Indie Patron Previews Nevergrind Online

Over the last week, gamers from the Indie Patron Discord Server have taken a strong liking to Nevergrind Online. We have seen as many as 18 players online at the same time! That may not sound like much, but for a closed beta for an indie game it’s quite a lot! Not only are a lot of people finding us and asking for keys, but they’re also investing a large chunk of time into the game! In 2022 alone, gamers have played for a total of 27 days of playtime!

Check out Indie Patron‘s coverage in the video below:

Joe always links to and documents his sources so readers are empowered to do independent research and make up their own minds.

Joe Leonard Researching Controversial Topics

How does it work? It’s all quite simple! All you have to do is download whatever my conclusions, which are always facts and never opinions. You download my conclusions just like a computer downloads information from a server and store them in your brain. Kind of like how a computer saves data in RAM or on a hard drive. We live in the future! Anachronistic data analysis models where millions of individuals research and come to their conclusions are bad for social cohesiveness and lead to chaos! You don’t like chaos, do you? NO! Only you can stop this madness!

That’s why you shouldn’t waste any time! When you’re looking for answers, go directly to Joe Leonard for all of your fact-checking needs!

Tiffany Dover — Dead or Alive?

After several days of complete silence and an apparent gag order on her friends and family, people are starting to ask questions about the status of Tiffany Dover. I created a Twitter thread and a video which fully explore the topic. What do you think?

Fastest Naturally Aspirated Toyota Celica GT of All Time With Time Slip

Okay, one of my claims to fame is that, at least for a significant period of time, I had the fastest known naturally aspirated 7th generation Toyota Celica GT quarter mile times in the world. In one particularly good run, I drove a 14.78 @ 93.42 mph. Not bad for a four-banger rated for 140 hp from the factory!

My Celica was a 5-speed with a an Injen air intake, header replacements, a fuel computer with some minor adjustments (which maybe did nothing), and a lot of weight reduction. I removed the entire exhaust system. Removed all of the interior except the driver’s seat. I removed the tow hooks. I removed the fog lights. I deflated the front tires to about 22 psi. All of that allowed me to break into the 14s and record a 14.78 quarter mile!

2021 Peloton Bike Review – My Best Purchase of the Year

Well, 2020 has been one hell of a year. Once COVID-19 dropped and the gyms closed, I knew that it was time to pull the trigger and purchase a Peloton. I received it after five weeks and I haven’t had a single moment of regret. My wife and I both use it regularly and it has helped us stay fit throughout the difficult circumstances of a global pandemic.

It doesn’t seem that we’ll be getting back to normal any time soon. Maybe you should pick one up, too?! Watch my video and see if it’s the right solution for you.

In the video embedded below, I break down the most compelling evidence that maxwellhill is, in fact, Ghislaine Maxwell. In my mind it’s almost certain that this power moderator account has been in her control for the last 14 years.

Nevergrind Online Development Continues!

I was balancing time between Nevergrind Online and other projects, but I would like to announce that I am completely focusing all of my spare time to the completion of Nevergrind Online! As with all game and software development ever, I am hesitant to point to a release date, but I will say that I am hopeful for a 2021 release.

Note that the version that previews Nevergrind Online on this website is an extremely early version that only included character creation, old artwork, and showed off the multiplayer chat room environment in town. That was all developed before deciding to target the release for Steam instead. After enjoying modest success with our first title, Firmament Wars, we decided that Nevergrind Online would be perfect as a distributed app on Steam.

Nevergrind Online will be a co-operative multiplayer dungeon crawler with up to six party members. It will draw inspiration from a variety of games including EverQuest, World of Warcraft, Phantasy Star, Diablo, and even Darkest Dungeon. The goal is to design a socially-oriented, challenging, multi-player cooperative experience for a group of friends. This is the kind of game you and your friends can play all night on a weekend while eating pizza and chugging Mountain Dew! If you don’t want to pull an all-nighter on a weekday while playing this game, then we did something wrong.

Nevergrind Online will be quite a bit different from our first installment. First of all, Nevergrind Online will not be a browser game. This time it is being developed with distribution on Steam in mind. So every nook and cranny of this game will be engineered for the best possible experience for gamers on Steam. The original Nevergrind only made money from micro-payments on bank slots. Perhaps that made sense for a browser game, but it’s a business model that is often leaves a door open to allow greed to taint the integrity of the game.

Frankly, we don’t think all forms of micro-payments are bad. For example, original Nevergrind made revenue by allowing players to expand the number of bank slots that were available. This is a great example of a feature that optionally expanded upon the game without tainting the game. This was a feature that I wish existed in Diablo 2! The bank space was so tiny and I wanted to save so many items!

We also have many more exciting surprises that we cannot announce quite yet, but we’re eager to make an announcement when the time is right! Until then you can join our Neverworks Discord for more updates!

Download WarWizard 2 – The Demo That Led to EverQuest

I acquired a copy of the WarWizard 2 demo developed by Brad McQuaid and his crew at MicroGenesis. In the interest of posterity, and with Brad’s permission, I am distributing a copy of the demo on my blog:

Download the WarWizard 2 Demo

This is the demo that gave birth to EverQuest. John Smedley came across it and made a proposition to Brad to help create EverQuest. Just a few years later, EverQuest hit the shelves in March 16th, 1999.
