I tried something new this time, I found a quote and tried to interpret it visually. I experimented freely with colours this time. Hopefully the finished article isn't too bad.

Starbound is an up and coming game on development which will be a dynamic 2D platformer. What can we expect? A destructive and hazardous environment, aliens, and Terraria like gameplay! This game is being developed by a team which was originally part of the Terraria development team. One big thing I noticed is that starbound is like a 2D space-stage spore. But it seems that it will be much greater fun than spore's let down.

The basic story of starbound goes something to the extent of this: You're fleeing from your home planet aboard a space shuttle and it is shot down. With your last resort you fire out in an escape pod in some aimless direction. You eventually land in an abandoned space station. You will slowly renew this station back to it's glory and former awesome and set out to explore the galaxy!

There are a couple unique aspects to this game:

Capturing and training aliens [or basically life forms from these planet's you'll be exploring]. Further more at some point you'll be able to claim an entire planet as your home world. You'll be able to populate this world and terraform it to your desire. A big part of the game is exploration right? Thus all the planets are procedurally generated.

It is expected to be released in the summer of 2012, but who knows? But when it does come out... Fun will be had!

Essay Writing

Too many times I have no time because of essays that need to be written for humanities or language arts. These usually involve some overly-complex way of explaining a simple concept to get the best possible mark. Thus, you spend too much time trying to add in everything you possibly could. Which reminds me too much of how writing often bores me. But usually this is because I have no particular interest in the current topic that we need to write upon. Essays needs to be more free without word caps or word minimums, as long as you can express your opinion accurately and strongly you can thus make an argument over anything.

My first attempt at creating digital art. I tried to use my knowledge of sketching and pixeling that I have acquired to help me better understand this field. Without further ado i present to you my handiwork: (P.S there's a mouse somewhere, I wonder if you can find it.

Trisis 2 Development Details

The Trisis 2 Concept, based on the original game which I also have created. Of course, I will upload the first kind of draft or rough game I developed in my spare time on Game Maker 8.0.

Let's begin with the concept itself. Trisis is an arcade style top down shooter. It involves two kinds of defenses, basic turrets and special turrets. The default turrets are turrets you will have in place no matter what. However, the special turrets are chosen by you at the beginning of the game. Whichever turret you choose dictates your play style. Two default turrets are placed on either side of the special turret this forms your defense line. The goal of the game is to defend your base from waves on enemies. Any enemies that fly over your defense line will remove health from your base. When your base loses all it's health you lose.

Invisible Children 'Conspiracy'

After the huge blowout on attention about the KONY 2012 campaign, a lot of people have delved deeper into the subject. It's a rather good thing that they took the time to do so. Invisible Children seem to be slightly single minded or misled. The thing is, they pretty much only focus their attention on Joseph Kony. However, the armies they support for military intervention to arrest Joseph Kony also have histories or raping and pillaging as well as having child soldiers. While they will most definitely have a good heart I suppose. Not only should they be trying to rid the world of Joseph Kony, but along with all armies with child soldiers. Here's a video of one of the many people who have found evidence against supporting KONY 2012:

KONY 2012

People need to know this, and get involved. If you thought the video was too long then here I'll make it short. Joseph Kony is the leader of the L.R.A (Lord's Resistance Army). It's not the fact that he's the leader of a rebel group that makes him so important, it's the fact that he kidnaps children and forces them to become soldiers. Girls he kidnaps become sex slaves. The crimes against humanity he has committed needs to be stopped. KONY must be arrested and it must happen NOW. The goal of the project is to make his as famous as possible or, infamous as possible. Build up a reputation so large of being the worst man alive that he will gather attention from all the major powers of the world. And hopefully be found and arrested. What is appalling is that he avoided attention from us for 20+ years.

The United States of America has responded by sending 100 military advisers to advise the Ugandan army and track down the monster that is Kony. Before this video only 2% of the world knew who Kony was, this has to be changed, our voices must be heard. We need to demand that the powers of the world help stop Kony for his crimes against humanity. This isn't just about Uganda, its about the world. What we're doing is changing history.

The website found here will give information about pledging to fight Kony and for peace. Along with donations and ways to contact the people who will influence the world. 20 culture leaders, and 12 powers. This cannot go on for much longer. We need to stop him, NOW.
