I’ve been enjoying my month away from free time game development to actually spend some time playing video games. Rather than the usual pixel-heavy indie stuff I typically consume, I’ve been sinking a lot of time into online multiplayer games such as The Division, Unreal Tournament, DOOM, Quake Live… and just the other day it was brought to my attention that the announcement of Quake Champions is not too dissimilar to something I said I wanted from DOOM, to quote myself; “I’m so disappointed that id Software didn’t go the Quake 3 route, with a “id Software All Stars” of sorts, with your Ranger, Doom Marine, Sarge, Orb, etc.“.
Looks like I’ll be getting it!

After my month away from development I’m ready to get that the Alpha ready for testing. I’ll be sending test versions out to my inner circle in the next couple of days. Expect Jack B. Nimble news to ramp up again in the coming weeks.
I’m continuing to improve this website by making small, but useful alterations to the format in order to make it more readable. I’ll be updating the project pages in the coming weeks, it’s just that they’re content heavy and the formatting is taking some time. You can also now also contact me!
I had only heard third-hand information about Google Cardboard and had assumed that it was locked to Android devices. But after hearing that Google Cardboard was an option for iPhones, I picked one up.
The Google Cardboard is definitely entry level VR, but it is also low cost and doesn’t require a great amount of setup. The software is lacking right now and the experience isn’t perfect, but it does gives you a rough idea of the potential and limitations of the medium. I might play around with it enough to create something. Maybe. We’ll see…
Until next update, have a good one!
