Santa vs the Evil Gnomes 1.0 release

At last my Christmas game is finished. Sure, I would have liked to do a few more passes but as always time is the enemy. I think the game is pretty good but I am biased. I have been thinking a lot about what I am going to do in 2010 and the best words to describe my plans are icing. I will be posting my plans for all 9 projects that make up the Blazing Games site on New Years Day. There are some big changes that are going to be happening which will hopefully turn out to be positive and result in being a much better site.

Plans altered

I was originally planning on releasing the final version of Santa vs the Evil Gnomes this week and releasing the Christmas Edition of Dungeon Romp 3D for Christmas but with the passing-away of my Grandmother and lack of time due to family being down my plans are being altered. While I am very tempted to delay Santa vs the Evil Gnomes until next year and add a lot more features, I have delayed the game enough as it is so it will be Dungeon Romp 3D Christmas Edition that gets delayed and Santa being released on Christmas Eve.

Santa vs the Evil Gnomes beta release

I was going to have the first two maps of the Santa vs the Evil Gnomes game, but as there is no save feature so players would have to replay the whole thing so I just left the first level in there. The full game, which I hope to finish this weekend, will have 3 maps. The story is not as good as I hoped due to time limitations and what could be done with the rpg/3D engine that I am using. That is why I was glad that most people who answered my poll voted for a longer release between games as that will allow me to make better games. I am also planning on enhancing some of my older games so if there is a particular game you like that you think deserves some enhancements email me (webmaster at blazinggames dot com works). There was only one vote for never updating the site. In the unlikely event that the person who made that vote is reading this, I would love to hear your reasoning.

A Cold Poll

My plans for this weeks site release were derailed when I came down with a cold. I usually don't get sick, at least not this bad, but I have been dieting which is probably not helping my immune system. I still have a lot of weight to lose, but I have made great progress this year. Still, my planned release for this week is not as far along as I would like so I am having a poll instead. After all, 2010 is closing in fast and I have to make my 2010 site plans so why not get a little help from people who actually visit Blazing Games?
