Weekend Reading: Tales from Journal Land

Sign in to follow this  


No, Weekend Reading isn't moving back to Sunday, I've just been a bit overly pre-occupied getting ready to leave for Shanghai tomorrow, as ChinaJoy is flying myself and a fellow journalist from Events For Gamers out to cover their China Game Developers Conference. I'll see what kind of internet access we have when I get there and be reporting on the event either while I'm there or after I get back the following week.

Here are your Journal Land entries from the period of 7/13 - 7/22

Greetings to new Journal Land authors TMKCodes, miicchhii, Burning Hand, warbringers and TyberthiaGaming!

    • Pixel ? Tile ? World logo+%20bullet.png - Servant of the Lord has realized that the system he uses to help organize his files and folders doesn't really work well for cross-platform development thanks to how some platforms handle certain symbols like [] and ().
