Grav is dead, long live some new game.

Today we celebrate that grav hasn't gotten any views for a whole day. Up to now there always was at least one...

In other news, I'm attempting to make another game. It's a tile-based platformer, and I'm going to use the little I learned about gravity in this too. The release will be somewhere between next week and next month. Not much else to say, because there simply isn't much else done yet.

Edit: Well, something odd just happened. Somehow 20 people went to play grav, and I didn't do anything other then post it here. I didn't realise people actually read this :).
hi, people.

Making flashgames: an introduction

So, here I am again, with another blog. I've tried having one before, but I lost interest rather quickly, and I didn't want to try to start those back up.
Anyway, what is this about: A couple of weeks ago, I decided I wanted to learn how to use actionscript. As with blogs, I tried before and failed, but the difference was that back then I tried using actionscript 2, and now I'm using actionscript 3. It's an enormous difference, and somehow it helps to motivate me.
Here's a little game I made:
http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/555530
I'm not sure if the high score table is working, which is a problem. I also want to submit it to different portals to see how it does in different places, so I think I'll delete the scoreboard for those submissions.
oh, and there's also a medal in there, and I know it does work, newgrounds just hasn't approved of it yet. The bbs keeps telling doom stories about how it can take months before that happens, I hope I'll fare better.

In the future I hope to talk about other games/projects I make here, and perhaps stuff related to the whole flash game scene. We'll see what happens...
