Good Good!

Both projects are moving along very well. This Friday after the RCOS meeting, Nick and I are going to meet with our artist, Eric Newsom. Eric is my good friend and fellow PhD student in the Communication and Rhetoric program here at RPI. We need to discuss how the comic strip art will look. Since we are using other people's gmail, there is no way to account for every possible expression, thus the figures will have to look ambiguous. I am confident Eric will do a great job!

Jeremy has finished gathering, parsing and merging emails and chats and has the foundation setup for the game. Also, next week Jeremy and Eric and I will meet to talk about art for the Game program. Each of these projects contains their own design, programming and artistic obstacles, which makes it quite a challenge!

Interface Mockup

We have a mockup for Gcomic.  It will probably change, but this is what Nick has done so far.  I think it looks great.  Please note that the image inside of the interface will most likely not be the image we use.  I am meeting with my artist this week to talk it over.

Also, Jeremy is plugging away at the game prototype.  Things are looking good!

More Progress

Both projects are on track.

Jeremy is working super hard.  There have been many "little" issues for the video game program, and he has done an amazing job working through them.

Nick is also doing a great job.  His interface looks awesome, and so far he has not run into any parsing issues.

looking good!

Making Progress

Nick and Jeremy are making great progress.
We are definitely right on track.

Jeremy has run into a few parsing issues, but they are not his fault (stupid gmail!), and we are still moving forward with the game prototype.

Nick has a wonderful interface design for the comic strip.  It looks great. 

So far, so good!
