And started a blog about it :)

I used to write games for a living a long while ago. I’ve made stuff for the C64, NES, SNES, Saturn and PS1 but over years have ended up in managerial roles.
I’d really like to write another game, nothing too massive but something fun to play.
I’ve started a framework on my Mac which is pretty nice and have a pretty strong idea of an achievable game to make. I just need to push on get some game elements in there rather than constantly fiddle around with technology :)
Hopefully writing this here will give me a bit of drive to get on with it :D
Well I’m not very far into this but have managed to get a nice framework together than allows me have a site where you can create and destroy users and have role based access. And it was pretty easy to be honest :)
I started using Agile Development With Rails to help me get into Rails. It’s pretty good and fairly comprehensive but some of the code seemed a little bit overly busy for what it was doing.
Reading compounded this view after looking at the user authentication recipe vs the Agile Development. The Rails Recipe example was a lot simpler.
So I’d suggest anyone trying to learn Rails get both of these books :D
Anyone have any other titles worth looking at?
