About sink_t

A programmer who believes that engineering hardware is more ennobling than writing software. On top of that, believes computer science and IT to be a relatively useless perversion of the mind that is unhealthily fun to engage in.

A status post of slight irritation.

I thought I would be able to prevent myself from status posting from posting that “I’m in”, but I found that I could not resist the urge to finally say something after programming nearly 3 years in seclusion and silence, my work never being seen by anyone other than me.

My greatest hope for my first LD is that it will finally motivate me to finish something, which I know well is nearly undoable in 90% of my projects. I really want to escape the creeping featuritis demon that has been plaguing me in all of my current game projects, and perhaps a deadline will finally give me the kick in the bum that I need.

Anyways, my tools shall be:

  • HTML5, JavaScript and Canvas2Dbuild your future today!
  • Pixi.js – if I happen to decide on building a platformer.
  • Notepad++ (Windows) / jEdit – I’m a noob who hates vim and is too bothered to learn the 40-year history of Emacs.

Meanwhile, I am battling my hatred of using the equals sign in the role of the assignment operator.
