Youtube has been the focus of much of my creative energy the last 5-6 years now. I’ve streamed a few times during those years, including some on Youtube and some on Twitch. Recently Twitch has really been ramping up work on features that really seem to be aimed at those who focus on recorded and edited content, and it’s caught the attention of many “Youtubers” including myself.
Twitch recently added Vodcasts allowing one to upload a pre-recorded video and then broadcast it “live” to their viewers. These vodcasts are marked as such, which is great, and additionally allow content creators the ability to hang out in their chat with viewers during the vodcast.
I really wanted to try out this feature, as well as some of the newer features so I’ll be spending a bit more time there, and focusing more of my creative energy there as well. I’ll still make Youtube videos, but at least for a little while, I want to try my hand at more active/regular streaming and vodcasting.
Gangz is a private Unturned server upon which a collection of content creators (“Youtubers”) play the game together with the primary goal of creating fun and engaging content for their respective audiences. These content creators divided themselves into three different gangs (or Gangz)…
UPDATE: NOV 2013: We ended up canceling this project, so there will be no further C&K updates.
As some of you know, myself and a few others have been working on our own video game over the course of the last 12 months. We recently pushed out version 1.0 signalling the completion of the game (for now) so that we could begin our next project. That first game (Epic Inventor) has now, at the time of this post, been played by some 60,000+ players, and is being played by 300 new players every day!
With that said, I want to introduce you to our new game, Cards and Kingdoms (the project has been canceled, so the site is no longer available)! Cards and Kingdoms is our second video game, the development of which began a few weeks ago. I have a dev blog for it ( theweem.tumblr.com ) where I share various images, ideas and more, giving you a look into the process from my point of view – so check that out if that sounds interesting. If you want to talk to me directly about it, hit me up on Twitter ( @theweem ) where I essentially LIVE these days.
