So yes. It has been a LONG time since I’ve posted anything. But I do have a good reason. Mainly is that I went away to Sydney for a while and then I started a new game project that took longer than was intended.

But said game project is now done. So I am very happy to present to everyone my game “The Elephant”.

So what is this game? Well the inspiration of this game was comedy sketches. I wanted to see if I could make a short comedy game of about 1-5 minute length in a week. Now obviously it took me about 3 weeks to complete. But the challenge was a simple comedy game made in a week. I might do something like this again in the future so hopefully when I do so I will be able to get much closer to the one week goal.

 

Second thing that I’ve done recently is a poster for RMIT Music and their next concert. I didn’t post it when I finished it as I was waiting for them to post it onto their official page first.

Third is another commission I did recently for a friends pathfinder character. I am pretty happy how this drawing came out. I am happiest with the lighting with all the stars flying of his magic. In terms of things I think I could have done better I feel as though it probably doesn’t have as much contrast from the inky black areas to where the stars a illuminating things.GeordieCharfinal.jpg

So, I had a job interview recently and I decided to make a game about job interviews.

Fortunately mine went much better than in the game but still, I saw an opportunity to be silly and I took it.

So without any further ado, I give you Job Interviews Suck.

So a little bit ago I decided while I didn’t have a proper game design job I should keep making personal projects in the meantime. Rather than my game design skills languish and go to waste.So I decided was that I should make short simple (mostly comedic) games that I could pump out every week or fortnight.

And this is the first of these games.

It is called Boring Game and it was inspired by Ubisoft and the whole Assassins Creed: Unity fiasco with them saying women were just too hard to make.

Hope you enjoy!

Coffee

This was my final assignment for Narrative Communications this semester. We were told to create a twine story using the narrative principals we had learnt throughout the semester. And this was my approach to the task.

I find often in games media currently there is an obsession on making things as dark and moody as possible. One could argue that this trend is the game industry trying to convince everyone how mature games are now. I do think this is the case, but I also think there is some work being done that is dark to make an artistic statement. Whichever case a piece of media may be it’s not exactly my style. I generally prefer to do something lighthearted and silly. One day if I practice enough I might be able to create something lighthearted and silly while still getting a message across. But in the mean time I guess I should just try to write silly stories of people severely overdosing on coffee.
