The Big Transition

I've been looking for a new username for about a month now - let's face it, Epicfish is pretty lame. I've been to a few username-generator sites and pressed that "Generate new username" button many times, and finally found something I liked. I googled the word and nobody else has used this username, nor does a site exist with this username as its domain.

Therefore, it's safe to say that I have a unique username now. What is it, you might ask? Well, here goes:


Ok, so that looks like a bunch of randomly generated letters that make no sense at all? You're absolutely correct! Ok, whatever, it's not that fantastic but at least it looks cool.

So, I've got my username, that was the easy part. Now I have to change all the accounts I own to this username, and that's going to take some serious sucking up to the administrators of all the forums and stuff I have joined thus far...

How to Get Blog Traffic in 3 Easy Steps

1. Create a blog post explaining how to get blog traffic. That way, when other bloggers want to get traffic on their own blogs, then they will come to your blog and like the post so much that they will keep coming back. Voila, free traffic.

2. Mention the word "beeg" in your posts. It's a proven fact that this will massively increase blog traffic, at least for Koreans.

3. Actually consider making useful posts. If you do this, you're more likely to gain loyal visitors that will keep coming back.

I think I will stick with steps 1 and 2 for the time being.

The Ultimate Social Network

I've been pondering lately - if Facebook, Twitter and Google+ were to combine, effectively creating "the ultimate social network", what would it be called?

I would definitely call it FaceTwit+, or maybe GoogleTwitFace. Even TwitFace+ would make my day...

Any ideas of what you would call it? :P

Save the Spoon

Today I did a whole lot of work on Save the Spoon - all without touching my computer.

I decided I would spend the day pretty much planning out the game from start to finish. I designed a lot of levels and built the story. I might upload some pictures but for now I'm keeping this stuff fairly secret :3

Stay tuned! :D

Indie Function FTW!

I've just become a member of the Indie(Function) forum. It's pretty damn cool :P

The forum is like a massively-small-scale version of the Game Maker Community (which has thousands of members), with just 40 or so people joined :)

Achievement get!

I just dropped in to see how this blog is going, and I looked down the bottom - 192 views!

Ok, it's not much, but seriously, last time I checked it was only about 100, most of which were from me.

What's even more interesting is the fact that I've still managed to keep people "entertained" enough to keep coming back (well, sort of), even though my blog posts are usually incredibly short.

I mean seriously, have a look at the last few posts :P

Meme vs Emoticon

Is it just me, or does the ":verymad:" emoticon on the GMC look like the "No" (Rage Face) meme? Compare:

Save the Spoon Update

I added a small update to Save the Spoon today. The following things were changed:

  • Added clouds

  • Added evil cheese :D

  • Updated the tileset

  • Added a lock that can be unlocked using the key.

  • Moved the key to underneath where you normally walk (see for yourself)

  • Made a whole level to play. More will come soon ^_^

The game can be downloaded here.

New song :D

I think my, er, zero loyal followers would like to listen to my latest song :D

You care, right?

I'm going to post this as if you actually give a damn, but the friend I mentioned earlier just made another song, this time with no help from me...

Food Tech.mp3


I just started back at school and I'm not sure if I will be able to continue making music anytime soon... >_<

I guess I'll have to close the topic on weekdays if I have too much stuff to do *______*

First Songs

The other day I introduced my friend to the composing software I use. This is his first song, he made it but I told him how to select instruments etc which I had to learn for myself.

Hole in the Pipe.mp3

Later that day I decided to try and find The first song that I ever made. Here it is (it was originally a wave file but I converted it to mp3 for size reasons):

Dark Dungeon.mp3

Giant Lizards Ate My Sandwich

I made this song for a request, but it sounds a bit weird... Tell me what you think:

Giant Lizards Ate My Sandwich

Save the Spoon

I just started making a platformer where you are a fork that has to save your friend (a spoon) from an evil knife! It's obviously nowhere near done yet, but here's a demo:

Save the Spoon.exe


I just added a link to this blog to this topic at the GMC, and now I've got 17 pageviews in 15 minutes :D

Music Packs Project

I thought I was almost finished with the first pack, and then I realised that I had only done 4 tracks! Gargh!

I should be able to finish another 6 soon enough though... Stay tuned #_#

Surprise Me!

I just clicked the "Surprise Me" button on Wikihow, and this came up o___o


Lovely necklace you have there!
