zdlr's game development journal > Finally made it!

Posted 22 May 2007

So, after years of starting projects and never getting the time to finish them, I have broken in to the games industry.

Work has eaten my time this past week. I found some old code from a past (failed, shock horror) game project. It was in C and I thought I could thieve/reuse most of it as a base for Space Invaders (after porting it to C# of course [smile]).
