A Different Kind of Screenshot Saturday

This was my #screenshotsaturday today teaching a class of 8-11 year olds how to make video games at www.younggamemakers.com who spearheaded the event working with Games Forum Boston. The kids did a great job following along and it was great to see the light up when their game went from them making a few simple […]

Road Defender has been continuing to improve with refining the AI system. Its amazing how tedious it can get creating groups of enemies to decide which targets to focus on and not get in each others way. Also getting the wireframe “augmented reality” HUD stuff was improved as well this week showing the core idea […]

My voice is pretty much back now after an eventful Boston FIG event.  Over the course of eight hours we spoke to easily 300 people between DJ and myself and a ton of email addressed to let people know more about the upcoming kickstarter. I got to get decked out in my mad max gear […]

Maintaining Things On The Road To Boston FIG

Skipping Last Week’s Post I ended up skipping last weeks post  because I’d had so many smaller posts about Road Defender going on.  None of them quite felt big enough to merit them being a stand alone blog post the various blog places I normally post too.  After two weeks of work it felt like […]

Road Defender Demo Begins And Everything Is Awesome

Things Are Coming Together So it’s been a fantastic week since the last post.  I don’t know if you’ve ever seen or read “The Secret” but I’m telling you this has been an incredibly “law of attraction”-ish period of time.  We have been very fortunate in the last couple of weeks to find the right […]

Building a Kickstarter Video and Demo with no money and great friends!

The Road Defender is coming to Kickstarter!

An Idea From The Past So there has been this game that we’ve wanted to make since probably 2006 when the concept was first developed by my friend Doug and myself.  He was in town visiting and we were up late drinking beer and smoking too many cigarettes…  It was inspired by the chase scene at […]

Haxorz and Ads and more, Oh My!

Our site got hacked (it’s ok now) I just went on vacation and noticed the other night that this site had been hacked!  All of the pages were affected.  It was concerning and of course an unpleasant experience to feel so vulnerable and exposed.  To the hackers credit, they didn’t do anything seriously destructive.  I […]
