finishing up

The game “scarred” that I have been developing over the last 8 months or so is finally rapping up and this will be the biggest project that I have ever followed through to completion.

This means that this project is the first time I get into some hard Debugging and creating those finishing touches that takes a game from amateur to polished and they are more than a little difficult.

I am currently working on a good credits sequence that honours everyone that has worked on the game, which is why I am doing the kinds of portraits you see above.

Sinister Livingroom

I haven’t really worked with the colour red for the vignettes, so I wanted to create an indoor scene with that colour as a centrepiece.

I also wanted to create some modernist furniture, however, the combination of those two elements mean that the game came out looking just a bit more sinister than I thought it would… I still like it though.

Nature scene

I don’t usually work with nature scenes, mostly because I usually don’t do well with them. Never the less I decided to try something out today.

I think this particular vignette shows some promise, which is good because the shadows of a universe in which these vignettes exist is starting to take place. 016

Vignettes

I have been enjoying the summer as of late and as a part of that I have decided to start each day with these 1 hour vignette challenges. Unlike most of my projects, these vignettes don’t have a project that they are attached to, rather they exist independently of one another, but in the same visual universe.

I don’t know if there is a game here, but there might be, for now I am just having fun in blender 3D

Finally out of Alpha

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.

Update on development

one of the major problems with development, is the amount fo work that is required to make anything work.

Truly any and all things take a herculean amount of effort and no matter how many games you have made previously, you always end up under estimating the kind of work that is required of you.

That is why I have not been updating the blog in a couple of months, not because I have not been working (believe me, I have been working), but because the amount of work that I had ahead of me was kind of staggering.

I am happy to announce that I am almost ready with the beta of the game and while it is still somewhat boring, the game is looking up.

I have given myself 5 months to get from somewhat boring beta to amazing and fun release.

for now though, I just have to work and work and work until I have a finished game.
