Renewal of Web Hosting and Domain Name Registration is rolling around once again, and I currently see little reason to bother with the expense and hassle. iterationGAMES.com has been around for many years now, mainly to keep my released game related work in one place, and to blog about what I have been working on.
With all the social media options now, ease of posting and spreading information of projects and releases, the point of maintaining this site seems moot.
I have been working with some simple transformations that produce complex structures in motion. I have an idea for a game with these undulating locations as the back drop,.
I am going to do a simple interface for finding interesting locations in the transforms to facilitate level points for the game itself,. could be useful for just exploring the geometry as well.
generating some midi with Abundant-Music then brought the score data into Sunvox. All the instruments start as unedited basic synths,. then I set up some sounds and added a few effects and some modulations based on offset LFOs (random-ish) and it seems I can generate some quite interesting music this way,.
Work continues,. slowly. It is summer time and it is waning quickly,. so we gotta take the sun while it is shining. Hence the lack or discernible progress, on game development.
Lots getting done actually, in the brief bits of sporadic work, only not easy to comment or show progress on systems that are still being organically devised.
Found an old Compaq Evo p4 desktop system (mono-core) headed to the dump,. rescued it, and installed Jeskola Buzz, the old XP version I know and lov. Nice to have that back for sound design and music production.
Also a Casio CZ-3000,. headed to the same fate, was rescued as well,. for future sound experiments. (not yet in my possession, being held elsewhere)
Found and installed Open Broadcaster Software today https://obsproject.com/ this will make videos easier to produce and we should see more here, including development logs, random experiments, and suchlike.
