June has come and gone and with that, another class down. Currently Aphelion is engaged in a epic battle with the Level Design class and learning to outmaneuver Gimp in it's angry glory. Little progress has been done (at least as to what I am aware of) on our side projects, but that is to be expected with the new class. Aside, but never forgotten Mansion and more ever lurk in the shadowy recesses of our minds and will soon come to light. Stay tuned!

Project Mansion

Hello Aphelion followers!
  New works in the.. well works, code named "The Mansion" in order. Things are under way with the discovered awesomeness that is UDK. John and I are currently in planning stages of map layout and design with Arimintha and Jeff on the trail of story and design of everything as well. The plan is to get something playable and see how we work and how this works as a whole and go from there. With the new addition of Thomas to the team I feel that we are well underway for greatness. I am very excited with where we are going and am planning on much, much more.


Welcome Thomas.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Thomas to the Aphelion team. Thomas has been apart of the Game Design program for a while (since I started haha) and welcome him to the group. He brings valued input and creative thought to the group. Great things are coming people, stay tuned!

June 6th, the Return

It has been a while, we here at Aphelion have all been busy little bees. Not a whole lot more work done on any of our projects though. But that is ok! Lots of learning has been achieved, ideas formulated, evil plots thwarted and even a few mysteries solved. While it has been slow going there is some big things coming. Particularly the exciting learning and potential in the UDK program. UDK has a lot of potential and seems to be something that can be used for at least one of the projects on the horizon. So keep an eye out for that!
