I've started playing it. I've started modifying it. This cannot possibly end well.

Visual Probability

Binomial Probability Density Function
The color of each rectangular cell is determined by the probability of an event being "successful" x out of n trials with each event having probability p. Each column is a different probability (p = cell x / total horizontal cells). The number of trials n is represented by the total number of cells vertically (30), and the number of successes per n trials (x) is represented by the y position of the cell divided by the total number of cells vertically.

The probability of each position is then transformed into a color by multiplying it by 960 to get a value for hue, then truncated to a maximum value of 240. 960 is used due to the fact that the highest value for any given cell is roughly 0.25, and I wanted to use the full range of hues.

I created this as I saw the way the numbers on a binomial distribution table moved smoothly from 0+ (very small numbers, but larger than zero) to ~0.25 in a line from upper left to lower right, and wanted to duplicate the appearance with color.

A few more images of varying n and p sizes after the break.

Game with a hexagon-based display.
  • Wrote in a character set that includes capital letters, numbers, and some punctuation
  • Dynamic hexagon displays can be used for text and game elements.
  • Going to make an arcade shooter of some sort.
  • Would not be too difficult to implement with real LEDs.

I made raocow upset

A bit late on this, but raocow reviewed, or at least attempted to review, my GMC Jam 5 entry 'Daface'.


Now, it appears that I have 1. Evoked unhappy images from raocow's past and 2. Gently stirred the troll-pot that is the YouTube comments section. Fantastic.

Now, as far as raocow goes, I have no issues with his actions and completely respect his decision to stop playing. The condescending comments almost bug me except, well, I don't actually care. It was a joke.

Someone suggested I go on dictionary.com and read the definition of a game.
The first definition is "an amusement or pastime." Therefore, as long as I'm amused, it is a game.
That is all.

Thank you and goodnight.

GMC Jam 5 hit me in daface.

Oh Daface, what a sick, sick little joke you were.

 Time to round up all of the praise, hatred, and general confusing surrounding my GMC Jam 5 entry.

Little people

My, everyone's been busy. But what have I been doing?
Short answer - Nothing!
Far too much school and not doing anything productive to do anything productive.

Today, I made some little people that do things, and I am proud of them.

GMC Jam #5

Seeing as I don't do anything, ever, I have decided not to do anything about it.

I did half-assedly participate in the latest GMC Jam, however.

My not-really-a-game entry:
