Jeopardy for Computer Science

Sometimes, class gets quiet. Especially during review days, students usually don’t speak up on their own to ask questions. So, this semester I wrote a little Jeopardy program and used it for both of my classes. The students at the community college I’m teaching at seemed to enjoy it; I was even asked to make …

Fin ‘n’ Kit DevLog #6

Not a lot to update with at the moment. The semester is coming to a close, so I’m grading and preparing the final exams and such, so consequently I’ve slacked off on Fin ‘n’ Kit development — It has been 12 days since the last coding session I did. And I’m just coding now because …

Fin ‘n’ Kit DevLog #5

Today I worked on level artwork (though I’m still not done!) and updated object behaviors. It is all looking pretty spiffy! Right now everything is still, I will have to add in animations later, but the animations aren’t really necessary to have the team go ahead and work on levels. Check out this video for …

Fin ‘n’ Kit DevLog #4

A good couple days of coding, working on the dolphin and cat physics, and adding in the level scrolling and item behaviors! Still have some work to do. Want to add better art, and fix up the behaviors.

Fin ‘n’ Kit DevLog #3

On today’s episode of “I meant to program for more than just 3 hours today (but the day isn’t over yet!)”, I worked on the Fin ‘n’ Kit level editor! I was interrupted by a phone call that ended up lasting about 45 minutes. It was my dad, who put his brother on the call …

Fin ‘N’ Kit DevLog #2

I don’t have a lot of time to program today, since I teach class tomorrow and still would like to grade some assignments before then. Everything else I got done early today, so I snuck in some gamedev. Beginning the set up of the map editor. The original version of Fin ‘N’ Kit (originally Delfino …

Fin ‘N’ Kit DevLog #1

The Moo team is working on updating Fin ‘N’ Kit – an old mobile game I made two years ago with Gideros and Lua. Because of some of the constraints with Gideros when it comes to PC support, I’ve spent the day creating a Fin ‘N’ Kit C++ project using my Kuko framework, which is …

Other Stories

I want to finish the two unfinished Android games that I began last year, Delfino & Katyuno and Fantazio de Esperanto, so that I can work on my language learning RPG, but also so that I can try to collaborate with other people to make some games. Specifically, I want to try to find people …

Language Selection in Video Games

I like supporting multiple languages in my video game projects. Usually, I’m focused on English and Esperanto, since that’s what I speak, but there’s no reason other languages can’t be supported. Usually on websites, I see flags used to represent language options – as an English speaker, the flag is usually either the U.S. flag …

Rayto: Language Fantasy Dev Log #1

What is Rayto? Now that life is beginning to calm down a bit, I’ve been working on gaining momentum with my game development again. My current project is called “Rayto: Language Fantasy”, which I’m writing with C++, SDL2, and Lua 5.2. Once I get more work done, I’ll post a video about it, but right …
