I Love meeting for playing boad game with friend.
I think I like the sense I can get while we are playing.

I am very interested in the face of people’s happiness and sadness while they are playing.
They show many kind of face.

“Sense of accomplishment”,”Feeling that want to win”,”Face of suspicion”,”Face of trust”,”Mind that I’ll want to attack”,”conservative mind”

I am very glad when I can discover people’s emotion.
While I am playing board game with my friend.
I am feeling like this.
“Oh? really? you react like this as a one of human?”

 

tableplaying

By the way I discover impressive human’s face at the table of our place in Game Market also.
That is difference between adults and children.They show me each different face while they play my game.

Adults are very careful playing for each move with serious face. They are thinking next next next next step for not lose pawn. And they want to play without fails. They need plenty of time to think at their turn.

“This is game. Please play easily”
I was talking to them without voice.

But,Children are playing the game more easily with face of curiosity. They move a pawn very quickly without deep thought. They are not bothering from anything and not worried about anything. They experience a lot of win and lose. They challenge again and again.
“Please think a little before you move. please”
I was talking to them without voice.

This Is really the difference between adult and child ?

It may be the difference between the way of life?

Which temper is good ?
“the temper of who want to play without fails” or ”the temper of who want to play with impulse” ?

While I am watching their playing. I was questioning to my self unconsciously,
“Which temper am I living with?”

KickStarterMan of british with typhoon

I had a meeting with mr.John szczepaniak the last friday.

I invited him to my home.
And we ate pizza and drunk some beer.

kimura&john

kimura & Mr john szczepaniak

 

He is the man who try to make a book of japanese video game.

The Untold History of Japanese Game Developer.

He came here at the day when new typhoon was coming to tokyo and it  was incredibly windy and rainy.
I have to call him “the man of typhoon” :-)

I wanted to know what he is. And I was interested in what he was going to ask me.
After all, He asked me about my past story a lot, moon,rule of rose,chulip, etc.
And I answered good and bad story both a lot.His question was very maniac.

“Did I talk about past too much?”
I am suspecting my self often like this when I talk to people.
But maybe, it was necessary for me to talk about past to somebody.
So it was ok.

 

By the way, while he is interviewing with me, I was thinking different things.
It is about Kick starter of him. He is making book with the money from crowd funding called kick starter. I think he is brave man. His doing is like a real adventure game.

This man was traveling over the sea from far away land, and he is meeting a lot of japanese developer.And he is trying to make interesting book.
I felt very much his ambition of his life and his love for video game.
Why is he coming? Why is he interested in me? why? why?
Maybe, this theme “The untold history of japanese game developers”  must be very important for him.
And I think he can not stop his impulse of creating  this book.

After he went back, I was thinking about my self and kick starter in rain.

rain
Honestly I say “I am very afraid of kick starter and people’s judgement.”
But if I can get strong impulse from my heart, Can I stand in front of audience like him?

My impulse will be coming to my heart or not?
I do not know yet.

I Love my creatures

We had a stage for IndieGame at last sunday.
Some Indie game developer was talking in front of public at Odaiba of Tokyo.
We discussed a lot.

indieculcul

There was a very impressive question.
“While you are developing video game,
  When do you feel good?”

It was really interesting question.
When is the best moment of my making video game?

The moment of that I started project ?
The moment of that I completed project?

While our friend are discussing ,I remembered what I felt long long time ago.
When I was 13 years old.I started to make game.
I remember the first experience of my touching 8bit computer.After I was reading short program list of magazine.I wanted to try to use computer at consumer electric shop.
And I started type alphabet without knowing what it is.

10 PRINT “I LOVE YOU”;
20 GOTO 10

RUN

Then ,TV Screen became like this :-)
I was so surprised.
“Alhabet is moving by my typing alphabet !?”

I can not forget this feeling.I have started to learn programing language called BASIC

And My first game programming is Snake.

After a week,I made one small game called  ”Walking Walking Game”.
IMG_0816

Even though it was not my own idea.but I learned a lot from this snake.

And after that,I made some original small game.
I remember game screen visuals like this.

youngKimuraGame 2

these were very  low quality games.but I felt something good.it was kind of ecstasy.

“Something is moving in the screen by my thought”
“New World appear in TV suddenly like GOD made the world.”

Maybe it was miracle and magical moment.

After all,what is my answer ?

When is the best moment of my making videogame?
Best of my happy time ?

It is happy for me to find out that new strange creatures born in  TV screen by my own way.
This is my answer. How is yours?

Worst Jamming

“What is worst Jamming of making videogame?”

I was discussing about it with my friend,while we are drinking beer.

And I was thinking like this…

 

Is it disease?

desease

 

 

Is it whisky?

whisky

 

 

Is it money?

Actually worst Jamming is in my mind.

 


“Lazy mind”

 

LAZYkimura

I become incredibly lazy man often like this :-(
This man is living in my mind.
And He often appear and says “you don’t need  to work hard ! ”

This is worst jamming for my making game.
