BurstLimit Game by DragonwolfRooke
BurstLimit Game
Heyo! Melonhead (or otherwise known as the brother of Rooke) here! After contacting Rooke while she is out on her mission, she has agreed (very happily) to join the development team for a game project, which I have been creating independently for around a year now, after she returns home. This project is getting quite close to being launched on kick starter, but before It gets to the funding stage, I was looking to induct a few more people onto the team.

There is only so much a single person can do without going clinically insane, so Rooke told me that I could reach out to her fans while she was away. 
So In specifics, I'm looking for people to do the following jobs.

-In game artist- 
Person who creates in game art pieces such as Character select portraits, menu art, and possible story mode "emotion" portraits for movie sequences (akin to those of sonic Battle or most dating sims).
-concept artist-
Yes! even your idea's are viable! Even though I will be personally taking the role for designing playable characters, someone needs to take the role of designing enemies. For this job, I would just need you to funnel as many sketched out concept designs as you can for us here at the studio to bring to life. 
-2D animators-
Now for the solo campaign of the game, the playable fighters are going to be in 3D, while the enemies will be 2D sprites. This is where 2D animators come in. Any 2D animators will work with the concept artists to bring enemies into the game.
-3D animators-
Fighters take forever to animate alone. like seriously, it takes me a week to animate one fighter alone. If you're into 3D animation, preferably blender, then you'd be good to have on the team.

Now also keep in mind that around 70% percent of the funds received through kickstarter will be going to hiring people to fill these positions. So your work will not be left without a reward!
If you want to be apart of the team, message me at my email

melonhead60@att.net

With subject titled "BURST LIMIT ENTRY" so I don't miss it :)
also if you have any past work to show me send it attached so I can see how good you are.

I hope to work with you in the future

MamaRooke here.  Here are the last two letters from Rooke.  She would love it if you wrote her a letter.  If you can't, post it here and I will try to get it to her.  Her address is in the past journal entries.
You guys are all so great!

Dear Everyone,

This was such a weird week! I'm looking back on it, puzzled, trying to figure out what even happened. Has the week even passed? It went so quickly, and not much really noteworthy happened...well, except for a few things. Mostly the week was a blur. Missionary work is like that a lot. Especially now that I think I'm all settled in to Stockton.

We had exchanges twice this week. Hermana Cardullo is a Sister Training Leader - that means she's in charge of the Sister Missionaries here in Stockton. Teaching them, making sure their needs are met, helping them be their best, etc. There are actually only 4 sisters in Stockton. They don't like sending sister missionaries to this zone, because it's slightly "ghetto", and so it's less safe. But they have to send Spanish Sisters because there's so many Spanish folks - we're needed. Likewise, they have to send sister missionaries who have been called to serve in American Sign Language! So the four of us down here are Hermana Cardullo, me, and then Sister Abbott and Sister Story, the two ASL Sisters.

We live in the same apartment complex, so we hang out a lot anyway. And then once a transfer we need to have exchanges, where we swap companions so that Hermana Cardullo can teach them and work with them. We've been needing to do them but procrastinating, so finally we just did both exchanges in one week. So I spent Tuesday with Sister Story, and Saturday with Sister Abbott.

It was fun - they're both great missionaries and fun people. And they taught me some sign language! I now know how to say, "Hi, my name is Sister Sellers" in sign language. And also the word "purple", which is now used as a "gang sign" by Sister Story and one of our investigators, JP. It was really really funny.

So that was fun to hang out with them. And then something else exciting happened...Hermana got us into a car crash!

Not a big one though. She tried to merge, didn't check her blind spot - and bam, big ole dent in the side of some poor little car, and a little dent in our front corner. We pulled over, and thanks to my experiences in East Sac I was a pro at filling out the paperwork. The folks we hit were, amazingly, a little Spanish family! They were so nice and not angry at all, mostly  just miffed...they had insurance, and so did we, so it was all ok. And we got all their contact info for the insurance, so we'll drop by sometime with "we're sorry" cookies. Maybe that's how they'll find the gospel. The Lord works in mysterious ways - maybe He'll turn a crash into a baptism. :)

Oh, and that was Hermana Cardullo's second crash, so that means I'M driving from now on. Ha ha ha...it'll be fun...

