Happy winter holidays and let all your wishes come through in 2015. Since we haven't seen any snow around here this winter and we had hardly any snow last winter, this frosted decorations will have to do. Visit the gallery for a bigger, unaltered image.
Happy 2014 with a traditional little kitchy photo.
I started development of a new android game currently named Spectral Annihilation. Nothing much is known about it yet, except that it started as brain-teasing hybrid of color tetris and ordinary tetris without the falling bit and that the soundtrack will be made by my favorite composer Aziraphal. Here's a screenshot of the current demo, the final game may look and feel utterly different.
A full-frame camera like the Nikon D600 requires good glass to really shine. The incredibly cheap Samyang AE 14mm ED AS IF UMC lens received great praise in reviews and after getting one myself I totally agree with them. It instantly became one of my favorite lenses.
FDF's Minefield Adventure for Android has been in development for a long time now. It's about as feature-complete as it's gonna get now, it only requires some final touches, but those often prove to be the hardest. Of course, the game is getting it's own page around here real soon too, with everyhing from instructions to gameplay videos to tips&tricks. Stay tuned for details. You can even contact me through the contact form if you want to beta-test it.
The exhibit is back online now. The design still requires some attention though. The gallery shall return in a day or two too, but it unfortunately won't be embedded with the rest of the site as the otherwise awesome new version of Gallery (3) can't be embedded yet. The author apologizes for the inconvenience.
A friend of mine just released his awesome snake game on Google Play (ex Android Market). It's got huge playing fields and nice retro graphics. The snake moves around with incredible smoothness. This is a must for all snake lovers out there and something great to pass your time by when you're waiting for something and only got your phone with you. And I should know it's great, I've been the lead Quality Assurance and a Consultant on this one, at least according to the credits.
In the last 10 days I tried adding a new photo from my extensive collection to the photo exhibit every single day. And, surprise, surprise, I did accomplish that on all of those 10 days.
And from now on, at least one new photo shall be added to the exhibit every single day, except, of course, on the days when I won't be able to get to a computer, but I might compensate for that.
I hope you'll enjoy seeing them all.
A new version of Mine Explorer is in the making. This time the platform is Android so the entire game is being redesigned from scratch, including the graphics. I might not end up calling it Mine Explorer.
Stay tuned for more info as the development continues.
So our insignificant little planet completed another turn around its insignificant little G-type star in an insignificant spiral arm of an insignificant little galaxy in an insignificant little cluster of galaxies in a humongous universe? Why should we care? Oh, you can get chocolate from people for free just because of it? In that case, I wish you a very chocolatey new year.
