Hey, while you are here, check out my current beat: /393288

Over the past years I had a lot of ideas for Flash games and movies. But while studying CS in college I figured out that I am more of a programmer than an artist. That's why I seem to have more patience for programming.

Right now I work on the basics for a sandbox-style game. I began to implement it in Java, but then I came across FlashDevelop and the FlashPunk engine. So I now work with AS3, which is not really hard, when you know other high-level languages.

As I just mentioned, I want to create a sandbox game. I won't tell you the details about gameplay and genre, yet, but visually I aim for a look as in Final Fantasy: Tactics Advance 2 (see picture below, isometric 2,5D perspective). I haven't played it so far, but I can tell from the various sprites, that the player goes from one "stage" to another. This is something that I don't want.
I want an open world (randomly generated) without any limits (think of Dwarf Fortress with Stonesense). But I won't go for the DF gameplay, you'll see later.

At the moment I am working on the datastructures for my map and game world. Thanks to Flash and FlashPunk, I don't have to worry about things like FPS (one of the reasons, why I gave up on Java). Also, I don't have any sprites or tiles to work with, so I just took some isometric gras tiles from Google, that should work for now. As soon as I'll have a stable tech demo, I will look for artist here on NG, who'll provide me with good tiles.

That's it for now. By the way, I have a new notebook, so you will see more beats and more info on my game soon.

Ok, so as I said in my new-year's post, I have several ideas for great Flash movies, but unfortunately
1) college consumes too much time right now and
2) my laptop was broken for a long time

Since the next 5 months at college will be time consuming, too, I won't touch my graphic pad now and focus on making music until i finally find some time to start a Flash project.......
Until then I hope some of you enjoy my music ;)

Oh and by the way, what also consumed A WHOLE BUNCH OF MOTHERF*****G TIME was WoW and several other MMORPGs......but since I was at Celebrety Rehab I think now that I can live on without these poisonous drugs....


Alright, I'm visiting for about 6 years now.
But since I had to learn Flash at my college (I'm studying Computer Science) I now know how to make a flashmovie that doesn't look like a painting done by a lunatic with a bunch of his own shit...

I made a few attempts in the past, but as I said, I didn't know how to use Flash (I'm not saying I do know it properly now, but I dig it nowadays^^). Another good thing is that I also learned to use FruityLoops, so that I can make my own beats/soundtrack for my movie.

The only problem I have is that I have so many ideas, but I can't make a good connection between each of them......anyway, I'm going to start a flashmovie right now and I wanted you to know.

I wish you a fucking awesome 2008!
