Hello World

I had been thinking about starting a blog for a while, as an alternative to writing overlong comments on Rock, Paper, Shotgun posts proposing design concepts that veer off-topic. I was also inspired by almost deciding to download FlashPunk and start writing Flash games. I just read an interview with Jay Pavlina about Super Mario Crossover being his first complete game and how he went about making it. However, I read over a tutorial for writing Hello World and felt that paralysis creep over like it did in the programming class I got a 12% in (with cheating) during high school. Not to mention I've already downloaded both Unity and Construct and haven't opened either of them yet. I've owned some form of Clickteam product since I was in middle school yet I've only finished one game before I started high school that was pretty awful (and had no sound).

Why did backing out once more from actually making a game inspire me to finally start a blog? Hell if I know.

I'm working on a series of posts about design aspects of Phantasy Star Online and how to improve it, but that's a long term project. So part 1 of that might be next. Or something else. In the meantime, why not listen to some music I've written? My musician name is Networks but I don't have a mySpace or anything of the sort yet. Oops.
