Enemy Movement Test

Started working on a game idea I had. Got the enemies up and running in the sense that they can:

  • Move in a random direction (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) at a random speed
  • Rotate randomly
  • Spot the player (although nothing happens at the moment)

Obviously still more needs to be done as ultimately they’d need to do something when they spot the player, not bump into each other/map boundaries etc but it’s a good start.

Felt like uploading the video as it looks kind of weird. Or I’m easily amused at the moment.

The re-education of Ashley

After a lot of thought and anguish and talking people’s ears off I’m getting closer to making a decision about what I’m doing with my life.I’ve known for some time that I don’t want to be at work (since pretty much the first day) but kind of stuck there because of a need to pay rent and I’m not really sure where I want to go.  I enjoyed my animation course, but soon realised it’s not for me.

For a while I considered doing a MA in Game Design and I still might (going to defer it for now), but I’m leaning towards just trying out a lot of different things at this stage and see where it leads me.  So the areas I’m thinking of are:

  • Web design
  • UX
  • Android app development
  • Game design
  • Illustrator

I’ve started with the web design stuff already (as I had a project that I needed to get to work on already) and again it’s been fun, but I don’t think ultimately its for me.  Hopefully not all the above will end up like that, but we’ll see.

What I’m hoping to do is spend a few months trying out those things and see what fits and then leave work.  There might be a period of unemployment but I think this would be beneficial to then have more dedicated time to work on things.

So yeah.  I have a plan.  A plan to start again.
