New Year, New Stuff

I know it's almost the end of January but I've been busy doin' stuff ūüôā

New host

I moved the site when I was sent the end of year renewal by my old host three months before it due to be paid. I'd have been fine with it if they sent it 30 maybe even 60 days before but 90 days before it was due? and I was told to pay up within 7 days. They also wanted to charge me for a domain renewal that I didn't buy through them. So much for getting a better service because I paid for it. I've moved over to and will use their free hosting for a few months.  Lets see if they can keep me happy, tall order I know but things seem to be ok at the moment.

New Project

After we put Halloween Defense up for sale on IndieCity we started work on Christmas Defense. Same shtick with a new engine that would support 1280x720 windowed or fullscreen, better character animations, bigger maps, blah, blah, blah... Only thing was IndieCity didn't open for public sales until just before Christmas, and to date we've made one sale on HD. So we scrapped CD, in favour of working on the next version of the Tower Defense engine and not making a seasonally themed game with it.  I've spent the past few weeks working on the editor which compiles the XNA content files & packages the game or runs it for debugging.  I'm almost ready to start working on the more TD specific parts of the editor, I just have the component layout editor and the in game scripting engine to finish and then I can start posting screen shots of the game.

New Work Projects

Don't worry I haven't quit my job, I'm just coming to the end of a project and once I get the UAT out of the way I get to start work on a Proxy¬†Server Project. I love new projects¬†especially¬†when I've done a deal with the Project Manager that I don't have to do any of the documentation ūüėÄ

New Hovel

The wife and I are looking at moving to a new bungalow  just outside Southampton, which is a massive step up from the poky hole we live in at the moment.

All in all 2012 has got off to a great start with all new stuffs, and the¬†promise¬†of more new stuffs ūüôā
