2019-07-30 Another flower mug is ready

I enjoyed making the rose mug, and I take the oportunity to force myself practising this technique, instead of experimenting with more and more art supplies, by doing another. As a pleasant side effect, I have a Christmas gift ready.

2019-06-27 Roguelike Milestone Announcement

I did some work on the Roguelike. I have a door, that can be opened or kicked down. I also have a Story, which is very simple right now, but defines how many dungeon levels exist and how large they are. In consiquence, I needed stairs. In the future, there will be more and more sophisticated Stories. Right now, the Story influences the creation of the level - in the future, the Story will give orders to a MapBuilder.

2019-06-23 Paper Roguelike is going forward

I considered a few ways to realize the analog/offline Roguelike game:

2019-06-02 Openbook Invitations to Share

I have two Openbook invitations to share with whoever is interested in that platform. I am far from recommending it. While I check the app often and like the concepts, which are very similar to Google+, I am not very active there.

2019-05-19 Flowerful Mug available

I needed a present — which is the usual motivator that lets me get something done — and I like the result quite well.

2019-04-17 Paper Roguelike back to the Drawing Board

Who knows me, knows that I like books. I envisioned the Paper Roguelike as a small and stirdy hardcover, enabling people to dungeon crawl on any piece of squared paper.

2019-04-14 Roguelike Milestone Announcement

My roguelike is turning into a game! It’s possible to collect gold coins, and I can distinguish between natural cave walls and floors and artifical walls and floors of cities or ruins.

2019-04-07 Roguelike Development Update

I made some progress on the positioning of the map, which will be more obvious once the maps get larger than the available space. I also fixed a bug in the algorithm that determines visibility of wall tiles, so I soon can start to work on the actual content, but before that I will make the tile size adjustable.

2019-03-28 Aitazan, the Roguelike

To put some pressure on me, I herewith announce the development of Aitazan, a roguelike game, that I plan to do for a while now.

2019-02-09 My First Trial on a Paper Roguelike

Of the last few days I gathered a lot of notes during my train rides and while lying in bed awake on a offline dungeon crawler I want to develop. So today I tried for the first time.

2019-01-24 My First Attempt on Paper Minis

I remembered the paper minis I made in a hurry before my first trip to Vietnam, to demonstrate the nice little tabletop game Song of Blades and Heroes by Ganesha Games.

2019-01-04 New Year's Resolution

I do a lot, but few projects come to fruition. So my New Year’s resolution for this year is twofold:

  1. Drop most game development projects — both digital and analog: Sure I can program, but I can’t do the playtest on my own.
  2. Increase my drawing skills. A single drawing can be used as a postcard and so be called a finished project.
