Various and sundry updates
A quick update of what I have been to for the past few months.
- I currently work at cebas Visual Technology
- I have done a bunch of work with Minionworks Games on Karst
- I've developed a deep addiction to Perlin noise (seriously, do they have rehab for this?)
- I made a game! It's called Red Chasm, and is a puzzle-platformer set on Mars. It's FREE! You have no excuse not to play it. You can play it in your browser, or download it for Windows/Mac from the Minionworks website. You can also download it off of Indie DB. People seem to like it, which is good.
Those are all the big things. Smaller, day to day updates can be found over on my twitter feed.
Ta-ta for now.
Due to an oversight on my part, you may run in to a version-related error with the unity player when attempting to play Bricks. I built it in a new developer preview version of Unity, which requires a newer version of the Unity web-player to run. Unfortunately, because I am taking advantage of a few of the new features I cannot downgrade very easily. This means that if you would like to play Bricks, you are going to need to install a beta version of the webplayer, or just wait until the 3.5 update is officially released (it shouldn't be too long until the official release).
In which a small game is made
I made a game! Ok, so it's not the next Gears of War, but given that I have spent only around two full days making it, high quality was never the goal in the first place. This was a project designed to take a concept from start to finish under a time-limit, and on that front I think I have succeeded.
Watch this space for Bricks 2: Bricks Revenge, where the bricks have had enough and start fighting back!
In which I pimp my stuff
Hey guys! You should buy this book! I'm in it. Also, it's quite good, which is a nice bonus. But you should buy it mostly because I'm in it. (If anyone asks, this was my most convincing speech ever.)
