It is with great sadness that I announce that a former student of mine who was only 6 years old has died in a car accident. He is survived by his 8 year old sister and in addition to getting her a computer, I am making the game Princess Rainbowface for her that is based on D.’s Sandbox and Minetest. The game will feature battling monsters with Rainbow Magic which turns them from grumpy to happy. Also there will be quests and bosses and even the ability to ride a Unicorn and/or Rainbow Dragon. I will be posting more about the game at PrincessRainbowface.com
If you are interested in helping out on the project, even if it is just ideas, please post in the forums.
I absolutely adored this kid, he was sweet as could be and unlike most kids who greet me with superfan like enthusiasm he’d greet me with a calm cool collected “Hey Mr. Mike” like we were old school chums, but he was only two feet tall. He has an older sister which I intend to help as much as they let me and suggestions on ways I can help are certainly welcome. They loved each other very much and honestly it just floors me imagining the pain her and her family will have to go through with that void now in their lives.
