Reece turned six this year and for his big birthday bash he wanted to have a super cool, super fun super hero party. So Wifey and I sat down and tried to plan a birthday party for a bunch of super hero six year olds. We had it ALL mapped out and our battle plan ready and then two days before the big event I had a thought.
A crazy geek dad thought.
I should make a game. A SUPER HERO game. A game that all the kids at the party could play. And not only could they play it, but I should make it so that they could draw their own super heroes and then battle in the game as their own super hero! I was pretty jazzed about the idea. And got SUPER EXCITED (which I thought was fitting being a super hero party and all that)
La storia vera di come George Clingerman, XNA developer, ha creato in due giorni un videogame per il compleanno del figlio con character direttamente disegnati da lui e dai suoi amichetti.
Ok, il risultato non sarà il blockbuster dell’anno, ma volete mettere la felicità del bambino nel vedere i propri disegni in un videogioco?
Geek dad of the year!
