Health Update : August 2014

Last week saw the two year anniversary of this post, where I waffled and rambled on about my health condition. Mum suggested it was about time to write an update, so this is that!

Two years on, and although I’m marginally better, I’m still somewhat stuck in a fairly similar position.

This Week…

I’m not 100% sure how this game’s going to turn out, as it’s currently still in the early days of development, but I spent so much time, yesterday, getting the Ball-Thwack physics to work well enough… It’d be a shame to give up, now!

So, I Upgraded the Server…

You might’ve noticed odd outages and curious tweaks and changes over the course of the last week..
Last Wednesday I decided it was finally time to upgrade the server, and the switch went “mostly” smoothly. There were quirks along the way, and the WordPress didn’t enjoy the shift at all.
I’ve spent days trying to reconstruct the AGameAWeek blog using various bits and pieces, from raw database sql, to having to redraw bits and pieces..
As well as all of that hassle, I’ve had to completely move everything from one server to another.
It’s been a “bit” of a hassle, if I’m honest.

.. Although, my self-coded Jayenkai Archive made the move without so much as a single complaint, which is nice.

This took up most of my coding schedule between Wednesday and Friday.
As a result, I had to rumble together a super-quick game, and so over the course of just Saturday and Sunday (2 days!) I fumbled about making a Tower Defence engine, before reversing the player roles, and finally drawing some nice graphics.
To say that the game turned out nice, is a bit of an understatement.

The game is currently sitting pretty on GameJolt’s frontpage, and has had an alarming nummber of plays. It currently has a rating of 3.6/5, and most people seem to like it (although they’re mostly wondering why it has 3 movement speeds.. hmm… Future enhancements, perhaps?!)

It’s a lovely game, and I’m glad it’s turned out to be popular.

… Not bad for 2 days work!

PlayOUYA Plays AGameAWeek

Live on Twitch for a long long time, Team OUYA took to the airwaves and streamed a whole bunch of my games, all playing lovely on OUYA.
You can Watch the Recorded-Steam here.

PlayOUYA_AGAW

They get a bit bored about halfway through, methinks. AGameAWeek-Fatigue!?!

*spoilers*

They play through such wonderful games as My Little Rescue Helicopter, and Greenies MiniQuest.
They also play through terrible games like Karl’s Tiny Quest, which desperately needs fixing up!
They don’t get time to play Space Clusters, or JNKBombers, or a bunch of other great games :(

Nice amount of SpikeDislike at the end, though, to make up for it. :D

This Week…

This week is going to be very-much a rush-job, as I’ve spent most of the week working on getting the new server up and running.. Not a fun experience!!

…I might draw better art, since I somehow managed to get most of the game up and running within the past few hours. Sound, Music, Difficulty Balancing and maybe better art. And about a day and half to cram it all in.
Yikes!!
