Hate to say it, but I've got to start shutting down my little demo now. I got a lot done, and I've super impressed with how far I was able to go in such a short amount of time. I got a basic concept of my witch drawn and modeled, but I never made it to any sort of game-ready state. I did compile a new version of the engine with cell-shading, which was awesome for a guy like me. (Thanks Garage Games resources!)
Moving on... next week we have... Mike!
Mike will be hanging out all next week, and we'll be knee deep in Summer Tech prep-work the entire time. We have all kinds of goodies planned, I only hope we can deliver on half of them!Nintendo DS Lite!
Today was the big day, and I got one for me and my roommate (his birthday is coming up while I'm away, so he got his gift a bit early!) We spent roughly an hour sending immature picto-chats back and forth, followed by hijacking the neighbor
s open wifi connection to battle it out with Lost Magic online. We also engaged in a few rounds of Metriod Prime Hunters, where I got cut down like wool off sheep. I purchased Brain Age to build up on that lacking mathematics of mine, and I must say if I can keep at it, I think it will really help a lot. I can nail the hell out of those color name games though. Red is Blue! RED IS BLUE!
I'm on the lookout for elctroplankton, but as it wasn't a big hit, and came out a while ago, so I'm having a big of trouble tracking down a copy locally. I'll be trying the Town East mall in the morning. I know it's not really a game so much as an “experience” but I do most of my hand-held games in very short burst anyway. (On the john!)
Summer Tech is just two short weeks away, and the giddy levels are rising fast. With the Mavs kicking the living shit out of Shaq and his Miami goons, I think everything is going just about perfect.
