Scope Problem ... maybe?

Hi all,

after abandoning the simple game, I may have started something HUGE ... as in: a little too big as the next step, considering that it is just another "getting familiar with XYZ" project.

Eventually I want to create level, normal and depth maps through pcg methods and use WebGL & shaders for interesting 2D lighting effects.
It is not that the...


Getting to know the Canvas

Canvas, HTML, JavaScript, Tetris and 1 more...
I am familiarizing myself with JS and HTML5, Canvas first ... not WebGL yet.

The first thing I am trying to do is programming what I had in mind when I heard that there is a combination between Tetris and 2048.
Not sure if the game mechanics will make a lick of sense, but I want to know what it feels like.

Working Title: NPAA (Not Proc At All)

I have...


Game Jam Focus

The last Journal Entry inspired a reply ... which inspired an Advert:
http://www.gamedev.net/classifieds/item/2992-game-jam-tools-team-effort/

My next steps will probably be in the web development / quick prototyping domain, no matter how we decide to follow up on the Game Jam Team effort idea. Some sandbox projects, feasibility studies and probably som...


Struggling ... what are the next steps

crossroad, decisions, language and 4 more...
Hi all,

for some reason my brain does not work the way I want it to work right now.
Guess work plays a role, it feels like a thought deadlock :-/ ... so here is a braindump for personal clarity.
I don't even know if I have posted something similar recently.

Probably the conflicting goals are one problem:
I want to finish something asap ... 100% and poli...


Starting a new project ... series

I will try to squeeze some time into a project where I can bring several ideas together and just toy with them.
I registered the domain: http://www.procgames.com and I am working on a GWT based website.

The plan is writing a tutorial series while creating a framework for procedural content generation (and games that use it).
Maybe I will also write some...


My two favorite ideas

Hi again,

I think I will replace the current content of the site ConceptWorld.org with a more simple site and take a lean startup approach to see if it can go viral without much effort.
The idea is that I can concentrate on developing the platform while a developing community creates the appeal of the world ... not doing my work for me, but working on t...


Some project ideas #001

Posted by DareDeveloper, in Project Ideas 06 July 2013 · 465 views
ideas, tutorials, web development and 2 more...
Guess the title is supposed to be kind of funny ... I have way too many ideas and am probably going to dump a lot of them here over time.

I finally wrote some of my ideas down for a coursera.org course: Startup Engineering. This is the result:

Usually I would try to pull off a lean startup with the Shared Intellectual Property World, but webserver admi...
