UPDATE: Ok, tuning is DONE! Lots more to do but a hell of a good trip...lots of neat stuff we worked out and got working lots, lots better. I plan to show the game to the folks at 1up.com next week and I hope they dig the thing as much as I do! I think it's going to be part of the 1up radio show they do, so I'll post a link when that is up and running!
So, it snowed after all, check it out:
You can't see the massive flakes in this image, but trust me, they were there. So much fun walking in the snow to get to the Incognito offices!
Here is a pic I took of myself walking in the snow. I look ultra serious/mad but I was just really cold!!
I am in Utah this week, working with the gang at Incognito to tune CALLING ALL CARS. So far, one day down and things are looking great. Tomorrow is the real test though as we start to get new numbers and tweaks into the game and see if the fun factor takes another leap forward!
Ok, so two things:
JAFFE'S SPACE ODYSSEY: Started reading the novel of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY! Oh man, it's soooo good! Even tho I know it's based on the screenplay, I have to say that, so far, I like it more than the movie! Never read any Arthur C. Clarke before...this may be the start of a wonderful relationship!
Look hold OLD this book is! I think I bought it thru that Scholastic school program back when I was in 6th grade! The one where you fill out a form of the books you want and then like 6 weeks later, the teacher hands out all the books. Man, I used to get so excited for those...what were those called? Anyway, I'm just NOW getting around to reading it, some 25 years later! Ahhh, books!
SCOTT'S LITTLE WOODEN FOLKS- Scott Campbell- head of Incog and producer/designer on CAC- carves these little statues and figures out of wood. He says it helps him relax and deal with stress. Makes sense to me. Check out his latest: a little carved figure of one of the baddies in CALLING ALL CARS!
Ain't that cool? I love the little bag of loot!
Ok, gotta head off...gonna call the wife then hit the hay. Early morning tomorrow and it's supposed to snow on top of it.
Speaking of, check out these mountains...took this on my cab ride in!
Ain't Utah purdy?!? But man it's cold for a guy who lives in Southern California. It was 80 degrees when I left home today and I hear it's supposed to drop down to TWO tomorrow night. That's TWO my friends...freaking TWO!!!
Ok, see ya'll soon!
