Surfaces and Tomato.es

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 project as of a few days ago. Worked on it 2 hours yesterday, today for an hour and 15 mins. I'm betting slow but steady progress will lead me to the finish line - a skill that got me through in starting to place higher in my Melee tourneys as well as passing my NREMT exam. I want to apply the same discipline to game dev, and it seems to be paying off. 

Here's me playing melee! (no idea I was the only one on cam)


I'll use this opportunity to plug tomato.es again not because I work for them or anything but because it has been SO useful to me. 

I hope you all have success in your projects because I sincerely hope I do in mine. I know the struggle and we all need all the support we can get to finish these ancient ideas.

Also I am now engaged :)
