BGP: A Ray of Hope

I need to stop forgetting to make posts about this.
As things are I am working on assets for the game levels bathroom. While I am having difficulties with two points of the assets (the bathroom stalls) not wanting to keep their faces when I import them to texture them that I need to solve this week, I have finished the ground color of the sink and the toilet themselves.


Next point of interest would be to find tutorials to […]

Neon Skies – Week 3

Week 3 focused on creating a fast 3D sketch of the drop pod that the players will come down in. However, due to me having to travel away, we decided that it was better to start work on something that would take a longer time that I could work on independently for extended periods, as such we started work on the mining drones.



In the beginning we were going for a very robust style on the drones with 4 […]

Big Game Project: week 3

Time to bring this blog back to life now that me and six others are making a game that is to be presented at the upcoming Gotland Game Conference (GGC). The game is called “A Rat Betwixed” or just simply “Betwixed” as its full name was considered too long for a title. It takes place in the far future in a post apocalyptic Sweden where people has regressed to a socity that is similar to the medival age. It is a […]

Neon Skies – Week 2



In the beginning of this week, we realized that the bow we were making was a lot more high poly than what we wanted. Instead I found an old concept art the team had made and finished it quickly so we could get at least an alpha version.
As it currently is, it is too small, the version on the right is a scaled up x5 version in Unity, I will early next week go back and fix the […]

Neon Skies – Week 1

First official week of the Neon Skies project is now finished.
During this week I have been working on getting the neon crystals into the game.

It did not work out as well as I wanted, I had some issues getting the maps to work properly and it’s possible that it will be revisited later to get the polycount down. Then I could also work on getting the shape more along what it should be.
The coloring is 100% a single smart […]

New in Reader: Combined Cards

If you’ve ever followed a frequently updating site in Reader, you may have noticed a problem. When one of your followed sites goes on a posting streak, it can easily overwhelm your stream, causing you to miss posts from less frequent sites.
Today we launched a new feature to alleviate this problem: Combined Cards. Now, when a site you follow gets prolific, we’ll combine those posts into a single card — provided the posts are all from the same day and uninterrupted by posts from […]
