Ziro thanks you for visiting his profile.
* salutes *

He is a freelance programmer for browser-based Flash game engines. While most of his work is done for clients, he also has two games of his own, both have been sponsored. Please check out his test site to see some of these games.

Ziro's reason for joining GaiaOnline was the game, zOMG!, which unfortunately, has been taken out of service.

Please have a look around. He likes comments and PMs, so please don't be shy.
(Especially people on his friends list - he's looking at you. * points *)

- Ziro out.

And thanks for the link. I actually found out about it before hand from people talking about it on Skype. biggrin

I found the timing to be perfect as we were just discussing Flash vs. Html5. Seems like Gaia's devs themselves are considering switching over and are in the mean time learning the language. Could potentially see some Html5 games from them in the future. 3nodding

Hello, officer,

It's so cool to see Beam rider got its inspiration from a Colecovision vision game. eek

I know what you mean though. Mavdoc owns several games on steam but never even has the time to play them. Game development brings it own amusement in a sense. Also far more fulfilling. biggrin

Growing up I loved platformers since those were the kings in the 2d console days but I then switched to racers and fighters and even jrpgs(for their story telling and characters wink ) . Once I shifted to pc gaming it was a good deal of rts and fps gaming that i used to do(also when I started map designing).

But in recent years(maybe because of becoming old) I've been playing more puzzle games, sandbox games like minecraft, board games, turn based strategy games, TCGs etc. xd

I used to love playing games on newgroudns as well. They have such quality games and animations. I've even asked flash dev related questions on their forums. blaugh

I wish I could've spent more time designing games, but not a lot of time for it when it's being done on the side. If only I could've had a chance to go pro. But that would require so much more experience amd knowledge which I don't have. gonk

And thanks, man. Even though it's a wolf. The mane throws people off I guess. razz

Hey officer! 4laugh

I just realized that though we have talked a lot about game design, we never talked about games themselves. So what do you play on, PC? Consoles? handhelds? And what kinds of genre?

I'm personally almost exclusively a PC gamer. And mostly on Steam! 4laugh I've been gaming ever since I could. Started out on the game and watch series and the Atari 2600! biggrin

I like any all kinds of games. Strategy, shooters, adventure, puzzle, rpgs, whether hardcore or casual as long as it's fun. But for the past few years I've drifted heavily from single player games to those I can play with friends I've made around Gaia! So what's your story? 4laugh

Well, that's a relief. I too think as long as they're able to come up with a good concept, they'll receive good support! 4laugh

Ooh! That is a very interesting perspective on it. Do you think it will hurt their chances to get funding for their project if they go with html5 then? surprised

And dang! That sounds really bad if javascript is even more limiting than as3. Hopefully they'll be able to work through its limitations. I'm gonna find out for myself in time. mad

And thanks for the link. It was very insightful. I passed it along to one of the former zOMG! devs who is working on a mobile game right now. xp

I managed to get some interesting info about the team making the new mmo. Apparently they'e using html5 and not flash to make it. eek


What s your opinion on the whole Flash vs. Html5 scenario and how viable is Html5 for making mmos if you can hazard a guess. surprised

Aww yeah. I know what you mean. biggrin

It would've been so cool to be a zOMG! game dev. 4laugh

Haha! Would you have had a police officer as an npc then had you got a ticket? I'm kinda wondering which shop you'd fit in. razz

Whoa! I wasn't expecting anything in return. Let alone something that valuable. Are you sure about that trade? gonk

Did you want to become an NPC?
