Infinity Loop: A Side Excursion into Random Generators

Some of you may know that in my day job, I’m a software engineer and have been programming using the Java language for over a decade. In that time, I’ve always wanted to play a bit with JavaScript and the web side of Java but never had an opportunity to do so until this week.

little-spaces-category-logoWith the creation of the Little Spaces and Brick by Brick products, I’ve wondered if they could easily be translated to quick, easy-to-use, online tools for a quick fix. Nothing as fancy as the cool generators at Chaotic Shiny, Seventh Sanctum, or whatnot – but useful in a pinch if you need a little inspiration on the fly.

Well, this week I had an opportunity to play with JavaScript a little and work some new Random Generators into the Moebius site. You might notice a new “Random Generators” category link at the top of the page. That’s where I’ll be putting any of the generators I come up with along with links to a few of the great generator sites out there (know of a good one? I’d love to add it to the list – leave me a comment!).

So far I’ve created three Little Spaces-inspired generators:

Shipwrecks and Fancy Meals offer a glimpse at two new Little Spaces products that are on the way soon. And Scary Basements was released back in October and is available now.

I would love to hear what you think of these generators.

  1. Are they useful?
  2. Should I work on a Brick by Brick: Doors generator?
  3. Would you like to see other Little Spaces generators?
  4. Any other random generator sites you’d like me to add to the list?

Honestly I think they’re kind of cool. 🙂 Hopefully you do too!
