Hey, what's up? My name is Henrik Chukhran aka "Neuton Mouse" and this is my blog. I'm planning to post here about game development, music production, sound design, gaming in general and other related stuff. Most of these posts will deal with my own projects but sometimes there will be exceptions. Feel free to subscribe to my newsletter or follow me on one of the social network pages placed below here.

Devtober - Post Mortem

November 3, 2019

Hi everybody, long time no see! At the beginning of October, I started noticing that several tweets on my feed included #Devtober tag inside their posts. My curiosity brought me to a specific page, basically explaining what it’s all about. Devtober turned out to be a kind of challenge aimed for game developers. After reading the article, I decided to take part in this event. Today’s article is going to cover my progress over Smintheus during the challenge, share my experience with cross-compiling Smintheus on Linux to Windows, provide a quick overview over level design and drop a few miscellaneous words.

The Great Underground Level Design

September 19, 2018

Ssup people! In this post I will cover game development span that took place in July, August and first half of September. The main focus lies on level design, particularly great underground levels at the moment. I'll discuss other moments such as bug fixes, new features, improvements over old stuff as well as mention a walkthrough video made by one awesome person. All that, of course, is full of fancy pictures :p

Vacation, Localization and GIFs

June was quite relaxing and somewhat unproductive. After events of previous post I was pretty exhausted. The beginning of summer brought immense chunk of heat which made any attempts to do work even more harder so I decided to take a break from gamedev for good. Although, some side work still had its place during recent moments and that’s what I’m going to talk about today.

Migrating to SDL2

May 30, 2018

Hello everyone. It’s been nearly a month since my last post. I had material for at least two entries but hesitated to post them because I was in a middle of very intensive game development process. This time I went far beyond simple optimization and decided to completely change multimedia library for performance reasons. I’m happy to inform that it was pretty successful move despite the numerous obstacles encountered on its way.
