Hello Again World.

Welcome to my new blog. This is a replacement for my Blazing Games Development blog which due to the fact that Blazing Games Inc. is closing down is no longer appropriate. This will be fairly similar to the Blazing Games blog in that the focus will be on game development and programming. Unlike the old blog, I will not even pretend to keep to a regular schedule for updating this one. As I do plan on continuing my 1GAM (One Game A Month) challenge, I will be posting here at least once a month.

So, at least once a month I will have a postmortem of whatever game I released for that month. Some of those games will be part of my NES RPG project. For those who haven't followed my development blog, this is a project where I am slowly creating a quality role-playing game for the Nintendo Entertainment System (or at least emulators as most people don't have flash cartridges for their NES). This is being done by creating a number of mini-games that explore different facets of the NES and slowly lead to the parts necessary for a full RPG. This is combined with articles explaining the learning and though-process behind the code.

The progress of the NES RPG project will be slow as I am heading back to University to upgrade my credentials to a Bachelor degree. This is also the reason why I am not going with a weekly format. More to the point I am hoping to get part-time work while going to school so my bank account isn't drained too much. So, if you know a Canadian company looking for some programming work (not necessarily Game development, though obviously that would be great as well) let them know about me or me about them. Thanks and I hope people actually read this blog in the future!
