Hey all! It’s time again! I’ve gotten a lot of work done today. I started out by finishing the map layout drawing for the first Chamber, the one utilizing the Light the Way method from my guide, which involves guidance by highlighting and contrast lighting. The map drawing was pretty basic, so I started building it in… Read More

Workbook time, let’s do this! First off, what happened during yesterdays work? Well, to be honest, I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped to. I read a bit through one of the sources I have, planned a bit more about how I should go about making the level(s). Except for the previously… Read More

Workbook time, come on grab your friends! Yeah, you know the drill! Another week has started and my work’s going well. Today, I laid out a process plan for how I will go about making my levels. I also made a little design document, since I want the project to be more than just a… Read More

Hey all! It’s Friday, time for another update for my workbook! So, today I continued working with figuring out which scale I should use in my levels.

The Level Design Guidance Guide! The name is very much straight to the point, isn’t it? Click the fancy cover to download the guide… Read More

Block 2 – Days 21 & 22 Sup interwebs! Another block is soon over, so it’s time for a short little wrap-up here. I haven’t got much to write about in terms of reflecting back upon my work, since the points I wrote on the day 15 entry are still very relevant. I will, however, reflect upon… Read More

Block 2 – Day 20 Hey all! A little late report on Friday’s work here. I needed a bit of cooldown after the rather hefty entry I wrote.
