New Dreams by Lugbzurg
New Dreams
Let us celebrate a new era in videogames! For on the advent of Kickstarter, crowd-funding has become a more viable source of acquiring a budget for game development while still maintaining total creative freedom, allowing one to do away with most publishers in general. While this may mean the end of the likes of Banjo, Kazooie, Simon Belmont, and Megaman, their legacy lives on in the hearts and souls of their developers as the torch is passed to the likes of Yooka, Laylee, Miriam, and Beck in their games leading this new age; Yooka-Laylee, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, and Mighty No. 9!
As anyone currently looking at my submissions thus far has probably noticed, I am quite serious about entering the realm of videogame design as a career. Being an amateur with no real-world experience in the field means I've got to hunt down anything and everything I can find to learn from and understand it all more.

Well, imagine my surprise when I just happened to run into this blog almost by accident, and learned so much from it, having many "Aha" moments along the way?

THE SONIC PROJECT: An adventure in hypothetical videogame design.…

This was mind-blowing. This guy has at least a few hours of legit reliant experience, yet has been able to understand so much to an incredible degree. The motivations has evolved, and the basis has matured. Originally, the hypothetical concept was to be mostly based on Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. Yet, over time, those two games became not good enough. Even after the blog went through so much analysis about the genius of both games to such a powerful degree that I never even came close to noticing. That's saying something. Do take a look at this. A personal favorite of mine thus far has been this reverse-engineer idea to get a story to come out that involves the final boss and instantly reminds me of how C.S. Lewis first came up with the entire Chronicles of Narnia series.…

I spent several hours reading this stuff, and I'm not even done, yet. As if that wasn't enough, the blog also pointed to other sources of information and experience that I have just got to get a seriously-solid look at.

Robert McKee……


A Theory of Fun

On top of all this, I've also got some book called "Reality is Broken (Why games make us better and how they can be used to change the world)" that I've got to start reading. So, I've got so much to be doing, right now! Hopefully, what I've found can assist anyone out there who may have held goals similar to my own. Of course, there's also The Escapist, which I've been to for a while, that also taught me a lot, as well.

Such a pleasant surprise. This has been awesome. Hopefully, it can do something for the rest of you. I should be able to apply pretty much everything here to Koro, Jellybob, Agent Xavier, and various other characters and concepts I hold which I've not yet revealed to all of you!

In the future, I am going to start my own videogame company. I have been creating my own intellectual properties and coming up with installments for years. I've also been planning out some of my own online manga.

I'm a nice guy (or at least I'm pretty sure I am) and I have been called "trustworthy". I am very "Friend Compatable" in the sense that I can become friends with just about anybody.

Current Residence: An action-packed relm inside my own head.
deviantWEAR sizing preference: Something that fits.
Print preference: Like text or what?
Favourite genre of music: In-game soundtracks
Favourite photographer: My older sister.
Favourite style of art: Fusion
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Something that has a screen and can play .wav files.
Shell of choice: Koopa Troopa
Wallpaper of choice: Something with empty space to move all my desktop files to.
Skin of choice: Human?
Favourite cartoon character: Goku? Lunar? Bo-BoBo? Kona-Chan? Edward Elric? Totally unsure, really.
Personal Quote: "Nothing is worthwhile that is all about you."

So, while my DeviantART account has been very quiet, I've been actively trying to get a videogame review uploaded to my YouTube channel. So far, I've got three of them. Would any of you like to take a look?

Pac-Man: Adventures in Time (Just released today!)…

Change of plans. I'm somehow not ready to post the videogame world landscape images I started working on who-knows-how-long-ago, but I have just started a brand-new webcomic series! A manga, in fact! Actually, it's my first original AND hand-drawn comic series in years! It's called "Gaiden Chain" and it is now available to read on DeviantART! It's a bit of an experiment as a prelude for many more comics to come!

For those interested, I have a YouTube channel, and I'm mainly using it for reviews at the moment. In any case, I just uploaded the first one. It's a review of Frogger! (The one from 1997.) Let the games begin...…

I'm thinking of having the agent's full name be "Xavier Lancaster". It has a nice ring to it.

I hope I can get some new pictures out. They've been drawn and scanned. There's just the trouble of finding the time to digitize them all!
