This week I wrote a blog post all about my thoughts on connecting the player to the character that they play. I'd love to see more games make more of a connection.

So this week to break back into the writing mood I've started a new mini-series which looks at ways to hold your players hand throughout your game without necessarily holding it.

Creating Discreet Game Tutorials Image

The series I've pretty much written out ready, just needs expanding upon and will be released slowly over the next weeks, I'm now aiming to write a new blog post every 3 days to keep my mind in writing zone.

Good job I posted so many last time!

My latest post actually talks about the importance of taking a break, which I wrote because I was ready for a break from everything #gamedev related. This is a message we all need to heed regularly as failure to take regular breaks can potentially be damaging.

So this week has been a busy one for blogging!

As I'm currently running a series for ‪#‎Gamedevology‬ exploring practical AI its all systems go.

The first 4 articles you can find below...

1. Exploring Decision Based AI:…/exploring-decision-based-artific…/

2. Adding Priority to AI:…/adding-basic-priority-to-ai-deci…/

3. Using Queues for Priority in AI:…/…/06/using-queues-for-ai-priority/

4. Adding Properties To The World To Affect AI

Now.. if only I got more points!!!

First up not blogged on my personal blog for a while and then I had a random thought about save games this morning that led me to writing the article How loading and saving killed the magic of video games.

I also put a poll out to discover which Topic of the month I would be covering for Thus it was determined that we will be Exploring Artificial Intelligence in Games, an interesting and exciting topic that I can't wait to delve into and write about.

This week I wrote another article for #Gamedevology exploring the idea of how time could affect games could affect the game world, evolve it or alter the experience.

This actually sparked from writing a blog exploring AI in games which I will be crunching down into digestible chunks and releasing over the next few weeks.

In line with where I plan to take my own game dev journey, post judging at a local game jam for Global Game Jam, and in line with my mission to helping future game developers, I wrote a blog post about how collaboration is key to making real gamedev magic
