The Muni Race – Part I

A while ago, in 2008, I started coding a unicycle video game for the PC. I never finished it, but I always wanted to code one. And a few months ago I started coding the game again, but instead of coding it for the PC, I decided to code it for the Commodore 64.

I want to code the game in a retro style. Coding a Commodore 64 game is already retro, and I want to create a retro game for the Commodore 64, like if this game were coded in 1982 instead of 2015. So it would be something like a retro-retro game.

Developing code for the Commodore 64 takes a lot of time, and taking into account that my free time is almost null, my progress is very slow. But so far I managed to code the Intro and About scenes, and I started coding the game mechanics.

If you want try the game, you can download it from here: https://github.com/ricardoquesada/c64-the-muni-race

Que paso en lo que va del año

Lo primero que pasó es que en Octubre 2014 fui padre y eso significa, además de tener una enorme felicidad, es que ya no tengo tanto tiempo como antes. Y eso significa que tuve menos tiempo para andar en monociclo y menos tiempo para escribir en el blog. Pero para hacer un resumen, esto es lo que pasó:

  • Fui a Unicon XVII en Canada, y participé en Basket “A”, en Hockey “B”, en Muni Downhill “Advanced”, en Muni Uphill, en Muni Cross-Country “Advanced”. Muy muy divertido, en Agosto 2014
  • Hice el San Francisco Uni Tour en Septiembre 2014
  • Fui al California Muni Weekend en Los Angeles en Octubre 2014
  • Y seguí jugando as basket todos los martes en Berkeley
  • Y traté de hacer Muni una vez por semana, aunque a veces no se podia.
