Its been very quite here on Codefridge of late, well quiet…ish. I have secretly been running a closed Beta Testing of a platforming game I’ve been making in Flash.
I’ve thought lately that I’ll be publicly releasing the game. Updating it and fixing bugs people bring up. Also I’ve decided to write more “blog” like articles. I’m not quite sure if these articles will be personal, cause its not called “VinceFridge”. So it’ll probably be articles regarding stuff that I’m interested in, yes geeky things.
As some of you have noticed, you can now share links. I’m using the SexyBookmarks plug-in, just cause its awesome. So at the bottom of all posts you can share. Cause Sharing is Caring.
I’m also abandoning straight up ActionScript 3 coding for games and am now moving over to Flixel. For those of you who have no idea what Flixel is, its basically just a nice Flash Game making framework. It gets rid of some of the redundant coding that’s involved when making games. These redundant things include, saving game progress, keeping track of objects, physics (aka collision detection). There are many more, but it basically boils down to me having more time to focus, on making a good game. As opposed to making a good physics engine, which took me 2 weeks and it still has bugs.
I will soon have a page where you can sign up to become a beta tester for my flash games. As my previous beta testing program failed.
As always my inbox is open and you can use the Contact link to send me a mail. About anything really.
