It’s been a while, and a lot has happened since we last talked. Today I’m renewing a focus on building games. I’ve been wanting to be two things in life, an author and a game developer. Today I make a step towards the game developer side of things and see how it goes. I got a copy of gamemaker – through steam – and worked through the first tutorial. It’s all very familiar as gamemaker is one of the few tools I spent a lot of time with. Now that I’ve chosen the tool – warts and all – I’m going to restart the 1 Game A Month site I started, and stick to at least one game per month. Let’s get going!
I’m posting again in less than 24hrs. The curse has been broken. Now I can post as often or as little as I want. The question will be “will anyone read this?”
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted much here. It seems like time passes so quickly between posts. Will I post again next week or next month? Perhaps it’s time to get more consistent and post things folks might like to read…
A while back (just about a year ago, it seems) I had a One Game A Month GitHub page. I’ll be reviving that and posting about it here.
Here’s the page: http://triptych.github.io/onegameamonth/
Thinking that doing is better than just talking, so I believe I’ll try my hand at the OneGameAMonth thing:
http://www.onegameamonth.com/ Hopefully that can help drive the impetus to get a “real” game done by the end of the year.
