My game development habits - an overview

Posted by Shane C, 16 May 2014 · 567 views

So I'm a very weird, out of the norm game developer. I have been making games since age 11. So technically, I have about 14 years experience, and maybe 6-7 of those years active experience.

At the same time, when it comes to programming languages, I am a beginner. I think I can make Pong in most languages without much trouble. But that doesn't make me go...


Back to Journal Land...

I'm back to Journal Land. Please ignore my previous entries as they are old and outdated.

I've decided I will be expanding further on a game I made, called Agent Light.

2D Butterfly Art Image

Here is a piece of art I made for college:

I did a 2D Photoshop image using black and white and the shape tool and if I'm not mistaken, needed something that repeats.


Game I made

Posted by Shane C, 09 October 2013 · 813 views

I think it's about time I show you a game I made using Scirra Construct 2: http://games.softpedia.com/get/Freeware-Games/Block-Critter.shtml

I encourage you to download and give it a play.

Postmortem: I meant to get this game on iPad but lost focus due to technical difficulties and potentially, money. The artist I had do the work on the game used some...


Surprises and Plot Twists

Posted by Shane C, 08 October 2013 · 577 views

Luke was in love with Martini. She had beautiful hair dyed pink and bright blue eyes. He had dreams of marrying her.

"Can I have you for dinner?" asked Martini.

Luke had never been on a date before. He said, "Sure."

Luke spent all day preparing for dinner with Martini. He wanted to look his best. He wore a nice suit and rented a limousine. He rang the...


Today's theory

Posted by Shane C, 08 October 2013 · 527 views

Something which I noticed was that at least for 2D games, smaller resolutions are in theory smoother. At 320x240, you can move the same speed moving 4 pixels a frame as if you moved 8 pixels a frame with 640x480. With 640x480, you would "skip" 8 pixels, while at 320x240 you would "skip" 4. This is just an example. Thoughts?


I love ATI, but ATI doesn't love me

Posted by Shane C, 07 October 2013 · 423 views

There was something on my mind, and that is whether my next system should have ATI or NVIDIA graphics.

By the way, I am a technophile. The college I'm attending even has the word "technology" in its name.

Okay so I consider ATI's picture quality better than NVIDIA's, although it's close. I compared the two in the HD 48xx days. I have ran two NVIDIA card...


Art

Posted by Shane C, 07 October 2013 · 524 views

I will be starting the Major portion of my college, art, soon. I have made drawings before but they aren't very good, because of the low amount of time spent on them and my lack of knowing how to texture 2D art well, so I would be embarrassed to show them. However, I might make something good for one of my assignments, that I can proudly display. We'll see.


PC Laptops

Make sure you read all my journey entries if you got the time. I post a new one every 12-48 hours.

So today we will be talking about laptops for gaming and game development, and here is a real beauty for the price:

The PS4

Posted by Shane C, 05 October 2013 · 541 views

So in a little under a month and a half, I will be the owner of a PS4. I actually wanted a XBox One, even before they said retail XBox Ones will double as dev kits. However, the whole dev kit thing has made me want it even more. The problem was, everything went wrong possible so that I could not preorder a XBox One, due to availibility or other problems....
