It's Been a while!

It's been a while since I have had time to post, and pretty much a general lack of interesting things to post. But I just thought I would post something and try to get back into the blogsphere, even though I was never really in it from the beginning.

I am still working hard on Java Game Programming. My most recent project is a Game Editor Tool for the purpose of creating games without needing to be a programmer. Hopefully I can get some screens out soon.

I also have many ideas for new posts here, they may be a bit longer than pervious ones and contain more complex code. I've wanted to handle a couple topics that are needed for creating games for a long time now. Some upcoming posts will include:
  • Abstract Collision Detection: Using Visitor Pattern
  • Particle Systems: Using the Flyweight Pattern

Eventually I hope to make a post on how to bring all the snippets I have posted together to make games. Any feedback as to your specific needs will help tremendously!

Thanks for reading!
