"Goodbye 2022!"

WOAH slow down there 2022! Ohp - it's gone lol

Welp here we are again! Welcome to my yearly recap post, where I summarize everything I did during the year.

In comparison to 2021, this past year was more quiet for 'Zanzlanz.' I spent most of my free time on a couple very long term projects - namely a large Mine Blocks update, and contract work for my old employer. Also, last year's Projects video took a third of the year to make though lol! 2023 shall be a different story...

Also new to this year's post is that I'll include some IRL stuff I did! Starting in March, I started reaching out to friends and arranging events to do each week. This made 2023 socially fulfilling, which is unusual coming from a guy who basically lives and breathes game development lol

Alrighty, be sure to explore the images and links below to look back at what I did this year!

If you're following along, you'll be seeing more from me in 2023 than you did this year - and I'll share those plans with you in my yearly Projects video, coming in hopefully February! :D

I hope you all had a good 2022, and I wish you all the best in 2023!
In the comments on this post, let me know what your 2022 was like, and if you're thinking 2023 will be different or the same for you :)

Happy 2023!
