So, this is how it starts… again… first of all welcome to Deranged Society – a “blog” created by four more or less normal guys who decided to start an online project together but were quite busy doing other things.
If you ever wonder how this website started, here is your glimpse behind the curtains. You might not expect it but originally Deranged Society wasn’t expected to be the website it is today, and on it’s way to it’s current version a lot of content has been written and ultimately been deleted again… We just couldn’t find the right way to do things for quite some time, and some of us were just busy with other things in their life at the time.
But let’s go back a bit.
once upon a time…
… in 2015 to be more precise, there where three little pigs and a big bad Wolf. Just kidding, but to be honest (even though I’m sure the others are going to kick my ass for this sentence) sometimes it’s not so far off. Anyway… back to topic… so it all started in early 2015 when I got back from South East Asia to take a “short term” contract with one of my clients in Germany. What originally was only supposed to take four to six weeks somehow became an endless project with an ongoing contract, so I had to find a more permanent residence since living in Hotels and Hostels isn’t really great on the long run. I got lucky and found myself a nice shared apartment with Hanshiro, since F3arAndT3rr0r needed someone to take his place here, while he was gone for six months.
It was quite nice but at the end he came back and I had to move back into a hotel again. We kept in touch and hoped that their current flat mate would move out so I could move back in again. During that time Hanshiro met UndyingLegacyX during a boosting session on TrueAchievements and since he was living not even two hours away from us at the time we decided to visit him. Long story short, we all became quite close friends and in March 2013 I got lucky and was able to move back in with Hanshiro and F3arAndT3rr0r. Shortly after we came up with the original idea for Deranged Society and planed to stream together on TwitchTV or at least do something online together. Unfortunately even though we found the proper name for our website we were all just to busy with our other obligations… In addition UndyingLegacyX had some personal issues that lead to him moving back to the US and almost put a stop to whole Deranged Society project.
and if they haven’t died,…
…they are still living today. However I didn’t want to give up on the idea just yet, so I kept trying to find a way… and I believe I finally did. Instead of streaming online or writing boring game reviews like so many other websites out there already do, we are going to mix up boring reviews with stories from our daily lives. Instead of spamming your inbox with hundreds of posts per month we are going to sum everything up. In the end each of us is going to write between one and four posts per month, summing up the new hardware we got and games we played. Therefore ensuring you’ll always have enough time to catch up with our latest posts and on the other hand ensuring that we are able to keep our promise even though we are quite busy with our other obligations.
I know it’s going to take some time to add enough content here, and fill up the spaces but I’m convinced that in the end we are going to deliver you a unique experience and not just for you to read, but for you to participate in, starting with your first comments below. Let us know what you expect from us, what are you missing in other websites out there and what do you think other sites are doing great?
