My apologies for those that follow this blog, but I am currently busy with another aspect of 3D Visualisation at www.visualbuilding.co.uk. Hope to continue here in a month or 2.
Today was planned to be the first day that I can devote to Hexworld again since mid July. The last 2 months have been hectic with a constant stream of visitors, and visits to Switzerland and Russia. Of course I could not work amongst all the traffic and so had to devote my time to some “game testing” (Bad Company, Civilization Revolution and Ruse). However I note that the XNA 4 RTM is available within a few days, and I think it would be better to reboot myself into the latest tool. I also have taken some time out looking at Windows Phone 7 and iPhone development but forced myself to concentrate on completing the XBox project first.
It was encouraging to see that XBox Live Arcade game Castle Crashers has now sold 1,854,000 units. This is an average game achieveable by someone with reasonable graphics and programming ability. Yet Toy Soldiers achieved only 329,000 units- strange. Onwards, best get started before Civ 5 is released……..
