Games, Fiverr and Comments

Summer is almost here!

Well, after about 28 weeks, my first year of college is about to come to an end. The only thing is my way is the three finals that I have to take. In the same day. Fun.

In other news, I made a Fiverr. Not because I'm really desperate for money or anything, but because now that I'm mostly done with this site, I'm gonna need something to work on, and I might as well get more experience making websites. If you want to see the fiverr page, you can click here to be taken to it.

Speaking of this website, I'm working on the comment system right now (well not right now, I'm taking a break to type this out). Work on that is going as smoothly as it can, the only real speed bumps showing up in how to prevent spam.

Because I'm terrible at ordering things, I should probably talk about the game already. I recently got my hands on a copy of the Kenney Donation Pack, which is basically a .zip file filled with a variety of soulless vector-esque game assets. These assets cover about every form of 2-D game imaginable, ranging from vertical scrolling space ship shooters to hex-based strategy games. Up until this point, all of my game literally used squares as placeholder graphics. Now you might be saying "Oh, that's not a big deal, you're a programmer, not an artist", although I agree with that statement, I have to test these games a lot. And I mean a lot! and the process would probably be a little less mentally taxing if I took the risk of my eyes bleeding out of the equation. Needless to say, I'm looking forward to that. Whatever I make, there is a very strong chance it will be tile based, so I'll keep you up to date with that.

Well I clearly have a very busy few weeks ahead, so until then.
