Let’s Talk Ludum Dare!

Hello, I have BIG news to everyone who is interested in game development. Two words “Ludum Dare”.

Whats so big about Ludum Dare you ask? Well. It’s an online game jam. Anyone in the world can participant in this event. Each event run for 48 hours during the weekends, and are judged by the community. Ludum Dare events are held out only three times a year(April, August and December) with all new themes. Themes can range from anything vague such as infection, random, to more specific themes such as 10 seconds.  Games must contain the theme and are required to be explained through a documentation by the game developers.

Ludum Dare is an awesome way for you to show your off your passion for game development and not only that its a great community experience. It only happens three times so might as well join in. Don’t worry if you can’t make awesome fancy games! No judgment from the growing community, the community is awesome/friendly and they are people like you game developers! Thats the beauty of Ludum Dare. Make Games. Share Them! Have Fun! ;]

Ahhh I can’t believe I just found out about LUDUM DARE! missed out on so many events sighh, there have been already 29 events. The theme for the April 2014 was beneath the surface. Can’t wait to see the games that have been created!

Let’s talk Fiffy Shades of Grey

Hey Guys, so this week I’ve been reading the book 50 shades of grey ahaha, I’m just kidding I don’t read. Jokes aside, so this week I’ve been doing some work on enhancing my art skills. I’ve been learning on how to draw with values. Drawing with values excludes the use of colours and only uses shades. Shades are anything in between the range of complete black to pure white. So why draw with values? Well drawing with values is an essential skill for any artist. It makes the illustration process simpler as it divides the process of shading and colouring, not only that it helps reinforce the composition in your drawing.

So here are some of the work I’ve been working on. These images were all draw in photoshop.

Let us Unite with Unity

Hello Happy Easter! Okay, so its been almost 2 months since my last post on this blog, I apologize. I’ll give you a little recap on whats been happening over in my side of life, “University” that’s what has been happening for the past 2 months. So nothing much has been happening, just a lot of essays, programming with OpenGL, some theory studies on Game Development which is sorta fun and all, but it sure did take a lot of my free time which is a shame.

Well that was the little update on things. Here is the real content.

So, I was able to get in touch with an old pal of mine from Singapore and we united together to create a game using Unity. We started brainstorming many interesting ideas together, and ended up with a pretty solid idea. I’m not able to give you guys all the detail of the game, but the game is going to be an 2D arena platformer, a rogue-like. The theme of the game is Mutation which involves the character to mutate to interesting things as the level progress.With a high risk high return system. The games that we got influenced from was, Super Crate Box, BroForce and Battle Block Theatre.

I’ve been working on the character side of the game, and my partner has been working on the enemy side of things. Here is a sneak peak on the programming side of things.Note that there aren’t any art assets present at this moment.
