Y7 - D135 : A Day at the Beach
15th May, 2015
Yesterday I started a new theme. A road, some sand, some water, stars, moon and some boats.
In terms of effort, it wasn't exactly a difficult theme to create, but along the way I stumbled over a ludicrous amount of bugs that were lingering in the game's engine.
You'd think, after the past few weeks, that all the annoying stuff would now be long gone, but .. nope..
Background objects were overlapping the foreground tiles, stars were showing up over the top of floors, and all manner of other odd behaviour was going on.
Still, at least I could SEE the issues, this time around, unlike that silly Lava theme, where everything's too dark to see anything!
So, with bugs fixed and the theme looking "ok", it's time to move on to the next theme. .. Or maybe some music for this theme? Not sure.. We'll have to wait and see what kind of mood I'm in, today!
Daily Doodle : Taking a Ride
Platdude goes for a ride, and waves to.. um.. whoever that is.

Fairly often, depending on the content. If there are bees in the dreams, they'll wake me up with a startle, and I'll be in a Bee-Wary mood all day!!!
Typically, though, my dreams are boring and mundane, and are usually about coding.
My dreams are as boring as my regular awake-time, and I often find myself working on a new game idea, or fixing a bug, or occasionally tappity-tapping away at something important.
Then I wake up, realise that none of it actually happened, and have to do it all over again!
Stupid dreams.. Grrr
Many MANY AGameAWeek games have evolved from gameplay ideas featured in my dreams, so I'm thankful that I tend to remember what was going on in them.
