Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Posted by Gaiiden, in Weekend Reading 07 February 2014 · 623 views

It's taken me two weeks since coming home from Dubai to get back in the habit of posting these, but I finally am getting back into the swing of things. As much as I enjoy doing a lot of different things for jobs sometimes switching gears can still be difficult. If anyone's missed our Guinness World Record show, you can see it here.

So without further ado, here are your Journal Land entries from the period of 1/31 - 2/7

Stop by to say hello and welcome to new author Lysergide!

  • My attempt at making a platformer - AFS talks about how he's handling sprite sheets in his game, along with his theory that he's been dealing with cluster headaches and learning that hamsters are escape artists (they really can get out of anything, trust me I know)
