Bigger mornings

I did another three miles today…

…and was still back home well before nine because I woke up about seven this morning. That doesn’t usually happen, as I place a lot of importance on natural sleep patterns (I’m aware that this is a privilege resulting from being in charge of my own work hours!) and mine tend to favour the hours between one and nine. The extra couple of waking hours have made a huge difference and I’ve managed to get a lot more achieved today!

My prep for my next game is going well. I’ve made a mini-game in Adventuron that I’m going to try porting today to see if I can get it working on a Spectrum emulator. That should give me a better idea of any issues that I’m going to need to look out for when doing the same process with the main jam game later in the month.

I’m also quite excited about the weekend – it looks like I’ll have a bit of time to get back to playing videogames as well as making them! Fingers crossed.

Running vlogs and review posts as usual over the weekend, and I’ll update again on Monday.

Batman: Arkham Knight
Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na BATMAN. Arkham Knight was one of the reasons I built a gaming PC five years ago… yet I never got round to buying it, largely because I never got round to finishing all the previous Arkham games on the XBOX 360! However, Geth is fairly certain that he wants to get an XBOX Series X (which will be backwards-compatible with XBOX One), and the XBOX One version is now a fraction of the price that it was on release, soooo… I may be starting an Arkham marathon again soon!
