Hello together, i’m still here and alive. Can’t believe it’s been 7 months since I last posted here. Shame on me!
But my plan was to finish a cosplay for this years Gamescom and to participate in Blizzards Costume Contest. I failed. Due to some lazy months and less experience in building props. I had to decide, do I rush the costume and have a not so good looking costume or do I cancel it for this years Gamescom. I decided to cancel it. For now it stays in the basement. And in spring next year, I will work on it again. In the meantime I will do some smaller projects. Got a small costume for Gamescome in the works, together with my girlfriend. Will post some photos here when we finish it.
Now some coding & gamedev related stuff, because that is why you’re reading this thing, right?
A few weeks ago I started to learn Python, over at teamtreehouse.com (Use my ref link to try it <3 ). It’s kind of premium, because you pay for it. But the courses are quite good. Lots of videos, mixed with quizes, coding challenges and so on. I use treehouse because they got a Python 3.1 course. I used codecademy before, but they only got a Python 2 course.
So, why I want to learn Python? My list for ideas (apps and games) is growing fast and I’m not able to build something good myself, but I want to! And it’s quite useful for my work as a Systemadministrator.
Beside that my actual game project came up short. I’m working on a Tower Defense game. Because I love tower defense games, since the Warcraft 3 era and always wanted to build one by myself. With the help of two great tutorials, I was able to build a decent wave system and a building mechanic, I even have a theme for that game and have pixeled some sprites, too I still have some problems and I got lots of stuff on my list, but the „prototype“ is working.
See you. If you want to read a little bit more updated, follow me on twitter
