Games and Development

8a500bfef7a18b89fc3a68b5409a6ab0A couple of things happened this past weekend and they were all good. I had family visiting and they took up all of my time. It was nice to take a break from work and everything else. I got to show them around the city and enjoy the zoo.

There are two huge pieces of news that I want to share or maybe three. Well, they aren’t huge per say but I still consider them big news.

First, my review on Crickle has been posted. You can find it here. Basically, it’s like Scrabble but on mobile and you can play it by yourself.

Second, I have joined up with a group of developers and programmers, artists, composers, etc. (all minor league here) to develop a game. I’m helping out with world building, setting, characters, dialogue, etc. You know, plot and the other fun stuff. We had a meeting this Saturday that never really ended. The planning is still going on.

I do have to say that it’s exciting that I get to work with so many other people. While I’m the ‘writer’, it’s nice hearing feedback and other ideas from everyone else. It’s been a while since I have worked in a group. For now, we’re just naming the setting and a few other things. I realize that writing for a game is way different than writing a story but despite that, I’m looking forward to the experience.

Lastly, I will say that I have finally built my desktop. Over the course of like six months, I have bought every part to build it and today I was able to pick up from the store. Now, I have a faster option to surf the web. Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful for my laptop but I needed an upgrade and my desktop gave me that. Well, I’m still keeping my laptop but it’s nice to have another option.
