Unnecessary tautology.

Hey, look, progress!
 
It's been a while, hasn't it?

I've been looking for a full time job recently, for a few different reasons. But in the meantime, I'm trying to finish up a few things for another release of the game. The last few days, I've been focusing on getting information about the city to be visible in the game, and this is the result. Among other things, the city blocks have shrunk in size, and it's a bit more obvious which ones are for sale when you're on the city screen.

Additionally, once you start building your tower, people from nearby city blocks will start to visit. The lines that converge on the empty lot are a result of that information being displayed.

Playing around a bit with HTML5 Canvas and some fairly simple procedural generation. Because I can.

Just finished watching An Adventure in Space and Time. It's effectively a story about William Hartnell. And it is a damn good story.

Story

Web developer moonlighting as game developer
Introduction
I'm a web developer who loves to make games.  Currently developing IsoTower, an Isometric Sim Tower style game, and Validmon, a game that pits websites against each other in battles to the death.  Sometimes I go by the name "thedaian" on the internet.

I tend to be sarcastic, and use comedy to help deal with my extreme loneliness, especially on the internet.

I run a local game developer group, so if you're in Columbus OH, and interested in game development, stop by sometime.  If you're not in Ohio, then I'm sorry you had to read that (on the other hand, congratulations on not being in Ohio).

I like science fiction and books (and often combine the two).  Sometimes, I watch movies and TV shows, and play video games.
