Hello, my name is Richard and by trade I’m a web developer. Like most boys/men (or women) that are into video games I too wanted to make them but I’ve never had the real drive to do it. But now that I’ve turn 30 and have a little boy of my own I have found myself wanting to have ago in the evenings while he sleeps.
At the time of writing this I have built 1 game which will be found on this site somewhere called Asteroids. This is basically a clone of the original Asteroids game released in 1979. The game was initially built as an indie game to use for a small competition but that never amounted to anything so the source code has been sat in my private github repo for the best part of 2 years. Since I was setting up this site I decided to dig out the old code and compile it into HTML5 so that I could show it off on my site.
So I’m hoping to use my blog as a way of storing my newly gained experiences, knowledge and goals, maybe even some previews of games I’m working on.
