So, I’ve been lucky enough to have been invited to undertake some kick-ass soil research at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) in Umeå, Sweden. After one month (two months to go), my wife and I have seen the weather change from a frosty snow wonderland into something quite pleasant, warm and sunny.
Just added a new track into the library – ‘Stars In Her Skies’; a pensive, hopeful string cue featuring minimal synth and percussion.
Point and click, right? Recently I bought a 2nd-hand entry-level Canon DSLR off a friend, and have been attempting to learn how to use it. I got a chance to hang out at Cleveland Point one afternoon, and I had a bit of a practice with this thing called a ‘telephoto lens’.
Little Big Adventure (also known as Relentless) is one of my all-time favourite games. It was perhaps the first game I completed fully as a kid – something I was immensely proud of. The music by Phillippe Vachey is pretty timeless, and I don’t know if I’ve done his theme justice here – but I hope I’ve given this gaming gem a good showing.
It’s official – I’m now a fully-fledged PhD candidate. My project has been judged, and deemed worthy. Now, I have two more years (maybe 2.5, if I’m lucky) to pull off a cohesive research project, publish my findings, and – if I play my cards right – level up, and earn the right to put Dr. in front my name.
As I didn’t get shortlisted in the EW Demo Contest (#sadface), here is ‘Eidolon’ for your enjoyment.
