Hey, if Superman can return – why not me?

Okay so I haven’t been doing anything nearly as cool as flying through space to visit the distant remains of my dead home planet in the hopes of finding others of my kind, but… whatever. It’s been a Lazy Summer for me so far, so sue me for enjoying it. No Batman show, no summer camp counseling… for the first time in 3 years I get a summer were I don’t work more than… oohh… 15 hours a week? At most?

Yes well I can only sit idle for so long before I go insane, so here I am once again looking to get busy busy busy.

For starters, I’m looking for a second programmer to assist me in finishing up Galaxy Conquest and sticking around for work on other titles. Proficiency in mathematics is key here in order to make up for the void in my brain that would have normally dealt with mathematics higher than algebra. I’m also looking for a fellow hobbyist. It’s become clearer and clearer to me that I’m not going to become a game developer of any serious capacity, in other words sustain myself completely on game development, so I don’t want to pull in someone who expects any sort of big payoff. Will Galaxy Conquest make money? I’m positive it will. A lot of money? Well, the term “a lot” can be relative but in this case I think it’s a universal “not much”. However it’s also a case of “a little is better than nothing”. If anyone reading this is interested or knows someone who may be, drop me a line. Knowledge of Torque Game Builder (and hence, TorqueScript) are also requirements.

Next up we have the Game Institute Live Seminars program launching (finally) this week. We were supposed to launch at the beginning of the month but it would be my luck that the cable line to my house goes bad just then and it takes Comcast almost two weeks to replace it. For anyone who remembers in previous entries I’ve hinted at working on something for GI, and this is it. I’ll be making an official announcement over in the GI forums on Monday so if you’re registered or enrolled there keep your eyes peeled.

Then of course there’s our beloved GDnet. I’m looking to head up a team in charge of refurbishing the Articles and Resources section. Quite the task, considering we have very close to 2000 articles, some of which are outdated, some of which are broken links, etc. There’s also the newsletter, which I want to try and reformat – the HTML edition anyways.

Other than that (not to mention other numerous small side projects many of which I’ll start but not finish – well, not over the summer anyways) it’s pretty much kickin back, watching some Stargate, lazing about, watching some more Stargate, going on weekend trips, hanging out, partying, watching even more Stargate, and enjoying an easy summer.

I’ll be in touch.
