Losing a Day’s Work

Fuck-nuggets.
Imagine building something wonderful only to have it be unexpectedly knocked down. This was the 9/11 of team Rukh. Let me indulge you. There I was, just finishing what might be the best piece of design work since the pyramids or my Scrum document, when suddenly an update eviscerated my work and took my dreams with it. Some say it was an inside job as it was my lead artist who applied the update, however I assure you this was […]

Which talk should we pick?

One of our still-secret but crazy-awesome speakers is just blasting ideas at us – they have pitched no less than 4 excellent talks so far!
We love them all and can’t seem to pick one! Please help us decide by voting in our poll:
iFrameResize({ enablePublicMethods: true, minHeight: 230 })
Thanks for weighing in, and please check out all the conference sessions so far!
Oh, and a pro-tip: Visby is fast running out of hotel beds for the conference dates. Please make […]

Blog 4: Modular branches

In the previous blog entries I have talked about character animations and sprites for different background elements. In this fourth blog entry I will be talking about something a bit more critical for our game Echo.
This weeks feature is branches. Since our setting for the game takes place in a tree, a very important aspect to consider was creating a path for the player. Our team decided that this was to be done using branches. We were to draw some […]

Background: The Light Night

Hello, today I’m going to talk about my aesthetic choices when making a background for our game. The environment in our game is depicted as made of stone with some rare trees here and there.
For the atmosphere of the background I inspired myself from the background that is inside the tree right here:

The background I made will be seen because there will be ”cracks/holes” in this inside background. As you can see the mood here is dark but also has that […]
