While I need to put in some more changes to the website (and think of a new poll too), it's about time to start posting about my hobby projects, since that is the whole point of trazoi.net.
As you've probably guessed from the site my main hobby is game development. My eventual goal is to make the happy, fun, emotional roller-coaster packages of enjoyment that I dream of making. My current method of approaching this goal is "Project Diagonal" - developing my own suite of 2D game development code.
In the rest of this post, I will briefly go over the point of Diagonal, a description of my current game Ice Slider, and other plans for the rest of the year. This is also a test of WordPress' summary capability, so click the link to see the rest of the post.
Following on from the comments about the header image from this week I've noticed there's a lot of encouragement for me to actually try Final Fantasy VII. I suppose it is more possible now, since several months ago I acquired a PS1; I found it next to the local trash skip with a note saying "still works, pls take".
There are, however three small problems for me to overcome:
- I need a copy of Final Fantasy VII.
- The PS1 was missing a power cable, so I need to find some way to power the thing up and see if it really does work.
- At some time in its life-time one of its previous owners decided to "improve" the appearance of this particular console:
Additional: Oh, and I'm also not sure if it's compatible with Australian PS1 games. The back sticker seems to suggest it's not; it's got "NTSC" and "J" on it, but I don't know enough about the console to know Aussie games were PAL only.
