Recreating Quake / GoldSrc Movement in Godot 4.0

9 April 2023

About a year ago, I wanted to try making an FPS game using Godot 3.5. I really liked how the player movement in games like Half-life and Quake felt, so I wanted to recreate it. I spent a lot of time trying to figure it out, but I never really managed to get my head around it. Finally, I tried again, and this time I got something that I’m pretty happy with. It might not be perfect, as I still don’t really know what I’m doing, but I wanted to document what I’ve learned and share it.

Website Redesign

10 September 2022

Recently, I decided it was time for a redesign, and I’m excited to share the changes I’ve made. First and foremost, I’ve switched over to Jekyll for my blog posts. Jekyll is a static site generator that makes it easy to create and manage a blog, without the need for a CMS or database. This means my blog is now faster, more secure, and easier to maintain.

Learning Blender

26 October 2020

I want to share my experience with learning Blender to create PSX style low poly 3D models for video games. Firstly, I must say that learning Blender has been a lot of fun. It has been fascinating to see how a basic geometric shape can transform into a complex 3D model with the right set of tools and techniques. However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. There have been a few challenges along the way.

Graduating During the Global Coronavirus Pandemic

5 July 2020

Graduating high school is a milestone that many teenagers look forward to for years. It is a time when we celebrate the end of one chapter and look forward to the beginning of another. However, for many of us who graduated during the pandemic, this milestone was bittersweet, to say the least. The experience was harrowing, and we were left without many friends or much idea of what to do. I originally wanted to avoid writing about this, but as it’s been a few months I feel it might be helpful to write about how I’ve been feeling.

It’s currently using PHP (which I kinda hate but idk what else there is) and some janky code I found on GitHub for the posts.
