I'm Making A Game (Update 1.5)

Posted on April 25, 2014 at 1:55am 3 Comments

It's a point five update because I honestly haven't got much done since my last update. Part of that I blame on being sick for what seemed like the entirety of winter. I've also gotten distracted by other, non-game creation related projects a lot…

It took some time but I followed the talkie orb thing to its owner, a woman prisoner that looks very much like Angel. Tina summoned Roland again and we freed Angel. Then she transformed into a giant spider queen and we were forced…

I'm Making A Game (Update 1.5)

It's a point five update because I honestly haven't got much done since my last update. Part of that I blame on being sick for what seemed like the entirety of winter. I've also gotten distracted by other, non-game creation related projects a lot recently so in the rare instances where I do feel motivated to get work done it's on things like drawing or writing instead of learning C# and how all these new programs I'm using work. That all said my lack of progress is still largely due to…See More

8.7.xxxxIt took some time but I followed the talkie orb thing to its owner, a woman prisoner that looks very much like Angel. Tina summoned Roland again and we freed Angel. Then she transformed into a giant spider queen and we were forced to kill her. Roland once again being a HUGE help (sarcasm). You know, I'm no psychologist but I have a feeling that Tina blames Angel for Roland's death. The spider queen dead we exited the dungeon. Maybe I can finally shoot Handsome Sorcerer in the face now?…See More

7.31.xxxxI climbed the Battlements outside of the Handsome Sorcerer's tower today Diary-bot. On the way up I somehow managed to slay "The Darkness". Not sure what that's all about. I also slapped the shit out of that bastard King Jeffery after killing his guards Canine and Molehill. After that I reached the bridge leading out of Hatred's Shadow. I wasn't expecting Tina to just let me cross the bridge unmolested and she didn't disappoint. Handsome Sorcerer summoned the dragon Tina siced on us at…See More

7.25.xxxxI didn't leave right away Diary-bot. Wiztrap had some more tasks for me and despite my dislike interfacing with a robot that is vastly inferior to Deathtrap my inner completionist would hate me if I didn't do EVERYTHING before leaving the mines. Yay OCD!He wanted me to charge his magic wand. This required me to blow up a golem and shock a spider which were both easy enough. The last part was a little more difficult. I had to shoot a orc in the face after stabbing it with the wand.…See More

Dwarven Genocide As Self-Defense (Spoilers)

7.23.xxxxWell Diary-bot seeing as how the dwarves are trying to kill me on sight it seems only right that I defend myself and kill them first. Good thing too because Wiztrap asked me to "collect" some beards from some of the miners to craft a beard that fits his greatness (his words). He suggested that I get them drunk first. Unfortunately the previously mentioned issue of the killing on sight thing makes that kind of hard to do in the normal ways. Good thing I had the ingenious idea to make a…See More

Diplomatic Negotiations (Spoilers)

7.19.xxxxBefore entering the Mines of Avarice I opened a loot chest and you know what Diary-bot? It nearly bit my face off! Damn thing came alive and I had to kill it before I got my loot. Scared the bejesus out of me. Anyways we entered the mines and Brick won the roll to talk to the Dwarven King (why do we have to roll for everything?). I have a feeling this is going to end poorly given how he "solved" Sir Reginald's riddle earlier. I quickly discovered how right I was when Brick decided to…See More

Rant Incoming! (Spoilers)

7.10.xxxxGoddamn it am I pissed Diary-bot! First the stupid Queen wasn't at the stupid Tree of Life. Big surprise there. Then it turns out Davlin was the stupid Handsome Sorcerer in disguise all along. Which is, you know, whatever. I wonder what Tina was planning on doing if Mister Torgue stayed as the gatekeeper? Ah forget it! I'm too mad to think straight right now! Anyways he used the bloodfruit to summon the ghost king. Up to this point I had no problem. A little cliche but I wasn't…See More

A White Knight Appears (Spoilers)

7.9.xxxxJust a quick update today Diary-bot.Davlin and I reached another dead end and Tina said we had to wait till Roland got here before we could continue. Thankfully the others convinced her to come up with a different way to keep the story going. Some ruins appeared and Tina said we had to track down the White Knight in order to continue. As it turns out Tina made Roland the White Knight so we ended up still needing him after all. I never met Roland myself but that doesn't diminish the…See More

Lions, Tigers And Treants, Oh My! (Spoilers)

