A Net Yaroze Postmortem and gamedev lessons learnt

In 2016, I spent most of my spare time hacking away with the old playstation, Net Yaroze.
You can see all my Net Yaroze blog posts here.

My previous experience with the Net Yaroze was back in 1999.
I bought it after seeing a UK OPSM (Official PlayStation Magazine) demo disc video saying it was discounted.

At the time I was a IT student (Computer Science), I started in software development, programming C, C++, win32/mfc/OpenGL and Java.
But I majored in information systems, ie Enterprise, in the mid/late 1990’s ERP products were all the rage!
It took me about a year to go through the manuals before actually starting anything substantial.
On my Christmas break of 2000 for 3 months, I was crunching hard, I remember being locked away in my room and actually looking forward to the start of uni!
I learnt how to master the clunky 3D formats and made a 3D side scroller demo, with animated block people, very much like minecraft.
