Technology for Toddlers?
July 31st 2004, 06:53 CEST by Jibble

Kids learn a lot through manipulation of our three-dimensional world.  If you've ever sat down for a four-hour session of repetitive video gaming, you know what I'm getting at here.  Are kids really learning anything from all of those kid-oriented web sites, or are they just learning how to jump through the right hoop and then doing it over and over without additional challenge?  Do you think that the family discussed in the article is a typical example, or an exception to the norm?

Btw: this is a loooong "live" version version of a short loop I made for the new game.

I'd love to see some examples, because it sounds like a fantastic idea.

Maybe he should get a job with 3DRealms. That's just the kind of management help they appear to need.

Here is some of my pixel art that is already uploaded for viewing. My newest, and some of my best, stuff is at home and is not online. I'll post it tonight.

Thanks. I'll post some newer stuff tonight. Alienworld is one of the first things I ever did. It is done only in a web-safe pallette and is kind of limited in scope because of that.

I have been working on a lot of  true-color game sprites lately that are almost done with their walkcycles, jumps, deaths, shots, etc. A few things here or there and I want to start seeking out programmers. I'd like to have my portion of the game almost completely done before I put up a site asking for help.

Oh, yes, I did. I forgot to email you back, however, as this weekend I spent over 30 hours working on horse arenas. I have the tan to prove it.

I can do everything for a little under $30. I am assuming everything is four color.

Speaking of 'all about me,' this marks the first time I've ever used a picture of myself on an interweb forum. It's kinda creepy seeing all the little-me's staring back at, er, me.

Jeet, be careful what you wish for. You may end up with the most obnoxiously pornographic Mario/Mickey combo ever conceived.

This doesn't stem from disliking you, but rather and intense hatred of Mickey Mouse.

How the fuck can you hate Mickey Mouse?  If you want to be trendy and hate the "Disney Corporation" I'll understand....but not liking Mickey is just wrong.

Eh?  That's what he IS wishing for.

And shave your beard, out of the corner of my eye it looks like you've got a really high collar like you'd find in some budget sci-fi thing.  Well I suppose you could keep it, but only if you start striding back and forth and rant about crushing the rebellion.

Indeed. First 3 times I saw it out of the corner of my eye, I though I was looking at JC Denton.

I personally dislike the Mickey Mouse character. He's been transformed into the amorphous blob. It doesn't even remotely resemble a mouse. Also, I admire the work of the old school disney animators even if I don't care for the company itself.

Mickey always seemed bland to me.  I prefered the extended Donald Duck family and the retold fairy tales.  Otherwise, give me Warners.

I forgot to address the beard questions. Here's a better pic of the beard. Usually it is a bit cleaner than this; I am purposely growing it out to silly lengths. I want to see how much worse my wife will tolerate it.
