Sneaking Up

Posted by & filed under .

Our game has changed a lot since last week, and most of those changes I think have been for the better. Ankur was able to fully develop an AI system to control NPCs, so were able to implement that and create a stealth level. We think that a stealth game gives us a really good, […]

Thesis Prototypes Update: A Musical Turn

Posted by & filed under .

Well, we got through yesterday relatively unscathed, it seems. The transgender game didn’t end up pulling off, so I jumped ship to the music improv battle game that already had a bunch of key members. I haven’t worked with most of them before, and the game was my second choice, so I’m really excited to […]

Prototype #4 Update: Twists and Turns

Posted by & filed under , .

So Thanksgiving did end up stalling our progress a bit, but we recovered pretty quickly last week. We still have a long way to go in terms of track design and iteration, but our movement mechanics are working really well now. Ryan has been working seemingly nonstop on getting the game feeling just right, which […]

Posted by & filed under .

We just finished our first prototypes, and already we have a new assignment. This time, we only have three weeks to complete it because of fall break, which sort of sucks, but it’s also an assignment I’m a bit more excited for. This time around, we have to design a new game based on an […]

Prototype #1 Complete!

Four weeks into my new degree, and I already have a brand new prototype to add to my resume; the first prototype I’ve ever worked on. And it’s fun! My presentation for the EAE faculty went really well too, but I’m getting ahead of myself. I should really start with all the changes we made […]

Prototype #1 Update

Posted by & filed under .

Wow, so much has happened in the past two weeks, both in the rapid prototyping class and outside of it. I have so much work to do right now that my head is spinning. I’m doing a good job of keeping up with the workload, but I wouldn’t call it easy. With all that said, […]
