@Socoder I was playing Maze War (below) on a Xerox Alto at my grandfather's office during '74-'76, playing against one of the guys who worked with him who was at another Alto. Early networked 3D game and one hell of a unique experience given the time. #retro #classic

Depends if my quality of life diminished over time, or if I stayed at an age where I could still do physical and mental abilities without any problems.

The way the question is written, it can be taken to be more than one person, so...

I wish I could but I've not been involved in any outside of the ones I've made really, hahaha!

Question of the Day : January 28th

What was the first book you can remember reading?
Sat, 28 Jan 2023, 02:10
rockford
One of the many Janet And John Ladybird books.
Sat, 28 Jan 2023, 02:21
Jayenkai
I don't remember them, but my parents bought me a lot of the Mr Men books.
The first book I really remember fondly is also a Ladybird book, but it was a maths one, and was full of multiplication tables and fun numerical facts and things.
...
Gawd, I must've been such a fucking nerd..

I loved the Mr Men books, but I didn't have very many. We bought my son the boxsets of Mr Men and Little Misses BITD. Not sure he enjoyed them ltbh. He never read them by himself. When I was a kid I could tell quote them all (well the ones I did have) word for word.

I still remember "Beware of giants!" from Mr Greedy.

The first book series I remember was this load of bollocks, The Village With Three Corners. Linkage"

Leaving the Dr Seuss (and his other pen name(s)) ones out, as all of those would be the first.

So, the first one I can remember reading which was a fave, I can't remember the name of, but it was a Christmas themed book, that was also a scratch and sniff and had wonderful watercolor type illustrations.

The first one I can remember (and remember the name of) was Miss Suzy. Pic below. A wonderful story about the squirrel, Suzy and it had toy soldiers in it. Of course this led to one of the biggest disappointments as a child -- I wanted toy soldiers after reading the book. Like in the book, not GI Joes, etc. Well, they didn't make toy soldiers like that anymore. Closest you could get is Nutcrackers at Christmas time.

Question of the Day : January 29th

How do you use music to convey emotion in a game or film?
Sun, 29 Jan 2023, 02:39
Jayenkai
Rarely. Most of my music is happy cheery plinky plonky choons that stop when you're dead.
Does that count?
Happy until death?
