Yesterday, after a bunch of days studying level design, I’ve started to make my first level on paper.
I’ve found that sketching on paper some bunch of platforms is way more satisfying than do the level directly on my GameMaker Studio project, may be is because of messing around with colored pencil that make me be a child again, I don’t know 😁
Anyway, here’s the first sketches for the first level of the game, let me know any comments on them.
Today I want to talk about what I’m using on my GameDev project, let’s start with the hard stuff:
Unfortunately I don’t have a super duper mega computer like HAL9000, my computer is actually an humble laptop: HP650, Intel Celeron B820 1.70GHz, 8GB Ram, Intel Graphics card; not te best one to play with, but it does its own work (in the future I’ll buy a better one, promise).
I also use a graphic tablet, actually a Wacom Bamboo, one of the first models, but it’s great for me as I don’t need millions of pressure level for pixel art 🙂
And finally a Microsoft wireless mouse & keyboard set, more precisely Microsoft Wireless 800 Desktop
Yes, I’m working on my first game and it will be a platformer set in an retro-style world. Unfortunately I can’t give much more information about it, but I swear I’ll post some screenshots as soon as I can.
The only thing I can show you now is the first small tileset I’ve created for this game, let me know any comment and suggestion about it.
