Captain’s Log 09.30.2018 : Upgrading Unity

The latest change that has hit us is Unity 2018. I’d heard lots of good things about the new version, but the thought of possibly blowing up the game we’d been working on for the past 5 years nauseated me. I forced the team to procrastinate it until we knew exactly what would happen and had a plan in place. For an indie game design team, updating software can be risky because if it breaks the game, then the time it will take to fix it can be daunting. We were going from version 5.6.2f1 all the way up to version 2018, so it was a significant upgrade. We finally felt that the updates Unity made to the software merited taking the risk. It would put us on better footing for future releases when we serialize DANIKA DIRE, anyway. Sometimes, you just have to take the leap knowing that you have version control in place if everything goes nips up.

Captain’s Log 9.21.2018 : Striving

Today, I’m feeling a shift in the air. I recently did an evaluation of the work we have left to do on Chapter 01 to get it ready for Launch (capital L intentional), and I did what I do best: I made a spreadsheet. This kind of task management is at the core of Agile game design. We estimated the time it would take to do each task and divvied them up among the teammates. With this, I was able to make a ballpark guesstimate at when we might be finished.

Curtis hails from the great state of Illinois, by way of the bustling metropolis of Lincoln… a town he came to call home following his many storied years of accreditation at Western Illinois University, and many more less storied years of living in Macomb. While not having much in the way of formal training, Curtis has been drawing and doodling his way through life since about the time he could first wrap his fat little fingers around a crayon.

Captain’s Log: 09.23.2017

My thoughts for today… When you’re working on an indie game, in your spare time, progress can sometimes seem to crawl. But, I spent some time today looking back on where we started four years ago, and how much we’ve accomplished since then. We began with nothing more than a dream and some chutzpah. There […]

Strange News Reports from Ohmega

Hey everyone! I’m taking a break from a crazy semester of school to share something super cool. I think you’ll find it as interesting as I do. In fact, maybe you already heard about it. In any case, I’m taking a class on indigenous cultures of the Pacific North West, and while researching, I found this news story, and it has experts baffled. You know how I find this sort of stuff interesting. Unknown, unsolved, and unusual happenings. They’re all around, after all. Anyway, I thought it was really neat finding this and had to share.
