Animating in the Rain

September 22, 2017

It seems like summer is indeed well and truly over this year as it’s another rather chilly, dreary, drizzly, grey day outside. Fortunately, this week I’ve been spending time on some of the animations for the upcoming Sleuthhounds: The Yuletide Tale computer adventure game. One of those animations in particular is quite apropos and has been a long time coming (four Sleuthounds games in point of fact). Read More

Sleuthhounds History

August 25, 2017

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the return of the timeline puzzle in the upcoming Sleuthhounds: The Yuletide Tail computer game. It was noticed that this particular timeline puzzle deals with events happening across several years as opposed to several hours as has been the case in previous games. This led to the question: is there an official Sleuthhounds historical timeline? Read More
