First Day: What the Game is About?

Hellow 🙂

The First Day I will be sketching the game and make some brain storming with myself 😦 BUT I will already say what the game will be about. 🙂

So, now I decided, the game will be a “battle, action, rpg” game. In other words, have you already played “Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara” from arcades? “Golden Axe”? Well, it shall be something like this but with a design art medieval and more japanese manga themed.

Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara

The last game that I played with this “theme” was Castle Crashers in the Steam. Is not the best game of the world, but it is very fun anyway and I will be working on something like this from now on for iOS (and later in Android). 🙂

The game won’t be “pixel art”, the sprites shall have high resolution, I think this way will be a little easier and I will be working on a Really Nice System over the game. Anyway I hope everyone likes in the end :).

Pomodoro Technique

Hello Guys, first of all shall explain that I will be using Pomodoro Technique on this project, now what is Pomodoro Technique?

It is a technique created by Francesco Cirillo in the 1980:

The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals called ‘Pomodori’ (from the Italian word for ‘tomatoes’) separated by breaks. Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design, the method has been adopted in pair programming contexts.The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.

There are five basic steps to implementing the technique:

  1. decide on the task to be done
  2. set the pomodoro (timer) to 25 minutes
  3. work on the task until the timer rings; record with an x
  4. take a short break (3-5 minutes)
  5. every four “pomodori” take a longer break (15–30 minutes)

I will be using the software Pomodairo, he does auto-updates from what I’m working on via twitter.

If you want to try this software, it is a freeware and you can download in this link: MAC, Linux or Windows.

Have a lot of others free pomodoro software, but I like this one because of the nice accessibility to twitter and it is very easy to use at all. 🙂

If you want to try some different pomodoro software I recommend too: Pomodoro Time for Mac, Windows and Linux. 🙂

Oh, and if you want to follow me in twitter, i made one for this project just now, follow: @WylNKat
