You folks asked for it, so here's the closest thing you will have from me (for now anyways). I have been working with the good guys at ReviverSoft on a Start Menu solution based on my research and on their existing product Start Menu Reviver. After my research they got in touch with me and showed me their product that I have never seen. The UI was bad, like mockup prototype experiment-like bad, but the functionality and code was all there!Read More
Just some stuff that really struck me after watching the Microsoft Build 2014 conference.Read More
If it runs on a damn Blackberry Playbook browser... It will run everywhere!
Since I got my domains secured, I’d like to talk a bit about my first and new game I’m currently working on. I never built a game in my life and this is my first try at building a world and interactive experience built for the sole purpose of entertainment. No objectives of productivity, no monetization strategy, no optimization of user experience; only entertainment and storytelling.
That’s my unknown territory: Interactive Storytelling which is basically a description of Video Game. I did build a lot of interactive stuff like interfaces and mobile apps and I’m sure did my part of storytelling through my shortfilms and branding designs, but blending both of them for the sole purpose of entertainment sure looks like a challenge.
But I want the challenge to be more difficult!Read More
...and I want to test how does it blend in a social environment as well as how it can enhance your everyday life. This is a very special product and I always wondered what are the ups and downs of the Google Glass itself, but also of the idea of an on-your-face type of device.
It has been 2 days I have it, I just got my orientation Hangout with a Google Glass person and now I want to share with you how Google Glass will blend and feel in your everyday life.
This isn't a company contract or a venture with someone, I'm building this whole game by myself and it's going to be available to Windows Phone, Android and iOS. I'm working on the whole Art Direction first since I want a clean visual and background story for the game!
ll drop some hints about it from time to time :)
On the technical side Apple is behind the competition.
Yes. It is.
This is an unfortunate fact.
Accept it. Live with it. But most importantly, understand why.
It does not mean in any way that, for you, it is an inferior product –this is very important and at the end it is your own subjective opinion that really matters- but, it does mean that they are lacking in features and function on an objective sense.
Pushing iOS is my next project, looking at the platform, understanding it and its users and of course finding ways to improve/push the platform without breaking the very difficult Apple balance.Read More
WOOHOO!!! Guess who's waiting for Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Halo TV series and awesomeness! Thanks a lot Microsoft :)
This is the console you want!
P.S. On the Dashboard you shouldn't squash the preview of the last open view... it looks really bad. Simply crop the bottom it would look a LOT better. Also, since I can't use my PC through my Xbox because of the micro lag (that would've been perfect), there should be a way to switch inputs just with voice since the XO Kinect is always listening. An easy switch between Input for my Computer and Input for my Xbox would mean that I'll be playing more, thus buying more ;) That's my first 30 seconds analysis of the console! And when the voice works (2/3 times) it's amazing so keep working on that guys!
P.P.S. Also add an easy to find "Downloads" section. Even "Xbox, Go to Downloads" doesn't work!
How are you today?
So, I’m receiving a lot of tweets, emails and messages with the same questions and I decided to take the time to answer them right here and give you some updates about me, my upcoming projects, my visit with Microsoft and what is happening.Read More
