A Brief Update

November 24, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Man it has been a while…  Games, moving, work, the list goes on, but I don’t really want to blame them for my lack of effort.  On that note, I have been getting back into XNA, and even have written an article for a new XNA site since Ziggy has been slacking in getting his site back up in working condition.  The article I have written is on the subject of simple animated sprites.  It goes thru step by step on making a simple animate sprite first with an image per frame, to a simple class that uses a sprite sheet.  You can read the article on Sgt. Conker’s website, which is entitled Simple 2D Animated Sprite.

I am in the process of writing a series of articles on how to create a simple 2D Platform game.  Each part of the series will be hosted on Sgt. Conker’s website, and the first one is in the works.  I won’t spoil any of the juicy details, you can read them when they are posted.

Along with the articles, it has given me a fresh inspiration on the DPB contest I have going with Zedox… Hopefully it will be completed in time for our deadline, and then Zedox can TMB!

I will be posting progress on both my DPB game and the article series in the near future.  Till then, peace out~
