Coma : Finished

Made Coma for the 2nd YYGGMCIRCRDC, which placed FIRST OUT OF SIX HELL YEAH.  Well actually it's not that great because a lot of people came in during the middle of the competition and therefore didn't have a chance to do a full-blown game.  It was a tie between my game and creativebunch's until the tiebreaker judge leaned it to my side.  The game actually sucks a fair amount; my favorite in the compo was by far Goebbels' entry.  He makes a bunch of art games, they're all pretty cool.  That one's his best, easily.

Arrow Keys, Z to do stuff, X to do stuff later.

Films in 10 hours

Yesterday myself and 8 friends divided ourselves up into two teams and made our own films in 10 hours based on the theme "Oh God... What Have I Done?"  For those of you that actually go to my school and are reading this (first off why are you reading this), the teams were decided after several hours of debate over the IRC:

Team 1: Me (head editor), Adam (head actor), Louis (scriptwriter/actor), Eugene (actor)
Team 2: Drew (head editor/director), Brandon (actor), Arthur (actor), Jack (actor), Justin (actor)

The contest started at 1 PM and ended at 11 PM; the full 10 hours.

Programming via Pepsi binge.

The idea was to not sleep until I finished the Pannenkoekenhuis Flash port to release on MochiAds and make some money for a thing at Stanford over the summer.

Lot'so Pepsi
It was fine, the first two days and two nights I made some progress.  Couldn't carry a conversation past "mhmm yeah that's cool ahah how awesome" though.  Then the afternoon of the second day, I almost threw up and the caffeine wore off and almost passed out so I slept for ~11 hours and had some weird dream about being in someone's backyard in the future.  It was basically "wow this garden is awful and unmaintained and the grass is up to my elbows, guess I could sleep here for a while I hope the owners don't mind."

Third morning I woke up, looked at my code.  It was fucking disgusting, and none of it made any sense.

So don't try this at home kids.*

Meanwhile redesigning my blog so it's not so squashed, thinking a bird-themed one this time.

*I probably will again in a few months because above all it really was pretty interesting.
