Which also means I’ve completed the October Challenge!  Woo!

I’m Back!

I’m back to working on games full time!  Actually I have been since the beginning of September and I’ve already finished 2 prototypes, an entry for Ludum Dare 33 (Face Puncher) and an entry for Mini Ludum Dare 62 (Rainbow Dragon Slayer).  I’m also currently working on a third one, a Rocket Racing game (untitled at the moment), for the October Challenge 2015.

I’ve switched to using Unity and wow has it made the difference; so many headaches of programming things from scratch with LibGDX are just taken care of for you.  Plus the ability to prototype quickly and modify variables on the fly means you get to spend time on the more important stuff rather than number bumping and recompiling.  I’m also hoping to play around with Game Maker Studio and Unreal Engine sometime this year.

A main focus of mine with this attempt at full-time game development is visibility.  I really want to get the stuff I make in front of people as soon as possible.  I’m trying not to be a ghost, so I’ll try to post or at least Tweet about progress or when I start a new project.  Also I am going to get a Twitch stream up of my development, too.  I’ll post a stream schedule and link when that is all good and ready.

That’s it now, you’ll here from me soon kids!  Til then, keep it interesting.
