C-Blog RPG Introduction

Hello Destructoid. A while back I started to tell people that I was going to start working on an RPG game. I said that I would update all of you, so here I am. I wish I could say that I had done more work in the past month. But I can’t, a...

 
 
 

10 Things I’m Not Famous For

I've had some very personal blogs. So a lot of the things I could have put on this list are all gone. You guys already know a lot about me. I lost one of my brothers in a tragic accident when I was 21. You never get over something like th...

 
 
 

Why do we fall sir?

Andy Dixon recently blogged a 'state of the c-blogs' found here. And I realized that I've wanted to see some improvements here as well. There are actually plenty of people here that I enjoy. Elsa still stays pretty consistent. Knutaf stil...

 
 
 

Happy Mass Effect Endings

Please continue if you are okay with hearing about the endings to Mass Effect 3. There are spoilers ahead. I was actually writing this in response to an earlier post, and it got a little too long so I decided it was a blog. There are a l...

Torment I am a fan of Role-Playing Games and will probably doing design work on them until I die. I spend most of my time thinking about them. I try to see the potential in them. Ever since I knew about Zelda I was charmed by them. No mat...

 
 
 

Talking to women about TtWaV

Jonathan Holmes has a video coming out about once a week called Talking to Women about Videogames (TtWaV). I love it. The videos have this quirky/friendly quality right out of the box. They have a lighthearted humor to them. At first, I w...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 24: Beyond

It's finished!!!!!! Before we start, let me say that PAX has been amazing. I had the honor of reading this chapter to quite a few Destructoid members that were in the story. I wonder if people I don't know, like Anthony and Jim even know a...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 23: Death

Just one more chapter to go. I will be posting the last chapter on Friday, the first day of PAX. I hope you all have enjoyed the story. Forgive me once more for the lack of art, but we have to get this story done! I promise more art for the...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 22: Crossroads

Happy Monday Destructoid. The story is all falling into place. Two more chapters left. Not much to say right now. No art this week because... First, no new characters. Second... Action scenes are hard. I'll have to think of something to ins...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 21: Scheduled Meeting

There are a few people still that we haven't seen in the story yet. There are people I wish I could stuff into the story here or there because they're awesome, but there are some of those people I will not be able to write in. I don't want ...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 20: Looks

Hello friends. Another chapter as promised. Four more to go. I didn't have a picture or a reference for Handsome Beast - but later on I have a list of pictures that I need to add to some of the existing chapters, so I'll be trying to update...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 19: Found

It had been a while since Crime had started looking, but he found the designer’s lair. For the amount of area he covered trying to find it, it seemed as if it was a little too easy to find. It seemed like it was his destiny to do this ver...

 
 
 

Chapters 19 and 20 are written.

It's been a while Destructoid. PAX is coming up. I'm going to be there and I hope to see all of you. My girlfriend is a member of the PMS clan (Pandora's Mighty Soldiers), and she is hoping to meet her fellow clan members there too at so...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 18: Scars

It's been a while my friends. I am past burnt out. I'm way past it. But I promised someone a chapter this week. And I will do it again, and again, until there is an end - the end I've been thinking of from the moment I conceived of this sto...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 17: Sympathy

“Unfortunately you don’t know what you’re asking right now.” Anthony said. Anthony, upon healing himself, now looked as if he was in his fifties. He had streaks of grey hair and his skin was saggy and wrinkling in places. “I need to at ...

 
 
 

Afford What Has Value To You

I watched Jim Sterling’s video about piracy too. Something had been bugging me though, well before Jim’s video. I’ve been reading plenty of articles and watching plenty of videos about it. I’m not saying that I know everything about th...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 16: Beyamourning

Hey again all of you. Thanks for your support. I have a plan now. The game I'm going to produce is nearly finished being designed. I will start coding once the fan-fiction story is finished. And only after I have caught up on all the art I ...

 
 
 

A Game Designer No One Knows About.

I've never really had writer’s block. I have too much to say – too much to write about to have writers block. But I haven’t written anything in a while. And I’m not focused enough to do another chapter of the fan-fiction quite yet. I’ve b...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 15: Crime

I am super tired. I know that part of it is that I'm lazy. But I know that part of it is that I also am burnt out on programming. I struggled hard to get this episode out. Again, sorry for the lack of art. I don't know. I've been in a bit o...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 14: No Mercy

I almost didn't get to write this between work and the holidays. Things are crazy now. I 'will' keep the story going. And I will get to all the art that I've been promising. But, things went so awesome with the 'opportunity' I mentioned tha...

 
 
 

To SephirothX [shortblog] [bad singing]

I am not Andy Williams. This is in response to a SephirothX post. Regarding: It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Destructoid Edition) Yes it is bad. But it had to be done. I really have nothing to write. this Go ahead. Download...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 13: Split Up

I've had a lot of work to do. I think this weekend I might have a career changing opportunity - sort of a make it or break it kind of thing - except with no gymnasts. Sorry I couldn't make it to FNF also. I think we will be playing Halo: Re...

 
 
 

Happy Holidays: Remembering Friends and Family

Every year around the holidays I am more thankful for what I have been given. Even before Christmas and the traditional opening of presents I love the atmosphere of winter in Seattle and the promise of a traditional gathering of family. I d...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 12: Spirit

“YEEEEE HAAAAAA!!!” Corduroy Turtle expressed his new found youth. He ran day and night to Ravensdale. The air in his lungs felt thicker. With every inhale of oxygen he felt totally regenerated. The power of youth pulsed through him with e...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 11: Flight

Lots of work lately. I'm hoping to show you guys the video games I've been making an designing someday. So, nothing really to say because my mind is on my work. But... Well I really like how this picture turned out. Enjoy! “Look at his w...

 
 
 

@Chris Bradshaw: Narrative

Chris Bradshaw has perhaps given me too much to think about. It's too much for my game designer brain to handle. So I thought I would try to tackle one facet of his brand of game theory and that is: NARRATIVE. There are a lot of differen...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 10: Diversion

It's Thanksgiving. I did have time to write the story parts but didn't get to the art this episode. I hope I can get to filling in the art later. I don't have time for it just yet, because we're having like three different Thanksgivings! Bu...

 
 
 

C-Blog Fan Fiction Chapter 9: Class

I'm particularly proud of this episode. I don't have internet right now because I just moved. I had to make sure I collected the right info at work and take it home with me to get this done. Special thanks to Kahla for the art! James, Beya...

Good news everyone! I've started to update the old episodes so that people can catch up on things. Special thanks to the wonderful Kahla for doing the art. They found Hugh beside the grave of Mr Andy Dixon. He lay there looking at the sky....

 
 

About Fame Designerone of us since 7:47 PM on 01.31.2010

I've been working on developing video games for a few years now. I put up a blog on here to share what I hope will be sensible and interesting articles about game design. The "Fame Design" name came to me when I thought, "I want to be famous for only one thing: video games".

At the moment I'm developing new games in Flash. So I expect to share experiences in being an indie game developer. I often find myself wondering if I should be working in Flash, HTML5, XNA, or the iPhone/iPad SDK. Time will tell.
