Mood board: Backdrop


Starting today I will be posting a new series of games entitled #A9A9A9. I plan to post entries in this series semi-regularly over the course of the next week or two.

I will update this blog post as I submit these games to collect them in one space and maybe to talk about them. For now I will just post the games on their own.

#1: Unity 2019.3.0a10 Personal
#2: Unreal Engine 4.16.3
#3: Godot v3.1.1
#4: Processing 3.5.3
#4.07: Keeshond Game Engine 0.7-dev (Guest submission by Danni)
#5: RPG Maker 2003 (Steam Version)
#6: Clickteam Fusion 2.5
#7: RPG Maker VX Ace

Note: Some of the games in this series will only be able to run on certain operating systems. Why this is necessary will become more evident as the series progresses.

non-game trainwrecks

I've been feeling kind of uninspired about making games recently, but I have been playing a lot of music. I figured I'd try to apply the trainwreck method to recording songs, since it's kind of intimidating to write and record music (especially since I have no good equipment or talent). This is the first like... actual "song" that i've ever written. I kind of wrote it as I went. It was fun! If you squint a bit, it's a late 70s pop punk anthem recorded by actual musicians. Maybe I'll do more.


If anyone objects to non-games, let me know. But I think this fits with the aesthetic & mission of the site. Maybe I'll post other stuff like art pieces and whatnot as I make them too... we'll see!


PART 2: May 20th 2016

I made an updated version of that song... actually this is my 4th attempt, but this time I had a slightly less crappy mic to use. I'm genuinely trying to make a tight and melodic pop punk song, lol. I'm just actually that bad at playing in rhythm. I'll get there eventually...



PART 3: May 21st 2016

I changed the previous recording a little bit. it's getting towards the mix of raucous goofiness and concerning subject matter that i was originally going for... i'm going to let this sit for a while and decide if i want to re record it again in a few weeks. i feel like i could do better, but i don't want to get burnt out on it.



PART 4: May 26th

I guess I'll post visual art here too. Here's a sketchbook page I like. might keep working on it. one thing on my 'learn how to-do' list is to get better at photographing art so maybe I'll try to figure that out this week.

PART 4, VOL. 2: MAY 26th and 1/2

I just made another song today also. look at me, doing things.
