This post was made using my game idea generator. I’m going to be doing “runs” with the idea generator to give you an idea of it’s usage. Today I’ll be using Platform Games as my genre.

Super Mario Maker as a toolset for future developers

Haunted House

My haunted house Mario Maker course.

As a student doing a computer games course I can’t help but wonder how the Games Industry is going to change over the years. When you think about what the first developers were like, you picture coders that went from creating games from scratch. In the present we have many different game engines to use, should we choose to do so. These programmers have such a vast knowledge and they came up with unique ideas and pushed a lot of genres forward. It’s becoming increasingly difficult though not impossible to come up with new genres and ideas.

OpenGL – 2D & 3D Pong

Development, Gaming, Youtube

So in November 2015 I did a Graphics module in which I learnt how to use C++ and OpenGL. I uploaded some footage of the 3D pong in my games portfolio, I have decided to upload separate videos for the pong games as the 2D pong project was unseen. You can find videos below.

Welcome to Tom Poucher Games!

Smash Bros WiiU

As you may know the site first started as tominbound.wordpress.com and featured some less professional content. However as I am nearing the end of my University Career as a Games Computing student I felt like it was time to update the site design, URL and also buy the domain name. So now whenever you want to stop by the site be sure to go to tompouchergames.com to find game development I have done, opinion pieces and reviews.

If you’re trying to get familiar with the new site the footer at the end of the page contains social media along with a trello page, linkedin and a behance portfolio, if you have any inquiries be sure to contact tompouchergames@gmail.com.

Update: Just figured out why https was crossed out and causing warning its because I added the menu buttons as links rather than directly through wordpress pages or posts. All fixed.

If you’ve followed this blog or my Youtube updates you may have wondered why there are so many game projects outside of uni, this blog is even one of them.
