    Breakfast and Brainstorming

    Bovril toast and orange juice breakfast

    So!  Woke up at half 7 this morning, took a peek at the theme, and then went back to bed for a while to think about it.  Caverns, eh?

    Eventually got up properly and made bovril toast and 200ml of orange juice for breakfast!  Yum!  Liquified cow.

    Been doing some brainstorming on the pad you can see to the left there – I’ve got an idea I rather like:

    Alternative Club Tycoon: The Cavern Club

    You own and run “The Cavern Club” – a struggling nightclub for the goth/metal/rock community of your town/city.  It’s up to you to choose the tracks, price the drinks, and get everyone happy (well, keep the goths poetic, at least).

    Plus Points:

    • The graphics will be gravy.  It’s going to be  a number crunching game, or at least a number balancing game.
    • Any graphics I do make for it will be heavily stylised and hopefully ‘cute’.  Look forward to cubic metal heads moshing!


    • Music.  Huh.  I’m going to see if I can get away with being sneaky here, because there’s no way I can create ‘generic goth track number 17′ and ‘generic metal anthem 8′.

    Oh, and I discovered that I can’t use the ‘play and charge’ cable to make an XBOX 360 pad work on the PC.  Doh!  I’ll be getting a wired controller some time today – but if it’s a sim game, mouse control seems best anyway!

      I totally LOVE the tree you have for decoration! What material flowers are made of?
