If you ever get the chance to make a 3D print of something, take it.

That glorious feeling when you make an awesome 3D model pales in comparison to that glorious feeling when you actually hold it in your hands and can show it around without booting up a computer program.
Your “skill” (Or lack thereof) suddenly becomes something you can touch, something real on a new level.

We have a new 3D printer at school that I got to try today, and I do believe I`ll have to come back again sometime next week ;)

Here is my entree for Ludum Dare 48!

In this game, you are a diver who jumped into the water without a lifeline or oxygen tank. Why? Good question. Ponder about that while you make sure that the diver lives as long as possible.
However, with its limited oxygen supply, everything must come to an end.

Since I never really made a game all by myself, it was quite a stressful time to debug it all. There is still a camera bug where the screen shakes uncontrollably when the levels transition, I cant seem to fix that. However, I can say I`m pretty pleased with the end result.

I can now say that I made a game all by myself in 48 hours.
Now if you`ll excuse me, I have some sleep to catch up on.

You can play the game online [here], or find download links over [here]!

So my classmate is way into Transformers and made a rad fan-former as part of a school assignment. It inspired me to try my hand at designing one as well!
Here it is. It transforms into a bison tank, and I might do something with this design later on.

You can play with the application yourself over here, if you have the Unity plugin installed!

Cataloging some Pixels I have been working on in the past few weeks!

I have a meeting at school this week where I can put forth my suggestion to make some more pixel artwork for RPG Maker VX Ace, to practice my environments and assets.

We had to pitch a project at school this week, here is what I did!

Team Pyrites submission to the Global Game Jam, 2014!

In this party game, all players pick their biggest fears and then proceed to confront the other players with their biggest fears!

Fun is had all around, except for the people who are genuinely afraid of books, flowers, cookies or ducks.
