When 2022 started, I hadn’t even created any environments for Nixie. The first three months of the year were fantastic – I learned Aseprite, started making level tile sets, and also learned LDtk to assist creating levels with the new art, but then I dragged my feet on making progress for many months. Luckily from September to December, I really turned things around and made a lot progress on the game that gave me the confidence to keep going!

It’s been a few months since my last dev log entry but I’ve been quietly learning some new software and making some exciting progress on Nixie. I find myself often getting caught up on the creative side of things such as art, characters, story, and music, but as 2022 began, I made a resolution to focus on actually “making the game.”
Nixie is an indie video game about a robot that I started during the covid-19 pandemic as a way for me to learn new creative/technical skills and focus my creativity on something I felt passionate about.
