Hello, my name is Pierre Chanliau.

Anyhow, I'm a sophomore in High School learning the ways of computer programing such as Web Design and Visual Basic.

Personally, Visual Basic can burn.

Now, truth be told, I'm not the most hardcore of gamers. I don't have enough money to update my PC for the more recent games. However, I do have an Xbox360, but I usually don't buy games due to the lack of money and just rent them...

I do play games like Team Fortress 2 on the PC and Left 4 Dead on the Xbox360, however I don't know where Left 4 Dead went off too...

Now, if you already couldn't tell, I'm a Valve fan and was one as soon as I was sucked into the Half-Life series playing the second one for the first time...

Well, I hope to have a good time here on Destructoid and meet some cool people.

I'm currently trying to make a game. Point and Click adventure perhaps?

Report - Day One

* This is a mock menu screen.
Click the image for a larger one. Apparently it wouldn't fit.

I'm currently in the process of making a Point & Click Adevnture sort of game, maybe even a shooter. I actually had the idea while deciding what I'd do for my Computer Programming project at the beginning of the year. Still in the process obviously since the game's development pretty much started a few days ago.

I have the basics of the story down in my head and just merely need to put them on paper. Right now I've begun making the main character of the game, however it's merely a diagram at the moment which I have a question about.

I'm more or less leaning towards B, but I want to see what you guys think.

I also had an opening theme for the game made in Garage Band, however I have no idea of how to convert it to MP3. It currently stuck on iTunes and I'm not very familiar with that...help?

Anyway, I'd very much appreciate it if you guys could give me some criticism, suggestions or tips for a beginner?


I'll also post the process of my portfolio website later this coming week.

Again, criticism, suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

So I wake up to find that School is delayed for a whole two hours due to snow and that the bus will actually pick my friend and I up at around 9 o'clock. My friend and I go to the bus stop a few minutes just in case.

We're there for over an hour getting wet from the melting snow and the bus doesn't show up. So, my friend decides to call another friend who's ahead of us in the bus' route. He hasn't gotten picked up either.

We go back home to call the School asking them were the buses are. All they can say to us is "They're a little late." So my friend and I said "Fuck this shit." and stayed home since we'd only have around an hour or two of school anyhow.


And I actually wanted to go to Computer Class.

I'm getting a drivers license...then a car...

Firstly, I'd just like to say hello and that's it's awesome to finally join the site. Been scouting it for quite some time and finally decided to join.

Hope to have a good time here and meet cool people.

Anyhow, I'm in the middle of a Visual Basic project for Computer Programing and our teacher assigned us a project to make a game of sorts.

I was going to try and make an adventure game of sorts, but I think that would of been a bit overcomplicated for a program I'm not to familiar with.


So, being the unoriginal person I was at the moment, I decided to go with a checker game.

Everything in there besides the checker was made in Photoshop. Got the checker off of google images...hehehe...

Anyhow, I haven't gotten time to program much of it yet since our teacher is having us do exercises so that we don't go into it completely blind.


Also have some checker pieces and the board.

Now, I tried putting on of these custom made checkers on the menu, but they didn't fit with it too well, so I decided to go with a real checker piece.

Also got the checker board.

Bit boring at the moment. Trying to fix that.

Lastly I got the play button.

Well, again, I hope to have a good time here and update the development of this little project and maybe some of my own.

Also, the closest tag I had for this was indie since this is technical a Indie videogame...hehehe...

Criticism welcome.



Noticed that the images for the Dtoid upload stretch them for some reason, so I went with another image uploader, hope that doesn't cause any trouble.

Also love the confirmation message for deleting an image, lol.