Today and yesterday I haven't driven though, because ironically enough, I threw my back out. XD It's been such a weird week! We had service, pulling weeds and cleaning a garden for a family we started teaching. T he mom, was so sweet. She said, "You MUST be sent from God, because I have been PRAYING for this help." It was wonderful.t She is so absolutely prepared. We got to pass her off to the English missionaries since English is her first language, and she already believes the Book of Mormon is true and has a baptismal date. We're so excited for them. I'm glad I got to be a part of their story. :)

But yes, all the squatting and weed-pulling hurt my back and the next day I could barely move. It's better now but I still limp along like an old lady, so Hermana Cardullo is driving. By tomorrow I should be all back to normal.

So yep, that's been my fun, weird week. We've worked with a lot of people. JP, our investigator, is getting baptized this coming Wednesday, and we're so excited - and so is he! It's so great to see how far he's come. We're so unbelievably proud and happy. It's just the greatest thing in the world to see these people and to help them turn their lives towards God - and to His blessings poured out upon them.

Life is fantastic as a missionary. A chapter of the Book of Mormon I read today that I quite liked was Mosiah 5-6, which is about taking on the name of Christ and making that covenant to serve Him. The Lord really blesses us when we take His name upon us - and I feel so privileged to literally carry His name upon me, upon my missionary badge. But we can all carry His name in our hearts.

Keep working hard and doing well. The work of the Lord rolls forth! Huzzah!

Love,
Hermana Sarah Sellers

Dear Everyone,

This was a busy week! It's funny how I sit down to write everything that happened this week, and often draw a blank. So much happens, that you look back, puzzled. Like, "Did that really only happen a few days ago? Nooo...really?" And yep, it really has. So sometimes my emails, or letters, have ended up being more about the second half of the week that seems more recent. XD

For instance, I almost forgot today that we had Zone Conference this week! It was Tuesday. It was President and Sister Jardine's first zone conference, and it was great. They taught a lot about gratitude and not comparing our results to the results of other missionaries - we are the ones that determine if we are successful missionaries or not, and that has nothing to do with our results but more with who we are. Who we become. It was a really good conference.

This Wednesday, then, JP got baptized! It was so great. The Spirit was strong - Brother Potter, a wonderful brother in the ward Congregation), gave the talk on baptism for him. It was a great talk - the Spirit was so strong. He talked about the story of Peter trying to walk on water to the Savior, and how we need to constantly reach out to the Savior. After his baptism, JP told us he felt like "an empty bin...but in a good way." He's kind of weird but he's awesome. XD And he wants to follow the Savior and live a good life, and that's what counts.

It was funny, because a while back, before he decided to be baptized, our friend  promised him that if he got baptized she'd make potato salad for him. XD It was just a joke, but then at his baptism, she really did bring potato salad for him! It was so funny!

I have so many funny stories related to JP. After church yesterday, as we were walking out, he was hiding in the bushes and jumped out at us yelling, "YAH I'M A MORMON." Ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Let's see, what else? We've kept working hard, Hermana Cardullo and I. Transfers are next week, and there's no chance I'm leaving Stockton...because Hermana Cardullo is going home. She has spent a year and a half on her mission, and thus is finishing it and returning home. It's pretty crazy for her. She can't imagine not being a missionary - and I don't blame her, I feel the same! And I'm only 5 months out. O.O Wow, 5 months already. Time flies. Hermana Cardullo is going home, and so is my first companion Hermana Naatjes. I'll miss them - everyone I know in the mission is going home, ha ha ha! X'D

It'll be interesting to see who my new companion is...I'll let you all know next Tuesday, since that's when P-day will be because of transfers.

I hope everything is going well with all of you. Life in the mission is so sweet, and so short - I hope to use this brief time in my life to its fullest! I'm going to keep working hard and doing my best. You all do the same!

Love,
Hermana Sarah Sellers

Hey there! Rooke here. I'm an artist, animator, writer...pretty much, overall, I'm a storyteller.

There are so many stories I want to tell. Grand stories, small stories, epic sagas or simple moments. Perhaps you'll find some of my stories here. I hope you enjoy them.


If you like my work, go ahead and watch, I'd appreciate it. :)

i'm sorry if i seem....rude, or whatever you call it, and i'm sorry if either me or anyone else has asked you this before....

but....

well, you're christian, yeah?

i know some chirstians who are complete twats, preaching stuff like 'gay people are abominations' or whatever, 'god is life and you are a sinner for not believing' (forgive me for not doing so, i just don't see much point given how crap my life has been so far)

i was just wondering.....are you like that? cus you seem so nice, and all that, but....well, a few of those guys seemed nice as well, until i told them i didn't believe in your god, or asked them thier opinion on gay people. i just....well, you can see why i'm a bit worried here.

again, i'm really sorry if this offends you, but, well....eh, i have this...mental thing that's called paranoia, and it kinda makes me overthink and overworry, like, a LOT. sorry again.

