Every Friday, Looking Back

Print


4th of August 2008
That’s when I bought the domain name AGameAWeek.com
10 bloody years!!

I’ve released 282 games (54% of AGameAWeek) in that time, which isn’t quite AGameAWeek, but is at least halfway there.
Although, if you include the sub-games (eg, advent collections are 26 games, each) it bumps that number up to just over 400 games. (About 78% of AGameAWeek)
Either way, "AGameOccasionally" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

But this is no time to be transfixed by numbers. In fact it's probably time to realise I should probably have done something a bit moreinteresting out of this whole endeavour, by now.

I’m still squandering my skills on the ground floor.
100 OUYA Games (About 9% of the OUYA catalogue) hasn't gotten me anywhere.
It's time to focus, and come up with a bigger plan.

... or just keep making these silly games that people occasionally enjoy!

Yeah, I’ll probably just do that!!

; Pio Slots

Pio makes a little retro slot machine, and then everyone starts reminiscing about Amsoft Fruit Machine!

; QBert

Spinal's starting a QBert clone, but doesn't know where to begin.
Jay chips in with a subtle suggestion.
          socoder.net/?Topic=7096

After that, Spinal suggests that Jay should probably put his AGameAWeek powers of quick-coding into some sort of useful place, and maybe throw a few tutorials online.
Jay would happily oblige if he didn't just cram everything (and I mean EVERYTHING!) into damn near idential arrays, all the bloomin' time.
Probably best not to teach god-awful habits like that!

SoOutside


; Wet TShirt

Dabz has a day fit for that of an adventure game.

; Modern Technology

Spinal finds it hard to find a new job because computers, and lazy half-assed broken job-sites, continue to make things increasingly difficult.

SoDisasterous


; Vega Woes

The off-the-rail kickstarted Vega handheld Spectrum hits another hurdle, as SKY (The Satellite TV folk) have pulled permission for Vega to use the Spectrum/Sinclair branding.
I think that's probably the first time I've found myself uttering the phrase "Well done, Sky!", and not meaning that the clouds have opened up after a particularly lengthy heatwave.

; Go Mario, Go!

Spinal needs a plumber.
Could he attempt it himself!?
Stay tuned to find out.

Jay finally gets to play WarioWare Gold, and .. isn’t particularly happy with the results.

The Ronseal of videogames.
... or is it!?
