Website Redesign

June 29, 2011 by Terry

Welcome to the new Really Slick website.  It was probably overdue for a redesign.  In the past, this site had a list of news items that was updated periodically; it was mainly used for announcing new and updated screensavers.  This news section has now been expanded into the blog that you’re reading.  The intention is to continue with the old news items and also add some articles about the art and programming behind projects as they develop.

Originally, this website was created as the home of Really Slick Screensavers.  The savers aren’t going away, but now the site is also going to be home to other projects as well …starting with this blog.

The new website is mainly themed after a video game that I’m working on.  For a while I hesitated to use the star field background image; in general, I think background graphics on websites are too distracting.  But in the end I liked the look and the space game theme too much to throw it away.  The most important thing is that it doesn’t interfere with the site’s readability.

Your comments are welcomed, even if you despise the new site design.  Just please keep them clean 😉  It’s a family-friendly site.

    The new site looks great! I’d just wandered here to pull your screensavers to my most recent work box and discovered the slick new look.

    Consider me subscribed to your feed to await game, blog, and screensaver updates with bated breath.

    Terry, nice progress on the game! I’ve always been impressed by your work, and this just tops it all. Look forward to showing off the work from my boy Terry.
    I’m available for beta testing!

    Awesome work my favourite for the moment is the hyperspace.

  5. Hi everyone. You’re the first commenters on my blog! Thanks for all the encouragement (and the 5 bucks 😉 I think I finally got all the kinks worked out (comment spam protection, email notification, etc.). Now I can get back to work on the game.

    Will you be updating RSS soon? 😀

  7. Hi Ant. I have no plans to update Really Slick Screensavers anytime soon. Lately, I have just been working on Retrobooster.
