A personal Game Development story
(very lazily updated)
I’m writing this while procrastinating calling the coroner’s office. It won’t have much if anything to do with games or development, but seeing as I’m pretty sure the majority of people who end up reading this are friends and loved ones this feels like a more appropriate space than a social media account. Words I… Continue reading Something of a personal nature
Todays online journal topic was inspired by Angel, my lovely wonderful partner who couldn’t give two petrified rabbit droppings about the benefits of bit shifting. Hilariously, as I’m writing this Angel sits down beside me and all interest was lost in what I was doing purely from the title alone. Speaking of that inspiration… so… Continue reading Genre Agnostic Systems
My general plan for January was pretty simple: Take some time off around Christmas, take my concepts and initial idea-proving work and come back at it refreshed and full of energy and pep!

I’m making a new one!

It’s a rough time; a collision of poor governmental policies (regardless of political party in power) and some real serious immediate global threats is leaving everyday life a little extra tense. Except… Continue reading When to take a break
I feel I’ve tied up the most dangerous and experimental ideas for Read Play Game (feel free to try the Demo!), so I feel the risk for my small first independent project is nice’n low. That feels good! Experimental like the interplay I wanted between the Standard (coming soon?!) and Demo version, taking advantage of… Continue reading Read Play Game: So Close!
Words/phrases can get adopted as jargon and begin to mean many different things depending on who you ask.

When it comes to game development in my brain I’m rooted in the catch-phrases of… Continue reading Unexpected but lovely consequences
