DAYUM!! Heartbeast Studios #Lecturer “Benjamin Anderson” #heartbeast #uheartbeast

A wonderful lecturer and game designer. Benjamin Anderson pulled me in with his level of knowledge and simply understanding his audience along with vocal projection. He was concise and spoke in the tone which I found to be quite calm and relaxing, there were points where he had a monotone level but trust me I was too awed by the notion this guy was explaining something I wanted to understand in regards to Game Maker Studio. If you are interested in learning game maker studio, which is a wonderful game development tool check out this guy hey has a payed tier or you can check out his youtube videos which are free. If you feel to read my write up further read on. The below was actually written first but it was more me just blabbering on and I felt that should not be what you read first about the Benjamin for more of his work visit the links below. Have fun doing what you do.

Benjamin, where should I start with this talented game developer, gamedesigner, artist and lecturer. Lets start with a thank you. I thank this young man as I venture back into my game development world as without his lecturers on game maker studio I would be quite lost. He made understanding game maker studio quite fun and easier to grasp. How I came across his lectures was via which a friend Kevin(action)Jackson mentioned I should try as they have alot of great courses for cheap. I then saw Ben’s class on Game Maker and it was history at that point. Trying to keep this short so I can get into talking more about Benjamin, I loved the idea of Game Maker Studio but I hated the plug and play way of coding, fortunately Benjamin shared that approach and he wrote in GML Game maker language which was pretty simply my flow. I normally call myself a parttime programmer as I do more technical art related things and well lets not get into that. So back to Benjamin, he is a sure fire talent and is good at his job. My most recent game is based on one of his lessons as I was trying to make a game to work with my animation and here comes a lecture that talked about the very game I wanted to make.


DAYUM!! Amazing Composer, GameDev, Artist #samdillard Sam Dillard!!!

Just came across Sam Dillard’s music on amazon and then later his youtube page, all I have to say is wow. What normally draws me to a product is nostalgia and it occurred to me that is naturally the way to ones heart. Sam has recrafted some amazing remixes of some already amazing tracks which have been redone by many. I am no composer or musician but I simply love well crafted music. The sound or level of production is at the level where I have purchased several of his albums. In all honesty if I invest my hard earned cash into your product sometimes it means you have some form of value in my eyes. I won’t keep my banter going for long as my job is to showcase the artist or product and move along to the next.
The nostalgic throw back that reigned me in was Chronotrigger, Chronocross and Xenogears which came from the square-enix camp.
Sam Dillard has also stated he is a Game Developer and Artist, unfortunately I have not had the pleasure of studying his body of work which entails his Gamedeveloper know how or Artistry hopefully I will eventually make that time.

Just a sample of his greatness. for more check his link out above or below.
