I'm Robin. I'm an amateur game designer. I post game recommendations (mostly indie), my thoughts on goings-on in the industry, and progress updates on games I'm making. Also, occasional posts about science and whatnot. DFTBA.

Looking forward to playing The Witness, The Last Guardian, Dark Souls II, Watch Dogs, and the reboot of Thief.

Here’s what the name-entering screen for Meteors currently looks like. When you enter your three-character name in true arcade machine style, your name and score is added to the top 100 scores if it’s high enough. What happens in the background is a highscores file is updated so that your score is remembered after the game quits. Simple stuff really.
Handling all the high scores stuff is one of the last things I need to do to finish Meteors. The next step will be to create NES-era sound effects for the game, and music too. I’m currently thinking I’ll use songs from this 8-bit version of OK Computer because Radiohead.
