My posts have dwindled to nothing recently, it makes me sad. I’ve been busy with school as this semester has dumped a lot more work on my table than the previous. On a good note, I’ve FINALLY moved away from Game Maker. Don’t get me wrong, GM was a great learning tool and taught me the fundamentals of programming, but as I want to take making games seriously and eventually make it my careers, I’ve decided to move on.

At first, I dove into C++ as my programming classes at the university will be mainly C++ and I figured I’d get a head start. I worked through a couple tutorials but I found C++ to be quite overwhelming. I then checked out Java which I picked up fairly quickly and I was going to submit a text adventure game created in Java to the MiniLD last month but personal matters got in the way. Then I started looking into FlashPunk/FlashDevelop/AS3 and I think I’ve fallen in love. I’ve been playing with the Ogmo Editor which also makes things a lot easier. =] Plus by working with Flash, I can make my games available to anyone. Not to mention I can submit them to portals for moolah!

This also means I won’t be releasing my post-compo version of Voyage of Discovery. I thought it would be my last GM game but I’ve decided to leave it as the 48H LD entry it was meant to be.

I’d also like to point out how this blog has become a development blog rather than the ‘indie game awareness’ site I originally intended it to be. So if anyone’s reason for reading these posts were for the latter, check out the following: Frozen Synapse, Magicka, and Revenge of the Titans (Previously mentioned but there was a fat patch recently).

Revenge of the Titans

Do you like tower defense games? I do, in fact a lot of people do. But quite frankly there has been a flood of them on the market lately doing the same exact thing but with different themes. But there is one that is taking strides in becoming something different. Revenge of the Titans is a tower defense game with RPG/RTS elements which includes a unique tech tree.  But whats even better is there is also a story to go with it. Not to mention the stylish graphics are quite refreshing. Currently the game is still in open beta, so you can download it at Puppy Games website and also pre-order it at half price.
