I’m stealing the Windows 8 color palette.
And all I did was choosing a green that goes well with white foregrounds and move the hue.
Oh I get it. It’s complicated design. From Microsoft.
This very simple thing is now on github. Throwing stuff on github for the sake of it! Hoory.
Okay folks. I know this isn’t a very good introduction for a “new” blog, but I’ve made up my mind. I’m giving up on Flux. This isn’t due to a lack of time or knowledge, but a lack of motivation. I find myself constantly criticizing myself about how I’m not able to get anything done. It is even hard to even start such a huge system without a lot of experience – and lets face it, I don’t have that kind of experience. I always canned projects when they required too much effort while having big ambitions, it just doesn’t add up for me. I need to start working on small-scaled projects.
But this is not the only concern with Flux. The most striking is: Who will use it? Would publishers really give up on the amount of control they have over us and invest in more distributed systems? Not without a lot of publicity and attention, which brings me to my second issue.
On a recent talk, Gabe Newell, Co-Founder of Valve Software hinted at making parts of Steam, particularly the store, decentralized, becoming “more like a network API”. Kinda like Flux was supposed to do. How can I even imagine to compete with Steam? I’m not sure if it’ll come with a lot of strings attached, I don’t really think Valve would give up a lot of control over their core system. But if they come close to what I had envisioned, then I will, for once, welcome our new PC gaming overlords.
