    I've submitted my final sets of coursework for my University course. Including my honours dissertation project entitled: "Using Artificial Neural Networks for the Visual Sensory of Autonomous Agents in a Real-Time 3D Application." It focuses on using Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) as an alternative form of visual perception modelling for AI in 3D video games. By exploiting the pattern recognition abilities of ANNs to recognise objects the AI renders, in a more realistic manner compared to other techniqu...

    Brains Eden, and post summer updates
    First I would like to start near enough where I left off. That is about the Dare To Be Digital competition.

I will give a short update on things now and provide a proper post mortem of my Ludum Dare experience in a few weeks time.

    So lets start with a quick update on Ludum Dare. It was a fun experience but tiring at the end. I had the idea to experiment with a voxel based cube world, which lead to the design and style of t...

    Ludum Dare 26
    This update has been a little later than planned. But I've been quite busy these past few weeks. So for now I'll just give a little short update.
    I am currently taking part in the latest Ludum Dare 48 hour competition. The theme this time around is "Minimalist" so I've decided to go for a simple-ish 3D voxel cube game. I have written a rough guide that I may update a little as the game takes more shape during the competition. if you'd like to have a look it can be found
