Week Seven (Reading Week)

Although I spent most of reading week away from work, I did manage to finish Faded and also catch up on some creative writing work. Next week I’m planning to get feedback on Faded and then start to develop my next prototype. While I was visiting family, I couldn’t continue to work as much as I would’ve liked. However, I did take some time to watch a few Lynda.com tutorials on Unity development. This really helped me keep my mind actively thinking about work. I didn’t want to take my foot off the pedal in case I lost some momentum.

In preparation for Andy’s workshop on Understanding Flocking, Crowds and Queues I also watched a JavaScript primer video on Lynda.com as well. I’m hopeful that at the end of the workshop next Tuesday I will have a better understanding of JavaScript. I may decide to make one of my prototypes using JavaScript so that I can get some more experience with the language. I think having multiple programming languages on my CV will also be attractive to potential employers.

Next week I’m going to solicit feedback on Faded and then begin to develop my next prototype. I may contact some charities as well to see if they would allow me to include a link to a donation page or something similar within my games.
