In the last week, I couldn’t make a pleasant start. My application download rate has been decreased and eCPM is not promising. As I have written earlier, I had to recap design patterns but you can’t really learn something without practicing.

So I recap SOLID and some of the GOF patterns. While I am recapping, I started to create a game which I can try these patterns. I took some notes on SOLID principles and will write another explanative post about them with examples.

My game seems promising to publish it. I will share some screenshots in the next post. It is a puzzle game that you have to collect all the gems in a maze. I designed the first version with 42 levels with glacier theme. If I can apply good design practices and provide lots of customization and possibility to reskin, I will publish it on the Unity and try to get some revenue. In this case, I will be able to compare two income models which I can get some important lessons.

During the week, I also realized that I don’t remember lots of thing on Computer Graphics. I mean the lighting stuff, rendering equation. I want to be able to write my own shaders so I recapped also rendering equation with BRDF. This week I will read about Spherical Harmonics and Shadows. Let’s see. I am planning to write some series of posts Unity Shaders.

This week “Focus” was my favorite movie. Maybe I affected by the Suicide Squad because Will Smith and Margot Robbie are starring in this movie as well. It was quite a fun movie to watch, besides I always liked the con movies. Because these movies contain the magical compound named intelligence.

I am still playing “Life is Strange”. I almost finished the half of 5th chapter. My full of curious is on the table but I don’t have a lot of time to complete it. I found the 5th chapter a little bit chaotic. Max is stuck in between past and present and some scenes remind me the movie “Inception”. I am going to end it this week.

I started to read a book of Bukowski named “Notes of a Dirty Old Man”. It is a very old book and actually a collection of underground newspaper columns written by him. Some of the stories don’t really mean anything to me (maybe I just don’t get it), but some of them are really good and worth to read.

I realized that I also finished two seasons of tv series; the first season of “Stranger Things” and the last season of “House of Cards”. Both were spectacular. If you are seeking to start a new series with a small piece of sci-fi, you should start “Stranger Things” immediately.

Next week, I am traveling to beautiful Prague. My new game should get into a shape and my app should reach 500 installs checkpoint. In addition, I should improve myself on Computer Graphics and Design Patterns more.

So see you soon..
