Green Game

I developed this game Green last year to compete in the Imagine Cup 09 Competition hosted by Microsoft and I got selected for Semi-Finals.

This is a 2D scrolling Role Playing Game, that brings awareness about some problems, our world is facing, such as Pollution, AIDS, Terrorism. In this Game, the players plays the role of a forest officer. The Forest Officer is newly appointed in a forest department, where there are so many problems like frequest forest fire(may be because of local Naxalites), Animal Poaching, Heavy Pollution(because of industrial advancements), AIDS and much more. The Objective of this game is to provide entertainment along with imparting knowledge about the current world problems. Also, some solutions are given through this game to solve those problems.

This is only a DEMO game and many features are not yet implemented and graphics are also not at its full form. I dropped developing this game as the Competition got over a long back...

This game requires .Net Framework 2.0 and XNA Framework 2.0 to run.

2 Cups for me Today

For the past 2 days, there were a number of hot rumors among the Engineering students that the result will be announced soon... But, there were no symptoms of that in Anna University web site.

Today, I went to College with my friend Kalaiselvan to do some Symposium Poster Designing work and after a while, we went to Mess for lunch. When we were eating, a message came from my friend Yuvaraj that the results are announced. I thought that he is just kidding. But, on seeing the next few messages I too believed that it was really true and I texted him my reg. no. In a few minutes, he texted me that I have

2 Arrears:-)

I was so happy to hear that the result was just 2 as I expected and nothing bad. But, I was surprised to see that the failed subjects are Mobile Computing and Graphics and Multimedia. I never expected that I would fail in Graphics and I thought the second one would be Component Based Technology. So, still I have some hope now that I could still clear the Graphics and Multimedia paper by applying for Reevaluation:-)

I am still very very happy that my results are nothing when compared to this
failure

Happy New Year 2010

Happy New Year everybody:-) Here is a small New Year poem by Joanna Fuchs
My Happy New Year wish for you
Is for your best year yet,
A year where life is peaceful,
And what you want, you get.
A year in which you cherish
The past year’s memories,
And live your life each new day,
Full of bright expectancies.
I wish for you a holiday
With happiness galore;
And when it’s done, I wish you
Happy New Year, and many more.


The theme of my blog was very dumb and so I changed to a new great theme, this new year. I like this theme very much and thanks to ThemeCraft for such a wonderful free theme.

Every year we(me and my st. marys school gang) will design a poster, wishing New Year and paste those posters around Saidapet... This year also we came up with a superb design and here it is:
