Hi, I'm Waldo! I've been making games for over 15 years, but just recently set out on a journey to make this a full time career. Each week I post about the status of my journey and I plan to share my failures, successes and any tips or tricks that helped me along the way. For the complete story on how I got started on this adventure:
After receiving all of these requests for more tutorial videos, I realize this is an avenue that is not only easy for me to put out, but something that a lot of people will find useful. This could be a very easy way to gain not only more traffic to the website, but also an easy to gain subscribers through all my channels.
Lately, I've been working on this game called Mr. Postman. It's a tribute to the very first game I ever made which involves a character moving left and right on the screen to collect envelopes before time runs out. It's sort of like an endless runner in the sense that the game never actually ends. You keep playing until you lose, shooting for a high score. The problem I've been facing with this game is that it's so basic. A little too dull to be a complete game and I've almost sort of lost interest in working on it anymore to fix that problem. I've moved on to a more impactful game that better deserves my time.
The reason I am telling you this is that I plan to use Mr. Postman as a tutorial series. There are a lot of mechanics and talking points that can be explained through the demonstration of building this game through a walkthrough video.
