Now that Fisher-Diver is released, I can finally get back to work on the prequel to Company. Be afraid!
But in the meantime…
Hit the “Ascii Wave Demo” up top for a little toy I’ve been making over the past few days. Particularly difficult math compared to what I have to do for my actual games, which I guess made it particularly good practice. I find that I enjoy math a lot more now that I’m not doing it in a classroom. Actually, this seems to be true for pretty much any activity I can think of.
Flash Player 11 is recommended, because it seems to help this gizmo’s awful performance quite a bit.
Oh, and by the way, the original impetus for this was a post on ProgramThis.net (a neat website for bored programmers) challenging people to create a script that rendered circles to the output console. Thanks to Jordan for that!
Fisher-Diver’s weeklong exclusivity with Armor is over, so I just uploaded it to Kongregate. Let’s all say hello to our friends from there.
(Hello, K folks!)
Also, it’s my birthday tomorrow! How exciting.
Seems like Fisher-Diver is doing pretty well on Armor so far. Their audience usually like my stuff less than some other websites (like Kongregate, in particular), so it’s super reassuring to see a lot of positive comments coming in. And none of the negative feedback has been surprising, so that’s extremely good. A lot of people were complaining about the lack of a save function (for some reason I thought I could get away with leaving this out???), so I went ahead and put that in. Hopefully it’ll boost my scores a bit!
The game goes out to other websites later this week, which is when the real party gets started.
Hey everybody! Fisher-Diver went live yesterday. It’s site-locked to ArmorGames.com for a week, and after that we’ll start allowing it to spread around. I’ll also be able to use this time to make some final adjustments and bug fixes according to the feedback that comes through.

First off, you noticed the new layout, right? Maybe this is how coquettes feel when they decide on a new hair style.
Basically, I fucked up the old website with my goofy shenanigans and couldn’t seem to fix it, so I reinstalled WordPress and picked a shiny new template. It’s wonderfully simple and ought to make browsing this site a little more pleasant. Props to the designer (whose link is sitting at the very bottom of the page)!
Second, Fisher-Diver is juuuuuuuust about ready for release. Literally any day now. Not sure how long Armor will take to put it up (since they have all this stuff prescheduled), but they usually take a week or less.
Finally, just for fun, here are two photographs I took a couple of days ago.
