Game Development Itch

04 Aug 2018. comments

Lately I’ve been getting the itch to develop games again. The last time I was involved in game development was years ago and it was with Java. This time around I’m thinking of writing a game in Typescript because I really enjoy the language.

As part of my game development journey this time around I will be blogging my experiences, learnings, and decisions as I go. I don’t know what this will look like yet or whether I’ll be able to keep up a regular pace but I’m going to give it a shot. If you have any thoughts about any of my posts on the subject please do leave a comment.


I knew that I wanted to write games in Typescript so I went looking around for a good framework to use with it. I found one called Excalibur. It looks pretty good on its face. I like the fact that the framework is simple and straightforward and has extensive documentation. I’m going to give it a shot.

Until next time.
