Welcome to the start of regular blog posts.
I’m going to be posting at least once a month, but sometimes more frequently if I have more to say. By the time this post goes live, hopefully I’ll already have another post or two ready to go. The plan is to stay prepared and ahead of schedule… But, we’ll see how that goes! My hope is that once I start using this website again, I’ll have an excuse to give it a make-over. I liked it several years ago, but it’s a bit stale now.
So, I wanted to briefly touch on what’s been going on lately. And I do mean quite briefly, I’m sorry if I rush through it a bit:
- About one year ago we moved into our own house (renting). This was a fun, exciting and scary thing! It has taken us a while to settle in and get into the groove of things.
- If you’re not aware, I make games with Alex over at Redefinition Games. There have been game development stresses, and some health issues related to stress. But, as a result of cutting back and changing the way we do things, we feel more confident in what we’ve been doing.
It’s been an interesting year. Instead of waiting for a New Year resolution to start afresh, my start begins NOW! Yay!
I have a YouTube drawing video coming up soon as well. It was a watercolour experiment that I think turned out well, if I do say so myself. :) I hope you’ll like it! There should be a blog post for it soon as well. :)
Okay, until next time!
Since the last update post we released The Maze Keeper of Doom quietly into the world, then began on a revamp of The Very Organized Thief. With all the busy busy-ness, I sort of fell off the internet for a while. Since the re-release of TVOThief seems right around the corner (and maybe a Kickstarter), it’s high time I climbed back on! Check out the developer diaries for TVOThief if you want to know more about that. :)
I guess I didn’t fall all the way off the internet, because I have been posting some random sketches on my Tumblr. Here’s an example! :D
These two Post It note sketches were made in some spare moments at work, like while I’m waiting on hold over the phone. It’s Kim’s Minecraft character from the Yogscast and a ‘Honeydew Melon’ ;). I hope I can create little sketches like this regularly, because it helps me feel like I’m not letting my drawing skills go rusty while I’m doing my ‘day job.’ I leave them stuck up on the wall next to my desk at work. :D Livens the place up.
Also posted to Tumblr was a ‘Lava, in the Drum’ sketch with DJH3Max from HatFilms. It is in the process of being turned into a proper drawing right now! Yaay!
In other news, Alex has been fixing up our websites. He’s designed a new layout for mine. I’m pretty excited for it! Not sure when it will go live, but hopefully soonish. :)
Another thing that Alex helped me add to my website was some auto sharing stuff for my social media. Posts I make to my website should share to my Tumblr and twitter and G+ I think. Hopefully that works well! :D This post will be the first time I test it out, so if anything seems wonky, sorry about that.
Anyway I think that’s enough of an update for now. I’ll try to do these more regularly! I figured out how to write these on my phone once again, so that should speed things up. :P We’ll see how I go. Hopefully they’ll also get more interesting!
This month has been CRAZY!
The main things that have been taking up our time have been the new game release around the corner (more info on that when we release it! ;D ), and the crowdfund for The Very Organised Thief around the corner. Everything is just around the corner! So close! So terrifying! But also really, really exciting. If you want to know more about all of our game making shenanigans, please check out our website: http://www.redefinitiongames.com/
In YouTube news, I have about two videos that are half done. They’ve been put on hold while all this craziness goes on, but I’m hoping I can find a few spare hours to finish putting them together. I need to upload SOMETHING to YouTube… I feel really sad when I’m unable to put a video up for this long! I wanted to start posting to a regular schedule, as I mentioned previously, but busy-ness got in the way. Hopefully when things start calming down I can get back to the original plan!
Anyway, that’s it. Just a quick update post to let people know I’m not dead and that I haven’t forgotten you! I’ve just been super busy. XD
