When I first decided to build tools to help manage Cuthbert, I knew I didn’t want to get distracted from developing the actual game for too long. I wanted to build something quickly, then get back to the fun bit.…Continue reading
Well, it’s June and, so far, 2016 has proven to be… challenging.
First, my flat flooded with poo and I had to frantically find another place to live. That wasn’t the best start to the year. Then I got engaged and started planning a wedding with my incredible (and incredibly patient) partner Sam.…Continue reading
Last night, as I subjugated my long-suffering partner Sam to yet another long, sufferable lecture about building Cuthbert – just covering the usual points, what a ridiculously big game it is, how I don’t think I’m doing it well enough, how I don’t know how I can do it better, why it’s important that he tells me it’s all going to be okay every four minutes, that kind of thing – he made a truly fantastic point.…Continue reading

There’s a saying about the best laid plans… Hmm, maybe I should have planned this post better and googled it.
L. Whyte and I decided at the beginning of this (overwhelmingly large) project that she’d create her (overwhelmingly beautiful) artwork in vectors and pass it on to me in a scalable vector graphic (SVG) format, which can be scaled up and down to fit any screen size or device without losing image quality.…Continue reading
