Whoo hoo!!!!

Too bad all my server-mates have shut down the server I was in.  I guess I have to stick with the Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions until they decide to play again.

Microsoft is gonna end us all.

Especially if they mess with Realms servers, like giving it an access fee.

Also it wasn't just Minecraft they sold, it was the whole company.

And the creator wrote a long story about the decision and it makes him look like a quitter. He was all like "I never wanted minecraft to be so popular, I just want to be a small time dev. If I ever make something else that catches spark, i'll drop it immediately."  Bah!

Competition eats you. Competition tears you apart. Notch never wanted that. But everyone loves 2.5 Billion USD so cant blame him too. :p

Trying to put my drawing skill to use.

A parallax'd map from my upcoming game The Sinners who Never Sinned.

people weren't kidding when they say one bad parallel process can utterly goof up everything. I didn't even think it was much going on until I realized how long it was taking map transfers to happen with even the simplest events.
I constantly go back and forth between kickstarter and indiegogo...one garners far more attention while the other is so much safer....
I just finished Variables I lesson! Urrah! I'll be publishing it soon. :smile:Captura de tela de 2022-01-24 23-58-42.png
