No game this week

August 17, 2013

This week’s game did not go well.

I wanted to make a first person shooter, using Unity, for the 7DFPS game jam.

First I wanted to remake the wonderful indie game Inago Rage.

Later on, I tried to build a world that looked like this drawing by Yakov Chernikhov:

But I didn’t succeed with either plan. Things went wrong:

Apart from the game, I had a nice week. Some good chats:

I always appreciate seeing different perspectives. I’d like to start a startup – or go contracting – or build a creative community around game development.

To have nothing to release this week is depressing, though. I’m going to take the weekend off and think about what to do next.
