Chrome-8 v 8.6 soon to be released

Thursday, January 13th, 2011

Notable new feature is integration with Apple’s Game Center. Chrome-8 still works with OpenFeint, though. However, I find OpenFeint sluggish, in particular during the login/approval process. Will hopefully improve with future OpenFeint releases.

New Contract

Monday, June 7th, 2010

Back working on a contract developing a remote control app. Since it’s proprietary stuff there’s no competition to be inspired by. I have checked other remote control apps though. Available GUI do not impress me. Hope I can design something better.

Actually, I’m not doing the communication level, only the GUI and application logic.

Will report when the app goes official.


Why develop games?

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

I’ve worked with business to business since I left university. Why do I now develop games? One reason is that I share the not very controversial opinion that playing games is a great way of learning.

For twenty odd years my company has been communicating benefits of Formal Verification. Let’s see if there are any lessons here, useful to the marketing of my game Chrome-8. The puzzle generator for Chrome-8 is a trivial application in comparison to the endlessly complex, real world applications of Formal Verification accomplishing great business (and society!) benefits. They both, however, share some of the basic techniques.

I’ll come back to this subject shortly.
