De Blob and TIO

The beginning of something new

Welcome visitor.

Sorry for the bareness of this blog, however it will soon be filled and will overflow with oozing greatness. In case you’re wondering, I am a university student in my 2nd year studying Computer Games Programming. This paradise, will be used to present my latest programming projects from my university course and perhaps some other projects.

These projects include creating a software renderer, producing a game using the Unreal Engine based on Enid Blyton’s Famous Five and there will be others, so watch this space.

Thanks for visiting. Hopefully you will return here in 1 – 2 weeks, where you will hopefully see new content.
