Last month as most of you know I had a few visitors over to the house for what some have dubbed “Geek Fest”. Essentially that is what it was but regardless of that, one of the “Geeks” who attended was RIT student [Julian Hammerstein] or better known as [BETA].

He and [Mike Moffitt] had been in development of a new computer game called [Ghost In The Machine] which [BETA] had brought with him to the meet-up. I gotta say I was pretty impressed with how well and how smoothly it worked and the 8-bit sounds and music really kept with the nostalgic nature of the game play which apparently is extremely challenging, just like old games were.

So anyway, the two have started up a KickStarter to bring this game to a larger market via Steam (I think) so if you’ve got $5 bucks, back their project and get the game after the KS concludes. Hard to go wrong! Check out the video on the KS page with the big pic above will take you right too and get the full low down on the project!

I’ve never found it difficult to convey exactly how an experience has affected me before. It’s almost always the same key elements that are quite easy to describe in a manner of just a few words. The events of the last few days however have left me in awe and really have opened my eyes to the potential that so many like minds have to offer. So much that I can’t describe exactly what I got out of it other than I have been enlightened to a variety of new experiences that were just plain awesome!

On top of that, the bonds that have been made with just a few days of real life contact are one of the most valuable experiences to leave with and I think we’re all going to be holding on to that for a very long time now and I can’t wait to see where this leads us all in the future!

So, over the next few days, I’ll be making some posts of the accomplishments that were made while we were all together. We’ll all be posting either finished or in-progress threads on the forums and I’ll be doing a short write-up of each one after they get posted on their respective sites.

Some new big things coming up soon as well, including a glimpse of my secret project that I’ve been working on for over 8 months now! Stay tuned for some exciting news shortly!
