Review: Methereum - blockchain games and drugs, what could go wrong???

21 May 2020 7 minute read comments X-51

It's been a while since I reviewed one of these games for everyone!! The last time I did, somehow the site managed to lose the entire post just minutes before I was ready to hit that "post" button, so I stayed away for a while. Given the days of work...

Game Dev Diary: Finding my concept

16 May 2020 3 minute read comments X-51

The idea that actually kicked off this journey proved to be far too ambitious, with potentially years of development to make it happen, but I'm not ready to sign up for that length of commitment, or go that long without something to show for my work....

My love/hate relationship with Google

7 May 2020 4 minute read comments X-51

For a long time I was one of those people who just said "screw it, Google know almost everything anyway, so why should I try to hide anything from them". But that was a different me. These days my thinking is a bit different, and I have slowly (ever...

Game Dev Diary: Tech Stack Follow-up

5 May 2020 6 minute read comments X-51

I've had a busy few days contemplating and evaluating each of the engines/libraries that I previously listed, and thought it would be good to follow up on what I liked or didn't like about each of them. So let's get straight into it....   Three.js As...

To the PublishOx devs: why does the new posts feed not show the posts in chronological order?

2 May 2020 1 minute read comments X-51

Game Dev Diary: Tech Stack Considerations

29 Apr 2020 4 minute read comments X-51

So now I come to what will probably be the hardest decision of this whole project: deciding what framework to use to implement everything!   Right now I am still undecided, and I am hoping in researching and writing this it will help me think through...

Game Dev Diary: Hunting For A Concept

28 Apr 2020 1 minute read comments X-51

This was not the post I intended to write today! What I wanted to post today was a mostly fleshed out concept that I had half written up yesterday, but I've changed my mind and decided to go in a different direction 😅   The concept I began writing up...

Game Dev Diary: The Beginning of All Things

27 Apr 2020 4 minute read comments X-51

So what does an out of work software dev/gamer/all-round creative type do when he is bored out of his brain and can't do much because of a heavily locked down city? He decides to create a game!   So I'm going to document the process, the designing, t...

Kontrust are an Austrian and Polish six piece group featuring both a male and female singer who have been around for almost 20 years. The band integrates some very disparate cultural and genre styles into a cool but odd metal/pop/folk crossover. The...
