Common Grounds Released

March 13, 2012 in Common Grounds, Games

Except I’m taking it down for a while :X

It should be back up after I run the game one last time to make sure everything is working as it should.

The memory issue I thought I fixed was still there. It wasn’t as bad, but it was still there! UNACCEPTABLE!!! So I went crazy-like-a-fox on the code, pulled an all-nighter, and done. Even improved other things, like changing the program icon to a high-res / multi-sizable one.

I will be sending an email to those who have purchased a copy with the updated 1.3 version.

I can’t thank you enough. There were many times I secretly worried this was all silly and that nobody was that interested. And you proved me wrong. I won’t let you down! More games–let’s do this!!

Bug fixing nightmare pre release

I’ve read about ‘crunch time’ for game developers. I felt like I’ve been living it for the past year, (off and on,) but it wasn’t until this weekend that I finally witnessed the complete terror of it all.

It goes something like this…

Common Grounds Website and Instruction Manual

February 23, 2012 in Common Grounds, Games

Finished (for the most part) with what I guess we’ll call version 3 of the site.

Common Ground’s homepage is now online! I uploaded the game’s manual too, which is worth checking out if you’re curious how the game will play.

All that’s left is to announce the official release! Stay tuned…

Wacky Porn Game 3D Issues

October 7, 2011 in Common Grounds, Games

or  “Things I’ve had to deal with while working on Common Grounds…”

Chief among them has been the 3D program, Anim8tor.

It’s not entirely bad, in fact I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to make 3D. It has the most simple and straight-forward user interface I have ever seen for this kind of software, and that’s saying something!

That said, there are certain issues…

Making guys have sex is hard work!

September 9, 2011 in Common Grounds, Games

Been working on Common Grounds’ sex scenes. I call them “yiff scenes” in the code – is it too silly to use the term? In all honesty, I like the term yiff because it makes it sound harmless, like the difference between ‘visual novel’ and ‘comics’. Nothing against either, just want to keep things light and fun. I’ve made my share of heavy handed work…

Here’s two pictures to show ACTUAL PROGRESS. I kid you not. I’m really working on it!

The reason this is taking so long, at least now, are rendering and putting together these sequences. I’ll get into it more later–back to work!
