The correct way to UV a sphere.


Positives: The implementation of voice lines is well underway!! Full conversations are active in the scene now, the characters talk out loud with indirect hints to puzzles, and the player has access to all evidence they need to solve the crime! I’ve also finished up the fake eye model to hand off to Cris along with a few more models to fill the room.

Negatives: We’re sweating and its GO TIME.

Looking Ahead: Finish piano model, finalize all voice lines in the game, work on other filler models.

Sydney Oswald, PPJ, Spring Week 3


  • Recording Sessions as scheduled: 8h
  • Database Entry: 3h
  • Ellis Concept: 2h
  • Fake Eye Model: 1h

Total Hours: 14h


Positives: One more recording session and WE HAVE ALL AUDIO!! Working with voice actors has been amazing and has gone pretty smoothly! The sounds guys have been super helpful in getting the studio for us and editing everything down. Samara made a cool thing to organize all the files in the database that I don’t fully understand but it’s easy for me to fill in and hand off to her.

Negatives: We got a bit set back in our last character model we need in, but I’ve already talked with Dan about how we can recover and drafted a concept for him real quick. And boy does this lad have a punch-able face.


Looking Ahead: finish database entry file, final voice recordings, finish eye model and camera model, flex where needed

  • Model ceiling and pillars: 4h
  • Model room objects and clean up already finished models: 7h

Total Hours: 17h


Positives: I’m getting much faster at making models for Cris to texture and shove into the game. The new room model looks super nice and the new pillars are more feel so much better than the old ones. We also have all actors scheduled for dialogue recording and the first two went super smoothly!

Negatives: I feel like I could have gotten a few more models made but other classes take time too.

Looking Ahead: beep beep we cruisin

Positives: THE SCRIPT IS DONE!! So that’s pretty cool. Also I have officially started scheduling all of our actors from both Drexel and Mike Lemon Casting for the first few weeks of spring term.

Pedal to the metal my good bitch.
