Well, might as well start here...
Hello everyone, my name is Josh. I'm from Arizona, and am 16 years old.
When I was 11 years old I began tooling around with Game Maker
, and made some very simple games by myself over the next three years.
I then joined the Game Maker Community, but have become less active as of late. Over the years I have begun many projects, most of which are so lacking in structure that I won't post them here. My main struggle with game development is the designing aspect--I get too anxious with my undeveloped ideas, try to throw a game together, and then drop it within a couple of weeks once I don't know what to do next. Repeat.
However, over this past year, I've learned to overcome that, and am now actively developing an educational game called Definitive Defense
. In short, it's a tower defense game where whether or not a shot hits depends on if the player answers a vocabulary question correctly. The player is given a definition, and must choose which of the four possible words given is best defined by said definition.
Over the past several months a couple of friends and I have been running the GameCOG Community
, which is meant to be a site where developers and post projects and blog about development without the hassle of creating their own site.
Just recently I've been looking to write some music of my own. I've been tooling around with MadTracker 2.
So I guess that's me.
EDIT: What in the world is up with this Manbaby stuff? Are you guys trying to scare away newbies around here?
