Synthwave Update #7 – Time and Space
Cruisin’ in style!
Last week I decided to splurge a little bit and get a few shirts made. Now we’ll be able to represent the company in style at events!
Tools of the Trade:
What is Trello?
Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into “boards”. In one glance, Trello tells you what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process.
Imagine a white board, filled with lists of sticky notes, with each note as a task for you and your team. Now imagine that each of those sticky notes has photos, attachments from other data sources like BitBucket or Salesforce, documents, and a place to comment and collaborate with your teammates. Now imagine that you can take that whiteboard anywhere you go on your smartphone, and can access it from any computer through the web. That’s Trello!

Internal Milestone 006:
Art and minor polish
This month’s milestone was slowed down again due to contract work, but we still managed to get a few things done that are worth reporting on.
We are working with the guys at PixelNAUTS Games to do a little preliminary art for us to make our prototype look more like a real game and less like a bunch of boring grey boxes. We don’t have any screenshots to share yet, but here is a piece of concept art for the area they are working on. We are currently calling this area “The Medical Facility”. This image was created by our talented concept artist Brian.
The past two years have flown by. We’ve been keeping busy with contract work (mainly Unity console ports….projects to be announced soon!) and working on our own game the rest of the time.
We are still not sure when we’ll be making any announcements about what we are working on internally, but our prototype is starting to take shape, so stay tuned for the monthly progress reports.
