[Update: This post has been edited to include notes on changed aspects.]
It might not come as a surprise, that I’ve been very lazy when it comes to keeping up my blog/website. Last update came around November 3, 2016. The truth is, I’ve been busy with school, and just haven’t bothered with this blog much. But I think it’s time for a change.
So, what have I been up to? Well, long story short, I’ve gotten in a game development team (named Owl Valley Team) at our school, and we’re putting in the finishing touches to our first game made as a team. Sadly, before getting everything done, I had to leave and temporarily move back to my home for a summer job I’m currently working on.
The game is a mixture of a platformer with Angry Birds -style “flinging”, where you drag a line with your finger to jump with the character. And as you may have guessed, it’s a mobile game.
“Where can I get this game”, you might be asking. The thing is, I don’t know yet. Our team will release it as soon as it’s ready. And when it is ready, I will be making an another post with a link to it!
[Update: I’ve now posted a link to the game. You can find it in this article.]
So, there’s the reason why I’ve been busy. Games and school, mostly. Now would be a good time to discuss about my plans for this blog. So here’s a list:
- Make the blog look better
As it stands, the blog looked very outdated the day I’ve made it. It’s time to bring some change to that!
[Update: the blog now has a new look, thanks to the SimplyNews theme!]
- Interact more with the blog
This is kind of the point of having a blog. To spit out my thoughts, news and possibly worries.
[Update: This hasn’t really happened, although I might post an explanation on a later date.]
- Create a new home page
As you might’ve noticed, there’s a placeholder site where this blog was before. I think it would be neat to have a separate, simplified website to only show games I’ve been involved with, and make this blog more of a relaxed part of the site.
[Update: I’m still working on it, I’ve just been very lazy. Explanation might be coming at a later date.]
- Establish a forum alongside this blog
Now, here’s the most interesting part. I would like to create a forum, where you could log in with the same account you would be able to log in to the blog (to comment and stuff). A forum would allow me and everyone else to communicate with each other and create a community. But this is just something that I’m currently only thinking, but I cannot promise yet that I would be implementing it.
[Update: Still in my mind, I’ve just been focusing on other things.]
- Create game servers for several games
I would love to own a bunch of game servers! But they cost money. So this is just a thought for now. Also, I would need players for them, too, so I think game servers would come after the forum.
[Update: Same as above about the forum.]
So, that wraps up my thoughts and plans for this website. I don’t feel the need to list personal future plans for now, since I’ll mainly be focusing on school. And creating games. Lots and lots of games, hopefully.
If you’ve read my rambling this far, thank you! Even if you would be the only person reading through this, I will be happy. See you soon!
