Happy Birthday

It’s been exactly one year since my very first post on this blog.

I’ve accomplished a ton since then.

I have learned Objective-C and some Cocoa. I have dabbled with The Allegro Game Framework but ultimately chose something else. I committed to competing in the 2005 Original Mac Games Cup which directly lead to developing and finally publishing my first game.

Not too shabby for doing most of this after “the day job”. Hopefully the second year will be as fruitful, if not more so.

Thanks for reading, commenting, and supporting me.

    Dude, that is so cool. That’s a lot for one year… don’t even want to look at what I did…

    Congrats!!! Keep it up!

    Thanks! I’ll do my best.

  3. […] Jon Trainer of Make Mac Games made a simple, yet very inspiring post about the progress that he has made in his first year of running his site. I really admire his self-initiative, which has led him to progress well in his game programming efforts, and most significantly, allowed him to publish his first game. A lot of game programmers (myself included!) have dabbled in game programming for substantial amounts of time, yet haven’t even completed, let alone published, a polished game. His post has been an unexpected wake up call for me, and I hope that it helps me make a similar report a year from now . […]
