Well, as you guys know, it's been a long time since I released a
new game. The reason for this is not because I've lost motivation to
make new games, or don't want to do it anymore. I just recently
switched to Ubuntu from Windows. Now when I say "switch", I mean I
switched every computer I have access to. None of the computer monitors
here will give you a desktop with a taskbar and Start menu at the
bottom. I made the switch because I didn't want to deal with viruses
and blue screens anymore, and so far it's been a painless ride. The
only difficulty is I can't get our game creation software to run on it,
because it's Windows-only software. So I'm trying right now to figure
out a way to run our familiar game creation software in Ubuntu in a
So for all those who think I'm retiring in game development, you're
wrong. The fact of the matter is, making games is still my passion, and
I actually have a whole backlog of games that I want to make in my
head. And just for those who are REALLY curious, I will tell you that
the first game I work on next will indeed be a remake of the first
School of Torture. Yes, that's right. I don't really want to spoil
anything right now, but let's just say, it's going to be an amazing
game. I'm going to combine everything I know about game design with
everything that I remember from the original School of Torture game.
I'm going to say it right now though, it will not be in 3D. But I hope
sometime I get to make another 3D game again.
Whew.... well this was a long update. I actually had to rework the html
of this text box to allow a scroll bar especially for this one entry.
xDDD Anyway, I will post back probably soon, once I've managed to get a
stable environment working for our game creation software. At that
point, I will start approaching the School of Torture remake. Stay
tuned for that, and have a great day.
