"Gamepig" from System Shock Remake

Here's a print of the 'Gamepig', a hand-held console found around the Citadel Station in the remake of the iconic System Shock.


It's based on the in-game object but modelled in scratch in 3dsmax, with lots of subtle details added for realism and print reliability. It's pretty big, so I gave it a print on my Saturn 2 8k with SUNLU water washable resin.

I really like how satisfyingly chunky it feels in the hands. For now I printed out a fake smashed screen and put that on the panel, but a future project might be me putting a RPi with screen inside it for a display piece.

After printing and some tidying up, I painted with random Vallejo paints (mostly airbrushed) and grimed it up.

Who I am

I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.

From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.

I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.
