I've been working on a variety of things lately: a new game, acrylic paintings and chess.
My new game project is an experimental platformer called Seimbein.
Seimbein is an infinite exploration game with procedurally generated structures. The characters you encounter in the game(like the one in the screenshot) are also randomized in appearance and the sentences they speak are generated by a sentence generator.
There are a lot of different elements, to mention them all here would spoil the game. For the most part my intention is to leave the player to discover everything themselves.
Seimbein is not very far from completion, however I've decided not to release it until I've released my previous project, Plasma Fist. Plasma Fist still has a lack of music so I'm working quite actively now to resolve that.
Next, I've been doing a lot of paintings with acrylic. I've actually been doing acrylic paintings for quite some time, however, this will be the first time I've ever talked about it on my blog.
You can check out my paintings on my Redbubble portfolio: http://www.redbubble.com/people/johnwallie
On Redbubble you can purchase my paintings printed on cards, tote bags, pillows, iDevice cases and even coffee mugs(or you can purchase regular prints of the paintings as well). I still have most of the originals of the paintings posted on my Redbubble page, so if you'd like to purchase an original, just email me and I'll let you know the details about the particular painting you're interested in and what the price is.
The last thing I've been working on is chess. I play it fairly often online and recently I played in my first tournament(real life, not online). The tournament went well, I was undefeated after the 4th, final round. 3 wins, 1 draw. I got a clean 2nd place(meaning no one tied with me). I quite enjoy the game of chess. It's a great game to stimulate and exercise your brain.
