Haven’t done any work / depression

I don’t know if it’s just be, but I DON’T think it’s just me, but I have no idea how to cope with working a stressful full-time job and coming home in the afternoon and being too tired to do ANYTHING creative. I could be working on my language zine, I could work on a …

Game mockup

First attempt at a mockup of what I’d like Undead Debt to look like. The environment is the hardest part, since it will basically just be one big map with a few cities, and you have to fight zombies between towns as you make money through the gig economy to make loan payments. I want …

Money and Motivation

It’s clear that I’m going to need to get a full time developer job once we’re back from India. My husband is talking about wanting to buy a house and wants to go on vacations and travel, we will probably be ready for a kid in a few years, and I still have student loans …

On Hold Because Money

Just a quick note – the game is currently on hold. Jan 2019 I have “free” because it doesn’t make sense to job hunt before I’m going to be out of the country for a month, so I’ll be focusing on making some educational games this month to try to make some money. That means …

Good Morning 2018: A game about mass shootings

This morning, I woke up to news about shootings in Chicago, Denver, and St Louis. But it’s not the first morning I’ve checked my phone and seen news like this. It happens all the time in the United States. I made this small clicker game, using real data from GunViolenceArchive.org, to illustrate what it’s like …

Zombie Maker – Part 2 – Drawing Zombies

Store Stylez I’ve been having trouble envisioning a style to make this game, and I finally was just like “dood, just do it in your style .” I’m still going to make UI elements very chibi, but the main game art itself will be in more of the style I draw my web comics in. …

2 depressed 2 make art

I haven’t really worked on the game at all in the past ten days. I want to do some of the more artistic parts of the game, but depression just fucks up my ability to brainstorm and come up with ideas. I hope there’s some good news after tomorrow’s election. I’m just so tired. Here’s …
