Hey all! Let’s squeeze in another little report here, before new year’s eve and all! So, what’s been going on these last few days of the week? Well, I polished and finished up the synopsis for the story in its entirety and I’ve planned what elements I will incorporate into the first Chamber/level. I made… Read More

Block 2 – Days 6-7 Good evening, internet! It’s time again for another workbook entry on my adventures into guidance in level design! Yesterday (Monday), I was at school working. I read through the entirety of Alex Galuzin’s Ultimate Level Design Guide. There were a few articles/pages on some guidance methods in level design, of which a… Read More

Block 2 – Days 4-5 Reporting in again for a little update on my planning. I spoke to my tutor yesterday (Thursday) about my planning document, as there were some things he suggested I should change. He advised me to put focus on just the theory for now and concentrate on one of the two… Read More

Block 2 – Days 1-3 Hey all! It’s time again, though it’s now time for a new block, with an entirely new set of goals.

There is the student grant, though. Anyway, let’s not get too off topic. Today, I was at school again, in shape enough to… Read More
