Global Game Jam, Updated Videos and More!!

Hey guys! Sorry it’s been a while since I last posted. I’ve been doing a lot of work, starting on new modules which allow me to learn DirectX, as well as Physics and AI programming techniques. I’m also waiting for the results of some assignments before I put them up online. Today I just got back from the Global Game Jam, which took place at my University Campus in Stafford.

Some quick updates, all the videos now are embedded from Youtube, which is great because viewing is much easier through WordPress and in general. Here are new games I’ve uploaded for you to try out:

It was a brilliant time, getting to work with other talented programmers and game makers from students to industry members, and I got to work in a team to make a game. I worked with another programmer (James Cox), a designer (Rob Pritchard), and two artists (Alex Mehroke and Sam Denvir) to make Anarchy Ambulance a “Crazy Taxi” like game where you obtain hearts for the black market in a not-so calmly manner. Below is a 30 second clip of the game:

(and I’ll be making a main page with a more in-depth gameplay video soon)
