[lonely pixel news] Adobe Youth Voices

May 20, 2010 Leave a comment

A couple months back I posted a link to my entry in the AYV festival. To be honest, I started the project to win, but I didn’t think I would. After today my hopes are quite high because one of the judges came up to me and said I’d be hearing from him later. Nothing is final yet; they are still choosing winners, but that comment made me feel so happy.

I’d also like to comment on my major lack of updates. I’m finishing up my senior year of high school which has been quite hectic, leaving me with little time for other things. I’ve been mostly using my free time to relax and test ideas of making some money on the side. I’ve set up a site to sell my digital art as prints, which you can find here. I’ve also been spending a few hours on the weekend working on my new project, Zombie Transmitted Disease or ZTD for short. It is actually coming along quite well and almost have a build that I will release to the public once I finish up a few things.

I’d also like to say how appalled I was at the comments I received on my previous post. Usually I’m open to both positive and negative feedback, but it was quite immature so I disabled the comments on the post. Some people really need to grow up.

[lonely pixel news]new game

What’s funny is that arrow followers started as a “hey, let’s try this…” sort of experimental game and it evolved into what it is today; something much more complex than I had originally planned. Which is why its taking so long to complete but also because I’m doing it by myself, well, the coding anyways. Carlo is doing me a big favor by working on the audio.

Anyways, as I mentioned in a previous post, I’m going to work on another project for a bit. I need to get a game done, I just need to. Arrow followers has turned into larger more long term project. I’m not saying I’m going to drop it, just shelf it for a bit. I originally planned to do a side scrolling shooter by myself for a couple weeks. But if anyone followers my twitter, I posted that there happened to be a change of plans; I mentioned to my friend in my GSP class that I was going to start a “mini project” to get me going again and to actually have a finished game on file. They started talking about something simple we could all do; a top down shooter. Sounds complicated, but I find it very simple in Game Maker. We spent a bit of time last night discussing the feature and right now its sort of looking like COD Nazi zombies top down. Anyways, will post with screens and more info as they appear.
