I am a game industry veteran of 19 years. Game programming and game design. I've worked on some really high profile stuff over the years. I love chatting about gamedev and design.
I also started playing guitar some years back. I've gotten pretty decent and am trying to make music now. I am a huge metalhead and can laser target recommendations.
Global warming is going to end human civilization. We've lived through the best of times and it will only get worse.
Been quiet lately but have been making good progress. With Unity workflow clicking for me, I've been able to speed forward. I have a data workflow that allows me to define a bunch of game data in google spreadsheets and then export to json for direct import into the game which is going to make tweaking and iteration far quicker. I am also close to being done the first game loop.
It turns out using mind-mapping software (I am using Mindmup) to generate free-form ideas, and then feeding them into flowcharts (using DrawIO) has been absolutely wonderful for helping crystalize design ideas, which I'm then feeding into a clear design doc (Google Docs)
My entire flow works via google drive, and it's surprisingly effective.
I reviewed the new album from Kvelertak's drummer. Spoiler: it is good!
My first album review. If you like post-metal, do not sleep on Esoteric Oppression by The Moth Gatherer.
I posted too soon! these patches cover all pronouns! So if you like battle jackets, these are for you!
