What's up with Jamie?

Welcome back!

Jamie has been pretty busy . I've been trying to get two tutorials on the XNA screenmanagement tutorials series up on my site. I've also been doing a little work on an entry to a programming challenge at Game Institute. This game is different than anything I've tried before. It is a game that looks a little like it is 3D but it is actually all done using 2D image, no 3D models or anything. The theme of this challenge is to make a 2D game that incorporates 3D game play elements. If you've ever seen the old Eye of the Beholder games by SSI you will have an idea of what I'm trying to accomplish. I've just got some simple rendering done that was hard coded meaning I drew the images with no data.

Thought you might be interested so here's a little screen shot of the game being rendered. I used the Genetica Viewer from Spiral Graphics and the GIMP for images.
