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
