Heres a miscellaneous dump of some stuff I’ve done lately, or stuff that I can be bothered to upload here.I finished a small looping animation for ‘Loop de Loop‘. Im insanely rusty with animating and this was my first time using adobe animate. Also, having my Youtube subscribers shoot up from under 100 to 15k+ over the last month has been baffling.
I participated in the Global Game Jam held at the AIE here in humble ol’ Adelaide last weekend. The theme was ‘ritual’ and I worked in a team with 3 super talented programmers, all of which I met at the mixer only hours before the jam. It was an amazing experience to say the least. We crafted a RPG of 9 levels with enemies that attack you, healing items and two alternate endings, all in under 48 hours! I hadn’t done pixel art in years, not since I used to own a copy of paint when I was 10 but I had a ridiculous amount of fun crafting pixel sprites for level tiles and objects. I think level design is my new addiction. Our team won the ‘Best Art’ award and we are all determined to continue working on the game. I would say more about what I learnt from the experience and yada yada, but I think a successful game jam depends on having dedicated and awesome team. You can download the awesome game we submitted right here and follow us on itch.io for news. Over and out!
