I recently signed up for a Steam account for gaming and realized I needed an image for my profile. I hate putting up bio pics, so I decided to go with an avatar. It doesn’t quite look like me and I don’t have a cat but close enough for the virtual me! Here’s hoping I don’t become too much of a game addict!
Have been playing around some more with making games/toys and noticed that my draggablable elements weren’t working on ipads or iphones… was seriously bummed until I discovered this most awesomest script that allows touch events to be seen as mouse events in your code.
jQuery UI Touch Punch
I haven’t tested it extensively but seems to work on my butterfly play page:
where you can drag the butterflies into the pink column and the background changes.
I can’t believe I just discovered computer games! OK, I loved space invaders and pacman as a kid but never really got RPG or other games until just recently… and me a self-respecting web dev and everything. Now I’ll finally know what my coworkers are talking about.
So far, I’ve been mostly into the hidden object/puzzle games with one of my favorites being “Lost Chronicles: Fall of Caesar” by National Geographic. It’s probably too easy for most but I enjoyed the settings and learning some things I didn’t know about Brutus’ campaign.
