Kitten Game Reboot in Java...
Sun Aug 6, 2017 1:51am

Rebooted the last Millennium Crisis reboot (the one with the kitten assets) in Java this time. I went Java because it could be cross platform compatible and its easy to be productive quickly. Also, through my job I have a license for the full blown Intellij IDE which is actually really nice and almost rivals Visual Studio. C# would have been my second choice but it's not cross platform if you exclude Mono and .NET core. C++ would have been my go to but I wanted to use something besides SDL this time.

So far it's still moving... usually I fall off the project band wagon by now. I currently have no idea for a story or how it's really going to work. I'm thinking action/rpg style but not as grandiose as a real rpg. More action with rpg elements to it. Kitten and yarn ball assets might be permanent? Don't know yet. Originally I did want zombies and such but kittens are cool too. Could make a completely goofy story based on them and any absurdity that ensues wouldn't be so out of place.

I'm sort of rambling at this point.

Updates and some screenshots are on the latest update on the website's news page. There's a link to my GitHub. No guarantee whatever I currently have committed will actually compile but I have the latest compiled jar being comm itted each time (usually a no-no) under the out/artifacts/zombieAttack_jar directory.

      Could provide some story inspiration. Or at least several hours worth of distraction when your current inspiration stalls.
      • Hmm. I think I like that idea... Erik_, Sun Aug 20 2:19am
        Could lead to some pretty off the wall situations. I think I should go back and review them. I don't think I've actually really read through them in the past 10 years.

          Still funny and weird, but the NEMB saga 2 didn't really go all that well.
          • They're sort of like the Wry series...Erik_, Mon Aug 21 12:53pm
            One went well and was fun, two was finished but not that great, three kept trying to happen but it never did. :)
            • We could start it nowPuckdropper, Mon Aug 21 8:02pm
              but it's kinda you, me, and Retna. I haven't heard from benny in years and who knows what happened to wendy. JMB's one time girlfriend, Diamond, came and went but I don't think she played a part in... more
              • make a new saga work. At this point, I'm not even really sure how to attract new people to swing by here.
                • Hm... we could sign up on OK CupidPuckdropper, Wed Aug 23 1:25am
                  Then be all like, Shamrice, technology, random nonsense! Ask for more details. Not sure I'd want random people joining in trying to do another NEMB Saga... They have to be bathed in the essence of... more
                  • Find another similar style site and try to recruit their users over here. I'm not sure how many are left these days though. Sometimes I wish GeoCities never completely closed down.
                    • I haven't seen a status update from Joe in yearsPuckdropper, Tue Aug 29 3:09am
                      I can't say I've got too many of the programmer type friends around here... They're all hockey players or model railroaders. That'd be easiest... Hey so and so, look at this crazy stuff we've posted. ... more
                      • Yeah me either...Erik, Thu Aug 31 5:53pm
                        I noticed that even Uncreative Labs has been crazy silent as of late as well. (I feel like it was more active not that long ago).
                        • It really didn't survive the reboot...Puckdropper, Fri Sep 1 3:16am
                          I'm probably the only person who checks it every now and again.
                          • Reboot?Erik, Sat Sep 2 3:29am
                            It looks like the same page to me? I still swing by every few months just to see if anything interesting has happened but it's been really quiet. My XTs are at my GFs parent's house so I don't... more
                            • It's pretty much the samePuckdropper, Sun Sep 3 5:06am
                              All the users left. When Stephen and Peter gave up on the site, we tried to rebuild it in its original image but it was too late. It would have died if it wasn't piggybacked on my hosting.
