Returning from some adventures

Postby Partysofa » Tue Dec 17, 2013 7:36 pm

Hey everybody, some of you may remember me, some of you probably won't. I was quite active here for a good while back in '09 and '10 if I remember correctly, but then I got a Mac and then I sort of left I guess. Operating systems and all that. Then that broke down, I got a new computer, installed Ubuntu and well, I missed making games using 001. In my time away I've been making games using other frameworks and engines, but 001 has a special place in my heart when it comes to game developing. Here's a timeline of my activities over the years I've been gone:

November 6th, 2008
Joined 001

Sometime in 2010
Got a Mac, studied hard at school, installed Windows on it, but the hard drive failed on me so I didn't reinstall when I installed a new one
Started using some 3D game engine, got good at C# programming, made a few prototypes with friends

Sometime in 2011-12, can't remember
Wrote a post in this forum again, though not installing 001

2013
Gave up with the 3D engine due to lack of inspiration and modeling skills, went over to a LUA game engine, got good at LUA scripting, made a lot of prototypes
Filled up some notebooks with ideas and whatnot
Got a new laptop, installed Ubuntu
Got a job as a teacher
Good enough salary to buy a decent computer
Downloaded 001, subscribed, and here I am

It's been a sort of crazy ride along the way, but now I'm back and I'm happy to be here. Hope to see some great games from all the new guys!

EDIT: Removed other frameworks and game engines.

Welcome back man! I remember you from back then, good to see you're doing well now.
My game Oncoming Storm should've been released about 2 years ago. Am working on it for about an hour a day, and plan to be finished soon (this is about the 6th time it's been delayed).
