Veepry: Origins

Welcome Traveler!

You have arrived at the blog for Veepry Media.  Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Caleb Eno.  Among many other things I am an aspiring video game designer and storyteller.  All my life I have enjoyed the process of creating and experiencing stories.  I read and wrote frequently as a boy and carried around backpacks full of notebooks where I scribbled all the things I was imagining.  Not much has changed in that respect, but I have grown a lot in my pursuit of excellent storytelling.  I am nearly finished with my Master’s Degree in Digital Storytelling at Ball State University.  During my time in school I have learned how to critically analyze stories and create compelling worlds.  I am most drawn to the interactive medium of video games.  Though I am still young in my experience with designing games, I have a deep love and passion for them.  It is my desire to work in the video game industry to create well crafted games with meaningful stories.

As I developed this dream, I wanted to create something that felt more official with which to brand my work, rather than just applying my name.  For this reason, I created Veepry Media.  The name and logo for Veepry Media was partially an accident.  I was painting with ink and I created this:

11 - Ink Village

The picture itself wasn’t brilliant but, in the top right corner, I randomly drew these three figures.  I liked how they came out and kept coming back to the design.  Eventually, I would call them the Veepry (pronounced Vee-pr-eye).  They are mythical dragon-like creatures that travel in packs of three.  They also symbolize the Christian concept of the Trinity.   This is the form they currently take:

In my pursuit of storytelling, I have had the opportunity to work on a number of different projects, both collaboratively and on my own.  If you wish to check out some of my work you can find it at veepry.com/projects.html.

My intention is for this blog to be a place where I can actively record the progress I am making on my projects.  Currently, I am completing a game called Under Shadows.  Under Shadows is a text-based adventure game which utilizes html, css, and javascript via the Quest 5 game engine.  This is serving as the final project for my Master’s studies, and I’m expecting to have a chunk of the game finished sometime in June for the defense of my project.  The most updated version of the game can be found at veepry.com/undershadows.html.

As this and future projects develop, I will be posting here with version information and updates.  Feel free to contact me via this blog or at veepry.com/contact.html if you ever have questions or have found a bug in a game.

Thanks for taking the time to check out Veepry Media.  I hope that I have the pleasure of meeting you someday.  Till then, have an excellent day!

 

Cheers!
Caleb Eno
