I have a long term goal of writing a video game. But as I write this in March of 2019 I would consider my programming knowledge very much “barely existing”. I mean by own standards that’s what I would consider it.
Since then I started a NodeJS course. I actually started it then paused a bit to try and learn Jekyll properly. I had this whole other plan involving my own site and hosting etc. But that was taking too long so I have put the Jekyll thing on the back burner, setup this free wordpress account to host my content instead and would like to go back to learning NodeJS. Except while I had the course on pause the author revved the course version to v3 which reset my progress. Not that big of a deal since I hadn’t made it that far. But I feel like I have re-watch the videos to make sure I get any changes that have happened between course and node versions.
I actually have something of a brain storm document I started a while back on the game itself. I don’t feel like publishing that or going into detail on the game quite yet.
As a goal I would like to successfully write some smaller games and get a lot more programming practice under my belt before I even think about publishing details.
I can only hope when I post a blog entry in 12 months it will contain something about a prototype for a game and how much better and programming I have become.
