Jetlag boy....

Yep, I've come up with a new super hero: Jetlag boy!!

As you may have guessed, I'm still too jet lagged to do anything, I was fine for most of today, and then once my bum hit the seat, my eye's closed and then it was 2 hours later! doh!

I was at the new Edinburgh International Games Festival today as I was taking part in a panel on getting into games. I've done this the last 3 years now and its pretty good fun even if its not very busy. I also went to have a look at the Dare to be Digial entry's which were on display and open to the public this year, and as usualy, they look pretty good for 10 weeks work. Some were of a very high standard, and some were struggling, which is normal. 10 weeks is a very short timeframe to do what they are trying, so they all do well getting anything done at all!

Anyway, I hope to be back to fighting ways as I'm back to work properly tomorrow, and then back to doing stuff at night as well; I hope.

I've been thinking more and more about making XeO3 a pretend cartridge game (that is, a self booting MMC/SD game). So that when you buy an MMC card reader, you also get XeO3 for it. This makes life interesting as theres no disk involved, and I have fast storage available.....but.... another part of me doesn't like that because not everyone plays on a real plus/4 which shrinks the market somewhat.

But, even if I do a normal version, I can still see me doing a special MMC version as well - for the C64 too, as it's just cool :)

I really hope XeO3 would be available for both the supports, but based on the worse one: the MMC innovative distribution won't loose in innovative thrust anyway.

Isn't Jetlag Boy one of XeO3 level bosses - the one which causes every joystick action take effect several frames after actually done? ;)
