ludum dare complete!

I finished my first Ludum Dare. My submission here:

mount & blade & ludum dare

So I’ve got some non-cliche stuff going on for a change here. One thing is I’ve taken on an slightly insane task. I’ve been messing around with the mod engine for mount and blade and it requires python. So I downloaded python and started going through the instructions. After encountering several hiccups it turns out […]


I know my posts here have dropped off a lot since I started working on the Cliche Studio stuff and the website there. I’m going to attempt to import my posts(which are only half the story over at the cliche site) over here to share with people that are following me here but not over […]

Thinking that if there was something to show off it’d be helpful in gaining support. Minor problem with this […]

Holiday breaks and lack of (visible) activity

Also been working on starting up a company with my good buddy James. James has been writing about our company exploits […]

Google Wave and Game Map
