First Post!

May 2nd, 2011

Now that I’ve fulfilled my meme-related obligations, I am pleased to welcome you to the newly redesigned ChronoSoft site. The home page is now a blog which will house my thoughts on various classic and modern games, as well as game design and programming. You can expect to read regular news and technical related posts for all of my upcoming creations right here.

This is the first time my site has changed substantially since the release of Rogue Touch back in early 2009. In the past this was more of a shrine to Rogue than a website you’d expect for a company that, you know, might actually plan on releasing some new games :)

ChronoSoft’s new design is the result of a collaborative project between Anna Ahearn and myself. She did most of the hard work you see here, but was also very flexible in allowing me to tweak graphics and HTML/CSS where I wanted as well. If you’re in the market for web design services I highly recommend getting in touch with Anna- she delivers hand written code, prompt service, and reasonable rates! You can find out more about her at http://www.annaahearn.com/

Finally, I’d like to say thank you to the die-hard rogues that visit regularly, and a friendly hello to all the new faces that show up! Please watch this space in the coming days for special news updates about Rogue Touch and Spirit Hunter Mineko.

  1. Coolio. Can’t wait to see updates for this awesome looking roguelike. I WONDER IF IT WILL BEAT ToME OUT OF MY FAVORITE ROGUELIKE SPOT. WE’LL SEE. Teehee

  2. Edd, I hope that Spirit Hunter Mineko has some mass appeal!

    Funny you mentioned ToME… That is one of the more modern games I have been drawing some inspiration from… Another simple masterpiece that gives me ideas is Desktop Dungeons. These are in addition to the classic SNES games that everyone loves.

    For the past year I’ve been refining the core gameplay ideas as I get artwork and bits of code completed. Refining comes from some fun “research” – playing, reading forums (love all the stuff that gets posted in ToME’s Ideas forum!) and so on.

    I’ll be writing a new post this coming week, maybe the topic will include some discussion of other roguelikes, dungeon crawlers, and other games that inspire me!
