Making Assets: Default Frames

Sneak preview of assets in the making!
A trio of frames to choose from to wrap around the product of your making - to gaze at it or to export it.
Shaky marker, pen scratches, and brush splattering...  

Making Assets: Default Horizons

Sneak preview of assets in the making!

A few minimalistic and geometrical silhouettes of buildings and trees to place on the horizon, starting with the option between the city and the countryside.

Making Assets: Default Skies

Sneak preview of assets in the making!
Figuring out how the default skies will be, their colors, style, and level of detail. Made 3 custom brushes for it: one with stars, one with sparks, and one with dots. Likely to be reusing those in other assets too! The moon is there for reference, but more work will be put into it when making the set containing the different phases of the moon. A separate package for clouds alone to come later as well...

Introduction to EMO

Hey, all! Guess what. I was the type of kid that, when there was no one to turn to, I turned to music. And that’s something that most people can relate to. Some of us just happened to need it more than others and make a bigger deal out of it.

This game portal began thanks to music. More specifically, what got called EMO music. Because of the culture and style that emerged from it. It gradually expanded to cover more, but EMO was what brought it into existence. So, let's dedicate an article to it...

Emo's Coming Back 'Cause He's a Star

This just out! It has black, hot pink, emphasis on fashion and style, and EMO! I could NOT not have it here. I thought this place vibed the most with Avril Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing, but felt emo in da club might just be this place's anthem.

Making Reusable Assets (Interface Graphics)

We’re getting closer! 2021 was about setting down the foundations for what will be a vast world that will continue to grow and evolve for many more years to come (blueprints and such). The wait will be worth it. 🤘🏻★

Making Reusable Assets (In-Game Options)

I missed this so much! Getting back to the making of games - from scratch. And that means I get to build from the ground up what the world of DarkSceneGames will be like. In order to do that, I like to have a few things set in place...

Style Recap

Finding skull-themed items at local stores that don’t specialize in this style after the trend died out was such a pleasant surprise.

But what has happened, really, all these years with style, between the closing and the reopening of DarkSceneGames?

Rewinding Mixtape, Vol. 1

While we’re still pumping life back into DarkSceneGames, do you want to go on a trip to the past, carried by music?
I put together a 'mixtape', including hits from the years 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Emo Is Not Dead?

I moved on with my life, or so I thought, and I’m just trying to do the “responsible” thing, be an “adult”, try and pass as “normal”. Because being emo was “just a phase”. But then I came across this YouTube channel and... Look, I was (am?) as sensitive and moody as emos come, so you can’t call me a poser (pfft, does anyone even use this term anymore?), but this is still hilarious.
