Thinking about renaming this blog to, “Michael’s Misgivings.” I’ve finished work on the animated introduction that will play before my game starts, hold the sound, and I’m actually quite happy with it. It required a lot of time and attention (take away: animating’s a bitch) but the payoff was worth it. Once again, my uncertainty is stemming from my lack of experience in creating something for whatever computer tries to run it. I’m lucky enough to have spilled a pint or so of water on my last computer, thus forcing my hand to buy a new, fancy, powerful one, so the introduction runs fantastically on my battle station. Time will tell if that holds true for everyone.
Though it pales in comparison to something done by a professional hand, I think it’s a pretty solid first go at making something move. Feedback welcome! Just forgive the terrible video quality, I’m blaming that on the screencap software and YouTube.
p.s. Don’t ask me why YouTube is suggesting weed and minecraft videos. Don’t. Ask. Me.
