You may have noticed that we’re going through a quiet spell. No, we haven’t disappeared, we’re working a hard as ever putting together our level editor. The editor is going to allow every site user to create their own code challenges and deploy them to the community. You will be able to choose the units in your challenge, the strategy required to win, the win conditions, and the level art. Like Legos or minecraft, the rest will be up to you.
Want to teach your children some simple if/else statements? Or a struggling student about variables? Or your tutee about pathfinding algorithms? Pretty soon you’ll be able to make your own educational coding games and distribute them to the world.
In the mean time, let us know if there’s anything we can do to improve the way the game currently works. We really appreciated everyone’s feedback to the MVP and want to keep the momentum going!
As you may have guessed from the title, I am no longer going to be doing Life Nomadic. I'm in the Dominican Republic now, and will leave as soon as I can find a decent ticket back to Austin. I might go to Haiti first, since I'm already over here, but I'm not sure yet.
There are a bunch of little reasons, but the biggest one is that I feel like it's time for me to settle down. Not completely, with a wife and kids and all that, but I'll at least be staying in one place for a few years. I miss having a house, a car, my own bed and furniture, and maybe most of all: a kitchen that I can keep stocked constantly.
People have been telling me for a while that I should develop some responsibility, and that's probably right. Doing whatever I want all the time is definitely fun, but at some point I have to ask where it will lead in the future. I love kids and know I'll have some eventually. If I keep traveling I may never be in a position to raise them properly.
