Week 186

As is the nat­ur­al rhythm of things, we’ve been wrap­ping up a num­ber of projects last week, while oth­ers are pick­ing up steam. On the wrap­ping-up front, I worked with Her­man on prepar­ing the slide deck for HIRAME’s final deliv­ery. We put in some sug­ges­tions for a visu­al style, a prop­er game title, a premise—that […]

Week 170

So anoth­er week has passed. It dawned on me this week­end that for me, there are four more work­ing weeks left in the year. That’s a bit of a shock, but then work will just con­tin­ue on hap­pen­ing in 2013, so it’s odd near­ing the end of the year still feels like a thing. Any­way. […]

Week 159

Last week includ­ed sev­er­al caus­es for cel­e­bra­tion. First of all, although most­ly a for­mal­i­ty, Beesten­bende has been signed off on by the client. We’re real­ly pleased with how the game has turned out so we can’t wait for the first fam­i­lies to give it a go in the muse­um. With devel­op­ment fin­ished we have been […]

Week 158

I’m run­ning late with these notes so I’d bet­ter get them out there. A big chunk of my time was tak­en up by final exams at the Utrecht School of the Arts. I was part of one of the com­mit­tees assess­ing the projects and research done by stu­dents pur­su­ing a mas­ter of arts in game […]

Week 157

As I write this, I am sat in my sec­ond home The Vil­lage, sip­ping a nice cup of Cos­ta Rica Monte Cadet. Last week around this time, I was get­ting on a train at Berlin Haupt­bahn­hof, hav­ing just spent lit­tle under a week work­ing with Alper and play­ing at Play­pub­lik. Before my depar­ture I squeezed […]

Week 156

I’m writ­ing this on a train back from Berlin after a won­der­ful few days mak­ing games with Alper and play­ing games at Play­pub­lik.

Week 155

We’re get­ting into the rhythm of things with Buta. Last week we had our first prop­er standup meet­ing. Although it’s hard to tell if there was any actu­al stand­ing up. The team’s dis­trib­uted, so we chat­ted over Skype. Any­way, these should now hap­pen each week on Mon­day and will help us get to a playable […]

Week 141

We’re try­ing to focus on a few projects late­ly. The idea is to have few­er things going on at the same time, so that each gets the atten­tion we feel it deserves. Last week this renewed focus payed off. We got a lot of work done on both Saba and Kani and I feel good […]

Week 140

Work on Saba con­tin­ued apace this week. We have one more week to go before the next playtest. So Hanne did some final adjust­ments on copy and Karel pro­duced the last bits of art need­ed for the final stages of the game. I’ve been spend­ing most of my time inte­grat­ing all of that in the […]

Week 139

We had a short work­week here because of East­er. So things only kicked off on Tues­day. Some things to report: Kani: Togeth­er with Hanne I attempt­ed to syn­the­size some of the major require­ments and we gen­er­at­ed some addi­tion­al game ideas on Tues­day. On Thurs­day, with Her­man, Tjerk-Jan and Hanne I worked on the pro­gram for […]
