So it's been a while since I have had an update, and some of you are probably wondering WHY YOU NO UPDATE?!
Well, it's because I have pretty much become the "Lady in Waiting" for Gearbox, that's right I am in the process of trying to get an internship for Level Design (Dream come true!). So, yeah I've been kind of sitting back and waiting to hear the yae or nay so I don't have to drop mid level. Of course this meant that I had to get an online portfolio and, BAM!
There it is. Feel free to snoop around and look at the work that I have, (Which is all on ModDB already it's just more organized). Or if you want to by my super stalker there is a picture of me on my about me, yes I am devilishly adorable. Anyways, I spent my spring break pretty much working the whole time while my friends all went to Padre (so sad). But in the end I got that QA offer and now this so I'm pretty happy, especially since all my friends ended up breaking some expensive object or losing said object. BRILLIANT!
So, I ended up buying the domain through GoDaddy, and today I got a call at 11am and it went something along these lines:
GoDaddy: "Hi is this Mr. Ian Own?"
GoDaddy: "Hi, how are you? I was wanting to take some time to talk about recent activity on your account with the purchase of ianowen.net, was that you?"
Me: *Thinking, you have to be kidding me. "Yeah that is my name."
GoDaddy: *Suddenly realized the situation "Oh of course, well you have a great day then Mr. Ian Owen."
Of course this was the day that I didn't have class till 1pm so I don't wake up till 12pm, lost an hour of my beauty sleep because of an activity check. Though, I don't mind it normally but really?
Alright finally a game update... Sorta
Alpha 2.5 will be hitting Siege of Inaolia soon, as in Today or Tomorrow, unless Aaron forgets then it might be later. Lets just say it is compiled and ready to be posted!
Includes some detail changes to the level, audio (The lava bubbles now!), and AI improvements so that the Orcs will now follow you to the ends of the earth and kill you, its wonderfully horrifying.
So, go get it do whatever to it, break it, if you can, and post a screenshot!
OH, I nearly forgot, I had a fellow ModDB member, sondrebot, asked me some questions about UDK and requested that I do a time-lapse for the next map that I create. This isn't something that I normally see done, so I was happy to do it, unfortunately, if I do get the internship with Gearbox it might be a little longer than expected to get it done. So, be on the lookout!
