Hibernation Over   Leave a comment

Well, I haven’t posted anything since October, and frankly I haven’t done much since October save for a bit of job searching that didn’t go anywhere. I think part of the problem is my lack of a portfolio. I haven’t finished my SimpleBlog or even worked on it in months, but I still have my […]

SimpleBlog Work Post   Leave a comment

Last time, I put together the basic HTML of the simple blog. Today I’m going to work out the interchanges. When a user first comes to the simpleblog index page, they’ll be presented with a list of the ten most recent entries, a login form, and buttons to display the next ten or previous ten […]

Current Progress   Leave a comment

I sure don’t update this blog very much. I had originally intended to use it as a place to host the play-by-plays of my coding trials and triumphs, which I regularly do over on my personal blog.

The Continuing Experiment   2 comments

Formatting the Text Layout   Leave a comment

Alright, so the idea is to make a text-based world. What is that? What does it require? I suppose first I need to decide what it’ll look like. One option would be to make it like this… You are within a deep forest. There are thick walls of trees to the east and west. There […]

TextWorld Project   Leave a comment

The TextWorld project is going to host my experiments with text based worlds. Text based games have fallen out of favor and into a niche, and I’m all about niches. Most text based games took the form of interactive fiction, where a story unfolded as a player solved puzzles. I might try that eventually, but […]

Tile Matching Game   Leave a comment

For the last two years I’ve been working on a simple Tile Matching Game in Flash and ActionScript 3. At present the game is functionally complete, and I am only waiting for the comissioned art and sound resources to be completed so that I can integrate them into the finished product.
