Finals in 2 weeks, I missed lots of classes during my travelling time and I had to make up for it, I've worked two jobs and had to deal with stupid wallet issues, I am looking for a new place to stay, and and...
Let's stop all these stupid excuses and just focus on finishing what I have started!
I've started that puzzle game, and my progress is... well, just have a look:
What I have done so far.
(Use arrow keys to move around the cursor. That's it)
And then go ahead and have a look at the changelog.
It's not entirely true, but reflects the project in a pretty good way.
Anyways, I have also purchased a new game, and as some people of you know, I am still a huge Nintendo fan and yes, I do like games that seem to be for little kids, but are actually super cool but most of the people do not understand.
I bought Animal Crossing New Leaf for the 3DS, and it's super fun!
Okay anyways, I don't have ton of time to talk about things I want to do in the future or whatnot. I have to learn for finals now and try to wrap up that puzzle game.
This has probably been one of the craziest months I had ... so far in my life - in a very positive way of course.
But #GameDev News first:
As you can tell from the title, because of the crazy circumstances, I will not be able to publish my May Game in May. Not even in the OneGameAMonth deadline ending in June 4th (maybe a prototype?).
But, as I have promised, this project is not grounded at all. I will finish it in June, hopefully very quickly, so I can work on my June/July game in C++ again (@Koutyboy, I'll need your help!).
So why the hack is this month's game delayed again?
Yeah I know, it's the second game in a row that I couldn't finish within a month. That doesn't mean I'm not trying!
In April it was mainly because I first had to learn C++, and then programming a game in C++ and I am still lacking a lot of programming skills! I even bought a "C++ GameDev" book!
May was different, though. In the middle of my second semester I was travelling around, coming to a crazy total of 7 countries I have visited or at least travelled through.
As you may know from my previous post, @MeganPraz was visiting in May, and after the exploration of some parts of Germany I was tagging along to Amsterdam and Paris for a week.
And if this wasn't enough of travelling and missing a lot of school, I am currently far up north in Sweden with my Mum after a crazy road trip of roughly 2,5k km (1,5k miles) checking out the outback!
The most confusing thing here really is, that currently in the summer the sun never goes down completely and it's always light out.. it's midnight right now and I am not used to this at all!
Anyway, I should go to sleep, because tomorrow we are going to drive the whole way from Skelleftea back to Heilbronn and it's going to be extremely stressful on my body and mind, I could use some more sleep!
Here are some expressions of the Sweden trip so far:
|This was taken o the ferry from Germany to Denmark at 6am-ish|
|One of the many many many lakes up here in Lappland. This one is right in front of our hotel!|

Have a wonderful day, and stay tuned for progress on my game! Starting Monday, the crazy travel days have ended, and it's just some more crazy university learning and #GameDev-ing going on!
