So, I'm in Philly now and back to attending school full-time.
Just to quell some rumors from my last post real quick- I didn't come to Philly to work for Newgrounds, nor will I be. I came to Philly because I wanted to try out some big city life for a while, and due to mod meets and other events it's the city I'm most familiar with away from home. And hey, it never hurts to have a few friends in reach.
I've actually only had a chance to stop in to the office once so far, school has been keeping me pretty busy with important things like writing mindless research papers. Next semester should be better though.
I recently put out Type It II, a game I had mostly programmed and finished before arriving here in January. Unfortunately it seemed to flop a bit, but that happens. The typing game genre isn't exactly a hot one.
Other than that I've really just been devoting any of my free time to the impending afro-ninja.com site redesign. Progress is occurring steadily now but I will not say any words about a finish date, because we know how that goes.
The current site has lasted me for many years, and could continue to do so, but it's time to move on and upgrade. The new site is much more streamlined, sensical, organized, and efficient than the current one. It's also much more standards compliant, being written in xhtml strict. It's quite possibly one of the most important projects I've started to date, so I'm pretty excited to push through with it.
As for meetups this year, I'm probably gonna play it low key. I have a lot to get done right now and I'm at a big transitional point, so I don't want to feel like I'm spending money needlessly to fly around and party. Right now all I'm gonna commit to is comic-con, because it's hard to miss such a great meet up with other flash artists.
