Developer spent 13 years making his childhood game
Adam Butcher spent 13 years making a video game that he envisioned at the age of 14. His game is called Tobias and the Dark Sceptres. via gamasutra:
When Adam Butcher was 14 years old, he had a vision for a video game that he wanted to make. It was a little bulky in scope, sure, but it was the game he wanted to play, and he had the tools to make it.
So began the development of Tobias and the Dark Sceptres, a game that, 13 years later, is finally complete. Butcher has spent nearly half of his life adding bits and bobs to this epic saga, and at the age of 27, he’s finally done.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
