About 8 Bit

8 Bit Productions recalls the good old days of the 8 bit video consoles with their limited colour palettes and lo-fi sounds. They may have been limited, but those games did a lot with a little. I am a resource poor developer who just wants to make a few small apps that seek to do one thing, and do it well.

Oh, it’s got to be funĀ  :)

Available now

  • Currently I have The Magnificent Dice Roller for your enjoyment. It rolls dice. Like for role playing games. I recently discovered Fudge dice, so it does those now too.
  • Roman Numeral converter. I was trying to explain to my kids how Roman numerals work. Somehow I ended up writing an app to convert them into normal decimal numbers, and back again.

Under construction

In the incubation phase, I have a motorbike site for comparing bikes.

Also under construction is a BMI calculator. I know motorbikes are way more fun than BMI calculators, but I’m using that last one to get my feet wet in mobile app development. First I will do an HTML5 version suitable for browsing on mobile devices, then I will look at doing an actual stand alone app for devices. I’ll probably target Andriod first, then think about doing a iPhone version. Maybe an Adobe Air version too.
