The website for our game FIREFIGHT! has launched. It has been a lot of work but so worth it. I touched everything from logo design to line height and danged near everything in between. Writing content was perhaps the most difficult part. For a while now I’ve been working on my visual design chops but writing for an audience is a much more recent turn for me. It’s tough! I have an improved but not new respect for those who do it every day.
Back when I was a systems administrator I maintained a Drupal install. The Acquia team does it better than I did or could do today.
Some parts of the process were painful. Working with the built in rich text editor proved difficult and a majority of the time I worked outside of it using apps like TextMate, Espresso, and the amazing CSSEdit. Along the way I picked up a few techniques like editing live within Firefox with Firebug to do rapid prototyping. I think there’s a blog post or two in there somewhere.
Anyways, check out the site and let me know what you think. Feedback is always appreciated.
