E.A.K. Dev Diary 3

Week one of frantically trying to finish things off before release has gone OK. We didn’t get as much done as I hoped, but more than I feared. I’m not sure if that makes sense. Oh well.

We started using GitHub issues for project management. As a team of three disorganized creative types, we’ve previously had a pretty poor approach to managing our time. There’s a graveyard of abandoned Trello boards documenting our previous attempts at staying organized. We’ve never been able to stick to anything for more than a couple of days though.

1 Year of Drum Roll

E.A.K. Dev Diary 2

Drum Roll is a year old today. It’s been a year since I quit my job and started building a game about rescuing cat gifs full time. Realising this makes me feel weird. The last 12 months have gone so fast and been so strange.

The last big update to the E.A.K. demo was released on the 26th of September, 2014. Since then, we’ve only released tiny tweaks and bug fixes. But on the 28th of September, 2015, we will be releasing the beta version of E.A.K.. This is terrifying.

E.A.K. Dev Diary 1

I created this blog in February, saying I hoped to write one post a week. It’s now mid-August. The only post I ever wrote was the “hey I dun a new blog” one. It seems I’m not very good at this.

The new plan is to do a sort of development diary for E.A.K. My thinking is that if I can write something each week, even just a few lines, I can start to build a habit. We’ll see how that goes. Probably badly.

New Blog.

Updated 18th of August, 2015: HAHAHA I’m terrible of blogging. After this, I wrote one line of a new blog, then completely forgot about it for 6 months. Let’s try again.

Ehhhh. I have a new blog. Let’s see how long this thing lasts…

My plan is to keep things updated with weekly posts about Drum Roll, E.A.K., and other projects.
