In this article I try to bungle my way through explaining the trials, tribulations & techniques of writing a home made 1990's style video game using the Game Maker software and why a middle aged man who is hurtling towards 40 would want to spend so much time in front of a computer screen besides the daily "Naughty Site" visit.

The 90s were a period where our childhood viewing was slowly inundated with anime. It has been a part of the whole for a number of years but it was the advent of shows such as Pokemon that really led to a minor domination of the market that has since dissipated but never REALLY gone away. My school was Pokemon crazy. Cards, games, TV…colourful hats. You couldn’t go a day without someone talking about trades and evolution. Which was great…not for me, but great for others. See I didn’t have a Gameboy and I didn’t play card games. My exposure was the anime and I liked it well enough. I will still say Charizard is one of the coolest dragons to grace childrens TV. But despite a brief revival during my uni years where I actually played a few of the games, Pokemon has just never been my thing. Even when I was small, I wanted plot and goals and character development. Plus, because I was just a deeply troubled would be murderer, I wanted to see stuff die and people care that stuff had died.
