What I'm doing now

This is a now page, updated on 6th July, 2022.

Reading

I love reading multiple books simultaneously. Right now I'm reading the following:

I'm posting about what I have already read during 2022 in this twitter thread.

Previous years: 2021, 2020.

Playing

I'm currently exploring the world of game design & development, so I play various games for research purposes, although most of them not for more than a couple of hours.

The ones I have played the most in the last few months include:

  • The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe
  • Old World
  • Slipways
  • Dorfromantik
  • Zenda BOTW — Just completed a second playthrough, so my kids—who are turning into huge Zelda fans—could experience this amazing game.
  • Civilization VI – the Civ series is one of my all-time favourites so I find it comforting to play a game or two every now and then.
  • Stardew Valley – For over a year now, we run a virtual farm with my kids, so whenever we get a chance our house looks like an old school lan party.

Learning

I'm currently learning about the world of game development & design and experimenting with the Unity game engine.

In the physical world, I'm assembling a garden fort for the kids which is forcing me to learn a lot about power tools and woodworking!

Watching

It has been a while since I watched a movie for adults — a few notable ones I watched with my kids:

  • Encanto
  • Sing 2
  • The Mitchells vs. the Machines

Series I'm watching at the moment:

  • The Office (US) for the 2nd time
  • La Casa de Papel (Money Heist)
  • Ted Lasso

I've been burned before by cancellations so I don't tend to start watching series before they release at least their second season, but I just completed Severance and it's really good — highly recommended! Mythic Quest was also fun.
