Waves. That was a very broad theme. You can take it into a lot of directions. From physical, visual, to scientific. Heck, it quantum physics all particles are just wave functions waiting to collapse. Here’s a few sketches I had as we were brainstorming on the table. Not much made it into the final game, […]Read more "The Game, GGJ17 Post-mortem"
I didn’t actually remember it at the beginning, but we were actually at the same site as the first jam I attended years ago. It came back to me when I saw the escalator leading to the auditorium with chandeliers. Classy. I was prepared this time to have the whole weekend there. Clothes weighed down my […]Read more "The Jam, GGJ17 Post-mortem."
I went to my first game jam on 2013. It was within a year of finishing our internship so we decided to all join. For fun, and to test out what we learned. The plan was to stick it out for the entire event… but on the first night we got invited to the office […]Read more "Previously on: Global Game Jams."
I haven’t touched gameplay code in about 2 weeks. We’ve delayed the game’s launch by those 2 weeks. What have I been working on? Anything else but the game. I got stuck on iOS build iteration fixing ad networks. Half of the days just waiting for long compile times. This week I’m adding more online […]Read more "Why don’t we just make Games?"
Removing the barrier of worrying about my tools helps in getting my ideas and intents into the canvas more naturally. We have to learn to make them our own to direct our focus on improving ourselves. Speed and efficiency were one of the first few things I’ve learned because I had limited time to paint. […]Read more "Taking Control of Photoshop."
About a year ago, I stopped hoarding brushes and started focusing on learning how to use the favorite sets I had at the time. If there’s one thing I can recommend to do first, it’s getting a good set of starting brushes. Very concise sets to be specific. Not those artist brush sets that give you […]Read more "Brushes are (Not) Magic."
I didn’t look at any in-depth reviews of the movie before going to see it. I heard a few things in passing about how it’s another bad video game movie. I was even told to not bother with it because it was just ‘so bad’. I don’t know what people expect from video game movies, […]Read more "What the Assassin’s Creed Movie Did Better."
You can build for all the popular platforms, isn’t that just AMAZING? That same technology that enables you to reach all your target platforms will be the same ones that will come back and bite you. The truth is that it’s all hacky, magic, black boxes. I am pretty sure no single person knows how they […]Read more "More Platforms, More Problems."
We shouldn’t let anybody tell us what or what not to enjoy. I think everyone needs to be able to form their own opinions on the media they choose to consume. I like going to the kind of sci-fi movies that critics downvote to oblivion and are sometimes box office flops. To name a few: Transcendence, Lucy, […]Read more "Movies Are Awesome."
It’s a new year, why not try out something new? I posted about my intent to start a blog before and it got a relatively good response. So let’s get into it.Read more "Content Patch 2017"
