IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE
CAN ANYONE HEAR ME
Ethan? Noob? Glenn? Mommy? Anyone?
It is with both a heavy and relieved heart that Riddles and I are announcing an official hiatus for and from Riddlethos.com.
Riddles took a brief one earlier, and we’ve had some short breaks, but otherwise we’ve been working at and on this site for over a year and a half.
While we both adore this site, the long and short of it is that this Riddlethos isn’t what we want it to be, but we don’t currently have any of the resources – monetary or otherwise – to give it the transformation it desperately requires.
Not just that, but we’d like some time and space from the site to come back fresh and inspired when we’re finally ready to relaunch, whenever that may be.
Riddles and I also used to be friends before this website instead of both friends and co-website-owners, so it’ll be nice to have a conversation with him without a necessity to talk shop.
All of this being said, I’m well aware that April 1st falls on this week, and that last year Riddles and I planned an elaborately set-up prank not entirely dissimilar to the way both he and I have been talking about site-exhaustion in our recent posts.
This – I promise you – is coincidence.
If you hold out hope, I am infinitely flattered, but I also apologize in advance for your disappointment.
Speaking of which, one of my focuses with the time and mindspace this will create is my Xbox Indie Games title, Lusipurr’s Fountain of Perpetual Disappointment. I have too many things lined up for it that I perhaps don’t deserve with all my procrastination, so I’m going to finally take advantage and make the bloody game. If I create any sort of dev blog for it, I’ll be sure to post the link in an edit to this post.
Speaking of that, I hear there are many big positive changes on the way for our sister site Lusipurr.com, so you can head over there while you wait.
There’s no timeline for when Riddlethos will return, but I promise you that it is not dead. Hell, I just renewed the domain for another 2 years. I truly feel that both Riddles and I – and especially all of our readers – have created a fantastic atmosphere and some unique and quality content that has become a living entity in both the minds of Riddles and myself.
I’m trying to wax poetic, but nothing’s coming out and I’ve said enough and Riddles still needs to say his piece. Just know that I will miss this site terribly, and that’s part of the point.
Until then, keep up with me on Twitter, and see you whenever the phoenix rises.
A Bittersweet Final Word from Riddles
When I first conceived the idea for what became Riddlethos.com, I was sitting a dark, closed-down restaurant at the end of the bar, where I had two barstools pulled down. I was sipping a Gin and Tonic if I recall, and I thought to text my friend Ethan about a certain vague idea in my mind. This is, I believe, exactly what I said:
“You, me… we could go places.”
Indeed we could. And we can. And perhaps we will.
