Adding gratuitous nothingness

Posted by johnhattan, 19 May 1998 - - - - - - · 62 views

Probably gonna take it easy today. I think the haze and dust that's coating most of Texas is getting to me.

Otherwise, I've been making some good progress on the games. The latest dice game, now named "Kizbot", as I was feeling less-than creative during the naming process, is almost playable. I added colored pips to some of the dice, so you can get cool...

CGDC Observations

Posted by johnhattan, 14 May 1998 - - - - - - · 61 views

Well, I actually got some good feedback from the last entry. A couple of folks said that they shared my observations about the CGDC. A couple other people suggested that John Romero, the angry egotistical dwarf, be nominated for next year's People magazine awards. Still another person suggested that I should've just dwarf-tossed him and continued my...

Home to Texas

Awright. I arrived back to my cozy Texas home at 3 o'clock this morning. The CGDC has come and gone.

Well, I'm taking the redeye to Long Beach tonight. I'll be arriving in sunny CA at about 3 AM, so I'll be nice and fresh for my indentured servitude at CGDC.

I put together 10 press kits to pass out to hopeful publishers. I pressed CD's with the existing games (they'll time out on 6/15). Shelly printed up four pages of nice screen shots for me, and we've...

Gettin' done with the GDC

Posted by johnhattan, 22 April 1998 - - - - - - · 60 views

Moving along on the whole CGDC thing. Got my plane tickets and I have a hotel room lined up. Now I just need to have a nicely-debugged set of sample games to hand out.

The new main menu is basically done. You can see it here. It's much nicer than the old main menu, and it should be much easier to expand than the old one. I also had a chance to add a couple...
