Week 253

We kicked off the week with a review of the lat­est sprint on Stand­ing. The app now has a com­plete­ly new look. Aside from a few final tweaks we deemed it ready to ship. For the next sprint we decid­ed to focus on get­ting the web site aligned with the new look. That same day […]

Week 219

Hav­ing returned from Lon­don over the week­end, I was back in the Utrecht stu­dio and joined by Alper who would be here the whole week. Our nor­mal rou­tine of remote col­lab­o­ra­tion is pret­ty effec­tive but it’s fun—and useful—to have the occa­sion­al week of work­ing face-to-face. On Mon­day I tied up some loose ends from our […]

Week 213

This was one of those in-between weeks so I’ll keep things short. I wrote up and pub­lished a project page for Rip­ple Effect. This was a very inter­est­ing and reward­ing engage­ment with Shell, which we hope will see fol­low-up in the next year. Alper returned from Japan. I updat­ed him of the things that went […]

Week 196

Last week, Alper spent time lead­ing devel­op­ment on Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie and Rip­ple Effect while I lead the design. For the for­mer, we worked on the final update which should con­sid­er­ably improve the home­page. It’s always a chal­lenge to design ahead of actu­al con­tent. Now that the game has been run­ning for some time we […]

Week 195

Last week we were busy eval­u­at­ing KAIGARA post-pilot infor­ma­tion and sketch­ing out a course to devel­op the final game. We received tons of play­er input, client input and we came up with a bunch of ideas of our own to improve the game. We’re right now busy agree­ing on a coher­ent plan from that set […]

Week 194

Last week was most­ly us qui­et­ly work­ing away on our cur­rent projects, with some extracuric­u­lar activ­i­ties in between. Here’s what hap­pened: Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie (SAKE) We shipped some new fea­tures to Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie, most notably a swanky pre­view mode for play­ers and writ­ers and lim­it­ed markup capa­bil­i­ties for the lat­ter. Not exact­ly rock­et sci­ence […]

Week 192

Last week was the last week we had to fin­ish the Rip­ple Effect pilot. As I write this, the game’s been run­ning for lit­tle over a day and has just under two weeks left before end­ing. So we man­aged to get it out the door. The process con­sist­ed of an accel­er­at­ed playthrough with the team […]

Week 191

Last week was the penul­ti­mate pro­duc­tion week for KAIGARA dur­ing which I was present at the Utrecht stu­dio for three days for the very essen­tial face­time that can­not be replaced by Apple’s Face­Time even though it does come close. Tues­day was a full day of work with the entire team at the Hub­bub stu­dio helmed […]

Week 190

Hav­ing launched Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie just before the week­end it’s only nat­ur­al we had to do a few quick fix­es on Mon­day, the first prop­er day of the game. I sat down with Niels to review his nar­ra­tive design for KAIGARA. He’s doing a great job of adding “just enough” theme to what is oth­er­wise […]