7.7.xxxxI've been in some hostile environments before Diary-bot, like the girls locker room in high school, but when the very trees are trying to kill you it's hard to think of a place that's worse. The forest actually started off not looking too bad. Then Lilith had to say that the forest needed a more menacing name so Tina changed it and now the trees are trying to eat me! Thanks, Lilith. Normally I'm on your side but not this time. There's giant spiders too. I barely stand normal sized…See More

A Side Questing We Shall Go (Spoilers)

7.6.xxxxI figured that I should check on Mister Torgue before heading out to see how the stockades were treating him. Despite being locked up he was as loud and animated (or at least as much as you can be with your head and hands bound in place) as always and was ready to hand out side quests. But before doing so Lilith demanded that he prove he was geek enough to hang. Everyone else agreed, or in Mordecai's case didn't care, so it was decided that he would have to answer three questions to…See More

A Questing We Shall Go (Spoilers)

7.5.xxxxWalking around Flamerock Refuge it took no time at all to figure out what the main "plot quest" was going to be. The town's Queen had entered the nearby forest in hopes of restoring light to the world and no one had heard from her since. Obviously we are going to have to go track her down and restore the light to the world. The ominous tower of the Handsome Sorcerer (obvious Handsome Jack) that could be seen off in the distance is likely to be our final destination but for now we needed…See More

Bunkers & Badasses (Spoilers)

6.30.xxxxI nearly had a shootout in Sanctuary today Diary-bot! I was wandering around and as I was rounded a corner I bumped into a giant bandit! I was just about to summon Deathtrap and cut him into little bits when Maya walked up behind him and explained that he's a new Vault Hunter named Krieg. She met him at a train station a few days ago and apparently he saved her skinny butt. I'm still going to keep both my eyes and Deathtrap's sensors on him for a while though just to be safe.Other then…See More

I'm Making A Game (Update 1)

Earlier this week I finished up the last game screen mock up which brings me to the end of the concept art phase. For now anyways as I'm sure there will be more concept work to do later. My new goal is to get a very rough prototype up and running so I have something that can actually be interacted with. I expect this to take a while because I'm using programs I've never used before and I haven't programmed anything in yeeears. So it might be a while before I update my progress here again.…See More

I'm Making A Game

Actually that's been the plan for a while now I just failed to mention it here before. I did type up a development document, track down freeware programs to make it and finished the concept art work. Then I spent the last four months doing nothing. I recently came to the conclusion that my idea, while interesting, was waaaay too ambitious a project for me to undertake right now. I hope to revisit the idea sometime in the future but for now it's very much in storage.So why bring this all up now?…See More

Anticlimactic (Spoilers)

5.13.xxxxIt's over Diary-bot.I made it to Nakayama's ship, the H.S.S. Terminus, but not before Nakayama got his "secret" weapon Jackenstien ready for my arrival. It was really is just a messed up bullymong but just between you and me it was a little rough going. Between fending off loaders, waiting for Deathtrap to recharge and Jackenstien jumping on my head it took a few attempts to put the thing out of my misery.Then Nakayama showed up talking a big game. That was until he tripped, fell down…See More

Still Surrounded By Morons (Spoilers)

5.11.xxxxI'm pretty sure everyone is insane on this planet Diary-bot and I'm starting to think it's infecting me too.I managed to track down some of Nakayama's ECHO diaries and it's quite clear he has a serious man crush on Handsome Jack and not in a cute and endearing way either. More like a creepy stalker kind of way. I don't even want to know how he got samples of Jack's DNA. Thinking about it gives me the shivers. Ugh!Next crazy person on the list is Claptrap. He had me track down another…See More

EpicBattleCry - Will Dark Souls Sell Out Like Dead Space? [PLUS WEEKLY WRAP-UP]

Today, @Murdorain wants to know why big publishers don't care about core gamers? Is it inevitable that all franchises become watered-down vehicles for mass appeal?

Hands on from San Diego Comic-Con 2014

It's a truly odd year at the SDCC game wise(hence the non-gaming pic that was more exciting in all honesty). It truly is a vanilla year for games as bizarre choices and just an average effort of marketing is on display. From the recycled demo of Bayonetta 2 from the previous year to the complete absence…

EpicBattleCry - Are Next-Gen Consoles Boring Without VR?

@ADLangfield is bored and needs an infusion of immersion to liven up his next-gen experience. Will VR be the shot in the arm he needs and will he get his dose before succumbing to same-as-last-gen-itus? We break it down on today's edition of gaming's most brutal podcast!

I am still a big user of crowdfunding sites i have donated to a fair few games so far. From skull girls and grim dawn up to the more recent beasts fury.
