Just wanted to quick pop in here share some fun things around the Canabalt port I did, since they aren’t hosted on NG!


Canabalt Developer Interview with Finji



Aster from the Finji crew got me and mr @adamatomic in a call and we did a little podcast interview about Canabalt and game development! Both of them are very lovely and it was awesome being able to chat with adam and aster! And talk about Newgrounds and fun stuff like that! Go have a listen!


Github Blog Feature

This one I’m particularly proud of… got a small little spot in Github’s monthly “Game Bytes” blog series! I’m a big fan of Github and open source of course, and I’m very inspired by games that publish source code and all that, so it makes me smile to have a small little feature in Github Blog! If you’re not already keeping an eye on Game Bytes, you definitely should get on their email subscribe list and keep an eye out for cool projects :)


Read the article here: https://github.blog/2024-03-27-game-bytes-march-2024/


As reminder… Canabalt now has full source code open, which you can check out on Github. It was ported with HaxeFlixel.


small pax recap

i went to pax last weekend and saw many lovely friends, met people who I look up to like @mmattugh (i wish i was able to talk shop with u more... next time we meet) and @mike (he was wearing battleblock cat security guard outfit, i wish i got a pic!).


Here are two pictures from when the squad had breakfast on Sunday

In 2023 I had visitors, friends, and many people I love visit my home. Many of them drew on whiteboard I have. I will wipe it clean today, so here is a pic for myself and others of where it ended up by the end of 2023.

Almost March, but cheers to 2024 and I look forward to having people visit me 🤗

Need fresh doodles now!

Canabalt, Classic


Through the second half of January, I’ve chipped away at doing a port of classic Flash game CANABALT into HTML5, via HaxeFlixel.


You can play the updated version here: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/510303


I’ve also been given permission to release the full source code alongside it, which you can find on my Github: https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/canabalt-hf


It has also been updated to work on mobile devices, so tell me if your Samsung Galaxy S3 can hit double digit FPS.


@adamatomic gave me the original Actionscript 3 source code, and I tried to be very faithful when porting, both for gameplay purposes, and also I think how code is written is also important. Canabalt was made with Flixel, the ancestor to HaxeFlixel, so the porting process was generally seamless, and the resulting code is actually very close to what Adam wrote nearly 15 years ago.


There are some cute things I got to indulge in as it being a side project to my day job (friday nite funking…), and along with that, I got to see something through until the end/release, which has been a muscle that hasn’t been exercised in a while. FNF is a project which at times can feel like seeing something through until the end is discouraged, where endless polish and making things perfect can feel like it supersedes the need to realistically set deadlines and release something. Of course FNF is a much more complicated project than this port was (I made most of it in a few days, over the weekend I was at MAGFEST!), but I think despite that it was still very refreshing to see something through from the first line of code, until it’s in the hands of the public, on my own terms! And no one even noticed when we missed our deadline (Pixel Day!) lol !


Enjoy getting highscores on the new Newgrounds API enabled leaderboards 🤤

It was very fun to work on this, and I'm very glad to have a hand in preserving not just flash game history... but VIDEO GAME HISTORY, and being able to put the code out there for the world to see!


Back to the funkin offices now!

Hello there, I am a Toronto citizen, and I am a working adult. So, I drink coffee. It wasn’t always like that however. First… I didn’t always live here! And second, and more importantly, I only started drinking coffee about this time a year ago! I got myself a small French press for myself for Christmas, and a cheapo coffee grinder. Then I started poking around to different coffee shops in the area to get myself out of the house, especially earlier in the day!


Carbonic Coffee

37 Baldwin St, Toronto, ON M5T 1L1 


I’ll start with this one because it was THE first coffee shop that I ever went to in Toronto. I was on my way home and I was hunting around for a place to get some good god honest BEANS. Sadly I haven’t been back there since then, I need to change that! They had a deal at the time where if you get a bag of beans, they’ll make any coffee for you, I got a latte or something, and they made nice cute latte art of a seahorse! But I do recommend, super nice and lovely, the beans were damn good, and you can’t beat a good deal after buying beans! 


iu_1143174_5520715.webp


The beans I got were from The Angry Roaster Coffee Co. https://theangryroaster.com/ I got the Nicaragua ones, and they were pretty damn good.


The Grind Cafe

570 St Clair Ave W, Toronto, ON M6C 1A5


Go here and get a breakfast bacon sandwich damn it’s good. Very nice and lovely couple working there, I believe they told me they get their baked goods (breads/croissants/pasteries) from some local bakery… which I will have to hunt down…. But the breakfast sandwich is fuckin damn delicious and makes me happy to think about. The coffee is good too of course, I’ve been Starbucks cucked and be drinkin up on them caramel macchiato shiiiit… but the one here they do it right! 


Lait Night

81 Huron St Main Floor, Toronto, ON M5T 2A8


This one I don’t particularly recommend for the menu or coffee, but due to the fact that it’s downtown chinatown Spadina area, and it’s open until around 3-4AM-ish. It is very perfect for tossing a laptop in a backpack and getting out of the basement apartment at 1AM to sip on something warm, and sit with usually students working or studying. 


Recommended time to go is after midnight.


Rooms Coffee

135 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON M6J 2Z6


chiaotzu coffee shop. 

iu_1143175_5520715.webp


Go here and get the TOKYO FOG latte. I played chess against @snackers here and i beat his ass so bad his voice got busted for 3 days straight.


Boxcar Social Laneway

End of alleyway, 298 Markham St, Toronto, ON M6J 


Saving best for last… this is one of my fav places, and I save it for special occasions. Hidden away in a small alleyway, in an unassuming… chunk looking building… the inside is a bit of a classic beautiful cozy wood styled coffee shop. Often they play delicious vinyl records, and usually I treat myself when I go there and get the nice fancy POUR OVER coffees which I recommend. They give you the cute little pouring thing and cup for you to serve yourself and it makes me smile and grin whenever I’m there. I also think the matcha latte is nice there. I could spend a long time there reading or just hanging out on my laptop. Preferably reading though! Perfect time’s (in my opinion) is when it’s completely empty, with nice vinyl playing. One of the first times I went they were playing Kid A.

VERY IMPORTANT CLOSING STATEMENTS

If you are visiting Toronto from outside of Canada, you need to go to Tim Horton's first and foremost! You can't beat a fuckin 2$ coffee! Ask for the double double! Whenever I come back from visiting USA, I go to Tim Horotns before anything! I promise I'm not a coffee snob I am a Tim Hortons truther! breakfast lunch and dinner im drinking tim hortones!
