So, 2015 has come to an end and 2016 is about to begin. Looks like it’s time to tackle my new year’s resolutions. Now in order to prepare for a 10k I will need a new pair of running shoes and… oh wait… this is the games blog. Well let’s move on to the next resolution then.
As far as I remember, writing video games has always been a hobby though most of these games don’t really go beyond the stage of proof of concept before being tossed away because I feel like I have a better game idea. So my resolution is: Write my next games from A to Z. Or at least somewhere near Z. Let’s say a little bit further than B would be great for a start. Anyway, I thought that keeping a public journal of my experiments might help.
Now a blog about works in progress obviously need at least one work in progress. So let’s cast a spell and bring back to life one of these long time gone proofs of concepts:
Buccaneers Of The Booty is a local multiplayer NES-ish retro joypads naval battles game that I’ve started years ago. This project is a complete reboot of the original for I won’t go so far into the dark arcanes as to raise the source code back from the graveyard of superseded technologies in which it was written.
