Our attempt at Rusty game jam - Weekly #25-2022
Long time no see!
I noticed that I haven't even posted about our wedding day. It was the best day of my life. Very beautiful day. I cried almost the whole day because it was so beautiful. I love my wife!
This week I've attended a Rusty game jam #2. It was a great experience for me as I have been able to dive deeper into Rust and bevy game-development engine. Big thanks to @silen-z, who joined my team and helped me get going at the start. We didn't manage to finish the game in time. As we only had a week and we also didn't code each day of the week. We have only been able to get some collision mechanics and map creation working. But I am very proud anyway. You can check the source code for the game on my GitHub and also download binaries to try the game out on any platform. Thanks to @septum for providing a good boilerplate for a bevy project. The whole process was broadcasted on my stream. I am very thankful for anyone who participated.
I have to admit something. I was not inspired or motivated to write weeklys for the last two months. For that, I feel a little bumped as there were many good thoughts worth sharing. I was not very comfortable writing as the last month was very tough. During that time I was focused on inner development and figuring out how my brain responds to different stimuli. I've been able to find a new project to work on. The onboarding story was one of the hardest I went through. I managed to move on and stop thinking about what could've I done better in the past and focus more on what can I do better now.
I should have at least 10 recommendations, but I haven't accumulated any in my notes.
But here are some podcasts that made my days better:
- Podcast Nevyhoreni (not burnt out) by Forbes Slovensko
- Definitively check out Primeagen's last few videos. He inspires me so much. Doesn't have a problem talking about his failures openly on the internet.
Another good resource I've been able to find is another Rust framework for building Web applications called Sycamore.
That's it. Let's jump into another week inspired after a very successful one and my plan is to get better with Rust. I will try to find a new project to work on. Something smaller that could improve my workflow.
