I know, long time no post! On it 😉
So last night’s Flash In The Peg was awesome. There was a great turnout – more folks than I’ve seen in a while. And it served as a great teaser for a main Flash event coming up in the city too. The theme was AS3 game libraries. Specifically featuring Flixel and FlashPunk. The upcoming event is The Room Jam! Room Jam is a one day event where folks come in and create a ‘one room game’ according to a provided base template. At the end of it each game will be connected together by their ‘doors’ to make one big game! Simple games, one day development, be as creative as you want or can. Definitely worth hyping up.
However, the focus on Flash gaming was not the highlight of the night for me. Close, but not quite. Devin made a nice call when he pointed me to this link. AxeCop.com. Axe Cop is a great on-line comic with the artistic talent of 29-year-old Ethan Nicolle, and plotted by his 5-year-old brother Malachai. Great kid mind with great art style, cops, axes, giant robots and unicorn babies make for a great combo. Check it out!
