What Is UG?

Welcome to my Game Design And Illustration Blog

    Undergroundies is a game development studio based in the cold state of Wisconsin, a one man team, I am the only member. My name is Aaron, some call me UG.

    I have been an artist most all of my life, mostly working on small projects and selling canvas paintings. Come February 2013 I bought myself my first tablet and started learning digital art. I knew this was finally the time in my life when I could make my own games so I also purchased Game Maker Studio and started learning basic code.

    The first couple of years I made many prototypes and learned a lot through reading forum posts and watching videos. I eventually dropped my first two titles on Itch.io The Underlings and Override. A year later I released my first real commercial title on Steam called Trigger Saint.

    Now I am working on a project called Uagi-Saba, in development for over two years I have been live streaming it’s development from the start and since have built a strong community around Undergroundies art and games.

A few things about my games.

-I generally don’t make 3d titles, I prefer working in 2d.
-I make my games using Game Maker 1.4.
-Animations are either done frame by frame or using Spine animation software
-All artwork is done in Photoshop on a Wacom Cintiq tablet.
-Sounds are recorded and mixed using Pro Tools And Audacity.
