Welcome to the The Website is Down Dev Blog! I am Josh Weinberg, the creator of The Website is Down Webseries. I’m currently working on an adventure game called… The Website is Down Adventure Game – In which you, humble idiot, play Web Dude: genius and all-around misanthrope.
Unfortunately there are many things are conspiring against me in this effort. Primarily, I have:
- No time
- No money
Well how screwed am I really, though? Let’s check the Internet. Ah, here’s an illuminating answer to the first question:
“some games take a long time 2 make and some dont”
Tom’s Hardware Forum
Bam! Problem solved. This game will definitely be one of those that doesn’t take a long time 2 make.
As for the second question, unfortunately, Giraffe is not very helpful: “idk wat the biggest budget is“. Well shit, Giraffe, get it together. I’m not looking for an upper bound anyway… I want someone to tell me it’s going to be quick and painless. I guess I’ll have to step up and present some original research here:
“some games r expensive and sum are cheap”

Just depends on how many graphics and buttons you need! Luckily I don’t need any of either. Bam!
So there you have it. According to the Internet I’m not fucked at all. Full steam ahead.
