The Madness!

Posted in Uncategorized on August 19, 2009 by mindwavegames

This is my first post isn’t it?  Well, nice to meet you!  I’m Tom, and I’ll be letting you in on my adventures of amateur game-design. Game-design isn’t something I want to do professionally,  but it’s a very fascinating thing. It’s like sharing your imagination with people.

I love working in 3D, be it animated or stationary. I love adventure games “to a point where it’s just disgusting”.  Old Lucasarts games to be more specific. Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Sam and Max, that sort of thing. I grew up on those old text-based games. You know, where you gotta type in “GET BOTTLE” and “USE BOTTLE WITH SINK”. My first programming venture was a text-based game like that with simple visuals to keep the users from committing suicide when playing it.

I got this blog to ramble. Yes, ramble. Whether it be to myself or to you, the curious onlooker. Also, I have it as a place to show some of my work. Somewhere informal where I can throw things around as I please, much like a baboon. I doubt you, onlooker, will find something useful in the midst of all this. But if perchance you would like to gander at my works, ponder at my thoughts, and maybe even share a laugh or two*, welcome to my blog!

-Tom

*Laughs are not guaranteed to be shared.
