My plan to reboot is to teach myself game development in ActionScript for the Flash Player. My impression is that Flash is a neat method of making small games or prototyping neat ideas and sticking them on the internet for all to see. There is also a bunch of great libraries now, like flixel and FlashPunk.
What I'll be posting here is an informal journal of my progress as I work my way through ActionScript programming: what's neat, what's problematic, and what bone-headed mistakes I make along the way. Enjoy!
