Today was the big day! EAE Day!  It was as crazy as I thought it would be.  There was tons of people there checking out all of our games and C4 games.  Lots of people loved the 360 shooter game, BEST, and the Tetra Ski project.  In fact I was on the news for it!  That was exciting and lots of people cannot wait to see it on TV.  I met many great people and lots of people gave us great feedback about Crash City.  The team seems to be ok about meeting over the summer to polish a lot of things with the game.  I am really excited about this!  Anyways time to go I need to catch up on some homework!

This will be short and sweet.  I am currently working 2 jobs and going to school full time.  My life is video games and I feel like it is taking its toll on me. I notice my self being very tired all the time especially with school.  My days start at 8 am and end about 9pm.  I feel bad because I never get to see my wife, but she is amazing and she is strong during this crazy time.  Today I am noticing the lack of energy, but I need to hang in there.  Things will start to get better.  O well time for bed.

So we got our website for our thesis game up and running http://www.crashcitygame.com/.  It has a web build on the website so you can see our progression.  We are very proud of what we have got done in such a short time.  We cannot wait to iterate when we get people to play test the game.  If you are reading this blog please let me know what you think of the game(again the game is in pre alpha).   Yesterday we sat down with Roger and he explained about builds and what to do next.   Most of the stuff I knew already, but it was a good refresher.  It is very exciting to see our ideas now become a game.  More exciting new I got an internship with React Games here in Salt Lake.  That is great because my wife and I do not have to do a long distance relationship for the summer.  I start today as a intern level designer! I am super excited and I get to make levels for their game Super Dungeon Bro’s!  So now I am juggling 2 part time jobs Gapp Lab/Internship and going to school full time.  Wish me luck!

 

 

 

Well a lot has gone on these weeks… We found out that our grad program was #1 in the country.  This is very exciting to everyone in the cohort!  We have been getting so much attention from this news lately.  The news usually end up going to the North lab and not the South lab.  Honestly I am glad because the world is not ready for the South lab.  Now about our thesis game.  Crash City is moving along very well!  We will have our first build by Tuesday.  I think Roger and Bob will be happy to see the changes we have done.  We are almost done with our custom level editor that will connect with our traffic AI system and sign placement system.  This will make level design very seamless and everyone can be involved in creating levels.  We are going to have a very fun and crazy start screen, which fits well for our prototype.  I cannot wait to see it all put together.  We have to show our game off on April 19th so we do not have much time.  Finally, I have 2 potential leads for internships, but I am currently waiting to hear back from both of them… WISH ME LUCK
