I’m always and forever going to be the kid who wants to make games. It’s just always there in the back of my mind.
I’ve known about libgdx for a long time, but always felt it might be too serious for my level of time and interest. But, I have this constant hum in my mind about how little games are made; what would you need to test, what are the events that make state changes.
The breakout clone tutorial https://colourtann.github.io/HelloLibgdx/ is really nicely done, with enough detail left to the developer to make it something more than just following instructions.
This little project also gave me an opportunity to look at some available github features for CI/CD and Project Management which I don’t actually use at work.
