Dusting off the ol’ website

I’ve decided that it’s finally time to make proper use of www.wahlware.com. Based on my earliest email on file, I’ve had this website since (at least) August 8, 2007. While having an @wahlware.com email for the past 11.5 years has been pretty cool and “official” sounding, I’ve always wanted to (eventually) do a lot more with this website. Currently my plan is to use this site as a hub for my games, primarily in the form of a dev blog with updates about the game I’m working on, with screenshots, snippets, and random thoughts related to gaming and game development.

I don’t know how long the game I’m working on will take to complete, but when you’re at home with a three-year-old daughter (who I’m pretty sure is an X-Men) life can be very challenging. It’s hard to stick to any kind of plan, let alone deep work that requires a lot of focus like programming/coding.

My goals for 2019:

  • Establish a solid and satisfying work routine that will lead to a productive year of game development.
  • Focus on working well as opposed to¬†focusing on deadlines and working quickly.
  • Attend a convention, show a demo, receive feedback, maybe have a contest or drawing, and just have fun with it.
  • Connect with the gaming community and individuals that are interested in the games that I’m making or want to make.

I think it’s gonna be a pretty good year.
