A Positive Post

I have felt that the last two posts have been a bit negative with not much to show for them, but this month has become a little more exciting. Having finished the development work on a bigger project at Troll inc, we started on new smaller projects, one of which (a game) which is nearly finished now, and the other (an app) that I am currently working to completion and will be finished soon.

It has been a time of working hard with a new core game system and even new software for me, we are developing the app in Xamarin Studio and the game in Unity using its built in 2D environment. Both the games will be released to the app store, the bigger project will be on Android and iOS and the smaller one only on iOS. More specific details of these will come closer to their individual release to the app stores.

My plan was to expand my portfolio, and through working on smaller projects, I now have a few more full scale projects to add to that list and more to come. It has been a very rewarding time for me to see games that I have worked on be played by others and the majority of the feedback being positive and no game breaking problems within the game. Im sure it will be more exciting for me when they are closer to release and they are open to full scrutiny.

My next step is to start developing a professional portfolio of all my work to send to potential employers and to start to really focus on my final year project at university. I will be looking to have a personal website full of games that I have been involved in making and a little extra information about me, including links to my contact information and online networks where they can find me. This will mean looking back into web development having not done it for a couple years.

I'm excited for the next months to follow, there will be a lot of hard work and a lot of pride to come from it, hopefully I will soon be able to share with you some more games that I have helped make.

March so far

My intentions for March have been to create some game demos to add to my portfolio of work, but in the process of thinking of new game ideas, I have started thinking of my final year project for university, I have since got an idea which I can see myself making next year and therefore I am writing a game design document for this idea. I will not be sharing this game on here yet, I want to keep this one for myself for now.

Although I am holding back a game idea, I still want to make some game demos this week and will look at least one demo done before the end of the month, its a big task for me, but I hope I can get this done. I have currently got two games that I would like to make demos of, and am looking to implement these as soon as possible.

Watch this space and bear with me while I figure out which game to make and write up documentation for my final year project. I will keep this one short.
