Pixel Spaceships Are Back!

Posted in games, life, software at 10:40 pm by the2bears

A long time ago I used Dave Bollinger‘s Pixel Spaceships (yay Wayback Machine!) idea a lot for game sprites. Dave’s site has sadly disappeared from the internet, but I spent a few days re-writing my old Pixel Ship generator code in… Clojure 🙂

I’ve spent a fair amount of time recently testing out some new (for me) languages. Clojure, Scala, and Go. It’s very refreshing teaching my brain to think in new ways. I allowed myself to get in a bit of a rut, and I lost some of my passion for programming in the process. It’s nice to find it again.

    Awesome news!

    It is indeed very refreshing to learn languages that depart from what you are used to. Helps you come up with new approachines in languages you already know for sure!
