Beautiful and Deadly!

Just thought I'd share my latest illustration with you all. It's an experimental concept image of Anaksha dressed in a black backless dress. Nothing permanent though.

Please feel free to drop me some honest feedback.

A higher quality version can be found in the art portal: ksha-experimental-concept

Platform 2012 - UK Games Expo

2012-03-16 06:52:18 by ArifRocks

If any of you are in the UK why not come to Platform 2012 this weekend.
It's a huge gaming expo being held at Hull University over the course of two days.

The organisers have invited there to give a talk on writing dialogue for video games so it'll be a great chance to meet some fellow NG lovers.

I'll be there on both days so if you do decide to attend then I'll see you there. :)

A New Threat - Released!

2011-11-05 06:12:12 by ArifRocks

The new epic mini-adventure game 'A New Threat' is now online! This full-sized adventure game sets the stage for Dark Angel and contains several random paths (which should give you a slightly different gaming experience each time you play with different puzzles, dialogue, etc). It also has an achievements system as well as a treasure hunt for hidden virgo symbols scattered all over the map.

Check it out here: A New Threat

Have fun and enjoy this awesome new release!

PS: With this out of the way, I may possibly release release the predecessor to this game known as 'Quick Stop' on NG.

Hey guys!

Just to let you all know I have a sparkly, shiny new website up at I've also added a new mini-adventure game there (OK it's just a short game intended to test out the new adventure game engine I've written but at least it's something to keep you all amused while I finish off my larger gaming projects :P ).

Anyway go check it out and feel free to drop me some feedback.

Anaksha 2 Concept Art

2009-05-19 07:38:10 by ArifRocks

Thought you guys might wanna check out the Anaksha 2 concept art. As always your honest feedback is welcome! :)

You can find a larger, ,more clearer version here:

Update: Just a quick note - I know she's a teeny-tiny bit "chubby" around the waists, hips and thighs (and even her arms). This is just a concept image and the main focus is her face (which I'm very happy with). Her body will be slightly more refined for the actual in-game art, and I DO mean only VERY SLIGHTLY. One thing I've always hated is those skeletal, anorexic looking comic book women, which is something I want to avoid.

Second Update: Forget adjusting her waist! I think its just my eyes. I'm just tired that's all. She looks great as she is. I'll leave it at that. :)
