This is a now page, where I list the things I'm focusing on.
A thing, every day
I'm doing a creative exercise where I make something every day, even if it's just a bad 5-minute sketch. That page has a better description of what I'm trying to achieve. In short, it's mostly to practice finishing things.
I bought a guitar, which has helped me get somewhat unstuck. Right now I'm learning and practicing, with the intention to eventually start up a music project I've had in the back of my mind for a while.
Developing a game
An early prototype is here (desktop only), and the final build will go on itch.io. It's one of those Sokoban-type puzzle things with a cloning mechanic.
Progress has been slow, but the plan is to release it this year with a few levels.
I'm making an x86_64 microkernel just because. It's been equal parts fun and frustrating, and somehow I've reached userland without it totally imploding yet.
If I can get to the point of a working shell, I'll add a link to one of those preloaded in-browser VMs here.
A few projects are on hold right now.
- The Beat Machine. The most recent batch of updates felt good. I'm taking a short break before the next few.
- Gifsync gets its own entry again! Now that the web side of things has been reworked, I want to explore the idea more.
- vdcrpt is more or less a complete proof-of-concept. The next thing I want to do is make it feel refined, with a better UI and workflow. That's going to require a lot of planning that I'm not ready for yet.
There are also a few that I don't anticipate returning to.
- Stockpile, my old Minecraft mod. I made a lot of mistakes working on this project, and while I learned from them, it's just not fun anymore.
