Furiously implementing and testing as many 2D and 3D behavior systems as possible in the last 3 years to get a handle on game production. Whilst sitting levels 7 to 9 in Game Development in D.I.T. the goal was to complete ten playable games in succession . This was to to rid my mind of game and design preconceptions, flush out the bad ideas and get a feeling for the work involved in producing a game at any specific level of quality.
The quick list below gave me about 14 playables. I hope to do a quick postmortem on each . All games were shown and tested in public as often as possible and outside the academic environment. The more tested games were shown at Dubludo meetups , One Game a Month Dublin and larger events such as DublinComicCon and Eirtakon.

For the some games I worked with a coder and an animator as a team. A synergy emerged from our complimentary and overlapping skill-sets and the rewards of working with similar minded people on a project became brilliantly obvious.
College has finished and now we push features and improvements to our best games.
Autumn 2016 sees the next stage of the Floaty Ball production. The Press Demo Build will feature new Planetary environment, extra powerups and UI features.
