Arcade Poker's Done

Sign in to follow this  


Arcade Poker is basically done, and Shelly's claiming that it's one of the better ones in the set. We'll see. I'm probably gonna spend today putting sound-support into some of the recent stuff I've written. I usually forget to put all of the zany beeps and clicks into the games, and I end up having to scramble at the end. I'm gonna make sure that's not gonna happen this time!

I haven't gotten any comments stating that my pages look horrible using [insert browser name here], so I'm gonna assume that everything's working as normal.

Talked to the devgames webmeister (OK, email) over the weekend. Turns out that the developer diaries are the most-read feature on his site, and I'm just musing as to what make's 'em popular. It can't be because of any technical knowledge I'm passing along, because I really haven't. Is it just that folks like to get a peek on someone else's development process? Perhaps it's just interesting in a "programmer in a fishbowl" fashion, ala Jennicam. Any ideas or musings? Do I need to put a camera in here with real-time updates?

Interestingly enough, I've gotten several questions in the past weeks asking if I have any plans to make larger-format games someday. I must say that the answer is "I don't know". Frankly, I think that small-format games are always gonna be around --when "Risk" was invented, it didn't kill off the market for Checkers. I prefer playing small games over big ones. If anything, I'd like to have the luxury of being able to put out one 10-game pack every three years, but those games would be absolutely top-notch --original well-tested designs with professionally designed graphics, sound, etc. I've certainly got the code-foundation to do such a thing, I just don't know if I could ever make it financially feasible.

Maybe someday. . .
