Game Project Summary: Crypt of Darne

I wanted to write this quick summary of how my Crypt of Darne game project went, now that I've collected data long enough. Without further ado, let's begin!

INFRA: Urban exploration the game

Yesterday I finished INFRA, a game about urban exploration. I'll start this bluntly: INFRA got on my "favorite games of all time" -list. It's just that good. Here are my thoughts about it and I'm sorry that they're spread a bit everywhere. I'm influenced by whisky as I'm writing this, lol.

Tyranny, the game of choices and consequences

Yesterday, after 13 hours of play, I finished Tyranny. I bought the game only couple a days ago and I just couldn't stop playing it, so I finished it rather quickly. Here's some of my thoughts about it.

Tracon 2017 shenanigans

I visited Tracon last weekend with my fiancee Tecsiederp (read her post about Tracon here). I had a lot of fun there, cosplayed a bit and bought some stuff. I'll divide every day in their separate things.

Story about why “keeping the scope small” is important

This is another post from my old devlog I'm transfering here. I really liked this post so I thought I'll keep it.

This happened before I started to make that roguelike, but I feel like I should talk about this, I think it’s important for the newcomers in gamedev. This is gonna be an incoherent rambling, but I hope my point comes across.

Crypt of Darne devlog masterpost

Since I'm migrating all my devlogs here, so I'm making a masterpost for anything Crypt of Darne related. In future all my game related devlogs will be in this blog, so I can keep everything in one place.

This is a list of separate logs, from the first to last. They're unedited and may be a bit rough, I usually put more effort to the blog posts here.

The "I don't feel like playing" problem

Sometimes when I read internet forums like Reddit to rot my brain, I stumble upon on threads where people are asking stuff like: "I haven't felt like playing anything for ages, what to do?" or "I have hundreds of games but no desire to play." I've never really felt this way since I always find something to play, but I have few tips for people who wish to "get back to gaming" again. Hopefully these are helpful.

Back from the dead?

Hey, just a short update.

Been busy with life and stuff and forgot this blog completely. The whole "one post per week" kind of burned me out of this whole thing too.

Now 7 months later.. Uhh, I don't really have an excuse. I wanted to start making vlogs but I want a nicer camera for that, so I held off all my ideas just in case I get a camera.. And then couldn't write about them. I will try vlogging, but if I can't find a camera or just don't feel like it after all, I'll just move back to writing.

Honestly this is my worst problem: I can't decide. I want to do everything, so I end up doing nothing because I can't pick up one over another. It's a miracle I ever get games done..

Speaking of games, I have a devblog for my games (https://aksdevblog.tumblr.com/ Edit: Not anymore), the  but I may migrate it here, or use the one in itch.io. I'm still not quite sure what to do.

So.. If I got some free time and willpower, I'll write about one of those topics I have on my huge topic list. I may also in future make all the game related things into videos, since they're more fun to show in moving format. I may even remake that Morrowind text post in a video form, I can never really praise that game enough.

If someone has been periodically checking this blog out and not given hope up yet, thanks. Really appreciate that. :)

PS. Join my Discord to kick my ass so I will do more content.

Ah, Morrowind

I've been playing lots of The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind lately. It's an older role-playing game for PC and classic Xbox, but I play it on PC. I got it back in 2005, but I still play it from, time to time. It's my favorite game of all time.
