Life as an “indie developer” sounds like the dream life, doesn’t it? Get up, sometime around the crack of noon, casually sit around and bash out a bit of code while sitting and enjoying not having a boss or any real world commitments.
I’m starting random, part time game development again. Last time I did this with any sort of regularity was sometime around 2015 as part of the One Game A Month Challenge, which after this month ends will be no more.
Before we begin… I know, there’s nothing particularly special about drawing on a screen in 2D and making objects move. However, the device I’m using isn’t actually designed to do this.
The ODroid GO is a handheld console that sells itself as a device that will run emulators of all your favourite 8bit systems. And it does that job rather well, I spent at least five minutes with mine playing Tetris, and it was a good emulation.
James’s DEV Profile I currently live opposite a building site (where I live was a building site six months ago), it’s a good visual metaphor for software development.
