I mentioned last year that I was massively busy with a new venture, Diado Gaming - an indie game studio. Well yesterday we released the game that we've been working on for the past 8 months, Electro Bobble!.

Here's a bit about it:

Electro Bobble is a new vertically scrolling "bullet-hell" style arcade shoot-em-up platformer from Diado Gaming.

In Electro Bobble you play a Bobble of electricity that lives in a thunder cloud. You must avoid falling out of your cloud by jumping between platforms and use weapons and special powers that you collect as you jump to defeat the Electro Meanie minions and bosses.

Electro Bobble is procedurally generated, so no two play-throughs will be the same!

The game has been well received, scoring 8/10 in its first review and garnering the quote "I recommend this game to all gamers [...] You won't regret it.", as well as being featured in quite a few great news articles in the gaming press whilst it was still in development, which is nice!

So, there's a possibility, now that that is out of the way, that I might actually get an hour here and there to do a little photography, if I don't get drawn straight into my next game that is!

Hope everyone's well and enjoying 2013! :D

A little about me: I'm a 35 yr old photographer and artist from Brighton, UK. I've been a member of deviantArt since August 2000 (the join date on my profile is wrong for some reason), so 12+ years now. By trade I run a little indie game studio as well doing the occasional bit of work in the Formula 1 racing industry. When I'm not working (which is very rarely, nowadays!) I'm usually involved in my photography, socialising, gaming, and of course, deviantART :D

I'm your fairly stereotypical geek - I love technology, computers, games, music, reading, popular science, quantum and astro-physics, mathematics (particularly number theory) etc.

I mainly use my Nikon D200 (replacement for my D80 which was stolen along with all my kit a couple of years ago) for the shots I post on here. I also have Holga 120 CFM, Petri GX-1 and Minolta film cameras, although the price of film restricts me from using them much unfortnately.

On deviantArt I'm involved in helping to run a few groups:

  • :icondevbug: - I'm one of the deviantArt alpha testers, and get to test (and break! :D) some of the coolest code on the web before anyone else.
  • :iconeuropeans: - I'm one of the ops here and you can often find me in the #europe chat room.
  • :iconsussexdeviants: - I'm a co-founder here, and help to organise meets for deviants in Sussex, and promote them and their work to the community.

(my group activity is low to non-existant at the moment due to my work commitments)
