After rushing through most of Module 0 on Galvanize, I slowed down on the optional exercises towards the end. Most of my free time was (and still is) diverted to playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
After kicking myself in the butt, however, I finished the optional parts on Module 0 and am now about a third of the way through Module 1.
And although I know I don’t have any regular readers, my content has primarily been about writing in the past so–I should probably do some writing on the side while I’m focusing on learning to code. Need to hit up my writing buddies/acquaintances.
Well, so much for being a background actor (topic from my last post). Covid-19 stopped production for filming in Los Angeles, so I haven’t been doing any of that.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have a substantial amount of remote work to do from home, however, and I did a bit of writing while quarantined. Where I’m devoting most of my free time to, at the moment, is an attempt at indie game development.
I’m using RPG Maker MV which provides an engine and design tools, but I’m going out of my way to customize as much as I can.
The first thing I started doing was open up MS Paint to create my own tilesets, i.e., art that I feed into RPG Maker and, in turn, I can use it to design the levels and maps in my game. After the tilesets, I went on to making character sprites.
That’s where I am now. Sitting at my computer and learning to code.
