Marvin Hawkins's Blog

 

Hi My name is Marvin Hawkins, I'm an online marketer for a leading beverage distributor. By day, I work on growing my work's online community and social media outreach. By night, I'm a hobbyist game programmer/Designer.

Now that the obligatorily geeky intro is out of the way, here's a bit more about me. Deciding to add more videos on the various projects I'm working on here. I've worked with all kinds of game development tools, but my current poison flavored fun is Unity3D. I play all kinds of games, though mobile and social have taken up most of my time lately. I love to write, and am an avid reader. I also tweet way too much about sports. Follow at your own risk: @MarvinHawkins

Last month, me and a few of my closest friends executed our first game jam. we are all industry hopefuls with no finished game titles to our name. Through the jam, we hoped to finish that elusive first project. Results inside:

I agree with Jeff Vogel 's viewpoint. It 's tiresome the snobbery of 'real ' games industry. I love all games. I love Aquaria, I played an embarrassing amount of Tiny Tower, Angry Birds and Clash of Clans. I personally find that I spend most of my time with tablet ...

Its sad. People love a good pile on. I think that currently works both ways. If the internet approves of something. It 's shared and deemed worthy of praise. If not, then its trash. While several people may not have even read, played, researched, or otherwise tried the thing in ...
