I've been getting a lot of messages on various social media all asking the same thing: "Amy has been gone for a while now, is she ok?"


In long: She is busy with her second year of college, as I am and many of us in our social group are. This can really sap your motivation for other activities, so I don't blame her for taking a break! Amy also took Summer classes and holds a job all the while, so she gets about 1 day a week off, which is probably spent on personal things and/or homework. Again, not much time for arts. Also, if you're still worried for her mother's health, be calm my friend. Her breast cancer was diagnosed very early and she has since recovered nicely. I am not in direct contact with Amy on a day-to-day basis anymore (separate universities and all that) so I can't say much else!

If you're wondering about the fate of Star Days, I was told by Amy last time I saw her that she has not been working on it. This may have changed, and this also does not mean it will never be done. Just don't expect that if/when Amy comes back from hiatus that it will be done then, if at all. People are getting quite impatient with waiting for it, but remember that Pacthesis is a one person operation and it will stay that way. The fact that sometimes games were put up multiple times a year in the past with other art submitted in between is no short of incredible. Like I said above though, due to less time and multiple life changes, that kind of output is just not possible anymore.

Just think of it all like this: ever since Amy started posting things on dA, she never really stopped or took a break ...until now, of course. So really, this hiatus is made up of all the time she never got to take off. That's how I see it, anyway.

I don't know what Amy is planning for the future, but this is just a message for all the people who have been asking. This is what I know. If you see someone asking about whats happening with Pacthesis or Star Days, feel free to link them here. I hope you all understand.

Stay fluffy,

How is she? Will she ever come back?
Dibsgirlfriend Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And what about now? Is she still okay?
AnimeWolf1234 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2014
How's she been doing? I know it's a bit selfish to ask her to come back, but I want to know if she's at least live and well. She deserves a happy life and I wanna make sure one of the people I admire has obtained that.

Yes! I was starting to worry about her myself!

I'm so happy! I've actually been really worried for her and her mom. My mom had breast cancer when I was younger and unfortunately.... I'm so glad her mom is ok! Wish her luck from all us fans, ok? Tell her we support her and we hope she will come back eventually! If not, I hope her life is full of bliss!
slimjim123 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2013
Thank you so much for posting this! As much as I love her work, it was her that I was worried about so this was so awesome to read. I'm so happy that her mom is doing well and that she's taking a break. :) Thanks for posting and I'll be sending her positive vibes.

teddybearanime Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013

Like a lot of people said, we'll be waiting. Take as much time as you need, and of course, want! I don't think Pacthesis should have to rush herself. There's a mighty bunch of things that she's dealing with, right? Having a family member in the hospital is hard, my granddad- who I'm very close to- was put in the hospital during my seventh grade year, that was hard. Very hard. So anyone who's had that type of experience should understand, right? True fans should still be patient and supporting through these times for Pacthesis.


;u; I bet that was too sappy.

I think Amy's true fans should understand. And like you said, she's never really taken a break before, so this makes up for it.
streampaw276 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2013
I'm glad her mother is recovering*Phew*
Striped-Jacket-Girl Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Phew... My chest feels a little lighter now that I know she and her mom are alright. I understand her situation, after all, you need to set your priorities straight and school is way more valuable than making sim dates (no offence). I personally don't care when Star Days is released, I'm just glad knowing she's doing her best to make it happen...
Stargazin1 Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013
ya gotta do, what ya gotta do. Glad to hear everything think is going ok. Happy years to you and Amy!!!!

Are my answers funny or because I stalk Amy.......... O^O
Neo97x Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2013
Mmm... neither.

The answers are correct. Star Days will be completed someday (insider information), but it's uncertain when she'll get the motivation to continue making it. Or I could complete it for her :P 
izzartsy Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
