  1. Past hour
  2. Greetings, a game I have been developing for the past year had reached a point in which feedback is necessary. Why necessary? Mostly because this is a very niche and unique game, little reference exists in other games for what is fun and not fun, only it's niche audience knows what's good for it. After working on it for some time now I found myself unsure of what is fun and no longer fun in this game. If you have experience & passion for Strategy / Management / Simulation games and interested in trying out this game in development, please contact me at and I will send you a build along with a feedback form. (OR VIA THIS POST) Your suggestions would most likely be implemented in the game along with fixes to the things you disliked, so this may be also an opportunity to participate in it's development. And finally most of all, this would be supremely helpful! The Game: A Strategy / Simulation / Management game in which the player takes control over an organization which deals in espionage in medieval times. (Medieval fantasy) Media: VIDEO:

I'm offering some edits for free since I need to build a reel in order to break into the market, so these first ones are on me! Let me know what you need. Let me know what you need and we'll discuss the details. Here's some of my editing work for reference: (mostly work on commercials, book trailers, and corporate videos)
  7. Vorn's Adventure

    Hey, I wanted to show you a cool feature that I added in the newest patch - dynamic resolution. The effect is great, it allows to balance the resolution against the GPU performance. Of course, it won't fix CPU related issues, but this works perfect for all GPU related slowdowns.

  12. Filmmaking

    I just realized that if I’m going to reduce the dynamic range of audio volume, I’ll possibly have to be more precise with dialogue, SFX volumes etc., re-tweaking the hundreds of clips... Or maybe I could just apply a compressor to the whole audio mix...
  13. Filmmaking

    Well done for (almost) finishing! Yeah, I guess it's probably smart to deprioritise festivals right now, considering COVID.
  14. Filmmaking

    Although I listened to it on my living room screen, which I had to put on quiet recently because of neighbours and I realized that I can't hear half the background sounds. Then started reading about good practices for mixing sound and realized I might have to go over the audio mix so that everything is within a dynamic range of just 20 dB or so.
  15. Filmmaking

    Yay, just finished it!
  16. Filmmaking

    @Ben X , well I'm almost done with step 1. now I don't know why but I just couldn't work on the film for months, also because with the coronavirus I had moved my work office to my editing room and I was too lazy to clear the desk for the editing work. But anyway now I had to make these kickstarter pre-launch videos (this also got delayed months) and got back into the habit of editing. I almost finished my film today (yeah, all I needed was one day really :|) and all I need is to add some more footsteps and maybe office ambiance. My music license will expire in about 4 months so I think I will skip step 2. and just put the film online and then start looking into festivals that accept movies that are already online. And hopefully next month I'll do step 5.
  17. Building a home theater...

    Seems complicated Weirdly my projector refused to turn on today, maybe because the 28 degrees celsius indoor temperature... I hope it'll be ok.

  22. Working Hardspace, or Hardly shipbreaking?!

    I usually not into the job games, but this is just really hitting the spot for some reason!
  23. Working Hardspace, or Hardly shipbreaking?!

    Yeeeees I'm also playing this! In a week when TLOU2 and Desperados 3 is releasing, this thing just came out of nowhere and stole my attention away from those. I like games where you're just a everyday workerperson doing a job, and I like zero-G space-sim-stuff, so this is right up my alley. It's cool that Focus is throwing so much money at jazzing up weird niche sims like this and Snowrunner and giving them the AAA-treatment.
  24. Hardspace Shipbreaker! Had no idea this was a thing and suddenly I put hours into the early access! You play as an indentured spaceman tasked with salvaging spacecraft for parts to work off debt. Currently that whole debt thing feels more like window dressing, but boy is the ship snipping fun as hell. Effectively it's like a puzzle of dismantling, caring not to rupture fuel lines, causing explosive decompression, not damaging the goods, etc. You get a sort of gravity gun/tether to move bits and a cutting tool for slicing and dicing. Also have to mind your O2 levels, health if you do something stupid, and thruster fuel. You also work in 15 minute shifts, which may seem stressful, but you can work multiple shifts on the same ship, it's mainly there to encourage you to work consistently and again, remind you that you're on the job. There's also a freeplay mode which can be fun to muck around in, but it removes not only the time limit but gives you infinite health/O2 as well, great for trying to explode ships but takes out the dramatic bits of the career mode. Regardless of the mode, it's got a real zen like quality, very relaxing to play, for the most part. Ships get more complicated as you rank up, the progression from tier 3 to 4 was a huge leap and that was truly the first time I was just dumbfounded on how to approach a job, in a very good way(After surveying the ship for a solid 5 minutes, I immediately caused a violent decompression, then ignited the ships nuclear reactor maybe a minute later by accident.) Did I mention you're flying around in space in first person?

    There's a new Soren Johnson game that's a Civ style 4X game with CK2 elements? Yes, I'm in.
  27. Free Music / SFX Resource - Over 2000 Tracks

    Another Special Request to Everyone: If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a LOT to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :-) That said, I managed to get a couple of new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, as always, with attribution: On My Epic / Battle page: “COMRADES ALWAYS” (Looping) On my Fantasy 10 page: “OF KNIGHTS AND KINGS” (Looping) Please stay safe and healthy.
