Luc Bernard: “I won’t be continuing in videogames” [update]

Update: Luc’s just updated the post to say the following:

I wrote something here and then realised everyone has posted a news about it, and right now I am slapping my head, wondering like what the fuck have I done again, so basically if you’re here you already know what I wrote 😀 fucking shit

And yes I AM STILL SUPPORTING EC PC AND I WILL BE DOING THAT FOR A LONNGGGG TIME, AND EC WIIWARE IS STILL COMING OUT

Just no more future games that’s all.

Phew god, what have I done or said again, I am quite embarrassed right now, especially i never knew big sites would report this

Luc Bernard, creator of PC and WiiWare title Eterny’s Child, has announced on his blog that he will no longer be “continuing in videogames.”

“This is basically a blog post to announce that I won’t be continuing in videogames,” he wrote.

“I’m going to finish off Eternity’s Child chapter 2 and 3 and the Wiiware one (which should probably come end end 2008).”

The developer blames the (bad) press for making him ill and becoming an alcoholic.

“There is probably several reasons for me leaving this industry,” he added. “The press can really destroy you morally, too much stress (kind of made me ill and become an alcoholic).”
