Nearly eight years ago I made my first Flash game - the Great Burger Builder. It was programmed with the no longer supported Actionscript 1 and has a host of flaws. Yet it still runs and it still continues to be popular. I think it's high time to return to the restaurant and do the job right. The original Actionscript 1 code does not translate to the current Actionscript 3 format, so I'm pretty much rebuilding the game from scratch. I'm taking advantage of the opportunity to introduce some new variations to the original game. I think you'll like the results. More as this develops.

Nearly two decades ago, Broderbund made waves with their "Living Books" - children's stories that took advantage of a new medium (CD storage) to create a whole new kind of interactiv
ent. But suddenly someone painstakin
gly recreates a pop-up book with all of the cams and sliders of the real world counterpar
t and it's like the Living Books never existed. I'm really surprised that no one realized this could be done before. Give me a contract, I'll make you a bucketful of them.Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
Hi folks. Yesterday I posted a new game called "The Walking Dog
," an obvious reference to the popular AMC TV series, "The Walking Dead." The idea came to me, as these ideas often do, while I was out walking the dog. Somehow I made the connection to The Walking Dead and started thinking about how the tugging and pulling and frequent stops could be converted into game play. It didn't take me long to put a working prototype together and much longer to create the art and animation. It was a fun and informative process. I hope you agree.

News flash! SyFy channel (formerly Sci Fi) is going to expand their media forays from broadcasti
ng and books to actual movies! Actually, what will really be news is if they actually decide to make one worth watching. One can only bear so much of the "rubber monster" disasters that these folks have been flooding the airwaves with.Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
This might be considered ironic. Brenda Starr has become an anachronis
m, much like the hard-hitti
ng reporter she played in her daily comic. It's sad to see yet another mainstay of newspapers to fold up their tent and head home, but it's clear that, at least for aspiring cartoonist
s, newspapers are no longer a viable medium.Read the Article at HuffingtonPost
