I have been working on the chain broke steadily for just about 8 months and I have finally made it ou of alpha!!!

What does that mean?

well, it means that I have a finished game. A buggy, narratively broke, kinda boring game, certainly, but a finished game none the less. I could release this game tomorrow, if I wanted to, I don’t though.

I am going to be spending the next 5 months, getting the game into BETA and polishing it to near perfection.

does it fit

I have been working on the game for a while and I have finally reached the final chapter of the development, which means I have to figure out what the inside of a massive AI looks like.

This is turning out to be more challenging than I thought it would be, as I have match something glossy with the rest of the game.

I am still working on it, trying to make the game make visual sense, but it is not as easy as one might think it would be.

The Monsters of NGC

Last week I had the pleasure of going to the Nordic Game conference (NGC) and I had a great time.

I have been going to NGC for almost 5 years running and every time I have fun, so that it was a great experience did not surprise.

However, most of what you end up doing at these conferences is listening to talks or networking. So, when I was not networking (which was most of what I did while there) I was fidgeting with my notebook while listening to a talk.

I drew these monster for each talk that I attended, for what reason I cannot say. This was something to do while the talk was going on and honestly, it was pretty fun while I was doing it.

So I hope you enjoy these moster that were roaming around my head as I was roaming around NGC.

Nordic Game jam

So, for those of you who have been following this dev blog, you will know that I went to Nordic game jam a couple of weeks back.

At the time I made myself a promise that I would put the game on the shelf for a couple of weeks before I played it again. I made the deal with myself that I would share the game if I found merit in the game when I played it once more and luckily I played it again and through “This is pretty OK”

So here is the game finally, I hope you enjoy it: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/693008

need a pick me up?

 

So, I have reached the middle part of development, the part where I have s much development in front of me as I have left behind.

This is the part where the project is more or less in tatters and social engagement or just life have caused me to have less time fixing the mess that I have made.

At times like these you really only have you conviction and your commitment to the project to keep you going and that can lead to a feeling of general malaise.

I have something that eases the unease at times like these; a small tool which temporarily makes me feel a bit better. it is my emo playlist.

These are songs that help me feel better and let me know that it’s going to be ok, even if the whole project seems a bit hopeless.

These are some of the tracks:
