Video Game Music

Last week, I noticed I haven’t really made that many game music tracks to use for the games I’ve been learning to make on Udemy, so I registered an account on OpenGameArt.org and started contributing.

The idea is to not be too precious about the quality and just try and stay productive for as long as possible. In time I might delete the worse tracks and leave the good ones.

Block Breaker

I’ve been following a course on Udemy on game development with Unity.

Block Breaker is an Arkanoid/Breakout clone.

I changed the script to move the paddle with the arrow keys.

You start the game by clicking on the screen or pressing the spacebar key.

Click here to play.

Tilemaps Day 2

This evening I continued experimenting with designing pixelated tiles at a 32X32 resolution.

My “Hothead” font is available for sale on Creative Fabrica here.

Tilemap

Lately I’ve been following some Udemy courses, particularly the one on 2D game Design with Unity.

In the course I started learning about tilemaps and so I started drawing some of my own today.

For prototyping the tilemap I made a sample scene, which I found out was useful as an illustration photo for one of my new fonts: Hothead.

It’s fun when the different skills come together and supplement each other.

My new font is available on DaFont here.

Fontstats Plugin

Today I finished a little WordPress plugin I’ve been working on.

It’s a two part plugin, one php script collects data from any Norwegian designer on DaFont by visiting each site, and by the power of Regex-Grayskull it inserts it into a database on my website.

The WordPress plugin then selects the last sampled date and displays it in a HTML-table on any post or page where I insert the registered shortcode.

Here’s the result:

Even more modular

Yet another font is in the works, right now it feels a bit like I’m working in a “pipeline” fashion making multiple fonts concurrently. My script font is basically finished (with some spacing and kerning issues to be addressed if it isn’t accepted on DaFont) and a link will be posted when it’s available on all the sites.
