Från ett café på Södermalm

Sommaren börjar gå mot sitt slut, nätterna börjar bli kallare och havet är inte lika inbjudande. Slutet på sommaren innebär för mig tillbaka till verkligheten. Den här sommaren har varit en mix utav jobba på Sam and Nicole och jobba med PR för A Small Game. Och det är inte slut ännu men det är mer som väntar under hösten.

Jag kommer inte återvända till Gotland och plugga utan jag har valt att läsa distanskurser från Umeå Universitet som kändes mer […]

Swedish Game Awards 2016

Sam and Nicole blev nominerade till priset “Best Diversity Effort” på Swedish Game Awards och vi kände oss så hedrade och exalterade! Jag, Tova och Rasmus packade ihop våra grejer och reste till Skövde för att ta del av mässan och galan som hölls den 10e juni.
Det var så sjukt kul att få ställa ut det igen och se hur folk blir berörda och vad för val de tar, det är så fantastiskt att kunna prata direkt med en spelare […]

Continuing

Saving in Unity!!
Including enemies!
Continuing where the last post ended. The version then lacked most of all was enemies, they where not included when saving. As such it is not an functioning system, but that will be mended.
There are three different enemies in the game and they have different properties that one might want to save, though there are some parts that they share such as position. This would result in a class for each type so they are easily separated […]

Saving in Unity!!
This is going to be easy, no problems at all! Right?
Surely it could be easy
Since I mentioned it in the last post I just had to continue with creating an saving function, it seemed like a very intriguing task especially since I had never done such a thing in Unity before and not really in any other kind of engine (self-made ones included). So making this would be a great step in the process of creating games, if […]

Big Game: Week 8

During the last week of the Big Game course, mostly small fixes was on the list. Stuff like;

text for the tutorial in-game,

as well as text for the menus.

Props for the final scene also had to modeled and textured, like the altar which can be seen in the print screen above. It was modeled in 3DS Max, as usual, and the textures were created in Substance Painter.

An example of the small props that I also created for this week was the lantern, […]

Week 6-8

Hello everyone!
This post will cover three weeks, and these in these three weeks we have finished the game for Gotland Game Conference (GGC), held a pitch for the jury and showcased our game at GGC. I also started on the final postmortem.
I will not go in great detail on the last week of production, but it was mostly adding a finishing touch on the level design, UI elements and the tutorial.
As we didn’t have that much time the tutorial was […]

Summertime 3D-fun: Part 1 – The Model

For a while now I have been working on Tim Bergholtz’s tutorial for an AKM 47 in 3DsMax (https://gumroad.com/timb) to learn more about hardsurface modeling techniques and the modeling-part itself is slowly being wrapped-up (going into 7,5 hours of UV-unwrapping-material wiee!).

So, because my memory is short and goldfish-shaped, what follows are some in-process pictures and notes taken on some of the more complex and new (for me) aspects of creating this model for future projects. The approach was to divide […]

Can a game make you sleep better? 2.0

Hello and welcome back to my daily blog-spamming!
 
It occurred to me that I haven’t talked a lot about the actual game we made during the project, except for the short introduction that I gave in this post. In short, Slumber is a game that is supposed to help the player sleep. It’s intended to be played on a smartphone or a tablet, in bed, before going to sleep.
In my last post I promised to explain what a nudibranch […]

Watercolour fish

Happy friday everyone!
 
In my last post I talked some about how to make the Slumber fish in 3D, including modelling, rigging, and animation. Today I’m going to talk a bit more about the same fish, but focusing on the textures instead! As an example I will go through the process of creating the juvenile Koran Angelfish below (credit to http://fishy-bizness.com/ for the picture). We chose to depict the juvenile version because it has a much more clear and readable pattern […]
