Feels good to make a change!

People who’ve not been to my site for a while may have noticed that I finally updated my banner for the first time in three years. I’m honestly quite proud of it, as I feel it fits my lighthearted personality a great deal better than the somewhat serious-looking photo and old illustrations from my early uni days. It also seems to better reflect my interests, particularly my love of games and, of course, my work on Starbound. Even my immense appreciation of Japan played a crucial part in this redesign, as my new pixel art avatar is based heavily off the illustration I had drawn of me by a charming mangaka in Osaka.

My Caricature: It's really very good!
Yup this one.

I also I finally got around to replacing my old portfolio from my uni days with a fully integrated one that now better represents my current quality of work, particularly in regards to my photography and video editing. If you’re not familiar with my work, please head on over and take a look! Feel free to get in touch with me via email if you’d like to enlist my services! In any case, it feels good to have finally freshened things up around here!

Right now the main goal is polishing up all the the core gameplay mechanics that elevate Starbound from being just a sandbox into something with an overarching goal and compelling rewards for our players. Our coders are hard at work on making this a reality and they have been consistently churning out some absolutely phenomenal stuff as of late, with only greater things to come!
