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. I tried a few different scaling ratios (from my map drawings to the actual UDK maps.) The process involved first making a map drawing template in Photoshop, since… Read More

I started the day with determining which tool to use for my project. As I… 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. It was about the possible connection between how our brains react to regular and irregular visual patterns and how a lot of visual guidance methods catch our… Read More


Block 2 – Days 18 & 19 The end of this block draws near, but it’s not here just yet! During yesterday, Wednesday, I wrote another entry for the guide and tidied some other entries up. This entry involved the ramping up of a level’s/game’s difficulty level by introducing threats one at a time, then… Read More


Block 2 – Days 16 & 17 Sup interwebs! It’s time for another workbook entry. So, yesterday’s work is available right here on the site, the short analysis I did on 2001: A Space Odyssey. It speaks for itself pretty well, but that’s basically all I did yesterday. It took a while to get some good snapshots… Read More
