Introducing: A Diverse, Free Stock Photo Library

As many site creators know, it’s daunting to find images to represent the message you’re trying to put out into the world — especially if you don’t have the equipment or time to make your own.
At WordPress.com, we’re constantly striving to make it as easy as possible to create beautiful websites that represent who you are and what you stand for. We’re excited to announce that we’ve been working hard with Pexels and other diversity-focused image-library partners so that everyone […]

Postmortem

This project has been fun, but hard! We managed to make a functioning “shoot ‘em up” game. It is not the best game ever, and probably not the best version of Umibozu, but I am proud of what we have done. The art does not look that bad at all and it is indeed playable.
The whole process of choosing a design document, doing the pre-production, actually producing the game and to present the finished product has been a hell of […]

Playtesting

This blogpost is about the playtesting and how it affected our development. We had three playtesting sessions during this course. The playtests were very useful, and it was so good that we had the opportunity to test other games and to have our game tested. We got some really good feedback from our fellow students, and it was nice to see what the other teams were doing and how they solved some of their problems. It was also really interesting […]

Sharing Options from WordPress.com to Facebook Are Changing

We wanted to update you about an upcoming change Facebook is introducing to their platform, and which affects how you may share posts from your WordPress.com website to your Facebook account.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the tool for WordPress.com and Jetpack-powered sites that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? […]

this is about me

this is about me.
 
i was raised
in a pyramid of power,
in a circle of hatred and violence.
driven by ego,
fuelled by fear.
 
i was raised
homophobic, transphobic, sexist,
racist, carnist, elitist, capitalist,
etc.

all these absolutisms
governed the development of my brain.
formed my cognitive and moral foundation,
my thought patterns,
my language.
 
all these absolutisms,
in their own unique ways,
eventually led to loneliness.
 
but i realized,
i am not alone.
this circle of hatred and violence,
surrounds many
from an early, malleable age.
 
it’s really hard to break out of it,
and really easy to stay stuck.
as it inherently […]

Morning time has gold in the mouth as we say in Swedish

Good morning!
Today I will try to get some work done as well as some of the summer course I’m taking. I also got some help with my own little project yesterday so I am finally getting somewhere with that as well.
My project
Placeholder 3D for the game
So let me tell you a bit about my personal project that I am working on! I am so excited, both because of the fact that I am learning so much as well as I […]

Code

2018
Wow, a lot of things have happened since I last wrote here but I figured that I might as well keep on writing. Writing is always a good thing to keep up. So, what’s new is that I am no longer working with Penny’s farm. I started to learn how to program with C# and, to work on my own project while I have an extra job on the side to retain some income during the summer. I may also […]

ego vs. eco

ego is poison.
family is antidote.
if we all are a healthy family, certain members can be weak sometimes, without a problem.
cherish others FOR their weaknesses AND their strengths.
show your vulnerability.
when you feel like crying, cry.
don’t let it stew, don’t let it turn into violence.
show that you can’t always be strong.
and when you are, it is for them.
even if it is for you, it is for them.
because we are integral parts of each other’s lives and therefor each other!
try to show your […]

Blog Post 6. New.

It has been very fun to work with my group and to make assets for the game.
I am not so glad with the end result of the project. Our lead programmer has left the course and we had already over scoped the game before that happened so as a result many assets which were ready to be implemented into the final game were left out. This included the boss, the boss environment, all animations and 2 more enemy types and […]

The Project Starts

Group Raksasha chose “Fear is in me” as their project and it will be their first attempt to make a digital game until now. The story of the game is about a small girl who is having nightmares every night and her nightmares come true at some point. They chase her all the time and now it’s our job to save her. From the design decisions that the group made, they all came to the conclusion of not providing her […]
