Week 311

The big thing this week was the start of a new sprint on Free Birds. Niels and Tim joined us again for copy and art respec­tive­ly, while Alper donned his devel­op­er hat, and I switched between my pro­duc­er, agile coach, and design­er roles. There’s a lot to do, as usu­al, but we’ve made good progress. […]

Week 302

I returned from a long hol­i­day in South-East Asia to find the busi­ness hum­ming along nice­ly thanks to Alper’s capa­ble stew­ard­ship. I’ve men­tioned this before, but the fact that all of our work lives in Asana makes it super easy for me to catch up on things and pick up where I left off. I […]

Week 297

This was a rel­a­tive­ly qui­et week. We made plans for the next sprint on SHACHI. Alper con­tin­ued his search for a Uni­ty devel­op­er to sup­port us on the same project. (Sug­ges­tions and appli­ca­tions wel­come.) I did some last-minute design work on BANKEN. Alper start­ed prepar­ing for his talk at Repub­li­ca next Tues­day. I went over […]

Week 296

I was in the Nether­lands last week to fin­ish the first beta of SHACHI. The three of us (Kars, myself and Hedge­field) went to the Air­borne Muse­um in Oost­er­beek on Wednes­day to playtest it. Playtests are absolute­ly essen­tial to val­i­date both for us and our clients that what we are doing is going in the […]

Week 295

The vast major­i­ty of our time this week was spent on SHACHI. I draft­ed copy, Alper did soft­ware devel­op­ment and Tim worked on art­work. Next week we’ll playtest the first beta. I what time remained, I did the odd bits of design direc­tion on BANKEN, which has tran­si­tioned into pro­duc­tion. As a result my role […]

Week 294

Here are some brief (belat­ed) notes on last week. Project SHACHI saw good progress. I pinned down the game design for the first beta in a bunch of screen sketch­es on index cards and some state mod­els on white­board. Alper con­tin­ued to do soft­ware devel­op­ment on the pro­to­type in Uni­ty while Tim fur­ther devel­oped the […]

Week 293

Last week Kars did lots of work on BANKEN cre­at­ing among oth­er things a pro­to­type in Mar­vel of the inter­ac­tive video. Based on pre­lim­i­nary results that seems to be con­sol­i­dat­ing the design for the project. Kars briefed the peo­ple from Hack­ing Habi­tat how they can run our work­shop for­mat Play­ing with Rules at their first […]

Week 292

Some sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments this week! Let’s start with Cam­parc Mark II. We had a suc­cess­ful run dur­ing the week­end. Hard­ware and soft­ware per­formed admirably—a tip of the hat to Aldo and Arnaud—and peo­ple seemed to real­ly enjoy it. Lat­er this week we pro­vid­ed the STRP crew with some addi­tion­al doc­u­men­ta­tion so that they can run […]

Week 291

I’m writ­ing this from the Nether­lands where I spent this week tak­ing meet­ings along­side Kars. I’ll be off to Berlin tomor­row while Kars is in Eind­hoven for the first run of Cam­parc II at the STRP bien­ni­al. He did a tech­ni­cal test on Mon­day and final bits of pro­duc­tion for what should be a spec­tac­u­lar […]

Week 290

We fin­ished sprints on two projects this week. For Cam­parc Mark II, Aldo and Arnaud pushed hard to get a release can­di­date ready. Lots of hard­ware tweaks were made and devel­op­ment on the Ocu­lus Rift soft­ware was done. In the mean­time I focused on some final pro­duc­tion details, such as mak­ing sure we have plen­ty […]
