Starting my Journal

Sign in to follow this  


I'm restarting my journal...not like I had anything before restarting,

I have released a game, I am continuing to work on a few other projects and I am searching for a job. Other than that I think the newest things are I am done my finals and life has been pretty plain haha.

The game I released I have named "Bounce". It's a simple game idea I have been sitting on and did not get to it until now cause of my other projects getting in the way. Now, I have had the time to develop and release it on Android. You can find the game here. Under my account I also have my other app "3D Cubpix Live Wallpaper". Another app that I was involved in the past year was Quicklinkt. Back to Bounce though, I came up with the idea while thinking of a single player pong game. Making pong single player would just be boring but I believe I have put enough of a skew on it to make it amusing wink.png.

One of the other projects I am working on is a 3D fighting game. It is just me working on it at the moment but I would love to get an artist and another programmer on board. I have always been a huge fan of Soul Calibur but there was bits and pieces of the game that felt really off to me. I decided that I wanted to make a game kind of like Blazblue where characters are giving off a really unique feel. I have a lot of the game's core built, all in C++, SFML and OpenGL. I am planning on working on the combat systems next with a large portion of it revolving around online gameplay.

Finally, I am looking for a job! I am starting an automotive service tech program in my city but it does not start until september. In the meantime I would like to make some money. I worked for over a year at Display Systems International in Canada. I was hired when I was 18 as a C++, OpenGL and web services developer. I had to quit because of time conflicts with University and I am sure they would take me back but I have a "been there, done that" feeling and I would rather work in the automotive industry where I am starting to move in to.

Just trying to get better with my writing skills! Something I have never been fantastic with. If any of you have suggestions for books or websites to work on my marketing skills, I need help on that too! Also follow my on twitter! I am trying to post more and more of my up to date development info @John_GameDev.
