Hey hey kiddies.
A fellow flash dev here in the 3rd sense office (the wonderful Oliver Joyce of the Swords and Sandals series) started his first step in to the big bad (and painfully glorious) world of ActionScript 3.
And it got me thinking that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to take the same step that I had long been putting off due to the seemingly overwhelming complexity of AS3, and my lack of spare time to dedicate to relearning 6 years worth of coding knowledge.
Thus I took the opportunity to benefit from his "cultural learnings" and forward steps he was taking by also putting myself through the same painful relearning process...
And 3 weeks later, here I am with my first AS3 game and most Michael Bay-esque title to date! The game is as yet untitled and I expect that we will be releasing it on Fizzy and eventually Newgrounds in about a week.
Now that I've taken that first step in to a brave new AS3 world, I can get back to finishing off Exmortis 3, which I can announce will release in August 2009... (pending disaster)
