Today is the 6th of March which means that it’s Michelangelo Buonarroti’s birthday. Happy birthday, Mike!
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born on March 6, 1475. In his lifetime, he created many of the world’s most famous works of art, including the famous statue of David and the Sistine Chapel Ceiling. He also designed great works of architecture such as the Medici Chapel and the Laurentian Library.
I’m telling you, they just don’t make artists like they used to.
In honor of Michelangelo’s birthday, “Michelangelo: The Game” will be free for the next three days.
You can get the game here on iTunes!
It’s February 14th. Valentine’s Day, my birthday, and also the day that Michelangelo, my iOS / HTML5 puzzle game, was released on the iTunes App store! It’s available now for the low, low price of 99 cents.
See screenshots of the game here.

During the development of my game Michelangelo, code-named Glass, I used Twitter as a sort of lightweight development diary. It was a fun little exercise that encouraged me to reflect on my development process as I was making the game. It also got me into contact with people who knew more about PhoneGap than I did which proved to be really helpful during development.
So, for the curious, here’s a descending chronological list of Tweets I made while developing Michelangelo:
Anyone who’s been following my Twitter account (@nobunagaota) will have seen me posting a regular stream of obscure and hopelessly geeky tweets tagged #glass. For my latest project, I decided to use Twitter to log my thoughts during development. Those tweets are posts regarding my current project: a mobile puzzle game called Michelangelo written in HTML5.
