Finally an IDEA!!!! February 16, 2006
Man, this is going to stop me in everything else I'm doing for a little while. Although, this idea isn't hard to do, I just have to do it. I figure, I can start today and be done in 2 weeks. Anyway, I majored in Computer Science in school because I wanted to learn how to make video games. But I never really learned to like programming graphics. Everything else is fun, but graphics suck. They would be cool if they were easy, but they're far from it. However, I still want to make a game.
Ever since I moved over to web programming, I thought the opportunity to make a game was drifting away. However, I learned of a game that was completely web based, and after that I figured that I can make a game that's web based! Why the f%$#@$ not? But, I needed an idea. Today, it popped in there.
There's nothing like it out there that I've come across, there's not even real video games like it out there. It's not a huge time consumer but can consume a lot of time if you really want it to. I just hate the internet right now, and when I'm bored, I want to be able to go to a website, have fun for a few minutes, then go back to being bored. This site will be more fun as more people join, so it'll be a social game. But not really a game in the sense that you're probably thinking. It'll just be a fun way to waste a few minutes.
I sent myself an email today summarizing my ideas, and will get to work on them tonight. It's not really a lot of work, especially since I have my new software that I wrote, so it'll be fun to do as well. I'll let you know when it's up.
[Update] Today I made some progress. I've decided on a Codename for the project: Salzburg. If you know, or can find out, the historic significance of that name, then you know just a small piece of what the game will be about. There's a lot more to it, but that's what the content will be :)
