RVA Makerfest!

Last week at the Science Museum of Virginia I setup a booth to demo my evolution! oculus rift experience for RVA Makerfest! Prior to the event, my friend Ruthie and I took some of the evolved plant drawings people had made, and blew them up to giant foamboard decorations for the booth! Once I got everything set up and Makerfest began in earnest, I had a nonstop line of people from 10am to 5pm, and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. Maybe I’ll show up again next year, who knows?!

More Twitch Streams!

I ambushed another twitch streamer to play some of my games, and she finally did! ChainsonChaos begins talking about my games at around 29:20 and gives a little pep talk about gaming and streaming, then finally gets the first game working at around 34 minutes (evolution!). From there she goes onto play some of my other short Ludum Dare games, and gives another nice pep talk at the end during Moss. Thanks, Chains!

My good friend Ruthie made up her own version of a creature skeleton recently! This is one of the creatures that I haven’t shown anywhere yet which was part of a ‘predator/prey’ simulation. Thanks Ruthie!
