Game Reviews,  The Lazy Designer

When Brent Does Not Write… He Prototypes

So, what have I been up to recently? Well, I’m well into writing novel #6 and planning novel #7 and planning the remainder of the Lazy Designer series. As well I recently released my open source writing organizer. So, I’ve been busy.
I’ve also resumed playing around with the Unity game engine and am making good progress on a prototype. I have a working conversation system and am in a position to experiment with various character and camera controls. Mostly I am doing this just for experimentation purposes. Having lots of fun with it though, and it is a nice distraction from writing.
Just in case anybody thinks I might actually be making a game, here’s an example of a “flash prototype” I did years ago for my kids.
What I’m doing right now is only marginally more sophisticated than this.
