Virtual Sumo > Virtual Sumo

Virtual Sumo is a computer game I spent a lot of time developing over the course of two years while living in Japan. Since moving back to the U.S. in late summer 2000 and getting a Real Job I haven't gotten around to working on it. I am now planning to get back into it as time (and wife/2 kids/full-time job/too many hobbies) allows. I've learned much and developed many skills (Photoshop, Flash, design, Object Oriented Programming, etc.) in my job as a web developer that I hope to apply to future versions of Virtual Sumo. First off I plan to develop a Flash version and see where that goes. Being in the web development field, I'm also interested in a web-based game, possibly multi-player...but, one thing at a time.
