I happened to think back to some of my past projects, especially the ones that never really came into fruition, and I figured there'd be a subject worth discussing in a blog post. One particular project I came to reminisce on was Nomad. Now Nomad was initially intended to be a project that combined literature … Continue reading Thinking back to past projects that failed
Another year is beginning to draw to a close, which means it's time for me to share with you my annual Top 10 of 2017. It's certainly been an interesting year - in more ways than one. I managed to finish not one, but two fairly long-time projects. I half-unexpectedly announced a third project, small … Continue reading Santtu Pesonen’s Top 10 of 2017
Howdy! So, after a couple of months in silence on this front, I felt the need to give you a tiny update on the progress of my current projects. First of all, the next The Santtu Pesonen Project album. It has been progressing, only record-breakingly slowly. Either way, I've finished two songs for the album, … Continue reading A quick update on things
You know, it just crossed my mind that I don't write enough reflective posts on this website. Now what I mean by "reflective" is a post not necessarily related to any projects but meant to reflect on (and possibly offer help for) challenges one might encounter when working on certain types of projects. It also … Continue reading Context in music
Howdy! In case you weren't aware, I recently started putting together a prototype for a possible new game. News on that are coming way later, though. Anyway, following that occurrence, I decided to rebrand my website. It's not a huge rebranding - mainly I just removed the "Level Design" and "Writing" sections. The respective pages … Continue reading Website rebranding + minor re-design
Another year is soon coming to a close. It's been a crazy one for sure - not only for me personally, but for the whole world. Either way, now is not the time to get melancholy, because I'm here to share with you my Top 10 of 2016. So here we go. DOOM  (video … Continue reading Santtu Pesonen’s Top 10 of 2016
Howdy! So this is very exciting news to myself, as one of my dreams lately has been to do voice acting. I hereby happily announce that dream is now becoming a reality! There's a RoboCop-themed mod for Max Payne 2 being worked on by a small team of developers, and one of them recently announced … Continue reading I’m going to be a voice actor!
So today's post is a little less project-focused and a little more motivational... Either way, I hope this'll be a worthy read. I've been working on a new, as of yet unannounced Doom map over the last week or so. It started out as an idea to make a soul-crushingly hard map, but it has … Continue reading The importance of changing up your workflow
Howdy! So I figured I'd post a little update of sorts letting you know that I'll be attending Assembly Summer 2016 next week. The event will be taking place at the Expo and Convention Center in Helsinki from August 4th to 7th. Personally, I'll be at the event from the 4th to the 6th - … Continue reading I’ll be at Assembly Summer 2016!
'Ello! So since I rebooted a rather short-lived venture of mine recently-ish - said venture being known as The Mad Finnish Gamer Show (or The MFG Show for short) - I figured I'd write up a post mentioning it here. The MFG Show is a series of videos in which I review games in a … Continue reading Eh. Why not. (AKA The MFG Show is back!)