Oi. Since Rooke looks like is gone, i think I will take the liberty to answer you, since I am a christian myself. I hope you don't mind.

First, you have to keep in mind that, since christianity is an ideology, there's a lot of assholes. But is not "because they are christian". Heck, in every ideology there's a whole bunch of assholes.
The problem is... that these assholes are the ones who become the spotlight. And, I repeat myself: this happens in every ideology: the assholes are the ones who make more noise.

I am pretty sure that, In all ideologies, for every 20 "good people" there is 1 asshole. The problem is, that 1 asshole makes more noise than 20 good people.

Secondly, about the homosexuality....  keep in mind that Christianity is a religion about love. But natural love, the love we consider true. We christians don't consider gay love as natural love (I am not going to ellaborate on this since it's not the main point). But, on the other hand, we love gay people. Not because they are gay, it's because they are persons. Like you, like me.

Let me try again: we despite the sin, but love the sinner. We hate homosexuallity, but not the homosexual. We think that homosexuals are wrong, but we don't ... let's say, want to take a sword and go hunt them. We think that they need help and love. A lot of love.

And that applies in everything: you may not believe in God. I belive in God. And it's alright!
You think that I am wrong and I think that you are wrong, but we are not going to hate one each other just beacuse we disagree!

Love and tollerance, right?

But... ff course, there's that bunch of assholes who think that their enemies are the ones who don't think alike. This is why you met... assholes.

Well, I hope I was of some help. See you!

a bit yeah. to be honest, if this doesn't offend you, i am a bit...whatever-the-word-is to find that you think it's wrong too (this is just summing up what you said cus it's a bit of ah...write-full?), but you seem decent and everything, so i'm just gonna label you as one of the good ones.

i think the issue with me is that i've met too many extremists, y'know? mostly muslims, no offence to the nicer ones, but a few christians as well. i'd like to say that this thing is kinda unique to me, steroetyping people after meeting only a certain kind of them, but it really isn't.

however, unlike most people, i can see that some of you (that is, religious people, again no offence) are actually different- so i'm willing to hear any side to any story if it helps to understand things.

also, i have a question, and i'm asking in anger or however it's said.

if your god made all the poeple in world and stuff, and apparently homsexuality is wrong or whatever, then why is it like that? if the dude did make people, why make them able to love those of the same gender, only to have some religions (along with pricks in some countries) think it's wrong?

just wondering if anyone can give me a reasonable answer other than 'the devil did it' because (i'm not sure if this is even a valid source) i've seen supernatural and apparenlty the devil was an angel once and he served your god or whatever.

"just wondering if anyone can give me a reasonable answer other than 'the devil did it'" Oh yeah, of course! Christianity is not only about waving the bible in front of someone else's noses. Is a lot about rationallity and Filosophy (that's how you write it? I am spanish and english is quite hard to me).

Think it on the other hand. If God made people, why some of them are pedophillics? Why some of them kill for the plesaure of killing?
The answer is simple: he made us free. Free to do the right thing or the wrong thing.

God created us, and wanted us to live him. But he also wanted us to love him with freedom: he gives us the two alternatives: be with him or no being with him.

Why is that? Think of God of a father. Do you agree with me that a good father wouldn't force his children to love him?

So you hate gay people but you don't hate gay people... Nice, also homosexual people don't need help, they are perfect the way they are, I actually understand perfectly the point that you're trying to convey, but I'm just saying, I'm not looking for a fight

You: "I actually understand perfectly the point that you're trying to convey"
You: "So you hate gay people but you don't hate gay people..."

Err... nope? The whole point of my comment is to prove that one can dislike/hate an ideology, but not the people who has the ideology.

I mean, I am a christian and I have met some homosexual people. And these people were amazing people! And we were friends. But we thought differently. They didn't agree in my point of view as I didn't agree in theirs. But we never atacked one each other.

The perspective of "if you think different than me, you are my enemy" is quite inmature, right?

"Homosexuals are perfect the way they are". Why? Can you explain me why? Maybe you can shed a bit of light on this conversation.

(Also, excuse any grammar mistakes, as english is not my first language ;))
