I'm a college student and indie developer bent on gaining the skills I need to make my dream games a reality. School was not doing much for me so I decided to teach myself, and so far I'm learning a lot more this way. Check out everything I do at www.yotesgames.com

     Sprites are all done and just need to be animated! This is the fun part of sprite making where I can see them in action. I also have to worry about mixing and matching certain sprite pieces for the more complex looking baddies. I'm also gearing up toward running a game development club at school.

This week in game dev can be found below!


  • Rest
  • Enemy Sprite Outlines
  • Found Musicians
  • Created Skype Group To Communicate With Musicians
  • Starting A Game Developers Club

     Lessons Learned:
  • Feels Good Having Someone Else On Music
  • Being This Close To Release Is Way More Exciting Than My Other Projects
  • Starting A School Club Is A Hassle, But We Desperately Need One

       The pain of making these outlines will stick with me for a while and give me a better sense of how long it takes to make a sheet for a single enemy idea. It'll be interesting to see how I approach remaking these guys from an overhead perspective in Unicorn Quest senior year. I might even simplify their designs a bit to keep them smaller and easier to do.



     I'm starting too think about what I'll do for testing my class project next semester. I can run some open pre-alpha tests to get feedback from people who visit my site and see if the gameplay is well received. I don't plan on any big beta tests for Unicorn Training because it's so small and straightforward. I'll just play it myself and have a few friends play through too to look for bugs and unfair scenarios.

Yes it's a big move which I recently took the plunge into. Just 2 months ago I opened up a studio here and have learned a heck of a lot from the business-side and others. I acquired government, business bank and investor funding to kickstart my indie studio. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

I'd rather see ideas for the #New3DS on a next-gen portable. It's too late and just adds to the name confusion. Also remember #CirclePadPro?
