My status this week is: I’ve been streaming a lot of gameplay while sussing out what draws people in to a game. Whether it’s character design, audio direction, or some other combination of magic.
DONE: I’ve been working with OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) and it handles far better than Streamlabs OBS (you pay a premium subscription for a nice theme) or Twitch Studio Beta (Twitch’s proprietary software).
BLOCKERS: Audio mixing is still a nightmare to figure out, and I’m stuck on wifi as opposed to ethernet, which means I can max out at about 720p, 1080p on a good day (but the end-watcher might have to buffer a lot).
GOALS: Back to the Unity Grind…
I am currently working on … Pacing myself, and learning my limitations. I should only compete with myself.
I am struggling with understanding … Git workflows. I have to keep hacking away at it and doing good commit messages that are clean and universal. Style guides are important.
I am finally understanding … Why open-source software is such a boon and we should continue to support it over proprietary software while being a hobbyist.
I have work to show at … If you are curious about my gaming shenanigans, you can see my content here. PLEASE NOTE it is an M-rated stream and we do talk about really silly and raunchy things from time to time. Definitely do not watch it at work without headphones. (And even then, you probably don’t want to be watching TV at work).
