Hi all;
My name is Tansel, and my nickname is Tanshaydar.

I'm working as a CIO and Software Engineer in an R&D company and studied as a computer science student in college.
I write stories and try that stories become a game. White Night was first example, more will follow.

More about me?

Hi, you've probably already answered this but I couldn't find any information XD Is the custom content from WN available for use in custom stories (given full credit to you, of course)?

Well I am about to play White Night for the first time it looks like fun if the game you are working on is anything like this I will be the first to but it. I just bought Amnesia A Machine For Pigs and I am very disapointed because it is not as good as amnesia was. You don't have to look for anything but notes basically and you never run out of oil. Then anything that you can pick up is something that you will use. I thought that took a whole lot of the fun factor out of it because there is no searching or wondering what is going to be important to use and you do not have worry about your supply of tinder boxes and oil. I think with out those features it is really boring. In any event when I watched the preview for white night I thought it looks more fun then the game I just purchased for twenty dollars.

Hi Holly,
Thanks for the kind words about White Night. I cannot guarantee that you'll enjoy White Night, but well, it has more interaction and item searching than AAMFP.

I am a guy who goes for story, and gameplay comes second. For the new game I'm working on, I can't disclose much information, but I am pretty confident it will be a good one. Advanced AI and use of other mechanics will blend just fine. It is much better than White Night.
