About this time last month I released “The Glass is Falling” via the Steam Workshop and I received some really good feedback about the game. All of this has gone into creating the update which I uploaded yesterday.
‘The Glass is Falling’ is a game, well more mini-game, that I’ve been working on in the background for the last week. The goal of the game is simple, stop the glass from hitting the floor. It’s available now on the GM:S Steam Workshop, so if you want to have a play before reading on go ahead!
It was the first game that I designed & planned before I started development and I was extremely happy when the final product turned out like the concept art.
I decided last week that I needed a tablet to test my upcoming Android app that I’ve been working on over the last few months. After writing several pro/con lists, I settled on Asus’ Nexus 7.
The main reason I decided to go with the Nexus 7 for app development was that it is running the newest version of Android (4.1.1) which is brilliant for testing my app. Being the flagship Google Tablet I expect that it will get all the major revisions of Android almost as they are released.
I’ve never been a big fan of Minecraft, and I probably will never be, which is a little bit strange seeing as I run a Minecraft server. The game just never clicked for me, I always found it a bit, dull. Though I will admit I’m a little bit jealous when people go out and build some incredible stuff like a 8-bit computer or a 3d printer.

Watching that ship getting constructed was absolutely epic, it even has a gate on it! Only thing it doesn’t do is jump to FTL.

While I prefer the Destiny, you can’t forget the good old Star Destroyer, it brings back memories.... ➦
GameMaker 8.1 (Single word now) has received mixed reviews on the Game Maker Community, while a lot of members have given it thumbs up, many are upset that it has broken their code and is not compatible with certain extensions/DLLs. Personally though not only does it run all my games perfectly, it also runs them a lot faster than Game Maker 8.0 (Two Words).
YoYo Games made lots of noise about the new zoom feature in the room editor, while this is great (bit buggy though), the big thing new feature for me has to be the upgraded font rendering! Now all my games have sharp as crystal text. When Mike Dailly first brought up the whole font improvement, I just didn’t get it, I couldn’t even tell the difference between the two images he put up comparing the new and the old. But now I get it and I am going to rush out and buy the standard edition tomorrow (Literally).... ➦
