The End of March (or: Why I didn't write any blogposts in march)

Beginning of March

Until the 6th of March I was snowboarding/skiing in the Alps, yeah! So I had a little disadvantage, dun duun. Nevertheless, I have decided to learn a new programming language for March:
Click to visit haxe.org
The one who convinced me to use this is my 1GAM partner and mentor @tobiaseriksson
This is the engine I use
So armed with these weapons, I started to learn Haxe, which is quite similar to Java. I think it was fairly simple to adapt this new language and learn the new engine, so thats good!

Progression of March

So first off, I want to tell you something about one of my favourite things in my life. It's a forest youth recreation home of Heilbronn (the city I live in) and I know, that sounds kind of boring. BUT ITS NOT! It's one of the best things happening in my life and I am proud to be part of it. In the past I have attended to it as a kid, in the meantime I am a counselor myself. It's a colorful, loving place, a paradise I would suggest, because it is a very accepting. Passion is what drives everybody there.
So during March there was a ot of stuff going on about this! It takes up alot of time, and I am happy that we barely have electronic devices up there, so I was not able to haxe on my game at all during the time there.

Anyways, during the progression of march I did some progress! The people who follow my tweets have seen all my progress posts and were able to play them hands-on.

But, oh wait, I havn't even told you what kind of game I am making this month, have I?

Crazy Lava Taxi Game Thing

That's the quirky name of my march game. It's a topdown 2D taxi game, where you have to dodge Lava in order to get the people you pick up to the desired destination!
Go ahead an play all the little steps of progress I made, right and simple in your Browser!
March 8
You can read the attached changelog, when you scroll down in the "newer" versions.
Heres the newest version!

End of March

It's a few more days, and I am still not close to finishing the game. But I am getting there! Maybe even with the extended deadline of 4 more days into april. But I am looking forward to finishing this game, it was very fun creating it!
