Making a Board Game

Wanted to update my blog with what I've been up to recently.

I made a board game and have been working on that full time for the past 3 or so months. The name is still WIP but it's tentatively set as "Our Modern Lives."

It's a tile/card based map-building game. The goal is to achieve "Success" and "Happiness" before anyone else can by building your own route.

Here are a few pictures of the current build (v1.20 Beta):

Unity Game Developer

Been a long time since I've tends to do this thing of getting in the way, haha.

Anyways, I've been recently taking a Unity game developer class. Here are some GIFs of what I've been learning--

Day 1 - Learning to move a ball with arrow keys

Day 2 - Using sprites and learning about physics

Day 3 - Flappy Bird clone complete!

Day 4 - Learning how to make a top down space shooter

Day 5 - Adding meteors

Day 6 - Using mouse to turn

Day 7 - Shooting nukes and adding menus

Day 8 - 3D Terrain building and character controllers

Day 9 - Playing with built-in 3D models

Day 10 - Learning about animations and 3D physics

Day 11 - Starting my final project (4orner 3D)

On a side note, if you notice, that last GIF is a 3D version of my hit game from 2 years ago--4orner!

Happy (Late) 2016!

Looking back, I've had a blast ever since I moved back to NYC. I have a few posts that I've been meaning to write but never got around to doing. So instead, I'm going to post a personal update.

I recently moved to Williamsburg in Brooklyn. While it was nice being home with my parents, it also feels pretty good to leave the nest and be independent again.

My apartment
2015 was a good year. I've written 43 blog entries compared to the 12 from 2014. That's a significant improvement and I can consider my first new year's resolution to be complete. And my second resolution was completed when I created 4orner.

This year, I have some equally big goals and aspirations. My mental state is better than ever before and I truly feel like I have come 180° since a year ago

Below are my goals in no particular order:
  1. Work out three times a week
  2. Yoga at least two times a week
  3. Cook Blue Apron three times a week
  4. Code every day (non-zero style)
  5. Throw a party every month

On a side note, if you want a referral for two free meals for Blue Apron, let me know!

Moved to NY

Here's a personal post since I haven't done one in a while. I moved back home.

Brooklyn Bridge

On a side note, I've been so lazy with all of my personal side projects.
