As I said in my last post here, a lot of things have changed since our little feline boss came hand in hand with this blog. When someone is out of touch with the videogame world, is so difficult to tell how much work is needed to build any kind of videogame from scratch, but those who tried at least once knows that even the most simple game can be a challenge for a sole developer. Unfortunately we belong to a group of crazy people who prefers to put their souls and their minds in impossible projects without expecting anything in return.
But at the end of the day we need to go out of our wonderful word of art, code and melodies to pay some bills or to attend our duties. In this scenario, it’s hard to keep your hobbies, even more if it’s as time consuming as videogame development, but is it viable to do it as a full time job?
A normal life by day and a secret one by night!
Ok, ok! It’s been some time since our last post, a lot of time to be honest. Boss was on vacation for the whole summer, so we could relax a bit and focus on ending other stuff.
Never mind, we are back with new things! This time we are going to start with an easy 3D topic. In this post we are introducing the voxel, pixel’s fat brother, thanks to a free but awesome tool called MagicaVoxel.

Hello everyone! As I promised a couple of weeks ago, it’s time go back to Hexels one last time. Today I’m going to showcase a new feature which is only available for the beta version of Hexels while I’m writing this: 2D animation.

First of all, animation in Hexels is still in beta and there are some bugs, so take care and save the project regularly.
Wow! It’s been a long time since I wrote my last post for Stranded Soft. I’m so sorry, but who will imagine getting a new internet connection is that hard.
I promised more Hexels in my next post, and now I’m here with more Hexels. As they say in its homepage: “Hexels have learned some tricks”, so let’s see what these tricks are about.
Here we go again with Hexels
Hello all again!
Our latest posts here at Stranded Soft were a bit more complex than usually, but this one is easier and also quite enjoyable.
Today I want to introduce again Hexels, a software tool created by Hex-Ray Studios. It’s designed create cool graphics using different shapes as pixels, like triangles or hexagons.
I’ll show how to work with trixels to create isometric shapes faster than ever. Give Hexels a try, you won’t regret it.
Quick example – Awesome, isn’t it?
