So now that university is over for another semester, I can get back to working on awesome things like GAMES. So here’s a recap of everything that happened in the last 3 months.
This was pretty awesome (getting to work with Andrew Brophy and all). We made a game called “Old Man Baby” and it turned out quite nice (and Andrew remade it in Flash). I plan to release the engine from this as a rapid prototyping 2D game engine so expect a blog post on this soon.
Ludum Dare 23
Harry hosted the 23rd Ludum Dare in Melbourne, which my university team and myself filmed for our major video project and yes, we had a film subject in a games course.. You can watch the documentary below.
Andrew, Matt, Josh and I are sort of working on a game for this as well, although at this point we probably won’t be anywhere near complete at the deadline. Oh well, long term projects! :D
In case you missed IGDA last night, Andrew Brophy and myself are running a TigJam here in Australia. It’s completely free, so if you like making games and you’re in Australia (or crazy) you can register at http://www.tigjam.com.au/.
I think that pretty much covers the last 3 months. I’m going to try and actually get back into making blog posts now that university is out of the way for another 2 months!
SIDE NOTE: I just realised that all the things that happened in the last 3 months are game jams. This is awesome.
