sumiguchi.ca is now online
I have posted a permanent link to sumiguchi.ca, my web site, on the right menu. It is a little low on content right now - just hosting my game: Santa's Sweatshop.
I have been working on a new GBA game that is almost like a guitar sim. I have put a concept build together and passed around to a few friends. The feedback was pretty positive and I think I know how to turn it into a game. It would not be unlike other music games like Karaoke Revolution and DDR.
I have been working only on the gameplay engine for this, but need to start considering graphics. I have asked a friend of mine that is a graphic artist to help me out in that department - hopefully he will!
I have been a proud owner of a GBA since the launch of the micro in September. I really can't beleive how much I like the GBA - so much in fact that I plan to pick up the DS Lite.
Unfortunately, one thing has bothered me - no accessories are available for the micro!? I wish they could have found a way to make the standard GBA plug fit in the micro. So I sent of an inquiry to Nintendo to find out why there are no accessories in stores and was a bit suprised by the response:
The accessories for the Game Boy micro are not available at local retailers, because it is a limited edition system and we do not know how long it will remain on the market. To find out more about the Game Boy micro and the Game Boy Advance SP you may want to visit www.gameboy.com and www.nintendo.com.
Am I the only person who didn't know this was a "limited edition" system? Oh well, even if I had known, I probably would have picked up the micro over the SP. I guess they do sell accessories on nintendo.com...
I have to take this matter into my own hands and build my own accessories....more to come!
