Step Counter

Making the step counter was easy in the sense of that there are many various sources of documentations and blog posts of people receiving help in these kinds of problems. Our game went through so many changes that in the end it became a type of activity app with a Tamagotchi experience tied to it. The activity part was necessary in our opinion because we wanted to set our game apart from the many apps that was similar to the […]

hello world, again

So I’ve yet again remade this website. This time I’ve moved from jekyll to hugo, because I’ve had to reinstall ruby far too many times and there’s always some issue with it preventing me from just getting it up and running so I can update this site. Hugo is just a binary, no need to install anything to get it to run. It’s far less of a hassle.
If you for whatever reason want to see the old posts (which were […]

Designing our Critter

At the time of writing this, CritterFlux has already been presented at the Gotland Game Conference and we received a lot of praise over our character design and artstyle. Our critter was apparently rather adorable! Although I would argue that the animations and movements of the little creature also added to the overall cuteness-factor. So was the successfull appearance of our critter a fluke, or did we actually put some thought into all of this? You be the judge as […]

Animating Deino

It’s funny, because when I fist opened and ran the program Motionbuilder, I was horrified at what greeted me on the screen. So many options, so much to learn, so many windows… It was a daunting task to say the least. I’ll be honest, I didn’t do too well on the course that was meant to teach us animation in 3D. I had a difficult time keeping up and I was really struggling getting used to the software. Funnily enough, […]

Presenting a Game

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my two years of studying game development, it is that necessity is a harsh but highly efficient tutor. There is a hint of desperation in the struggle as a developer to meet each game-asset’s individual needs and requirements, under constant time pressure. Now, it may sound as if I’m not too happy about this process, but in fact, at risk of sounding like some sort of masochist, I love it! Necessity forces me […]

I detta blogginlägg tänkte jag skriva om hur spelet ligger till en veckan innan GGC och vilka förändringar som vi har gjort i designen. Vi har ändrat på craftingensystemet, grundtanken var att spelaren skulle kunna byta mellan olika ”recept” för att bygga olika proteser och dessa olika proteser behövdes sätt på rätt skada kroppsdel för att fungera. Eftersom det är så lite tid kvar och vi har fortfarande ingen vinstskärm eller tutorial nivå till GGC väljer vi att satsa på […]
