Update on things.

Published by tomas on juni 5th, 2010 - in Uncategorized

Recently a lot of stuff has been going on. Moving houses, working work, winning contests, travelling the world and the list goes on. With stuff being so hectic I have not found the time to update this blog in quite a while. I am not sorry about it because frankly, I have been having a great time. Just stating a fact. :)
Not sure if I have mentioned this before but The Haunted won the grand price in Make Something unreal contest a few months ago. It will go on to be a stand alone game released through various forms. Sadly, this means I can no longer work on the project as my employer prevents me from working on any commercial projects outside the studio.

On a happier note, I have begun working on my dream game. At the moment the whole game only exists in a small a5 notebook filled with text and concept of characters and environments. This project has been in preproduction for about 2 months now and I am not expecting it to go into production for some time yet. I said it was my dream game, and in so many ways that is true. This is the game I have been thinking about for about 5 years now, working out scenarios, characters, gameplay mechanics and art style. Nothing is final and the only thing I am really doing right now is transfering the ideas from my head into paper. Heres a picture I took with my Iphone from one of the concepts.

I have started drawing quite a bit again. I started out with just black and white images but I am working on some colour stuff now but they will have to wait for a later post. The reason I decided to start with black and white is to practice lighting and just getting used to drawing again.

That is it for now.
