For the non-programmers, a “blocker bug” is one of the banes of our existence. It’s a bug that stops the application altogether and leaves the user stuck. I currently have just one blocker bug in the game that pops up infrequently, which I intended to squash this weekend after returning from GDC.
Unfortunately, I’m laid up in bed with a severe cold instead of coding. Usually I can get away with working off my laptop as it rests on my chest, but all the reading is just aggravating the headache. Joy.
So I guess for now I have two blocker bugs: one software-based, one human-based.
