The Language to Convey the Past

The past seems like a tricky thing to convey. When you are making something how do you possibly imbue that ephemeral idea into something that exists in the here and now. How do you make something feel like it is in the past? Well diff...

 
 
 
 

The Roads of Civilization

"Every nation lives by exchange" There is something about Civilization 6 that feels different when compared to other games in the series. For the most part so much of it is the same, the AI is still terrible when it comes to diplomacy ...

About Chimpomageeone of us since 3:20 AM on 09.08.2013

Hello all!

I've been around these parts a long time and I find myself playing fewer and fewer games but my love of the medium has not dulled, if anything, it has gotten stronger.

My passion has gone mostly toward making games but my lack of being able to do art or music and lack of ability in reaching out to people to help me has meant that progress is rather slow...

I want to make games to push the medium forward in terms of understanding the language at the heart of the medium but since the making games route is a bit slow I figured I'd write up some insights and make some videos so that hopefully others can take the ideas and run with them too.

---------------------------------------------------

My Games:
Revenge Quest
(If you get stuck, just sit there and think about what basically every revenge story is about... Eventually you'll get it)

My Videos:
The Artistic Merit of Mario Games(PlayList)
The first video is a bit janky but the production quality does increase!
