A mind map of our thoughts

Despite being brothers, Matt and I actually live in different countries and so most communication is done by email or via the forums. But as we were both in the UK last week we took the chance to discuss the various things which were on our minds regarding our projects. We didn’t get as much time as we would have liked, but none-the-less it was very useful and we produced the lovely mind map below:

Of course, it’s more useful in the context of the discussion which we had but we thought it might be interesting anyway. We’re going to update it from time to time and use it as a method of tracking what we’re currently thinking about. Some of the key points:

  • Work on Voxeliens is mostly focused around distribution at the moment. Matt is talking to Good Old Games and we sent off our Steam application at the weekend. So fingers crossed for that! At some point I’m probably going to investigate the possibility of bringing the game to mobile devices.
  • PolyVox has picked up again with a lot of commits recently. We’re focused on trying to get a release out so we can then think about integrating other peoples contributions. On that note, Matt has pointed out that we are not using Git very effectively (I basically treat it like SVN) so we will investigate something like ‘A successful Git branching model‘. This should keep Git head a bit more stable.
  • We’ve vaguely discussed a future game project but with no details yet. We’ll probably look at integrating PolyVox with a complete game engine (rather than separate graphics, physics, sound, etc libraries) so we may do some investigation into the options here.

We’ve decided we should try and be as transparent as possible so do ask if you have questions about our plans.
