Welcome to my game development journal.
In the coming weeks I hope to inform those who care about my progress. I've been programming for many years now and I'm currently on an industrial placement for my third and penultimate year of university. I'm studying Software Engineering and I'm employed as a .net developer in Newcastle, England.
I'm trying to make that giant leap across the programming chasm towards game development. I've attempted this on a small-scale in the past, mainly with OpenGL and random demos that I wouldn't grace with the term 'game'.
I've been lurking on GDNet forums for some time now with the usual illusions of grandeur that accompany aspiring game programmers. However, it's time to get serious and start from the beginning.
I'll keep you all posted on my progress,
