The Adventures of a rubber ball :D

I haven’t played this addictive little game on a smartphone yet, but I have played an early beta version of it on my pc – and even then it was a lot of fun!

It sort of reminded me of the old Nintendo game called Snake Rattle n Roll. Not in any similarity of graphics or gameplay, but rather in the adrenaline pumping need to get to that next level….-cough-

The game was developed – from scratch – by my friend George Panayiotou. Some of you may remember George from comments.Not only is he a brilliant game designer, he also taught himself Maya [Maya is the computer graphics program used to create most of the best CG in movies], and he’s a very talented graphic designer.

George and I go way back to an online forum called guru3D. It was a fun forum in which to hang out, but more importantly, it was a great place to learn from a bunch of very clever geeks. ๐Ÿ˜€

Aaaanyway…if you play games on your mobile phone, why not give The Adventures of a RubberBall a go?

The link below will take you to George’s site:

I believe you can get the Adventures of a RubberBall [for Android] from Google Play. The iOS App Store is coming soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations George!

The photographer I wish I were….

Way back at the start of the millenium, I used to lurk on the edges of a wonderful geek forum called Guru3D. I learned a lot about computer hardware from Guru3D, I also made friends with some wonderful geeks, two of whom have remained online friends ever since.

One of those old friends is George Panayiotou. George is a talented photographer and graphic designer who pops into this blog every now and then. He also uses Maya, the same top end graphics package the Offspring uses. The thing I envy the most though, is George’s ability to see, and capture, the breathtaking in the ordinary. Here are some favourites from amongst his older photos:

-sigh- I think I’ll just stick to words.
