Sometimes I feel like I am cycling against the wind. I am putting a lot of energy and effort into things but don’t seem to moving very far.
For the past couple of weeks I have been trying to find a couple more graphics artist to try out and work with. My present graphics artist is really great but I am not his only client so sometimes he is just too busy to work on things for me. Hence my looking for someone else.
I think I have found two potentials, so I have agreed a rate for some work, provided something for them to work on and now look forward to seeing what they can do. It all takes time and energy with very little to show for it at the moment.
Next up is I think I may have found a great partnership for my game Kampfgruppe. It will involve a change of name for the game and I think will have a great future. More news I hope on this soon. Again time and energy with nothing to show right now.
Most of my spare time is still being spent on getting Invaders from Dimension X! to a state where I can pass it over for an initial test and show the fruit of my labors. I feel like I have done a lot of work and improvements on this in the last couple of weeks but its not quite there yet. Another big push this weekend.
Oh and additionally in the spare time I don’t really have I agreed to review a new book – Java Game Development with LibGDX: From Beginner to Professional 2nd Edition. This looks like a great book for someone both learning Java and game development. I am definitely going to recommend that you buy this book.
And finally in the spare time in my spare time….. I have been thinking about designing my own board game. It will be an American Civil War based game. My wife’s comment was “Are you crazy?!!?”.
One sad piece of news – James Cobb, who is very well known in the wargames arena, sadly passed way in January of this year. James reviewed my first game last year and I was very much looking forward to sending my next game to him for review.
