This week did NOT go as planned! We've been plagued with internet troubles since a power outage last Sunday, derailing much of my work as I tried to troubleshoot the issue.

#SuzyCube #gamedev #indiedev #madewithunity 
This week was the project handoff to Noodlecake. Going forward, the project will be hosted on their Git repository. I feel like a parent handing a babysitter their kid for the first time! Other than that, I got to work decorating some of the game's more solid levels and working on more translations.

Lessons from Suzy Cube: Level 1-1, How the Game's First Level is Different

#SuzyCube #GameDev #IndieDev #MadeWithUnity 
What makes a good first level? What sets my first level apart from every other level in my game?

In this Lessons from Suzy Cube article, we will break down those goals as they apply to Suzy Cube and how the game's first level strives to achieve them.

The Pyramid of Polish: Recognising Diminishing Returns

#GameDev #IndieDev #GameDesign 
Does the pyramid look pointy when standing at the bottom? This is a question we, as game developers, all need to step back and ask ourselves at some point in a project. Heck, often at several points during a project. So, what do I mean by this? Well it's an analogy I've come up with to represent the diminishing return of polishing a product beyond a certain perceivable threshold to the eyes of the consumer.

Howdy folks! I've been busy on a level redesign this week. I know, I know, I said a while back all the levels were drafted, but I've had this on my to-do list for months.
