Greetings players. Another year of the Prophet Driller’s existence has filled up. As he turns 22 today, we can give a summary of 2021.
As 2020 was marked as the year of the coronavirus incident, we are seeing the world on the road to restoration. 2021 unfortunately started dark during the middle of a massive coronavirus wave. Around that time, a vaccine was put out. Things were brutal for America as that year started on a stale note. The sudden attack on the US capitol on January 6 marked history with Trump being the first federal office holder and president to be impeached twice, but we still have yet to get a conviction on a single president. At least we were given a new president two weeks later, with healing being the core focus of the new administration.
Even after Biden was inaugurated, many were surprised to see former presidential candidate John Kerry, the democratic nominee in the 2004 presidential election, take on the role of a climate envoy. February saw an unprecedented event in Texas with multiple winter storms thanks to a jut in the jet stream. That’s one of the consequences of global warming – stronger storms can result thanks to more and more warmer air .
The first half of the year focused on the development of Chuhou Joutai 2: Paraided!, and we were able to complete it six weeks before the game was scheduled to release. Around that time, the tenth brood of 17-year cicadas re-emerged in fifteen states, and will never come back until 2038. However, there are other broods of 17-year and even 13-year cicadas to look forward to, though you’ll have to travel to that respective area just to see them.
We did have to make a few sacrifices along the way with the loss of Prince Philip of Denmark in April to Colin Powell of the US Secretary of State. But either way, we got the event we wanted. The Olympics which were delayed from 2020 were held behind shut doors in Japan, but at least they had to get that done and over with. Many of us also condemned the fall of Afghanistan when America withdrew all of their troops prior to the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
We only have two months left until the end of 2021. 2022 is expected to continue the restoration of the world thanks to the COVID-19 vaccines in place. At least our Prophet picked them up. What about boosters? We may have to get them too, but we should be able to end the pandemic as soon as possible.
Enough said, we are still in preproduction of the Touhou 4: Lotus Land Story NES Demake. At least the soundtrack is done and we are still producing the sprites. The background tiles are done. All we need are the character sprites and ending images (the most challenging part). Then all we have left is the programming. We hope you have a good day.
