It Starts...

I set a personal goal recently to get a least one post up per month, so ready or not, here it goes! While the title screen may not make for a very impressive screenshot, there has been a fair bit of coding going on in the background. Well, as much as is possible when you have no real free time to speak of anyway. Of particular note, the GUI system has been rewritten to have a cleaner and more user-friendly interface and, as you may be able to tell from this post's screenshot, the "Bounce!" project has been started. Unfortunately, after getting a good ways into the project I learned that there is already another indie game with the title "Bounce" so I will need to come up with a different name before too much longer.

The game will basically be a 3D remake of my old Pong-type game from back in college, featuring a variety of characters batting a shiny glowing orb back and forth while moving around on hovering platforms. I intend to add a few new game concepts to spice things up a little, and ultimately I'd like to give this tiny little game a very high level of polish. This might actually even involve paying an artist or two to replace my horrible programmer art! I still don't have tons of time to devote to the project, but I am excited that things are moving forward, slowly but surely.
