BLOG

It's been 4 months now since Halcon and I had built a game from scratch and released it on Steam, I feel proud of this because it's the first time I had done such an accomplishment, inspiring actually to see people purchase my game. I'm glad all the work I've put into my project had brought a great game experience to people. We both go home happy.

I felt like my game needed more to the story, I wanted interaction objects that would hint different item locations and areas to explore. I built a journal system that records the players interactions with specific objects so the player can look back at it for sub quests in the game.

Created powerful items for beating the main temples in the game. achieving all of them would unlock the last area in the game, where you would obtain the most powerful item of them all.

 

I learned more about delegates, Unity Events and Unity Actions and I built the entire UI interface of the shop system.

 

What exactly happens when I drop a person into 3D space? I can set in the inspector what town and if the person acts as a shop.

 

When shopping and depending what town, will bring up a variety of items you can buy.

 

There are 6 slots that are assigned "when talking" immediately in code. It then selects and detects any item I want. The price, a discount, a sale of the week, a special item.

 

This tells the player that this town has this item on sale where the other town has it for full price.

 

Also when you buy the vitality the dialogue changes as if the shop keep recognizes you. During night the shop closes and kicks the player out from of the shop and closes the door.

 

A dialogue message pops and says it opens at 6am. During night time the people that wander around say different things than they would during the day.

ABOUT ME

A talented left handed individual that thrives on creativity. Based in Canada in a small Province of Nova Scotia. From a young age he grew up building things out of cereal boxes, cutting card board to design computers, games, cars, guns, swords and shields.

Introduced to the Nintendo Entertainment System, the SEGA genesis, Super Nintendo and PC games on Windows 95. Always had the dream to work on games but was too young and never had the tools we have today.

From 2012 to 2016 he was designing graphic wallpapers as well as user interface designs for the original Xbox which are still extremely popular to this day. He also composed music as a hobby containing a total of 71 songs which equaled out to 6 albums.

 

From 2016, nudged by friends and family to take a course doing what he enjoyed at NSCC.
During a mock interview with Red Space that was hosted by the school he was considered as someone who wore a lot of hats, or a jack of all trades among some of the faculty at NSCC.

 

After graduation in the Video Game Development course, he found his passion and building video games has filled every aspect of his creativity. Unfortunately at the time jobs were not available for individuals with less than 3 years of game development experience.

 

Taking matters in his own hands he started building games from bottom up on his own. As of February 5th 2020 he successfully announced his release of his first ever game on Valve's "Steam" gaming network for PC called Devastation - Annihilate the Alien Race.

MY WORK

Since the start of my game development i realized that I'm very persistent with my work and never have I put my best in to something like this, spending countless hours learning, exploring, creating, programming just to build a game.

 

Game development defined my personality, I have always been an extremely creative person. Designing games gives me the tools to bring out the best out from my personality.

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

I like to build games from the roots of old school gaming. When creating games the idea is to build something unique to the eye, allowing the player to explore features of the game and browse through items and obstacles that are enjoyable.

 

The game play experience I would like to portray should satisfy the player by achievement or intense action. Most of my games are based from top games that made old school gaming, like Descent, Unreal tournament, Doom, Zelda and Landstalker.
