Github Game Jam

Long story short I quit my dayjob. So I’m looking for work and freelancing again, but also participating in the Github Game Jam. It’s like NaNoWriMo but for game devs, and with a loose topic. This year it’s Hacking/modding/augmenting.

So I’m going to do a game based off the little women retelling I want to do. It’ll be put together sort of like making a movie, in the sense of, this is my very vague, very loose series of steps:

  • reread little women
  • take notes
  • outline story plot & dialogue
  • make sprites
  • game mechanics
  • mush them together into something
  • port

If I remember I’ll update here with progress as this continues.

The Future

Dream job didn’t pan out, and the Ruby Academy was cutting it too close to moving for my sanity, so I decided to go to plan C….

Which is basically do more of my own thing, quietly. But maybe not so quietly.

I recently snagged a Nerd Deal bundle full of game dev and game design courses, which means I have something to do in preparation for the April Ludum Dare!

This also opens up time for me to actually work on those Ruby projects I’ve been sitting on….

After I move I’m looking forward to getting back to making shit again – learning Ruby and javascript (again, for real), C# and Unity and game design and how to make game art, doing several game jams, and making more comics – maybe FINALLY making the comic hosting alt I’ve been wanting to exist for ever.

Making the thingsĀ I want to see in the world is what I’m basically about anyway.

 

In the meantime, you can find me playing (and possibly streaming) Destiny.
