Wow, 2020 really started off with a bang. The major thing being Covid 19 that stated in Wuhan, China about Dec 2019. Because of my job, I followed the news of it closely and knew that it will be all over, worse than SARS.
Singapore was hit with SARS in 2013 (if I get the dates correct). I was in university year 3 and was given 1-2 months off from school because of the outbreak in SG, It was scary times but as I was younger, I enjoyed the break from school than worried about it. It cleared up after a few months, with a few deaths.
Thus I knew, this will be like SARS and it will be worse since the number of mainland chinese travellers is way bigger than 2013. Very soon we did see cases popping up, and now it has risen to more than 5000 when I posted this. Although this bug is hard to defeat but we will defeat it like SARS.
I am not here to rant about Covid 19 since there are enough reports, theories and fake news out there. Since my last post, I lived like a hermit, spending most of my wake hours reading webnovels on QiDian and playing Mobile Legends.
After reading 全职高手 (King's Avatar) I am interested in esports and read up about it. I decided to try MOBA and the first one I go for is Heroes of the Storm since I already played that a few years ago. Then I tried LOL (League of Legends) and got thrashed. Afterwhich I found Mobile Legends and got played a lot of it. Sadly I wasn't good enough. I can win but win rate is about 50%. I was called noobs a lot and got a bit discourage and turn to youtube to learn how to play better.
While watching MLBB game play and tutorials, I came upon an youtube video about buildbox in Feb. A game engine that can make games without coding. I tried it and sadly the lack of tutorials drove me crazy. And since I prefer to make 2D games, I decided to go back to game maker. I have gamemaker 7 but it was no longer supported and the new engine is Gamemaker Studio 2.
It was easy to pick up and I decided to build a game for android. Some of you may know I made a few games (using GameSalad) for iOS back when iphone 3/4 was the craze. I took out the art assets from the game Up and Down and use GMS2 to build it. Took awhile for me to figure how to make it work and published it on google play store. You can find the game here. If you try it, do help me by sharing and give a review. Thank you.
After finishing Up and Down, I decided to create a new game. The tentative title is I'm Right, Nothing Left. More info will be provided as I finalise the gameplay.
Thanks for reading.

I write for fun to entertain myself and others. Hopefully you will enjoy my works too. If you don't, too bad, but don't write to me about it.
