Recently I participated in the alternative controller game jam AltCtrl 2014. My entry is called Waves of the Æsir, a one player 2D action game, themed around Norse mythology. You play as 1 of 3 Norse gods and are tasked with guiding your Viking followers home across the stormy seas.
And finally a 3D version, with manual and enemy radar.
Couldn’t get the idea out of my head so here’s a video of a 2D game I made based on yesterday’s blink mechanic.

The packet format is more unusual than those of other sensors I’ve programmed for (e.g. Nexus, Biosemi, Affectiva, BioHarness). The packet format has clearly been designed to be future proof with its use of a variable length payload and infinite descriptors. Continue reading “Doctor Who – Blink”

During lunch I whipped up a quick recording studio with my heart monitor to see what was going on. Below is the test recording I made. Enjoy!
As the video shows I hate spinning bricks; and my poorly coordinated thumbs. Them most of all.
Last weekend we went to the Picasso festival over in Vallauris. The festival is known for its elaborate fire installations, and while I don’t readily associate Picasso with being an arsonist I’m glad someone does because they were rather impressive.
Below are some photos I took of the event: –

Needed a break from job hunting, so decided to record some video of a biofeedback mod I wrote a few weeks back for Left 4 Dead 2. Ideally I wanted to record another mod I developed while at LJMU, but iPad’s are a little more tricky to work with.
