XNA, Adver-games and other such distractions.

Hey guys,

Been over a week since I blogged... Doesn't feel like that long because ive been so busy but apparently it has. In that time ive had my entire room redecorated (took 2 days longer than it was meant to ¬_¬), began dabbling in a little XNA programming (Attempting to make a version of Webby) and continued work on what I hope will be my first ever adver-game.

For those who don't know what an adver-game is, its basically a game which is designed to advertise a product or service. Obviously a sponsored game advertises the site that sponsored it but in a more passive way (using splash screens and links), an adver-game on the other hand is much more active in advertising. It may use characters/objects in the game which are tied to the product being advertised for example.

Can't really say much more about what the game is about or who its for (its not a giant corporation before you get that idea haha), but like I said, if everything goes well it'll be my first ever adver-game.

  1. Usually those adver games are crap. Prove me wrong! :D

  2. XNA isn't too bad, but I don't like it that much, prefer using my own engine in C++.
