The Card: Sprint Review – Kenobi

Retrospective Hello all!  These past two weeks have been mostly occupied with design and logistic work in order to make sure that all of the art documentation is complete.  I’ve established a pretty good buffer now so there should be minimal roadblocks for my artists. I was hoping to get to some dialogue editing and …

The Card: Sprint Review – Luke

Retrospective Hello everyone!  It’s been almost three months since I’ve last updated this blog with a progress update.  For some of that time I was mostly dormant — dealing with fallout from the pandemic .  More recently, I’ve been back in the office and much more strongly motivated to work on the game.  There’s something …

The Card: Sprint Review – Bo-Katan

Retrospective This sprint’s update will be brief as I’ve just been slogging through the writing.  I can only hope that once I cut through the first drafts the editing will be easier.  Even with the mentality that I don’t have to get everything right the first time, I find myself questioning the flow of scenes …

The Card: Sprint Review – Mara

Retrospective When I started this sprint I was just getting started it felt like.  I was borrowing placeholder assets from The Arcana just to try and proof-of-concept out what a sprite system might look like.  These past two weeks have been leaps and bounds forward. I have achieved the first milestone of many:  a playable …

The Card: Sprint Review – Leia

Retrospective Leia was a pretty off-beat sprint for me, and I didn’t think it would turn out nearly as well as it did.  During the first half, I got so bogged-down with incorporating YarnSpinner and running into limitations with Unity’s serialization that it felt like it wasn’t making any progress at all. As you’ll see …

The Card: Sprint Review – Rey

Retrospective Admittedly, I underestimated the amount of time fully transitioning into this new job would take.  Lots of little things tend to add up — stuff like making extra trips to walmart because you need a shower rod.  Despite my optimism in the last developer diary, I’m still working out of boxes. That said, I …

The Card: Developer Diary 03

I think things are finally starting to come together. As I mentioned in my last blog post, my top priority very recently has been finding a job to sustain myself.  Despite my best efforts to locate a job in the game industry, the circumstances of my situation required me to accept the first appropriate job …

The Card: Developer Diary 02

After a long time away, I’ve finally managed to get back into the swing of things with a little bit of time each day dedicated to development. Hey guys!  It’s been a few months since the last developer diary.  I spent most of that time getting orientated to a new work and academic schedule but …

Android Studio

The Card: Developer Diary 01

Downloading Android Studio in order to set up a proper Android developer environment was a feat and a half. As I mentioned in my last blog post, one of my goals for the break is to design, develop, and ship a game.  The sooner I can do this the better, because it will help me …
