Game I Worked On - DreamSpanner

Dreamspanner is a game I worked on in college at Full Sail University as part of my Final Project.  I was Art Lead for our team and worked on the level design, the level layout and environment props and textures along with helping out wherever else that I could.  I thought that, overall, it might not be good enough for my portfolio anymore, but I am still very proud of the game, the work I did on it and what we were able to accomplish.  So, I thought I would post it here instead.  Plus, it is still totally playable.  You can see a video on it and download it here.  Below is a description about the game.
Dreamspanner features a young female artist in an oil-painted dream world of her own making.  She must navigate her world by drawing platforms and cubes to manipulate objects such as crashing boulders, treacherous scales, and endless pits of paint-dissolving turpentine.  The game also features turpentine-born enemies for her to combat with her two shapes, as well as a boss that will push the limits of her dream and any players' ability to solve puzzles while under attack.

I Painted a Box During Super Storm Sandy

Last summer I was at Too Many Games doing a Game Jam with QuadraTron that was being run by the Philadelphia IGDA.  You can play our game here.  Anyway, during one of our breaks I ventured out onto the conference floor to see what everyone had to sell, show and play.  I was really impressed by the number of people creating video game related art and creations.  One in particular was creating wooden boxes that you could open up and keep stuff in and she was painting them in different styles including the Super Mario coin box style shown above.  I was really inspired by her work, Midnight Treasure Creations on Etsy, and decided to do one of my own.  It is a tissue box that I picked up from Michael's Arts and Crafts store and painted.  It came in handy when super storm Sandy hit and the power was out for a couple days and I needed something to occupy my time.  I really enjoyed painting it and I hope to do some more physical painting in the future.

I Have a Twitch Stream

You can find a link to my stream channel here.  I stream projects that I'm working on from time to time that I'm able to show to people and I also make tutorial videos sometimes as well.  I usually stream later at night or early morning East Coast hours.  You can check out one of my tutorial videos above.  It is a basic introduction to 3D using Autodesk Maya.  If you like what you see or want to make sure you catch my next stream try following my channel on twitch or following me on twitter @robert_nally.  Every time I broadcast it gets posted to my twitter account automatically and if you follow me on twitch you can set yourself up to get an email every time I go live.  I hope everyone enjoys it and if there is anything you would like to see or have me go over in a tutorial you can shoot me a message at or leave a comment in the section below.
