WOW, it's been one crazy week, well actually the past few weeks have been crazy and though I won't share what made it a crazy week here, you'll just have to take my word for it. Aside though from being overwhelmed with work here and there, not just meeting with the local SBTDC and SCORE, I have one more meeting with them in a few days, again. Great bunch of people that really are poised to help small startups, small businesses get off the ground the right way. They do all of this for free. Business plan is finished, they're helping me with the financial spread sheets, and those are almost finished as well. It seems like it's a never ending process of refinement that takes place similar of that to a persons resume. However I have informed them at the SBTDC that I won't be seeking outside investors. The people who help me every day, those are my partners, Jonathan and John and soon one more individual, they pour themselves into this studio and they deserve most if not all of the credit. They invested their time, and in return, they along with myself own this studio and we won't risk losing that, it's our baby. At least now we do have a business plan and have began the process of incorporating! I am just glad I'm not going it alone this time. It is more fun having others around to work with. Spoke with Jonathan yesterday and he has been out of town and has a lot of work to submit so I will meet up with him next Monday, he's a great guy, hard worker and I can't wait to see what else he has developed and drawn out.
Also I'm working on developing the studios new website. I used to do website design so I'm a little rusty, HTML 5 isn't that much different from HTML 4. Because I really want to have one site that contains it all in one place. I love how easy it is to label post with Blogger but some how the studios blog and Proxy Monsters blog got separated. I purchased a few domain names and a hosting package and should have it all ready soon.
Jonathan is also going to be handling the artwork for Ninjay and its sequel. For now with all this help I'm taking a back seat and focusing more on the coding and framework construction.
I also want to thank the ton of followers that have, followed me these past few days, most of them all indie game developers as well. I've learned a lot using Twitter and right now it's my preferred method of reaching others. Thanks to an old friend John he really opened up my eyes to how Twitter can be used as not just a marketing tool but also to connect with the same, like minded crowd. So thank you very much for following me! I'm also learning it's not about quantity, for myself anyways, it's about the quality, so am I going for tens of thousands of followers on Twitter? Sure that would be nice, but I want them to be in the same field and share my same interest.
Updates coming soon for Proxy Monsters and with it Google Map implementation, the camera API's will be added in the next update. It's just too much to include right now and at the same time I want it functional and appealing. It's going to be great!
That's it for now and as always take care and have a great day!
