So I'm working on a whole new animated film idea and a 2d game to go along with the film AND an unrelated 3d game that is probably the worst idea I've ever had so it'll probably be successful ^_^
I read this book and this book on Game Design which helped shift my brain into that world a little as I knew nothing about it and don't play games much anymore but it helped focus the ideas...
So I'm hoping to move forward and learn a lot about creating games.... for the 2d one I'm playing with Construct 2 as its really easy to use and has some good features... for the 3d one I'm going to mess with Unity 3d.
Super genuiS guy Tyson turned me on to Unity 3d after I saw the awesomeness that he is making with it in Zombox, I asked him how he learned Unity and he said that he just started using it and dug into the doc's so that was really inspiring!
Most of these game engines have free versions so you can develop limited versions of your games without having to pay for anything so that is definitely nicE.
It looks like the Heart String Marionette real world premiere will be at the Waterloo Festival of Animated film in November so if you want to see the film on a big screen and perhaps kick it with Endika or myself watch that site yo
Also HSM was recently featured on CgSociety and HSM hentai was made ^_^
