Why Oregano?

As the development of Space Adventure progresses, the development team and I (really more of a personal selfish act) have christened the first official release of Space Adventure to the public as Oregano 1.0. Oregano 1.0, will finally showcase the hard work we’ve managed to put into Space Adventure: it illustrates our growth as an independent gaming studio and more importantly allows you, the public, to view a snippet of all our hard work

So you might be wondering why this peculiar spice, christened the first playable version of our game. Why not paprika, or kittens, or maybe even Space Adventure V. Puppies 1.0? Well, the answer is simple, really. As the days passed by while the team worked hard on the pre-development phase of Space Adventure (the phase were all documentation for the game was generate.) I found myself one Sunday morning finishing up the game’s schedule and eating some menudo (a Mexican soup filled with meat pieces and hominy). As I was closing up that morning’s work I drastically needed a name for the first version of Space Adventure (really a keyword to use the ctrl+f function of Microsoft Word more efficiently). So I looked at my then empty plate to admire nothing more than the small soaked green flakes left in residue in front of me. There I thought and wrote “Oregano”.

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen, inspiration in the form of food!!!

Happy 2014

Hello (fans, friends, and family),

After an obligatory hiatus, the Prototype Studios’ staff is finally back and working (harder than ever mind you). 2013 is behind us and 2014 brings forward an exciting year to develop our glorious baby: Space Adventure. Quite has changed, along with staff members departing and joining, but ultimately our goal stands: to make memories not videogames.

Along with its chilly afternoons, 2014 has given us an opportunity to reevaluate the development of Space Adventure, and as a team has given us the opportunity to make a few changes to generate a release (sometime late this year). The biggest changes involve adding a producer to our team, expanding our design team, and generating different documents that have helped us structure the engine, content and progress of Space Adventure.

In addition, 2014 also has led us to evolve our existing development framework from Java using Slick2D, to Java using LibGDX (http://libgdx.badlogicgames.com/). This change became appropriate the moment we learned about the capabilities of LibGDX. I mean seriously: it lets you develop Android and Desktop games at the same time, what more could you want.

Ok, so now that you’ve made it this far you’re probably asking yourself “So when’s this game coming out”. The truth is that we’re taking it one step at a time. We hope that a playable version (Version Oregano 1.0) will be ready for debugging mid this March, and we’re doing everything in our power to meet this goal.

Thank you very much,

Prototype Studios – Support Indie Gaming
