Becoming the temp

Last you heard from me I put out a release for the 10 week prototype. A pretty big thing has happened since; I’ve become a substitute teacher! I got contacted a bit unexpectedly from Tobias Solem, a teacher at IT-Gymnasiet (equivalent to upper secondary school in the US), who’d become ill and needed some one to take over two classes a week for a...

The 10 week prototype

And so it has come to an end. The 10 weeks me and Oskar had to create a prototype of a game has come and gone. But we did manage to create something, a game that was much more feature-complete than we initially thought possible. We really crammed the last stuff in before calling it done, though the plan was to release on sunday a couple bugs and...

Editor-ial

Click here to try out the latest version I mentioned in the last post that I created an editor to make it easier for me and Oscar to build levels for the game. Well, today I’m releasing a build that allows you to play around with it! It’s still a bit rough but it works. Just select Editor from the currently very basic main menu and you’re good...

The start of a puzzle

Working alone does take its toll, it can be somewhat demotivating to chug away at the project without much discussion or interaction with other people. So at the end of the last year I was given the opportunity to take in an intern for 10 weeks. More specifically Oskar Engholm, who’s studying technical illustrator (teknikillustratör) in Arvika. ...

Practice modelling

Fancy 3D-viewer, click/tap to load model (~10mb so give it a moment) So it’s been a while since the last post and even longer since I wrote about what I’ve been working on. So I thought I’d go into some detail on one of the things I’ve been focused on since then. As you might have seen in previous posts I’ve been doing a little bit of model...

Reboxing an usb hub

Is reboxing a word? It should be. While I was buying the previously mentioned USB game pad I also stumbled upon a small but terribly ugly USB hub. It was cheap so I got the idea to simply make a new case out of wood. Should be simple enough. The original ugly USB hub I gutted the case and pulled out the PCB. The idea I had in my head for...

Captivated by Fallout

I remember a thought I had while playing Fallout 3; what would happen if someone stumbled upon a large warehouse with unopened bottles. So many caps free for the taking but would that person just sit and remove caps all day? Me and my brother are both waiting impatiently for Fallout 4 to be released. As it was my brothers birthday yesterday I d...

Tagging along

I’ve been a pretty avid fan of Bandcamp for the last couple of years. It’s free to listen online and if I really like something I can buy it and get it DRM-free. And there’s a lot of mostly unknown but great stuff just waiting to be found but I’ve found it hard to sort it all out at times. Sure, it’s been possible to search for individual tags s...
