Asymmetry yrtemmysA

I mirrored Peter in Photoshop today and it hurt my brain. I hadn't realised how asymmetrical he is! This must be how other people see him. Poor Peter. I'll fix you soon… unless you're quite happy as you are. Maybe you're happy at an angle, with crooked hair, one thin foot and one fat foot, maybe I shouldn't try to polish every aspect of your world. Or maybe if I don't you'll never live anywhere but my ipod…

After spending 3 weeks working full time on Peter Potato, it’s probably less finished than before. But…

it is without doubt a much better game (hopefully – so there is a little doubt). The characters are starting to come to life and as I add sounds the environments are becoming more immersive too. Still have a lot to do. It might end up being a strange collection of unrelated mini games, although possibly not strange enough. Hmmm I need another brain to allow me to see what I'm actually doing as opposed to what i think i'm doing. I guess that's what other people are. Need to set up that testing session at Loading. Need to sort out the title page. Need to sort out the theme music. Need to sort out the script, story, sfx, eyeballs, feet, peas, shop, scoring, skateboard PP, second body, horizontal scrolling…. and then get it all to work on iphone3. such fun ­čÖé

So… finally some new Peter Potato screenshots

Organic toothpaste fiasco

Hmmm, not sure they look as good as I thought they did… maybe that hair is still wrong.

I'm in Paris at the moment, taking a kind of working holiday break thing. I have 11 days left before I have to return to normality, which means 11 days full time to try to complete this game. I wonder how possible that is. I fear it is totally impossible. . .

Finally….

I have finally sorted out the virtual server for this website, which means that it's now super fast indeeeeeeed!! Just flick through the pages and see. So fast. So very fast… Oh and I guess this is the first official post – hello world! Philip
