I will be in Bitsummit
with my strange friends from Lovedelic-era,
His name is Kazuyuki kurashima.
Hello! I am Yoshiro kimura of Japanese game designer.
We are so busy to prepare for BitSummit.
Because of that I want to show my new game at Kyoto.
Today I want to introduce my friend who is exploring indie game cave with me.
His name is Kazuyuki kurashima who is the best pixel artist of Onion Games!
He is drawing Boss character very seriously recently.
I have shown some my strange hand drawing GDD before, but it is not possible for us to build with it only.
After I got game rule and visual image in my heart, I need to explain kurashima-san. And He start to draw pixels rapidly. It is really rapid!!
This is the happy moment that my thought and his image become together.
And Engineer and God and some fairy have been watching us from the sky very seriously,carefully.
We are always on the road called strange funny journey.
We are not only Job fellow, but also we are … ?
He have been working with me since 20years ago.I met him in square of Super NES age. And after we left big company, we were working in Lovedelic together.
We often doing something ridiculous things, for example we are talking about Starbucks’s waitress too much, Or we have been often shouting queer voice in midnight together too much.
Lovdelic-era ,when I was explaining my experience what small bird design of passbook was talking to me, then he draw new character for me immediately. The bird name was Yoshida.I love that character. Our conversation was like child play.
At that little king’s story –era, he was a designer of monster. But he had a big operation of brain at that time.
As soon as he got out from hospital, we had a meeting of monster visual design at cafe of Shinjuku. Even though he was stunned a little. He was very happily drinking coca cola a lot and talking about monster characters a lot. He is incredibly super strange guy or workaholic artist.
And he was not only helping me as a character artist, but also he is helping for my art activities often.
Drawing picture for my acting, or drawing pixel character for Ust Broadcasting, going to Switzerland together for exibition.
He is friend for my art and he is my job fellow.
We are having a job. Yes, we need a job. But we love to play like a childhood more than work.
This is very strange funny journey.
Our next stop is Bitsummit in Kyoto
Even though we are children on the funny journey now also, we are still collaborating for game.
And This is some characters of our game.
Do you want to touch them? Please come and play our game.
And if you see me, please say hello or say something..
This is first time for me to join indie game event.
I am so excited.
This game is my newest one.
And this game is my poem.
See you in BitSummit of Kyoto!!
To be continued..
I never anticipated that it was so hard for me to write blog once a week. But I still continue I show what I am doing as game designer.
Let me start from the rest of the last diary. I was writing that our making indie game is like a exploring cave. I want to talk about MAP for cave adventure today.
Indie game explorer without map
I am sure,If I prepare map, It is very convenient for developing video game. And this map is called Game design document. But I noticed this thought was very workaholic. so I gave up to prepare proper beautiful game design document in this project.
Mean that, we do not have proper map for adventure of this cave.
But our project have this rough map.
I said I stopped to make proper beautiful GDD, but we have something surely.
I started to make my handwrite GDD for team since 8 month ago.
This is not proper one. This is not beautiful at all!!
What is important for my making game?
I am still thinking what is good for my style everyday. But I am sure. Hand drawing is very good for my brain. I can order my thoughts easily.
Entertaining people, Honesty, Good fellows, Hand drawing, it seems these are very important for my making game.
Oh, my fellows..
When I was talking insignificant rubbishy idea to them, they showed me their strange questioning face.
I like this honesty.
I love you guys.
