The best digital sketches I did last week on my Computer Tablet

digital doodles 6-22

Instead of loading up 20 sketches to the blog, I thought it would be more economical (and less annoying to my readers) to pick the best of the bunch and arrange them on to one page. Most are sketches of people I see around my local mall. It’s challenging because most of the time there is only a few seconds to put everything down before the person moves.

Quick Horror: A short but challenging survival horror game with light roguelike elements

After struggling with my adventure game for months, I’ve decided to work on some smaller games for a little. This little ‘survival horror’ game started out as a 24hr challenge became so much more. I’ve already plugged in three weeks into this project.

The game should be released by the end of the month

Quick Horror (working title) is a small but difficult adventure game where you must escape to the 8th floor while evading and battling an aggressive monster. You can counter the monster’s randomized attacks with daggers but they are extremely scarce and have limit on how many can be carried at once. Knowing when to flee and when to fight is crucial in Quick Horror.

This game also has a few roguelike elements like randomly generated rooms , making each play-though a little different.

Project Night Prototype Footage

So much work yet so much more to do.

Project night is an adventure game I’ve been working on and off for the last four months.I am creating the game with Unity using C# and Mono. All models where made in Blender. Music was made in ThumbJam and Audacity. It still has a way to go. Still has some glitches in the AI.

I have set up an official blog for the game: https://projectnightgame.wordpress.com. That’s a WIP as well.

Project Night: Monster Concept Art

Concept art of the monsters in my adventure game. The theme of the monsters is eyeballs. The theme of the environment is teeth. I painted these in Photoshop CC.

The first monster character is the Brute: a buff but slow monster that hunts you during the day, and the Chaser: A nimble fast monster that hunts you down at night.

I’ve already have made the 3d models and are now in the game!  I will upload them to sketchfab soon as well as some in game footage of the prototype.

Mobile Doodles 5-27 to 5-29

Here are some doodles I did on my new tablet.

I found a extremely good deal on a 10′ Lenovo Yoga tablet with Anypen tech. It allows me to draw on the screen with any conductive writing implement. I’ve chosen a HB graphite pencil because that is what Lenovo recommended. To my surprise, there is no residue or scratches left on the screen after regular use. While it’s no iPad Pro and has pressure sensitivity, I still find it amazing. It feels like I’m drawing on paper because I’m using a real pencil on the screen! It’s a very cool tech.My only complaint is that the tablet’s odd shape makes it impossible to find a case for. I might review it at a later time.
