A new big project has started, a videogame!

This week it’s been very busy. The shed is almost done, we’re finishing the inside, then we’ll paint a second coat outside, but nothing interesting to see until the end I guess. Then it comes the Epic Swords project, but I haven’t been able to work on it this week, because between the time spent …

The Epic Weapons series ~ Art Nouveau Knife

I’ve had recently the sudden idea that I could make my knife’s design as a 3D model, preparing the model specifically for 3D printing. This looks like a random idea, but it really comes from the passion for swords and knives, that left me in the past often unsatisfied from the little number of designs …

Endless 2D Terrain Generator

Since I haven’t programmed in a while, in the last few days I decided to do a fast programming exercise: a generator that can make on the fly an endless 2D terrain. I created it in Unreal Engine, and made it with 3D models instead of the usual 2D ones, so it’s in so-called 2.5D. …
