Hey guys. Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time. I’ve been working on a lot of projects (including a ‘lil thing for Attract Mode). And playing video games. There are way too many games coming out lately, and I keep getting them. I don’t want to miss out on anything. It’s hard to keep track of everything I’m playing. Here’s what I’ve been playing the most lately. Oh dear, this is a bit overwhelming.
Ni No Kuni
I had to get this. I mean come on. It’s so wonderful and charming. I love it. Only 5 or 6 hours in, though. But man, pure joy.
I imported this from Japan. I don’t think it will ever come out in North America. I can’t really understand the story, but it seems pretty basic. The gameplay is really fun/fast Japanese action, though. And like Ni No Kuni, it features really pretty cel-shading.
Hey folks. I am *so* excited for the return of Attract Mode. Proud to be a part of it!
There’s something else this week that I’m also very excited about: Sound Shapes is finally coming out!
A bit over a year ago, the fine folks at Queasy Games were kind enough to ask me to help out with the visual design of their new game, Sound Shapes. Since then, I’ve worked on various visual elements of the game: from the logo (above), to the menus, to the playable character (“The Player”), and all sorts of bits in between. I even briefly dabbled in animation for the first time. It’s been my main job for almost a year now (and in development for YEARS before that), and I can’t believe it’s finally finished!
So many amazing people worked on this game. Artists, musicians, programmers, designers, producers, all super-talented. Too many awesome people to list in one post! It’s actually kind of crazy. You’ll just have to look at the credits. I had such a fun time in Toronto working with them. Definitely a highlight of my life so far. Major learning experience. Something I will never forget!
If you have a PS Vita, or even a PS3 (or know someone with one), be sure to check it out on the PlayStation Store! It will cost $14.99 USD (Or $11.99 if you have a PS+ membership).
I hope you enjoy the game & the new Attract Mode! <3
