Can do better

It’s a common thing but I have read something today that has left me disappointed. Something with so much potential just ended like that, as if the writer got bored with the whole thing and just ended.

Which is blegh!

So I’m considering something impossible creating something new! Early days so don’t get any hopes up just yet.

Still got it?

I’ve been busy doing other things and generally keeping busy but occasionally I think about this blog and I think “Am I still relvant?”

I mean Twine is king and RAGS is on the decline, and Twine isn’t my style, and I’ve not really done anything for I don’t know a year?

But then when I look I’m still getting 50-60 links a day and even if most of them are peek and run that can’t be a bad thing right?

As usual no promises but I might start thinking about getting a few idea’s started, though nothing to complex to start, in the next couple of months.

Twine has come?

I know one extreme or the other, what can I say I’m on a roll :).

Looking at the stuff coming out of TFGames it seems that the tide had turned and the more graphic intensive RAGS has given way to Twine. And in some way’s I can’t blame people to do a good RAGS game take a lot of effort to do well, whilst writing a CYOA is a lot easier and takes less effort outside the writing. They also share a lot of the same problems with every other games in that it still takes a lot of time and effort to do a good game.

Personally I like the slightly more complex style RAGS offers but I’m not oppossed to Twinw, in fact I might try to create one of my own some day.

So what do people think? What do people like or dislike about the various systems. And oh I’ve created a poll so people can pick there favorites.

Random!

The Internet is full of distractions.

Oh an yeah hi I’m still here :).

There are many, many thing I would like to do and creating games is still one of them so I’m going to try and restructure things my end to try and give me the time to properly work one my little projects.

Though I struggle against the feeling that the style of game I write are currently out of vogue, ironical html games are on the rise with apparently far less picture (which does make things difficult sometimes). Not that it’s going to stop me writing the damn things, it’s my rebellious streak :).

Change of Investigator

Look cross post’s :). I won’t go over my initial pitch I put up on TF Games I figure most people here check out both here and there. If you missed it the basic idea is laid out here.

What I thinking is to reuse some images I created from another idea that never got off the ground so I thought that this might be our poor investigator final form.

Feel free to offer suggestions either here or TF Games.

I is two

Another year of me making vague promises and putting out a half finished games. So business as usual :).

So can I promise anything new, or anything finished. No.

Will I try to actually finish anything? Maybe

I’m afraid that’s the best I can promise, but at least it honest. Right?

One thing I can tell you is that I’m not planning on working on UTBG any more. To much time has passed and the code, as pitiful as it is, is to much for me to spend any time rebuilding it.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that I’m planning to do some work on UTBG.

Admit it your confused :D.

The game in it’s current form is no more, but I’m going to take the basic plot and ideas to create a new version of UTBG. So whilst the same character and events will happen they won’t necessary be in the exact same form or order. I’m planing to structure it around a police investigation, with the player taking the place of the female cop investigating these strange claims. I’m still not sure if that character will be Rosa, or a similar character with a different name.

I’ve also got a secret, secret project that I’m going to take apart and put together in a slightly different form.

Like I said above no promises but you might even see something on one or more of them in the next couple of months.
