Cogger’s concepts-01

vin-oC coggersRevenge concepts01Cogger’s Revenge concepts-01:  faces & status indicators development 

The gears begin to turn:  …It had started that a friend, Renges65, and i would start creating a game together within a 2~4wk time-limit―parallel to other game design, art&design, and scripting projects―during the month of may in 2o14.  In accordance with the fate dealt to us by the almighty Wheel of Doom, our game theme was to be “cogs.”   Crunchy, oh-so-munchety cogs―sounds delicious, does it not?

(In case any of you wish to bypass all the shameless, self-promotional rhetoric―regarding Cogger’s Revenge
―that shall inevitably follow and just get on with the game and engage in some cog-bunny devouring, click HERE to play the game.)

Cogger’s Revenge  is basically a variant of the infinite runner, one that Renges and i like to think of as an “infinite eater.”  Personally, to be perfectly  honest Continue reading

gettin’ all Autobotic with the new Optimus Prime DLC~

click to see the trailer on IGN.com ~   >[:p

saw the news on IGN.com post-midnight last night! with this truly Autobotic new DLC in my possession, i won’t even need an Xbox One to fell me some Titans with a friggin’ giant energy axe!  now where can i deposit some energon cubes to pick up this puppy?

as you can no doubt tell from the obvious IGN logo in the bottom right-hand corner of the screenshot, this is totally not my work, save for some minor bit of graphics & text ‘shoppery.  plus, there’s no bunnies involved, at least not that i’ve noticed.  but pixel-pushing schmixels…that voice in the trailer sure does sound like Peter Cullen…

yesiree, lookin’ forward to a 401 frag-count. it’s gonna be dogdamn frakkin’ EPIC~!!

watch the trailer here~!       >[:p 

dealing with a case of rampant…er, crustaceans…in game dev~

gam-rDv_2o14h-crabbiuzP-sho1P-iiS

So…as the year’s gotten busier, my good start in january―with 4 consecutive weekly-posts to this blog―has devolved into one-post-a-month or less… and i’m again burning the midnight candle as little clawed crustaceans scuttle about in some sandy corner of my mind.  Shall this be another monologue about sleep deprivation & contrived self-reflection, or do i actually have something meaningful to say this time around?

Only time can tell…and for the record, it is now  時間5:37a―perhaps a hour or so before dawn, and it seems that my thoughts about a late night snack will more likely be realized as a very early breakfast.

gam-rDv_2o14h-starFishP-iNow that some time has passed (nearly 2 weeks since i’d first started this entry back in the latter 1/3 of feb.) and i’ve gotten some decent bit of sleep with nary a dream about starfish, perhaps we can get on with a blog-post that is Continue reading

what if one were to throw a Cactuar?

**dwai-yownnyownnyownn~**  Some onomatopoeia just don’t work quite as well as others…  o_O

So…some recent conversations with a special friend of mine have left some creatures/summons from the Final Fantasy series bestiary running amok in my mind, such as Tonberry lurking about in the darkness with its cute-creepy nonchalant expression and  wielding a friggin’ Chef’s Knife, or a Cactuar or two just standing there in the vast desert wasteland of my psyche…posed…in its/their seemingly petrified running position.  Wha―? …were the artists & designers at SquareSoft on peyote or something when they dreamed up the charactuar for Final Fantasy VI?  It’d certainly be fun to see the different character-concepts that artist Continue reading

Telc Blast: kickin’ off the 2nd week of the New Year with a nifty new jetpack~

telcB-2o14jan_jetPk-NYy01_P-ii Telcihc の 2o14 new year’s jetpack-thingamjigger … 

7~8 days into the new year 2o14 is still new, right?  At least we’re still in the first 14 days, heh~  So…happy 2nd week of 2o14, everyone!

So far the new year has consisted of some NYE-partying with family & friends, vector Art-drawing, a bit of wine-tasting and one can of beer (so far), and a decent bit of Spelunky ‘ing with some shameless damsel & yeti-sacrificing plus reckless idol-grabbing.  ‘Tis kickin’ off to be not to shabby a year, i’d say.  ^__^

I must admit that the above image may be a bit potentially misleading, as Continue reading

nearing the edge of 2o13…or that of 2o14, depending on how u look at it~

gam03-1_vwHO_Gam-sc02-telcJ-iiHeyo!  After a long hiatus, we’re now right on the brink of the end of 2o13…or the beginning of 2o14, depending on how one looks at it.

So, what better way to wrap up the end of the year than taking a look at the past…from the year before?  Okay, so that probably doesn’t quite make sense, but what the heck.   So…here’s my first vector concept-illustration (from april 2o12) for how i pictured my signature character , the cyborg-bunny dr. julius “oC” telcihc,  would look in a 2D platformer. 

Happy New Year everyone (we’re almost there!), thanx for reading, and cya next year~!       >[:)
