Times, trials, and turbulence.
I can feel programmers around the globe cringing as I heartlessly invoke the clichè “Hello World” blog title. I am sorry, for what it’s worth. 🙂
This is my first entry into what will be henceforth known as my development journal, extending from the inflexible confines of my previous dev-journal on GameDev.Net. I only just recently purchased an account through DreamHost, and managed to neatly one-click-install this journal. So far I’ve been finding WordPress far more intuitive and dynamic than the text-editor-èsque system of GD.NET. Hopefully I’ll be able to spice up the CSS a little bit to break out beyond the journal template that I’ve chosen. I’ll need to get on creating my website first, however!
So if you aren’t from the GD.NET crowd and are a little curious about what lies beneath this internet-laden mask I wear, give the freshly-written About page a look-see, and read of my exploits. And please, share your own below in a comment. There’s nothing like a breezy “hello!” on one’s first journal entry.
This journal will be aimed at detailing the programming and game development related adventures in my life, as well as the primary development source for information about my current (ambitious!) project, Skirmish Online, an online team-oriented topdown action game. Feel free to ask about that, too. I’m very eager to get a community started for the game, despite how early the game is in terms of development. To whet your appetite, below is a screen-capture of the last iteration of Skirmish, which, although a noble attempt, suffered from design oopsies and insufficient code design.
The in-development Skirmish Online I refer to now will resemble the shown captures visually, and offer even deeper and more rewarding gameplay. I encourage you keep on reading subsequent posts to learn of my intentions for the game.
This being my first entry, I’ll cut it short and thank you again for reading. I hope that you continue to visit to hear about exciting updates to the development of Skirmish, and intentions of joining in on public testing once it commences.
