been featured in articles, and been the subject of a long-running let’s play series. People thought it was good enough to translate into French. That any of that should ever have happened remains slightly astonishing to me for a thing I sort of did on a lark and never expected to gain any traction, but I still get comments about it sometimes. Wild.

– Looking back ten years on, the creative period that sparked AFK_Weye was a truly remarkable time in my life, one of those blessings that you hopefully make use of while they’re there. I spent a lot of years in the shadow of that time, and I think I’m in another such period now. They are good days.

What a time that was. More later.
