Victory

Went down some three stairs in a dungeon. Couldn't capture the full error message, because copy-pasting it to Notepad crashed Notepad itself! But I got this:


It looks like JADE has lots of issues, but what the heck, I'm playing it anyway. It's interesting to follow the development of this game.

Bad news

I guess they are bad. Teemu is now in ice, I will possibly continue it when Kaduria's first playable version is ready. There is a lot of stuff to add in Teemu, but I just can't concentrate on two major projects at the same time. I even have difficulties to add some features in Brick Atelier I need in the development of Kaduria (tile append to be exact).

I think Teemu doesn't need that much work and maybe if I keep a distance it will be easier to return and finish the job.

Other bad news is that I'm expecting some problems in my personal life... it may reflect to game development. No, I'm not getting married, that's the worst mistake any roguelike developer can do. I'm just having problems with everyday life, which is supposed to be easy.

JADE released

I was disappointed when I saw JADE 0.1.0. I can understand the lack of content, but the engine just doesn't seem to have that next gen roguelike feel. JADE is like ADOM with bigger world map. Fan boys seem to be happy though. I was looking for something more, like ideas to borrow. It's just starting to look like I am the only one with actual new ideas for roguelikes. So all that bragging I've done (not that seriously) can actually become true and Kaduria will simply destroy all previous roguelikes. Well I guess Stone Soup is pretty cool, but I haven't really played it much since I always die in the first or second level.
