Gamedev Update

(Copying the gif from Discord, let's hope it won't disappear)

Written in C# and Monogame. I wanted to try some OO programming again. I already did a game in Java and Xml parsing on C++ made me cancel that project (yes, I had been writing a small 2D OpenGL engine in C++).

Monogame is mostly good, it just took +1,500 lines of code to make it "bend to my will". I wro... Continue reading.

Strike&Oppose is a retrofied creation of a 
PUSH game idea that came across me early in
2018. It's made to be simple in concept. PUSH
back the enemy tank and make it to the finish line
first or destroy the enemy tank
I've disabled the comment(s) and ratings due to 
it being a fixed project in completion. The extended 
documentation and other specifics about this game
are on the game page.  It's very straightforward
and... Continue reading.

Surfaces and

The year is 2018. I have just learned how to use surfaces on GMS today. I feel special since I've always refused (being a kid that mostly revolved around GM 5.3, and did not have access to surfaces), yet my needs called for learning. I'm excited because there does seem to be a bunch of possibilities with this function. Nothing too related to my game however haha.

I wish I could provide screenshots, but nothing yet. Progress has been slow for the past few days and I have just picked up this... Continue reading.

hey guys i passed herpa-derp

I passed my national registry to be an EMT-B. I am now a glorified ambulance driver, whoo!

I'm really just logging in to say this to the 3 people that still visit this site. Shoutouts!

ps. this means Cursed Black is back online. It's been 8 years of development, why not go for 9?

"Look mother, I'm running I'm running!"

When you cannot draw a car you can always draw a running figure. Now I cannot call it a racing game, though.

It is being made in Javascript & Html5. Yeah, that's "pseudo-3D" you see. No WebGL this time.

I could write a longer blog but no one bothers reading it anyway.

Cursed Images

Been studying for the last month for my EMT exam. one month left. then i can fuck off practice Melee/work on my game as much as I want to. 

btw use if you're having trouble concentrating with studying, like me. And read about the Pomodoro technique on wikipedia before trying it out -- it's done wonders for my undisciplined mind, and I intend to use it for game development as well when I'm done.

On programming or "why did I write a game in Java and what next"

(Finding a good title for a blog is surprisingly hard)

I finished The Oyster Mirror, that puzzle game of mine, yesterday. You can play it on ( The source code is available on Github ( The source code is actually more relevant in the point of view of this blog.

Here I would like to share something about the project if we consider it as a programming project and ignore th... Continue reading.

Moving Soon - Open For Commission

Hey guys!

I'll start this with some life updates:

-Loving life partner
-Big group of friends

It ain't so bad

It's just really freakin hot here in Texas.

My job isn't exciting, but it pays well and I'm getting good experience. Some of my coworkers make me look so damn good.

I still get to program projects in my free time. I'm learning the Unreal Engine!

No one can stop me from eating an entire pizza. No one.

I'm joining meet up groups to make friends in my area. Networking yo.

This shit is way better than high school.

I jus...
