About

In a few words, my name is Diego Doumecq, I’m a javascript dev and a game designer at heart.

This is a blog I created with the intention of sharing my thoughts on game design and then kind of transformed into a blog where I talk about any interesting topic that crosses my view. Thankfully it still is mostly about game design so at least I can say I’ve been constantly writting about the same thing for 6 years now, which is nice.

I’ve made a few games in the past using mostly Game Maker and one using Flixel (As3 + flex) but none of them are interesting enough because of two reasons:

  1. They were only stepping stones to get where I am right now.
  2. They’re not any good.

If you want to be horrified at my lack of perspective, raging fanboyism and pure hatred for things that don’t really matter then please do check the archive and rejoice at my incredible ability to convey such things through a second language. Marvelous stuff.

  1. Hi,

    I run a small independent games company called Metal Beetle Ltd. We’re currently developing a game called “Space Exploration: Serpens Sector”. Since you run a games website, I thought you might be interested in hearing about the game.

    SE:SS is a role-playing game based on classics like Starflight and Star Control. You are tasked with exploring the mysterious Serpens Sector after a long period of human absence. Each game has a different map and a different set of encounters, drawn from a large list. The base game will be free, and a purchasable expansion will add further encounters for those who enjoy the game and want to see more.

    The game runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

    We’ve just released a development preview version of it. The purpose of this development preview is both to generate interest in the game, and to get feedback from the public at a comparatively early stage in the development process. You can download the preview from http://www.metalbeetle.com/spaceexploration/download.php . Note that it’s still a “pre-alpha” version, and is not feature-complete or particularly polished!

    Regards,

    – David Stark

    I’ll give it a look 😉

    I was going to say that these kind of personal messages would be more appropiate if you made them by email…. then I remembered that I didn’t have any contact info anywhere on the blog.

    Oooops, well, now it’s here in the about page, where it should be.
