Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Sign in to follow this  


Interesting to see how fast the view numbers dropped in the two weeks since I skipped announcing the posting of Weekend Reading on Facebook and twitter. The normal ~700 views dropped to 258 the first week and 176 the second. Can't say I'm surprised - I know I rely a lot on social media to remind me of things... still, wanted to see what would happen.

Here are your Journal Land entries from the period of 7/6 - 7/13

Greetings to new Journal Land authors necro1895, klapstoelpiloot, Matthewj234, AlexF, Shawn Greer and Dancin_Fool!

    Game Dev Stuffs

    • Gnoblins - Development journal of an indie game - Ashaman73 departs from his usual updates on Gnoblins and talks about considerations for designing a game using procedural content. JTippets, another fan of procedural content, chimes in with additional resources
    • The Bag of Holding - ApochPiQ dumps a bunch of random game dev thoughts into this entry - some may apply or be helpful to you. If so, do let him know in the comments as that could prompt him to write a more in-depth entry on the topic...
    • New Old Things - Endurion adds another boss to his Commodore64 game project, but does change things up a bit
    • Shawn Hargreaves' Blog logo+%20bullet.png - Shawn Hargreaves is hard at work on Windows Phone 8 but wants to get some samples out for the DirectX Tool Kit so he's asking what people would like to see so he can prioritize
