I just made another…I don’t know what’s happening to me.
I spent a good amount of time today Twitter-stalking what I imagine to be a secret society of gif makers, but in reality is probably just a few people who know each other (I’m not willing to completely throw out the secret society idea though). I am currently going through a phase in which I like making things flash lots of colors. True “animation” is still beyond me, but maybe that will change sometime soon.
Today seems to be the last day of work on Spaceratops, which is a quite welcome thought. I’ve been working on this project for far too long, and it’s time for somebody to play it. Namely, you. I’ve decided that once it’s up, I will buy lunch for the first person who finishes all fifty waves. It’s pretty hard (actually even though I’m the one who made it (I can “see the matrix, if you will), I still haven’t gotten to the end), so it might take a little while. But you can do it, I know you can. Very soon. If not tomorrow, then it will be linked to by Monday. Playable in your very own browser. I know, contain yourself. I can’t wait either.
I also took some quite nasty spills at the chelsea skatepark this afternoon, as I was feeling particularly bold and attempted a lot of stuff that I hadn’t before. Specifically, jumping off of ramps and dropping onto them from above, both of which caused me some degree of pants-rippery and knee-skinning. I did, however, eventually succeed in the landing on the ramp part, so now I’m tentatively capable of jumping onto the small box from the ramp, riding it, and then dropping onto the ramp on the other side. I think the box is about a foot, maybe 18 inches tall. So this is an improvement. Of course, it didn’t come without some bruises.
