4 Months of AiGameDev.com & October Contest

Alex J. Champandard on October 2, 2007

It’s now been four months since I relaunched this site as a blog. I haven’t posted a summary for two months (since I was busy getting married last month :-) but the site is going better than ever. As usual, many thanks to you guys for making it all possible with your support and attention!

Subscriber count on October 1st.

The full RSS feed has smashed through the 450 subscribers mark, and I hit 100 blog posts just a few days ago. Read on for October prizes you can win to celebrate!

Most Interesting Comments

There were lots of interesting comments in the last two months. Excluding the winners last time, here’s my Top 5, in no particular order:

  1. Diego on The Missing Ingredient: What’s Next for Game AI?

  2. BS-er on Coroutines as State Machines (short but very interesting!)

  3. Travis on The Missing Ingredient: What’s Next for Game AI?

  4. Angel on The Importance of Actions and Conditions

  5. Dave Mark on Going All Fuzzy: When Do You Avoid Discrete Logic?

I used Python to help me pick this month’s winner:

>>> import random
>>> random.randint(1,5)

Congratulations to Angel for winning an AiGameDev.com T-Shirt, and many thanks to him for contributing to the discussion!
