Ludum Dare: Post 1

Friday, December 17th, 2010

Started work on Stuff Hunters.  I will try to make a build every hour or so I’m working on it.  I suspect I have bitten off more than I can chew.

Build 1 – if you can call it that.

Unity Test

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

Man I have not posted in a while.  Lot has happened (like working on Left4Dead and COD: Black Ops).

I’m playing with unity today with the thought of trying the Ludum Dare. Maybe.  Howard got me all excited about this at lunch, and of course Anthony showed me the contest long ago. However my follow through with personal projects is a little abysmal.

This is just a test post to see how easy/ hard it is to link to a unity app.

The Test Game App.

Hey at least you can walk around….

I did a bad, bad thing.

Damn you Anthony, seeing you get one made me do it.  That and COD4.

Does Samus Live on Norion?

Saturday, November 10th, 2007

My 4 year old son just ask me in his most serious voice, “Does Samus live on Norion?”  I was not sure whether to laugh or tell him she just visits Norion.

He asked much like I would have asked does Micky Mouse live in the Magic Kingdom when I was his age.  Mario and Link are his Saturday morning cartoons.  He wanted to be Luigi for Halloween.  He might watch one TV show every month or so.  He would rather play Nintendo or play games on the computer.

Someone had better make a theme park based on games for his generation…

The scariest part is how much he is learning while playing these games.  Because many of them require the ability to read, he can now read.  I don’t mean a couple words, I mean words he has never seen before and figure out what they mean kind of reading. 

The other strange thing that has happened is in reguard to some of the characters that you of I would call “TV characters”.  He has never seen them on TV.  He is probably more familiar with the versions in flash based web games on sites like www.nickjr.com than he is with the TV version.  To him the TV show is almost an ad for the web site, not the other way around.

Anyway he is asking to play on the web right now so I’d better get going…
