That little break lasted longer than I’d meant it to.
Well, no matter.
I’ve resumed working on Major Arcana. Right now, my plan is to have the full demo out by the end of this month. I should know at that point if the game has enough potential to justify my working on it any longer.
I’ll write more about my actual plans next week: this is just an announcement, really. For your information, and all that.
Oh, by the way – did you know there’s a forum on this site? It won’t be there for much longer – when I was setting up this website initially, I had the bright idea that I’d use a copy of PHPBB as the backend for the site, and edit some posts when I wanted to change the pages. Sorta like what Abstract Productions used to have set up.
Well, it basically works (I update the summary on the frontpage by editing a post in the forums), but I think it’s probably not an ideal way to handle things. I could probably do something similar and better with wordpress, but I haven’t been able to get it to work yet. Basically, I’ll looking for a magic piece of PHP code that’ll let me grab the body of a post and print it out into the index file. Check out this thread I posted on the wordpress support forums to see how far I got – if you’ve got any ideas on what to do, let me know, because I think I’m very close to a solution…
