Aight, dawg. 8)

But I probably won't work on any more details because I don't want to stray any more away from Tankies. I need to FINISH Tankies.. grar. :evil: Havn't been in the mood to do anything lately though. *sigh* :P

I've decided to give this project a codename for now so I can call it something other than 'the project coming up' or whatever. So since details are still in the shadows and I plan on having the story being a bit dark, I'll call it Project Dark for now.

'Dark' is the synonym of 'stupid' in Hungarian slang. :lol:

@CoBB: In the US we say "dim" for stupid, it's probably related.

Just a little heads up, my ISP's user servers are down for a bit, so any files or images from my site are inaccessable. Once you see my avatar again that means it's up. Until then I can't show anything new unless I get a small free server that allows outside linking, which basically means nothing. :P Not a big deal though, I just got a new animation that I made and I was going to change it to my avatar but meh.

My god, more hype than I expected..

All the same article but they're all over the place. I didn't ask for that, oh well. I'll try not to disappoint y'all when I start it off. I'm not going to be going totally solo on this either, like I had already said. Tankies is priority, just.. I won't force myself to work on it, otherwise I might end up hating it :P

Yes, hypothizing is fun to do, but it doesnt have much to do with the actual creation of a program. Investing too much time in hypothizing usually leads to less to or no results.
I like the idea of creating a game in iterations. First iteration should create a minimal but working and fun game. Following iterations implement more and more features, where every iteration should produce a playable and releasable game.

Problem is that without setting a finish line, you will keep making iterations, which results in a unfinished project, like Corbin ;)

True, true, Thats what I learned while making Corbin. Plus, I wasnt nearly experienced enough when I started it resulting in VERY BAD first iterations and a program structure that is overly complex, uneasy to read, unlogical and hard to extend on.
Thats why I did it so completely different with Mario. I worked on mario for only 3 weeks which produced the currently available download. You could see it as a first iteration, minus an acceptable level design :p

I come back after a few weeks of absence and this is what I find. DA is back and with a fresh new idea that will push the calc in ways I really haven't seen before, and if I have they weren't done correctly. Awesome news DA, glad to have you and this project here! :wink:
