Fun Fact

The name Tumblr is derived from "Tumblelogs", which were hand coded multimedia blogs.

Sorry for this life-stuff post being so late in coming, I was going to write about it early in the year, but it just didn’t seem like the time when Covid 19 hit.

So mid last year, Stirfire Studios shut down. I’d worked there as lead artist, then creative director for 7 years. It was a small, close-knit team and I owe them so much for putting their trust in me as an artist. I’m super proud of the games we made together, and just gutted with how things fell apart. Surviving as an indie dev team is just so much harder in the current environment.

Early this year, the liquidation went ahead. It’s been good to have some closure. The good news is I was able to get ownership of the games that were my original IP. 

So almost eight years since signing over the rights to Freedom Fall… I actually own it again, which feels bizarre but good! I also now own Symphony of the Machine on Steam (though not on PS4, because *complicated Sony things*). I also have the rights to two more games that were my concepts but never finished, would love to do things with those one day. =)

Right now I’m balancing freelance work (games, illustration, graphic design), my online store and just giving myself some time to heal and figure out what’s next. I still love making games and have a couple of projects on the go.

The rest of the team’s doing okay, employed elsewhere and mostly still in roles related to game dev or teaching, which is great to see. John Robertson/Robbotron has ownership of The Dark Room, which is just as it should be (he’s also doing Twitch streaming these days, in case you’d ever like to be yelled at by Mr Dark Room in person).

Just have to share my latest project with my partner!

You can even check it out in person if you like! http://shadowmint.com/swancon2020/

A local convention had to cancel due to Covid19. Swancon’s the first convention I ever went to - it’s a small non profit speculative fiction convention run by fans.

They mentioned they wanted to do a small online con and I jumped at the chance to help out! My thought was to make a 3D gallery space for all the amazing artists and it just grew from there. 

You can dress up and see others in the gallery, but it also works as a hub for other events. There’s ‘panel room’ doors which link out to the various video streams and a programme guide built in.

My partner, Doug (shadowmint) helped out massively by doing the coding & networking, while I tackled the art. It was a great chance to skill up in Blender! I must have made about 100 quick models for the character creator and environment. As it all runs in a browser, everything needed to be as paired back, few textures and such, so I went for a low poly flat colours look. 

At the last minute one of ladies helping organise asked if we’d like to do an online Masquerade, so I added in dance emotes and a dance floor! We all tuned in to a shared playlist of geeky tunes, danced and chatted - It was just super lovely!

There’s so much we’d love to add for future events and I’m hoping to help out other small conventions and events if I can.

Here’s the little game we made for Ludum Dare 46 (a game jam) over the weekend! The theme was “Keep it Alive” so we went with being a cultist and feeding a baby c’thulu style monster.

You can even play it online here: http://shadowmint.com/ld46/thulu/
(WASD + E to interact, arrow keys + . for player 2)

My partner Doug did all the coding, Sam (https://recsketch.tumblr.com/ You should check out her art! It’s super pretty) painted the super tasty looking food offerings and I did the character art, environment, animation and level building. 

We didn’t *quite* finish - the monster can’t actually die even if you’re a bad cultist parent. We might do a little more work tonight as the jam’s technically still going one more day.

The Running of the Corgis - I finished my epic corgi picture! It’s designed as a wrap around mug (and of course, my corgi Halley’s on there too!).

I know there’s plenty of corgi fans out there like me, so I’ve popped the design up on my Redbubble account: https://www.redbubble.com/i/mug/Running-of-the-Corgis-by-risachantag/45943076.9Q0AD

If you’re also based in Australia/NZ then I have a couple of mugs left in my online store with cheap shipping: https://lisarye.square.site/s/shop

Top of the world (and of course, there’s a Koruk)

More experiments with pixel-like voxel art. Sculpting clouds is so much fun, love the cloud renderer so much! <3 Added a few details and combined a couple of renders for the final picture.

Sorry for all the voxel spam lately (I swear, I’m doing normal 2D paintings too =P )

My partner and I made a game for the Global Game Jam! The theme this year was “repair”. You play as a little demon who is tasked with fixing up a dungeon before adventurers come to smash everything again.

You can play it online here: http://shadowmint.com/ggj2020/

Controls: WASD to move, spam “E” to repair things, space bar to jump. Switches open grated doors and set traps. Try not to walk on traps you’ve set though. =P

Doug: All the coding
Me: Art & level building

One door has a naughty pit trap (whoops, not intentional). Would have loved to add more things, but I think we did okay for a 48 hour jam!

Have fun~

Courtyard - So detailed voxel modelling is actually pretty cool?

The Global Game Jam’s juuust over a week away, so my partner and were discussing what art styles would be doable. He mentioned voxel modelling and I was all… nah I’m not a big fan of that blocky Minecraft style. Googled it. OH WHOA you can basically make pixel art in 3D? Oh. Okay. Sign me up!

I lost my first proper attempt when the app I was using crashed (;_; my beautiful library, it had a fireplace and everything), so this is my second attempt.

I’m using Goxel for the modelling, then rendering in MagikaVoxel. This one took around 8 hours, so maybe a littttle ambitious for GGJ, but I’d love to use a style like this for a game one day.

OMG 👏💕 I love this! I’d like to get into this myself! I’m looking forward to “Dreams” releasing Valentines Day of next month! I’ve always been intrigued by 3D modeling, but I don’t know where to start. This style reminds me of early PS2 games :3 Is Goxel and MagikaVoxel easy and comprehensible of beginners to learn with? Would LOVE to do this some day 💖

So glad you liked it! I’d recommend Goxel over MagicaVoxel for ease of use. It’s pretty easy to learn if you have a look through a few of the Youtube tutorials first. Also, Goxel and Magica are both free on desktop!

I’m using Goxel for the modelling and Magica for it’s renderer and much better exporting tools.

I’m also looking forward to Dreams! Can’t wait to see what people make with it.

Regrowth - feeling overwhelmed and horrified seeing all the bushfire related posts from across Australia and needed to paint something positive.

I’m based in Perth, Western Australia, we’ve had a few significant fires here, but we’re away from the worst horror stories over east. I have friends and family living in rural areas, some who’ve had fires pass near by, and it’s scary. 

We’ve lost so many human lives, more than half a million animals, hundreds of homes, 50,000 square kilometres burnt and the fire season isn’t even over yet. If you’re one of those people who still doesn’t believe that climate change is happening, please go fuck yourself. We are living it.

Spent a few days feeling hopeless and guilty that I can’t afford a big donation, but I’ve made small donations to the Australian Red Cross and Trillion Trees. A lot of Australian flora is fire resistant, I just hope enough has survived to regrow in the years to come.
