Late Night Game Making with Construct 2

Last night I played around with Construct 2 and made a game. It’s a sucky game, but the fact that I could create it in about an hour is fantastic. Today is your last day to get Construct 2 at a cheaper price. Tomorrow they release r100 and with it comes great new features, but also a bit more expensive. I still think it’s totally worth it. It’s the first tool I’ve used that I actually “get” and imagine making real games with.
Seem my silly final product below. Arrow keys move. Click to shoot. Click once in the frame so you don’t scroll around.

Playing with Construct 2

I’m playing around a bit with Construct 2. It’s a pretty nifty web game building tool. I just wish it had a Mac version. Try moving around with the arrow keys. Not much happens, but there’s so much potential here.

More code less load.

I’ve been reading more and more about how less folks are blogging, and how more important it is to maintain a blog if you want to cultivate a community of followers/fans. So, let’s see if I can up the rate of posts as well as have more code to show you.

I am also tweaking the look and feel so there’s less distractions and such. Hopefully things’ll load faster.

New YUI Communication Layer Demo Code

Most recently I’ve been going over Gallery components. They are so awesome that I’ve decided to try to beef up the examples by creating ones that are a bit more verbose and are updatable by myself and others. In that spirit here’s my first one with Communication Layer.

It’s not perfect, but it shows off a bit of what you can do with it. I hope to add more and more of these as I dig through the Gallery.

I’ve also included it via an embed below:

Playful Buttons featured on cssdeck.com

I have realized that I output a lot of code and other demo type things but I fail to mention them on my own blog! Kinda wonky, so here’s a recent snippet. I took a few of my css3 snippets and posted them on CSSDECK, and one got featured. I created a few more (basically ported the article to CSSDECK’s format)

I hope you try them out and let me know what you think of them.
