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.

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

July 3, 2018

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.

New major update

April 22, 2018

It took a while to get here but here it is - brand new update for Smintheus Beta. Unlike previous ones this one can be considered as a major update. It's not about bug fixes only but more of new things that were added to aid the gameplay. The course was set on making game more approachable. It has been casualized a bit and made the game somewhat easier as well.
