State of DeepwellBridge

Sony recently had their State of Play presentation. I guess it’s my turn. I currently work with a Minecraft partner as a producer of Minecraft content and DLC. But that’s not where I began. 3 years ago, around this time, I was an independent partner (called oddly enough DeepwellBridge) who released the Minecraft adventure map,…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: The Emotion of Chords

The expression of feeling and story is an important part of music in movies and life.  Watch a breathtaking scene in a movie and odds are there’s a glorious soundtrack playing in the background.  In a ritzy restaurant, the owners play smooth jazz, creating an atmosphere of delight and charm.  How do composers achieve these…

5 Minute Piano Lessons: Counting Music

Music is sound waves played over a period of time.  A pianist must learn to count and feel it while he plays.  The closest archetype that demonstrates this is the tick of a clock.  Sixty ticks a minute tells us whether we will be late or early to an appointment, how long until the next…

Undervalued

I just finished watching Moneyball. Great movie! I always undervalued it though. When it came out, I gave it a hard pass. I avoided it even. It’s about Baseball and I hate sports movies. This one was different because it told the story of undervalued players.  Spoilers if you plan to watch the movie. The protagonist…

Who is DeepwellBridge

DeepwellBridge is an official Minecraft partner run by a single person. He created the Chronicles of Clo adventure map which is a very large exploration and puzzle game that can be bought in the Marketplace. Do a search for “Clo” there, and you’ll find it. But who is he really? Deep began playing Minecraft during…

This is a rough recording of the story… hopefully you will find it warming your hearts right before Christmas. This is the second chapter.  The first can be purchased for a single buck.  You can find it here. Enjoy the second, and very Christmas, chapter about a boy and his giant lovable scaredy-cat named Buford.

Building Anomalous Ruins Part 2: The Old Town of Origin City

The earliest versions of Anomalous Ruins began at an airship crash.  The player simply walked the protagonist outside the debris and found some ruins.  But the protagonist grew into a character with the name Clo.  She came from somewhere.  This “somewhere” eventually become Origin City. I didn’t need to build the city of her birth. …

Building Anomalous Ruins, part 1: City in the Clouds

My first post on Anomalous Ruins introduced the idea of a a city built in the clouds.  The Minecraft adventure map is almost 1 year old now; it currently has 1,154 downloads.  Not bad for some no-name Joe with too much time on his hands. Download the free Adventure Map for Minecraft Java. I have…
