GneuManager & Ogre are the clear victors in this race. I have been juggling a website that is nearing completion and release, so I have the pleasure of being able to free up some of my time and devote it to making those cool little videos to scraps of techno music that I have found lying around the webs.
Ogre and I have quite a few plans, and even more that I have yet to realize. The genres that I am interested in span from simulation to purely beautiful works of art to super fast FPS’s and so on, so I don’t think I am going to be type-casted any time soon. There are two games that I have been tossing around in the last week or so that may end up being the most interesting of any that I have played around with so far, but ill release them when time allows.
GneuManager is again coming to the forefront of my mind, as many people seem to be hitting my site when searching for it, on Google nonetheless. I have actually been more surprised than you probably are. The greatest thing to keep in mind is that this site that I’ve been working on is born of the GManager foundations, that is to say that I have built the Arcy site in the same manner that I had begun building GManager out of. I learned much from the applications of my concept that has lead to a better understanding of the concept, and will affect my GManager code base accordingly. I am beginning to believe, as Einstein always did, “there is always a simple solution to everything.” Abstraction seems to be a very good method of employing this quote.
I have also found new courage to publish my first post mortem/critique of the development teams and processes I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The average length of them is going to be 7 to 10 pages typed, detailing out the good and bad of each experience and trying to display what I have learned about these things. It looks like I am going to be moving in reverse chronological order, so WAW, BirthStar:Frontline, LazyDevs, White.
I’ve been pleasantly surprised with how things have gone so far, but I’m sure there is more to come. =) Cheers!
