So what happened


After the last post I did in 2011 (27th of September) it got very quiet on this site. Not that I stopped drawing, but I didn’t bother with updating here. Also, in December I got together with Jan to work on a different project: a small computer game for the Ludum Dare competition. In this competition it’s the goal to complete a game from start to finish within 72 hours (as a team) or 48 hours (as an individual).

After we worked on that and got second place (!), we decided to really finish the game and polish the hell out of it. This is something we have been working on ever since. We also entered it in a different competition for Pokki (top 10 finish). Our little game “Together Alone” in an older version is still there to download for your pleasure. But, we are way beyond that version by now and the new and improved beta can be found at our new site: Qwok Games.

Other stuff. Well, Panacea is probably dead. Kinda ironic with that title. That project was way too ambitious for our own good. Lots of lessons learned however and some of the work is certainly still salvageable for my own pet project (which is probably also too ambitious, but you need a hobby!). I’ll start posting some of the stuff I did last year in the coming week(s). I’ll probably back date that stuff to approximately when I was actually working on it.
