Again, been a while. Just a quick update on the ins and outs of my life up to July 2014:
  • KAG released, done quite well off it.
  • Working on a handful of game side-projects with THD.
  • Playing around with 3D art in case we decide to move in that direction.
  • Still primarily a pixel artist, at least commercially.
  • One more semester of university to go. I will graduate with a BSc majoring in Computer Science, minoring in Microbiology

Busy days, but fun.

Been quite a while since I've written anything here. Figured I'd bring dA up to speed.

I've been working as a game artist and programmer with Michal Marcinkowski (the soldat guy) for more than 2 years now, before that I did a few personal projects and some contract work. I'm not currently looking for extra work - thanks for all the nice offers though :^)

The game we've been working on for that time is called King Arthur's Gold, you can get it at kag2d.com . It's about vaguely medieval soldiers and engineers cooperating to overcome the enemy team. It's multiplayer, there's destructible terrain, you get to build castles and knock them down. It's a lot of fun.

I've been working on my painting and pixel art skills as much as possible, and it's nice (if a little embarrassing) seeing the progression I've made.

I'm studying alongside working on KAG, majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Microbiology. My grades are above average.

Overall, life's good.

Been working on this on and off for about two weeks now.
losingreception.110mb.com/Prel… <- test build.

In other news, I'm drawing a lot on paper at the moment, might try and scan some of it if I can. Glad to have hit 6k recently too :D

:D :D Wooo, hit 5k views! Cheers to everyone who's helped me get this far.

In the interim of the last two journals I've made a game for LudumDare, a 48 hour game making competition, and polished it a bit since the competition.
You can get the current version from drop.io/ilopocalypse but you'll need love from love2d.org to play it. I'd love to hear what you think of it :D

Been working on my pixel art skills and looking into starting to make games in flash. Haven't had a time to doodle anything recently :(
