Projects

I’m starting a new “Projects” category for my blog. It’ll contain posts related to personal projects that I am working on.

First project to mention:
Tetris!

That’s right, I’ve decided to tackle a personal programming “unicorn” of mine, and attempt to put together a clone of the classic block-based puzzle game. When first getting into programming games, there were a couple times that I began throwing a Tetris clone together, but I could never quite finish it. I would get caught up with something like matrix rotation or handling the rows in the play grid.
I think I’ve finally gotten to a point where I can handle the problems I previously stumbled upon.
I’ll be using XNA for this project as it’s a solid framework with an easy to understand graphics system and many helpful libraries… plus, I haven’t gotten enough of a grip on DirectX yet! (That will be for version 2… ^_^ )

I’ll post the project on the “Projects/XNA” section of my site when it’s complete, and I’ll post status updates here when I can.

Stay tuned…
