Is this thing on?

Hey there, and welcome to Taylored Games!  If you're wondering what this is all about, you're not the only one - I still don't even fully know what I'll be posting about here.  Basically, I like making video games.  I used to work as a programmer and developer for a small gaming studio, but I was laid off from my job at the beginning of this year.  Now it is something I do in my spare time.

I'm currently working on a little puzzle game that is kind of a cross between a Rubik's Cube and an n-puzzle; this Rubik's Plane game is actually quite similar to what I'm trying to do, although I conceived of the idea and was already well into coding it before I discovered this little Flash game.  I'm taking my time with the game because I want to do it right - I want all the artwork, sound effects, music, animations, and as few bugs as possible before I make it publicly available.  The engine that I'm using for it is called FlatRedBall, and so far it has been working pretty well for me.  I'm not an artist or a composer, so I'm planning to use pre-existing art and music that has been released under a Creative Commons license.

When the game is finished (at least to an acceptable degree), I plan to make it freely available on this blog.  Until then, I may post periodic updates on the game's progress.  I'm looking forward to getting it finished, because I can't wait to share it with the rest of the world (and then, hopefully, to move on to bigger and better things).
