The Way of Milky
Words by Shawn Lukas
To beat the longest week indoors is to learn anew making sense of mess behind any pastime. That is, simply to make your own video game. The title in question is unquestionable and now in works as we speak. A so-called galaxy ocular on the web browser to be played fairly by one’s thumb or mouse.
But just for a sec, forget that this game was made in a week; forget wondering why it does not render on canvas; and just dwell into the unknown it shall and might become. Here’s my longest week calendar in short.
On Sunday I put my feet up and entertain the idea of making a simple responsive game, for people and the Web; and between Monday and Tuesday I wrestle on paper, wiring and drafting possible rules for play. Wednesday was for keeping ideas in the drawer, I suppose.
But so why a week? Why not a month or two, perhaps half-year or so? Maybe because I was myself on holiday; I daresay I was not The Wizard of JS; all because I was on drugs for being pushed under the weather by flu: thence came the blueprint under seven days.
