It's really irresponsible to expect to make a living producing one work on one site every year. With Steam, iOS and Google Play, you have many, many options. Unless Kongregate is paying you 5 digits (in pounds) per game, explore other avenues. I'd really love to see more of your work, and that's only going to happen if you get the resources to survive while making them.

Exceptionally well said. I wish I had your eloquence; criticism is a a sign of concern from healthy people (there are true sociopaths out there, but they are less than 2% of the population at most), but I don't have a talent for the soft touch.

Tatsuya Ishida, creator of "Sinfest" shares a very similar trajectory with Pseudolonewolf. I'd like to say things got better for him, but that would be dishonest. That is not a reason to say I don't have high hopes and confidence for Pseudo, and wish him the best of luck finding whatever support he needs.

The reason I replied "strongly negatively" is twofold: 1) you spend so much energy on judging you stopped creating, and 2) you are externalizing your emotional health, and not accepting the consequences of that decision as your fault.

A long long time ago I found this place interesting, and I am still a big fan of the Mardek series. However at some point (I can't tell you when exactly, I was never very active) the emphasis on personality profiles devolved from self-discovery to discrimination and bigotry. The source of that was from the top; Pseudolonewolf. You has created wonderful things, and you has suffered unduly as a consequence due to the callousness of the internet. My experience with you, however, is you reduce the complexity of people when discussing them. Humanity is a much richer tapestry than any categorical reduction.

Edit: Darn I miscounted. Guess not :( Four non-double '!'?

Well, as someone who has very recently dealt with depression loneliness, and college, I can only offer my best guess on what is likely to improve your happiness the most:

Focus on university, and making friends in real life despite differences. Simplify fighunter to a fan site for your games. Continue making whatever art allows you to express yourself best.

I love your games and hope to see more.

Disclaimer: this is a question, not an accusation.

Have you considered that you are distancing yourself from people for either of the following reasons?
*) You find self-esteem in coping without help, especially if it makes you feel different
*) You find security in people expressing concern after you ask them to leave you alone

My delivery is blunt, but I ask out of concern. How seriously have you explored the possibility that the things that are making you unhappy are something you actually desire? There are many reasons people end up in such loops. I again hope you can find the support you need (not necessarily want), because you are a good person who deserves to be happy.

You have given me joy through your art; words of encouragement through this site are the only way I know how to repay you.

I never been much more than a lurker, but I must comment on how impressive I find your posts. You surmise almost all the reasons I feel compelled to comment now in a way that more clearly gets across the concern behind all these replies. As another mere fan of PLW's work, thank you for putting the time and effort into trying to help with your words.

You are not going to go from an unhealthy "you" to a healthy "us". That has everything to do with the problems being left unresolved, and is completely independent of personality types. I was initially fascinated with your site's direction to add extra dimensions with the personality profiles, but you are so dismissive of differences that you are offending me. It doesn't take a soul-mate to understand the situation you are going through, nor help you through it.

If you are so critical of other people, I can only imagine how critical you are of yourself. You don't have to stop searching for "the one", but you would gain more now from searching for happiness for yourself independent of others, and a social network so you don't feel so alone. Imperfect does not necessitate bad.

I share you concerns almost exactly. I would encourage PLW to seek help, but he appears to shun it. I think he is missing how many people on this site know the feelings he is going through. Hell, I am struggling through my education (2nd attempt at senior year) due to anxiety, loneliness, heartbreak, depression, hopelessness, etc. as I basically fell apart after leaving the structure of high school. Despite all the negative experiences I had, at least I was provided a clear path to channel them. Now I am still reluctant to seek help, still not coping well, but I do see clear as day too many similarities in how PLW talks and acts. There are other people who know how hard it can be, especially when it's not the physical that is the limit of what most see. Yes I am an internet stranger going through my own existential crisis, but as another human who empathizes with others in pain, I hope you can find the help you need pseudo, because the steps you are describing are not a viable solution.

You need a friend right now, because even if you do find that perfect match, you are not in a position to build that relationship you crave. I've been there, and I learned that lesson the hard way by losing her, which is the only reason I am forcing you to read my advice despite repeated calls against it. It is a problem for me to see, even by random posts on the internet, someone heading towards the same mistakes I've already made. So it's not for you that I post, it's for my selfish piece of mind, so at least I can say to myself "I tried". If you don't find happiness with yourself, nothing else will last, not to mention it is harder to materialize in the first place.

Also, he is right. You need to do things you initially reject, go to social events when you don't feel like going out, and yes "fake it until you make it". There isn't another way, you are in a negative feedback loop.
