Oh good, you're still here

For those of you who are still curious about my last blog, the answer is ludamad. Ludamad was the person whose party I went to.

It was fun. It was almost all programmers there. I've never been in a room with strangers that loved programming. I drove some people home, returned some peoples' wallets, and just stayed up late around some drunk nerdy people. :P

Anyway! This won't be a life update blog. Maybe I'll write something later, but not here. I'm writing this blog because I want to make a browser based game in JS/HTML5.

I took a preliminary look around at existing engines, and was surprised there were so many. Have any of you looked into some of these free engines, and if so, are there any you recommend? What I want to make is a game that is controlled like a very simple RTS. You click a guy, and click somewhere else, and he moves there, or interacts with something. I want to make a world that scrolls around the canvas, and allows for objects to be clicked, and moved around.

I was going to build something from scratch, but when I saw there are actual engines out there, I got very very lazy, and decided I just want to practically make something in the HTML5 equivalent of GM.

I'm heading out the door to attend the birthday party of someone here on 64Digits.
Guess who that member is, and you get a free non-banning.
But guess wrong, and you will be banned.

I'm going to edit this later to maybe have a 64D meet-up picture.

Pew pew

It's been close to a year since I've blogged! Lots has been going on, and lots hasn't been. I've got a girlfriend now, and I've been spending a lot of time with her, and a lot of time airsofting.

First, check out this game by a fellow airsofter: Get it greenlit, and we can play it on a 64D gaming night. :D

Anyway, not much to say about what's been going on. Since March (or even before then, really), my life's activities have been revolving around my girlfriend. As the summer started to kick up, it's also begun revolving around playing airsoft games. I've started participating in MilSim events with a small group of other players. Not enough to form an 11 man squad (my favourite configuration at the moment), but we're getting there.

I now own something like 40 airsoft guns, and tons of gear.

Speaking of airsoft, I'm going to be heading down to Connecticut in October (Camp Bobriwka in Colebrook, Oct 3-5 to be exact), with some friends. If you happen to be in the area, or on my path down from Toronto (I'm driving), let me know!

This is mostly a post to get Noct Greenlight, because I really want to play it, as well as support a fellow indie developer that I know. Maybe I'll write some stuff about the larger airsoft games, for my own historic footprint, later. :)
