I am a part time programmer and digital artist from Alberta ,Canada. I got into this after a lifetime of being just a gamer. I started out as just a map maker at the Warlords Keep making maps for Warlords Battlecry 2. I built a huge MOD for Warlords Battlecry 3 and now I just released my first indie title "Amazing Ants"

In my last blog I talked about the beginning of the project and in my final blog on this subject I will wrap it up

Red Ant Story Added

I decided at the start of fall 2011 the game need more mazes so I began work on the Red Ant Story which is 100 mazes leading the antagonist Red Ants. These mazes were a lot fun to make because I got to model some neat stuff. On of the coolest mazes were the "Cross The Pond" mazes these I modeled two of my favorite bugs growing up the Giant Water Bug and Diving Beetle. Other mazes featured the Red Ants hunting caterpillars, raiding eggs from black ant hills, and having their home destroyed by a black bear.
When spring rolled around I had complete another 100 mazes and it was time to look at music and sound. And so it was by July I had chosen some really good music and sound for the project. The game at that point came alive and so I decided to release it to the public.

In Closing

So it was that Amazing Ants a game that started as a childhood game, board game and finally a computer game was completed. Recently I completed a Browser Demo of my game using Game Maker Studio and you can try it at www.belowzerogames.index.html

Ducks have one good scoring line although they are better than the Rangers

17hours 30mins ago

Also although the Hawks look like they can will goals they also have a lot of players who log alot of minutes

17hours 31mins ago

Have to say the Lightning look like the team to beat both Chicago and Ducks goaltending looks a bit shakey

17hours 33mins ago

So I predicted Black Hawks over Ducks as well because sometimes home ice isn't always an advantage in game 7's

17hours 39mins ago

Well I was right that the Lightning were going to win game 7 .Should I buy a lottery ticket

17hours 42mins ago

But I'm a fool so gonna predict BlackHawks and Tampa Bay

May 29 2015, 4:36pm

I would like to try to predict a winner of each but that would be foolhearty at best
