Getting ready to make a game


Sometimes when you make a thing, you'll look at it from a different angle after people leave comments about it. The header image to this dev article was well received and got me thinking "what if this was a game?"

I'm @hawkun, a lowpoly artist and indie games maker, releasing games via my company Dadako Ltd.

To make my own games, I went indie some years ago, after a career spent in the games industry as an artist, then programmer. 
Dadako has just released Questy Chess and Infinity Pinball, I want to make some small games and see where they go.

Enter "Bad Pixels". A multiplayer death match set in the old west, using the retro limitations & stylings of the Commodore64. I'm teaming up with my old pardner in crime Matthew Ivic for some solid authentic C64 tunes.

For this project I'm using 3 main tools (along with VSCode); 

Crocotile3D http://www.crocotile3d.com/
Aseprite https://www.aseprite.org/
Unity3D https://unity.com/




I'll update this devlog with my progress & playable builds, from the very start (now) to the very end (when?) and you are very welcome to join me on this journey.
