Well, another year has come to an end, and 2015 is almost upon us (only some 45 minutes for me). Still, despite being almost halfway through the decade, many of us, including yours truly, still refer to the 1990’s as ‘ten years ago’. Admit it, you do. So, to celebrate the advent of the mid-decade point annd to make you and myself feel ancient, here’s a list of some of the major events that happened in 1994 – twenty years ago.

Ooh, another update so soon? Exciting! Okay, not quite that exciting. This update brings mostly bugfixes and slight changes in the gameplay and graphics. Continue reading CS2D 0.1.2.5 Released
[:en]This tutorial will walk you through creating a simple CS2D script that creates explosions at the player’s cursor when they left-click. The script is not very useful in itself, but it will demonstrate how to query clients for data. Continue reading CS2D Lua: Mouse Pointer Explosions
Enter the first update of the year. Version 0.1.2.4 offers plenty of fixes, security upgrades and a very interesting feature. Can you guess what it is? Continue reading CS2D 0.1.2.4 Released
This update is mostly maintenance and bug fixes; the networking code has been further improved, and the game is generally more stable. The Android version has also been worked on – the mobile client is now capable of basic integration with the server, and it is treated as simply another player for seamless cross-platform gameplay.
However, this update brings different news. As much as it displeases me to say this, I am delaying the development of Cosmic Frontiers indefinitely due to a number of reasons and concentrating on other projects, such as WebTutor and other private work. Working on the game was a wonderful experience, and I fully intend to return to it – at a later date, perhaps adapting existing code to a different engine and language altogether.
Until that date, Cosmic Frontiers development is frozen.
[:en]Having taken a break from CS2D, I’m finally doing some things for the Web. And what better to practice your web development skills on if not an online education platform? Continue reading WebTutor – Online Education
So I don’t have much to do this Christmas Eve, which is why I’ll be doing a livestream! I honestly don’t know what games I’ll be playing, so I’m taking suggestions, and I’ll still be taking them during the stream – if you find it starts being particularly boring you can always suggest a game that you’d like to see played. The stream will be happening on my Twitch channel. See you this evening!
