Okay, well first of all I'm helping out with the (very unstable) GMCG, which is starting up again on the GMC courtesy of Varuks. Personally, I'm hoping that there won't be as many people hopping on the bandwagon this time around. Less people = Easier to organize. They seem to be planning on making a quick Shmup game as a warmup to making a real platform adventure. I do not agree with this. I think they should put all their efforts into one project. Not multiple ones.Check out the topic here.
Haha, well the GMCG was a failure on the GMC...
In other news an RDC is being held on April 7, in 8 days! So check this place out for more info.
Charmeleon, a GMC Member has recently popped up and is reviewing games posted on the GMC on his blog. Charmeleon's Awesume Reviews. His honesty and unbiased opinions are refreshing(to me, at least). So by all means, subscribe if you like to find out about good/bad games... or even to learn about bad game design choices in general.
Does anyone remember when I started that Iji Fangame Sequel thing and it failed utterly? Man, I thought that would be the death of me. There was way too much ambition in the idea. I'm thinking of starting over on a little Iji-fangame project, without getting a bunch of teammates who try to force me to work. Being Indie. Being your own boss. That's the way to go.
Of course, I would not even begin to work on an Iji fangame now. I've got too many projects already. Of course, the only one I really would need to finish before starting work on another game is Maximus Cerebrum. Gotta get that new computer!
I was looking at YellowAfterLife's new blog and found a post with a review of a game, Deharmonized.
The screenshots looked nice, the review was pleasing. So I decided to play the game myself.
It is a very abstract one-button game, about as simplistic as it gets. After playing through the game and finding it a pleasant experience I decided to review it on the YYG page here. I recommend anyone who has 10 minutes to kill to try it out.
Work on Maximus Cerebrum has come to a halt, I have, by no means abandoned it, I'm just not in the mood for working on it right now... my lack of motivation is caused by having such a trashy computer. Every time I run an .exe or play a flash game, my computer fans scream rather loud and annoyingly(sometimes they do that anyway, though). This causes me to have an aversion to working on my games. I'm definitely getting a new computer sometime soon. Maybe sometime after YellowAfterLife finishes porting Rocket Leaper to flash ;) Hopefully we can get a sponsor who will pay us for the game.
