I got a game in a printed magazine again, so I’m happy. This time, I got into PCZone, a UK (again) magazine focussing on – get this – PCs. The game in question was Innoquous 3, my personal favourite creation.

I found out about it via a PDF version of the page in question (which you can read by clicking this), and am now trying to find out if that issue is the current one, or if I’ll need to order a back issue. I’d like to get a copy of the magazine, as I did with last year’s EDGE that featured the original Innoquous. It’s a long shot, but if any of the readers of this blog happen to get PCZone, I’d appreciate a comment on the issue number or date of the magazine with the Innoquous 3 review in (page 96). Thanks!

Not yet touched any of the other videos I got from the charity shops (see previous blog). I doubt I’ll watch Titanic or Independence Day any time soon, and I’ll be downloading the Indiana Jones trilogy so as not to unwrap them and reduce their resellability when I’m bored of them. I’ll watch Harry Enfield’s shows, the Connolly stand up, and the Mr Bean episodes at some point, though.

Still not making much progress with game creation, what with the distraction of all the other entertainment I have on offer. TIM is still my active project. I’ve an urge to make some kind of puzzle game though – kinda like Bust-A-Move/Worms Blast, both of which I thoroughly enjoy (I still have my old copy of Worms Blast. Still play it too). I may end up canning TIM if I can’t think of anything awesome to do with it, or going Innoquous 1 and half-ass-releasing it with its source code.

On a different note, my old school rang up yesterday. I failed all but one A Level. They thought my IT was close to a pass, so are allowing me the chance to tune up the work from home and re-entering it. I accepted – I don’t have to go back there, and I could get another shiny notch on my slightly grubby education record. Suits me!

All bases covered? Fo sho! G’bye!
