This is the first project that I remember. There were probably others before it, but nothing really stands out before this.

My buddy and I got an Independent Study together in high school. Our goal was to write a video game. We harbored no illusions that it was going to be the best game ever or anything, it was supposed to be a project that taught us enough to move on to something else later.

Our chosen tool for this endeavor was Flash 4.0, back before Adobe bought Flash. I don't know why we thought it would be a good idea to do this. I think it was because we could let Flash handle all the graphical stuff and we could focus on the behavioral side.

I don't really remember much about how the project turned out other than we both learned a lot about what not to do.

Luckily, the teacher overseeing our Independent Study felt that the lessons learned were more important than the product, so we got high marks.
