I know I’ve spoken about it a couple of times, but I think it’s a thing a lot of people don’t know about me: I’ve been practicing Tai Chi for more than ten years. As the art goes, that’s not really a long time, I’m certainly no master. But it’s still kind of a long time to be doing something. I’m very much in one of those situations where the more I know, the more I don’t know. And it’s great.
In the martial art of Tai Chi there is a set of exercises called Chi Kung (or sometimes Qigong) which are often described as standing still to be fit. Sometimes game dev is a bit like that when you realise something you’ve designed could be done a lot better, so you go back and change it. And while it seems like you’ve gone nowhere, since there’s no outward change, your code is now much more fit for purpose. Today is one of those days!
Gonna be a short post this week (and late). But it’s been a long week due to work stuff and being a dad. So, here’s a few games I like, that I hope you do too.
It’s finally time to put some stuff in out little world. Right now we’re not going to put too much, just enough to test that we have a working system. To do that we’re going to create Nouns. Nouns as we all know can be a person, place or thing. But for our purposes we’re going to use it only to describe objects. Always trying to keep things as easy for outselves as we can.
