The struggle continues.
Well its been a couple months since I was active. When I left I was in the hunt for a job developing games for IOS and Android. It came down to me and 1 other person and they selected the other person due to the fact he had the degree. I don't blame them I understand the importance of the degree and I don't feel my portfolio is strong enough to be able to ignore someone else's degree. Life moves on though and I keep working toward my goal.
I recently was in the hospital for suspicion of a heart attack(I am 29 and not in horrible shape or overweight). This was a major eye opener for me though on the importance of health. I have a much stronger drive in my life now understanding the fragility of life and how quickly it can all change. So it has inspired me to not only work harder on my goals in life but to make sure I enjoy all the moments in life with my children and family.
(Now off the personal not and back to what this blog should be about)
My android game I am working on is taking shape and progressing quickly now. I have rewritten the core systems to function more like a multiplayer message system. This way I can push out a version 2 faster that has multiplayer support with a client-server system. So now the *clients* and *server* pass messages back to each other as if they were all separate entities even though they are part of the same system. I also need to find a good "engine" for droid because I don't really want to do it all by hand if i don't have to. I know about Unity Android but I don't feel like this project is worth the 400$ out of my money at this time. Overall I am a lot more excited about the project then I was at the beginning of the project. Soon I should have screenshot and more details on the project.
