San Diego Update 2004-03-25 02:41:16 Reply

Tomorrow is the two-week mark for my stay in San Diego - only one more week to go before I can return to Philly and see my cats! Alien Hominid console development has been going great - I'm so excited about how well this game is shaping up, it's just 100% pure fun to play! It isn't always 100% pure fun to code, though.... My eyes are killing me. This is definitely the biggest undertaking I will have achieved in my life up to this point, and that says a lot I think. Hopefully the final product will serve as inspiration for all the aspiring programmers here on the site!

We were tinkering around with the idea of bringing a devkit to a local video game retailer and showing off AH to the public before it is finished. Just out of curiosity - who here is in the San Diego area and would show up for that sort of thing? Also, do you like Bassam as much as I do?


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I can't wait when AH is coming out! You talk alot about it, so it must be great!

Do you already have a release date? And yes, I like Bassam also...

Sounds good Tom. Any idea when it'll be done and we can finally get a glimpse of it? Also, just a question about when it gets released. What stores are you planning to sell it in? And for the love of God, please tell me you're going to sell it in Canada. I really don't want to have to drive to Niagara Falls/Buffalo to buy the game.

Thanks for the demo Tom. It's tons of fun. Now get back to Philly before they start filming The Real World and Bedn takes the spotlight.

Hell yeah I'd show up for that. I'm in Oceanside, dude, about 15 minutes north of San Diego. Where are you staying?

Keep up the good work.

of course thats saying alot. this is a huge moment in your life thats almost completed. and the work that you have put into this will definately show in the final product. i, for one, am proud of you for doing this, and i hope you keep up the hard work and determination that goes into doing something that takes this much effort

just when this game makes you famous, you better not forget about the N.G members that were with you the whole way!

and pictures of said cats are forthcoming? (and I don't mean that huge one that was posted weeks ago).

And AH can only come out when I have money.. .or I shall whine girlishly (seeing as I'm a girl this wont be nearly as annoying as it could be... but still.. be afraid).

Which would be tomorrow, the day after that and the day you bought the slim jims and the ring pop, and the day you paid a homeless man to sing show tunes for you.

Can't wait for AH! I'm sure its gonna be a cult classic, if not a mainstream blockbuster.

How can ron give them money if it comes out when he has no money? Maybe Tom can give us a discount since we're all fans of his site and he should give it to me for free because of the event that took last night. >=(
