Celebrate The Small Things: 6 November
I had a fun Halloween. Spent the day at the pub with this large group of like-minded people that meet up monthly. My first time coming along, but everybody seemed to be friendly and welcoming. They had a quiz, which we won. I suck at quizzes and never usually win. The prize included a box of chocolates. When we got back we stayed up to finish Until Dawn. I was really impressed by how this game looks; Getting to a point where I think the gore in games might actually start to bother me. I did really enjoy it though. No we didn’t manage to save everybody.
I’m still recovering from, I don’t know what it is. I thought it was a cold but this is the 3rd week and it gets worse on the weekends. Starting to wonder if I have an allergy to something that I’m going to have to figure out. I did get really itchy eyes, but my cough is being persistent. Anyway, I decided to use this as an excuse to skip the gym this week and spend more time working on other things. I got another couple of game prototypes finished and have almost done a 3rd one. I think its been really good for me to do a smaller project in this way, as normally I get too enthusiastic and jump into overly complicated projects that don’t turn out too great. This is allowing me to practice the different stages of development and I’m getting better at the fail faster approach. There were a few things I’ve had to balance out, but I think I’ve finally managed to find a solution to all of the issues I was having. As well as this I also got WordPress to work locally on my computer. I know I’ve done it before and then got distracted, but I’m really keen to learn how to create my own themes. I’m definitely feeling a bit different in myself, like more motivated than usual. Although I’m ready for the weekend. :).
