My Prank Idea for the Day

Posted by Ektris , in Misc, School Apr 01 2013 · 503 views

So for those of you that don't know, I run a video game club. Tonight we are set to elect a new vice president, as our current vp will be graduating at the end of the semester.

It's somewhat known within the club that I've been frustrated by our current vp because of her recent shenanigans, but that's a story for another time and place. The point is it might be understandable that I could be a little angry.

And I'm counting on that.

I plan on announcing an alternative solution to our vice presidential problem - disbanding the club in a rage and just walking out.

The sad thing is it might be believable coming from me heh... but hey, that should make it a good one. We'll see. ^_^



Oh Yeah - My Game!

I never did link my final prototype, did I?

Well here ya go!

Now, it is indeed just a prototype. So there's only one level... But it was fun to make. :)

And I'm now onto the team game, which will be a totally different game. Need to start working seriously on it over break though..



Amazon Interview

It was... okay.

Very, very, very technical.

And as I predicted, my 90 minute interview really was just a smashing together of the two 45 minute interviews most people go through. So it was split into two parts.

I think I did well enough in the first half, but in the second (which was about trees, which I'm not that great with/haven't fully covered yet in classes) I sorta fell apart...

The interviewers seemed really nice though. I guess that's a plus?

And that'd be bit for my first technical interview. I'm surprised I wasn't more nervous during it. But of course now I have to wait for their decision, which is sure to be loads of fun and not anxiety-inducing at all.

How the heck do you guys do it?

Those of you who have travelled great distances just for an internship.


I was offered just an interview with Amazon - after not hearing anything for 5 months! - and can't bring myself to accept, just for the anxiety of going so far away. Being so alone there. But that's if I even get it, of course...

Not to mention I'm only now really learning about the algorithms and whatnot they'd be asking me about in the interview.

Add to that the stress of being given 5 days to decide...

And I'm a wreck right now.




Meanwhile, In Game-Making

DigDug, Yogscast and 2 more...
Got my first assignment in my game design class - make a game prototype on your own. It doesn't have to be flashy or even all that extensive. If you're making a level-based game, just one leve would even be good enough.

So I'm making a childhood favorite - DugDug!

And last night I chose to get a little creative with the sprites... And am henceforth renaming my game Diggy Diggy Hole.
