I finished my first game jam! I wrote a little about entering it a while back here. You can play it here at the below link:
(Edit, 2:12 PM) Woops-a-doodle! I accidentally posted this to the wrong blog. Hate it when that happens (it’s alright). If you like this post, check out Double Issue Show’s blog or the podcast for more content.
P.S. –Guess what’ve been working? A podcast! Surprise! I’ll talk about it more soon.
Are you ready to have to wait for the next episode to get the resolution you crave? Then have we got a show for you! This week is the first part of a two-parter as we set up unresolved stories that we’ll finish up in two weeks. The Twist? We’ll be finishing each other’s stories. Hope you enjoy the setup and hope we can get ourselves out of these ones.
So I’ve been following different indie game developers on Twitter for a while now. I’ve felt like an imposter or like I was party crashing listening to them talk about their work. A few of these people on Twitter announced that they are putting on a ‘Salvage Jam‘ for old unfinished projects. I decided to sign up to force myself to actually finish something. I don’t want to be ‘faking it’, I just want to be ‘making it (the game that is)’.
Greetings! The holidays were a whirlwind here. My last day of work for the year was also the day I saw the Last Jedi and the day I graduated (and that was the first night). Christmas break is traditionally a time of the year where I make big promises to not deliver on. I always say I’m gonna do big things but usually just take a break. This year wasn’t really any different but then I started the year off sick.
Another Turkey Day in the books. This year we honored the time-tested family tradition of doing manual labor, eating till we hurt, and discussing medical procedures in gory detail over dessert. It was fun.
Because I sort of let the month slip by, I thought I’d give the short-hand version of my month for everyone.
I’ve been a bundle of nerves for the last few weeks. I took my comprehensive examination for my graduate program a few weeks ago. It was a weekend long essay test. I had heard horror stories about it but couldn’t really devote time to thinking about that. The weekend came and I made nearly every mistake possible as a test taker. Turned it in and prayed. Then waited for my results. I saw a friend on Facebook post that they had passed and it took a full minute to remember we are in the same program. So I rushed out to my school email…
AND I PASSED!
