I'm going to just dump notes here whenever I feel like; they could be relevant of they could be completely garbage.
Also, I have been offered the chance to bring the Vertical Slice to a public exhibition in 5 months time, but I'll need to really step on it and start producing content.
Vertical Slice = Murder Investigation: It'd be easier to do an investigation about a character you find in pieces on the street, rather than having to deal with the complexity of making a
Within the last month I've written out roughly 120+ (and still rising as I type this) PM messages on RRU within the span of a month. This is not including the replies I've received.
I'm gonna have to start drawing a line on what should be a PM and what should be public, because honestly, some of them can and should be (especially the questionnaire ones - I'm already getting to work dealing with those).
Do you wanna know how much public posts I've made in comparison? Only a 1/3 o
I've been here three years huh
Exactly one year ago I told you all how I ended up here in the first place, but this year... I haven't really got much to say actually. We've had some good times and some bad times in the last year, but the one thing that definitely hasn't changed is my relationship with this forum and how much I love it so. Everyone here is nice and for once on the internet it feels like I belong somewhere, and that sense of belonging is
One thing I forgot to cover in detail in my previous blog entry was regarding how my game fits into the 6m core values of the LEGO company. Once again, this is all just generalisation at this stage, but since it's part of the reason I'm making this game (to make a LEGO game which actually matches all the values), I need to address them in some capacity.
The 6 Core Values:
Imagination: It's important that kids can have enough freedom to express their ideas and develop th
so it's RRU's eighth anniversery today and I hope something happens but I digress I've been awake for 36 hours so I'm gonna share something I'm probably gonna regret but, back when the current reputation system (after the points were reset and the dislike button was removed due to some certain members getting hate-f****ed) was re-introduced I used to like every single post Cirevam ever made, past and present, in hopes that it would get him and keep him at the top of the scoreboard. I have no ide
High Level Overview
Welcome! Over the coming months in my spare time, I will be developing a new LEGO fan-game called LEGO Investigations. Before I can build the full title, I need to make a vertical slice that demonstrates the full thing is feasible and will be worth the effort it will take.
In this High Level Overview, I will be going over some generalities. In my next blog, I will upload a golden path chart, beat sheet, level design plan as well as an asset list and potential
Just wanted to leave a post here just in case the topic gets lost in the daily replies of other topics, August 13th an RRU UHC event is happening. I'll need people signed up by a certain date. All the details are in the forum post I updated. Thank you! #RandomPost
I'm sure many of you have heard of it already, but if you haven't, head over to LEGO Ideas to check out EnigmaticBuild's Maelstrom Spider model! He's done an awesome job capturing the shape of the spider's body, and it's just the right size for a successful set release(taking into account the majority of previous successful submissions).
I didn't want to go through and make a forum post for this, so I am posting this here. I have a realms month subscription coming my way, and I was curious if anyone would be interested in an UHC Event around July 9th (Saturday). If I see any interest, I'll set it up accordingly in a post.
This is my first blog entry. To start this off, I found these concept arts for Knights Kingdom 2. I found these concept arts interesting, but, I thought if, anyone was interested to see these!
Here's a link to the artist: http://www.mikerayhawk.com/knights_kingdom.htm
Let me know if you want more of my blog posts in comments below!
Edit: A showcase for transforming the castle to Vladeks. Cool, huh!
A Mega Man style music! It actually is quite far from that though, but I don't care. I like this better. I really enjoy the melodies here, I'm sure even who doesn't usually listen to this kind of music (electronic-orchestral-metal-Touhou?) would like it.
About April this year, I dreamed up a game in my head. It would be a successor to Drome Racers where players could build their cars, SPORE-style, and then race them through the post-apocalyptic ruins of the Drome Staduim. Then, in my free time in school and at home, I actually started an attempt at building it from scratch. No Unity, no Unreal, and no XNA, because really, the project was mostly about learning as much as possible.
Now that summer's here, I have a job and not really mu
Today I accepted a co-op internship with Entre Computer Services as a Co-op developer working on a variety of apps and projects.
The co-op serves as part of my graduation requirement. With 6 months of co-op experience programming or developing games, I can finally graduate with a Bachelor's degree in Game Design.
Also it gives me money.
Money is nice.
I start on the 6th of July.
Also the place has tons of apartments which are like a kil
Hey there Rock Raiders! I'm back at it again,
Anything new or exciting happen?
Life's been kind of hectic after moving and finishing the school semester and finals, but I think things have finally settled.
Most exciting thing that's happened recently is that I now work at a Lego store! Yahoo!
It's not an official Lego store (baww), but it's a franchise which sells both new and used Lego pieces and sets and minifigures! Super exciting, I start in a week!
I don't know how many people here actually like Ratchet & Clank or its soundtrack, but you can listen to this even if you aren't a fan of that game. But mind you, this is quite different from my usual stuff.
This is a track supposed to mimic as much as possible the style of the music from the original trilogy (the third game in particular). Enjoy!
Ever have that feeling when tomorrows the day you get a huge Lego set with so many unique pieces, you get so hyped and start posting s*** in the chat. You abuse the caps lock feature and you know the last pieces to the greatest lego invention of the century are in it. Well… I'm feeling it
Lately I've been working on a language I've dubbed Hatsui, which translates to summer, It is literally called the Summer language, or Language of Summer. It will be spoken by a people who speak a different language each season, Harvest (similar to Autumn), Summer, and Waterrise (similar to Spring). Each language will have similarly designed characters, but with different styles, to be similar to what the people experience in each season.
I haven't fully fleshed out the Conwolrd, thou
