Tuesday talk #4

This time, I want to announce that our work group has grown again! My old friend and microcontroller programmer Grzegorz, asked me about Mamba Games and proposed a little expansion. He always wanted to share his creations on web and for me it was a great idea to create new Mamba part - Mamba Lab.

Tuesday talk #3 - Return of the Mamba

More than two months passed since my last post on blogspot and a lot of things happend and changed since then! But finally I'm back and with good news for you!

Firstly, I want to proudly announce that my old friend and computer graphics designer Fabian, has finally joined Mamba for good! That will make many things easier, because I am at least bad 2D artist and with his help it will be possible to move graphics quality of Mamba games, logos and almost every materials to higher level.

But before this happen, we need to finish our small studio in Fabian house. We will have there two workstations, a piano, a set of microphones and a little space for greenscreen or primitive mo-cap session.

Fabian proposed to change Mamba Games logo from dog's paw to snake. At first, I wasn't completely convinced about this idea. But Fabian is right - Mamba is much more associated with Black Mamba snake than with my lovely dog (that is black, and that's why we called her Mamba). I know, I named my studio Mamba Games at the beginning to memorize my dog friend, but I discused this with Fabian and I agreed to change the logo.

I said, that the logo will be changed - Fabian is actually working at it in his free time, but as I mentioned before, we need to finish our little studio soon.

What I have been doing last two months? Mainly, I have been working on new Mamba webpage, that will be release platform, mini social center and web player for Mamba made games. I have also been working on new server infrastructure for studio configuring VPN for Fabian, making fileservers etc. Nothing very spectacular, but now me and my friend have access to our projects and materials via internet from every point around the world.

I have been also given possibility to purchase new monitor and I am able to record materials in Full HD, at least!

And what in The Tanks? I pushed the work a little forward, making a copule of models and fixing some bugs I have encountered. I want to finish demo mission soon and for this, I need a copule of props I hope to borrow from local amateurish theater, or from my friends, because I would really like to record short dialogue movies for the demo mission.

I will also release some "top secret" documents from The Tanks universe on twitter to shed some light on game plot.

Tuesday talk #2 - In Monday

I haven't been here for a while. I was really overworked lately and last two weeks were one hell of a ride for me, but, despite the fact I was actually working at two shifts, I have spent all my available time on fixing The Tanks and working at some new features.

This week will hopefully be rather calm. I want to record some footages and create The Tanks trailer. I hope to start streaming too.

Monster in Doodland - discovering Escape Doodland: Invader Dash

Have you ever dreamed, while being on boring lessons at school or at work, to be moved into a relam from your own doodles, which you have made on margins of your notebooks? Been able to roam across green plains with hand-drawn creatures, instead of sitting and counting lamps on the celling seventeenth time in a row... Thanks to to small indie studio from Poland, those dreams can become a reality - welcome in Doodland!

Mamba Games in polish starts!

Hi!From the beginning, I have publiced on Mamba Games mainly in English, but due to the fact that I would love to write it in Polish and altering blogspot CMS to support two languages ​​is pointless, because now I have been working on a new website, which is a kind of multimedia center for playing, watching and communicating with other members of the Mamba Games etc. so its a waste of time even on improving the old technology, which for a month or two will be thrown into trash.

Here you can visit polish Mamba Games website!

I want to share with you something that looks amazing and very promising. While I have been surfing the web today, I came across polish studio Odyssey, which focuses on propagating VR technologies. They have a copule of really amazing projects in their portfolio - eg. 400 sq. meters of polish highest part of mountains (Tatra mountains).
