The focus of the blog will be shifting, rather drastically but not so dramatically as the shift will occur over a period of time.
The focus will still be gaming related (with a dash of tech) on the whole, but we will be focusing more on certain types of games more. That’s not to say other genres won’t be covered, but it will be selective, like we’ve always been except that which types or particular games we spotlight will be changing.
Due to time constraints, I need to focus my energies on the inevitable, as a result I’ve had to actually cancel, change or put on hold upcoming projects related to the blog.
This included cancelling interviews with non indie developers - which I will more specifically address once the correspondence between myself and the studio on this is over and i’m clear to do so. It also included the cancellation of certain videos and streams (they’re scheduled to start around the corner).
At the very end of 2013, I wrote a post regarding the past year [link], the current one, and my vision and hopes for Kilabytes going forward. The changes that will be coming come as part of efforts for a realization of this vision, one where Kilabytes addresses relevant gaming news and information that you could really do with, as well as opinion and analysis on various aspects of gaming.
As mentioned earlier, time is a price that’s I'm required pay to bring about these changes, so on top of cancelling content I will also be cancelling regular coverage of certain titles whilst increasing the coverage of others.
The titles that are subject to these changes have been selected based on how well or poorly they fit with the new focus as well as time constraints not permitting thorough enough coverage of elements of those titles - which could be relevant to the regular experience of players - for the blog. You haven’t seen these elements - such as in game lore -,mentioned before as a result of unwillingness to half-cover something only to have our stance or opinion on topics be misconstrued.
I’ll announce some more specific information about the changes soon, though info on the biggest changes will come a little later.
