Mush (mockup inside)

So much has happened since I was last here, but I shall spare you with the personal details.

I love game making. My problem, that I know many of you share, is actually completing a game. Every time I work on a project I get frustrated with the programming side of things, and give up, and all the code and art that went with it goes to the grave. I am majoring in computer science at my university, but my passion has and always will be in art and design.

So. I have decided to stop trying to force myself to like programming. I mean I'm average at it (at least for the first two years of college); I just want to finish a god damn game already. My plan is to finish all or a good portion of the visual assets of a game and a VERY detailed design document to go with it, and then find a programmer to do the programming side of things.

So anyways, here's what I'm working on.

It's a work in progress, obviously. I'll update as I progress.

I just felt extremely nostalgic for a second.

Yay it's Mush!

Man, that looks like a really cozy cabin… and I gotta say, great job on the trees! Can't wait to see it finished. You better update this! :P

Thanks guys. And I'll be sure to update this regularly. Something's gotten into me lately, feelin' motivated.

I love the shading on the mountaintop there. This is going to look really great when finished. And that cabin is excellent.

Great to see you back. I agree with Mega. I assume the dog/cat is more unfinished than the rest?

actually… i would like to take a stab at this. i have all the free time in the world and need things to work on. outside of multiplayer and d3d i can handle anything you throw at me. i am very stubborn when i want something.

i don't ever use scripts, that's my only vice. i can make the code clean and comment it all though. :c

What are you usually programming in, Mush?

There's this neat third party plugin for Unity3D called Playmaker that simplifies the programming down to a semi advanced series of Wires and modules.

I've tried it, it's awesome. You might like it.

You old sonofagun. Lovely artwork. I'm also partaking in the quest to finish something that I never could program before. Really hope it works out for you. :)
