I’m excited about the following post, not because it is especially insightful, but because it features this blog’s first interactive example! Games are so dependent on interactivy, it’s virtually impossible to explain certain key concepts without some kind of playable demonstration. Sometimes I need to make my point about game design with a game! To that end, I’m teaching myself Actionscript so I can make my own little illustrative experiences. I probably won’t have time to create too many of these, but this one was a lot of fun to make, and I hope you like it. (I’m still trying to come up with a good portmanteau… Game-onstrations? Exam-plays?)
I also registered a new domain, so now you can find this blog at www.thetipofthesphere.com. (Some PR firm is squatting on the article-less version.) Old links will still work, but this url is more memory friendly.
