Hey there, Gamers and Game Makers!
So with six weeks into college as a mature student, I thought it was time for an update on all things college life and what's going on with my Game Dev projects.
Six weeks in and I think I'm as settled in as one can be. First round of assessments out of the way and all is going good. It's interesting to see how having a background in game development can give an advantage in some subjects such as programming and from having had years of dealing with folks in a formal manner also giving an advantage to Apps and IPC.
Thankfully I've been able to stay comfortably on top of all my college work while still allowing time for working on game projects. Maintaining a solid routine is key to that. With that said, I am very much looking forward to the Christmas holidays and just relaxing for a bit. Although let's face it, that time off will be spent on game dev work and holiday food of course!
So, work on my current project is still going strong. Obviously being in college means I get less hours to work on it but I get about three hours an evening during the week to work on it and more on the weekends. I'm still not ready to post what the project is exactly but, it's making solid progress. The latest iteration of the prototype is turning out exactly as I'd like it to and the art style is shaping up to be pretty great. All going to plan, I'm hoping to be ready to show off some teaser content after Christmas when the game should start being representative of its final form.
That's about all for now with the updates and once the game is ready to show off, you can expect more in the update posts as well as blog posts specifically about the game.
Until next time!
