I guess I’m officially starting up a blog/website. Been meaning to do this for a while (damn you, ADHD), but glad to finally get something out there. The brain-barrier to doing something like this gets a lot smaller once all the initial steps are out of the way. I’m using jekyll for this thing, which seems pretty dope. I’m a simple man, I don’t need a huge complicated behemoth of a website. Mostly just want a place I can journal up my thoughts and share my progress in a way that’s a bit more coherent than a twitter thread.
With that said, I guess I’ll give a quick rundown of what I’ve been working on lately.
As always, I’m working on my game engine Macabre2D. I cleaned up a lot of the UI code recently and my next step is to get some basic tile map editing working. I might put out a beta release once tile maps are in. Technically, you can make a game in Macabre2D right now. There’d be a lot of manual work, but you could do it.
I’ve also been writing music for Comet Overdrive. I have three tracks that I’m really into and a few fringe tracks that may or may not make the cut when all is said and done. Putting out a debut album is a little stressful (even though I know there’s no audience to judge me yet). It sets the tone for everything. I very explicitly started up a new project with a new name so that I could think very hard about the sound I want to put out there.
