A Big-Short Update

2017-01-31 | Daniel | 526 views

A few things have happened since my last post almost two years ago. Just wanted to note down a few important things that have happened since then!

  • I graduated from the University of Arkansas, finally ending my many years of schooling. It was nice to have the extra time that college provided me, but ultimately I am glad to have moved on to working full-time at Walmart.

  • It might not look like it, but this website has gone through a few updates both visually and functionally. The largest of these updates is that all posts are now stored on a database rather than as files. It's been a struggle to maintain due to my lack of experience, but at this point things are pretty stable!

  • I had the chance to participate in the 36th Ludum Dare. My game is called Ancient Blocks, a puzzle game that asks the player to place blocks to guide colored balls of energy around a small arena. The player progresses by getting the balls into the correct color energy bay. The experience was a very difficult after my game development hiatus, but it was totally worth it to complete a new game.

  • Finally, most people already know this, but Rachel and I are getting married in September! We're still in the planning stages, but so far have a venue, some vendors, a guest list, etc.

I know it's not much of an update, but I just wanted to get a few things out there. Enjoy!

Thanks, Daniel
