Our First Video Game Is Out!

For the past couple of months, Isaack has been working on something really cool. So cool, that is has given us such a hard time to create, but is finally ready for release. Yes, our first video game is out! It is titled “ProtoHunter” and it will be released as an early access game on itch.io.

After so much hardship that included earthquakes and now a pandemic, we are finally ready to present the world with “ProtoHunter”. Isaack had to do so much work in order to get to this point. And basically as a one-man team. I know almost nothing of video game development, but was trying to be good moral support. This is a must, not just as a business, but as a family. On the other hand, Ashley did design (along with Isaack) the branding and UI for the game. Like, that logo & icon look insanely cool.

As you can see, it is a survival game. In “ProtoHunter”, you play as one of the Proto Hunters as they defend against “The Dread”. These creatures are from another dimension and they are set on destroying everything. It is your job as the Proto Hunter to eliminate The Dread and survive. Pretty intense, right? We thought so too.

We are planning to support this game for the foreseeable future while we continue with other projects. In the coming days, we will be announcing our plan for at least the next year. In the meantime, go ahead to our itch.io store and pick up the game. It is available for just $7.99 and you can play it on your PC.

How To Help Puerto Rico? Como Ayudar a Puerto Rico?

(Version en Espanol ⤵)

Not even a week into 2020 and Puerto Rico has had a pretty difficult year. And everyone here in Puerto Rico has been affected by the earthquakes. Some more than others. There are many ways on how to help Puerto Rico. We even made one that allows you to shop and help local efforts.

But first, here is what Ashley has created to help one local effort. Ashley has a couple of products you can shop on her RedBubble store where all the proceeds will go towards Casa de Esperanza in Ponce. A church where not only are they helping Puerto Ricans affected by the earthquakes, but also has members that were affected by them too.

The design is something she created the other day and shared on Instagram (embedded below) and decided she wanted to help by selling her art for the benefit of others. You can also donate directly with the Casa de Esperanza church through the donation page here. You can put the amount and in the “drop-down” you choose “Terremoto 2020”.

Can’t Buy/Donate Right Now?

Don’t worry because by sharing the word about what is going on helps just as much. Also volunteering and donating your time can make a difference in people’s lives too!

Thank you for your time and if you donated/purchased one of the items designed, you are a rockstar! And to the ones actively helping in the areas affected, God bless you ♥

Hay tanta tristeza y dolor en la estela de un desastre. Un suave sacudir de la cama o un viento muy fuerte se siente como una bofetada en la cara de experiencias vividas en el pasado. Mientras es muy fácil dejarse atrapar por el vacío sin fin de lástima propia, nos encontramos de nuevo en la situación de un trauma colectivo. Validamos la soledad y el miedo porque hay muchos que lo sienten y se siente horrible, pero podemos encontrar alivio en saber que hay miles que experimentan los mismos miedos y soledad que nosotros. Un viento muy fuerte te hace acercarte más aún a los que están cercanos. Un sacudir de la cama te hace correr al otro cuarto. Una luz que se apaga te hace compartir la que tienes dentro. . . No sabemos cuando la tierra saldrá con una de las suyas de nuevo. Sí sabemos que es nuestra responsabilidad ser la luz. No te voy a culpar por sentir miedo mientras otros lo han perdido todo, sus noches llenas de bullicio y la luz de las estrellas. Siente tu miedo, pero tan pronto puedas déjalo ir. Los que duermen bajo las estrellas están en necesidad de tu ayuda. Sé la estrella que trae la luz 🌟 . . . "Alabado sea el Dios y Padre de nuestro Señor Jesucristo, Padre misericordioso y Dios de toda consolación, quien nos consuela en todas nuestras tribulaciones para que, con el mismo consuelo que de Dios hemos recibido, también nosotros podamos consolar a todos los que sufren. Pues, así como participamos abundantemente en los sufrimientos de Cristo, así también por medio de él tenemos abundante consuelo. Si sufrimos, es para que ustedes tengan consuelo y salvación; y, si somos consolados, es para que ustedes tengan el consuelo que los ayude a soportar con paciencia los mismos sufrimientos que nosotros padecemos. Firme es la esperanza que tenemos en cuanto a ustedes, porque sabemos que, así como participan de nuestros sufrimientos, así también participan de nuestro consuelo." 2 Corintios 1:3-7 . . aprovechen a compartir aquí las iglesias y organizaciones en su área que están siendo de ayuda al área sur para que otros puedan encontrar cómo ayudar en su área!

Ni siquiera una semana en 2020 y Puerto Rico ha tenido un año bastante difícil. Y todos aquí en Puerto Rico han sido afectados por los terremotos. Algunos más que otros. Hay muchas formas de ayudar a Puerto Rico. Incluso hicimos uno que le permite comprar y ayudar a los esfuerzos locales.

Pero primero, esto es lo que Ashley ha creado para ayudar a un esfuerzo local. Ashley tiene un par de productos que puede comprar en su tienda RedBubble donde todos los ingresos se destinarán a Casa de Esperanza en Ponce. Una iglesia donde no solo están ayudando a los puertorriqueños afectados por los terremotos, sino que también tiene miembros que fueron afectados por ellos.

El diseño es algo que Ashley creó el otro día y compartió en Instagram (arriba ⤴) y decidió que quería ayudar vendiendo su arte en beneficio de otros. Pueden tambien donar directamente con la iglesia Casa de Esperanza a travez de la pagina de donacion aqui. Puedes poner la cantidad y en el “drop down” escoges “Terremoto 2020”.

¿No puede comprar / donar ahora mismo?

No te preocupes porque compartir la palabra sobre lo que está sucediendo ayuda igual. ¡También ser voluntario y donar su tiempo también puede marcar la diferencia en la vida de las personas!

¡Gracias por su tiempo y si donó / compró uno de los artículos diseñados, eres una rockstar! Y para aquellos que ayudan activamente en las áreas afectadas, Dios los bendiga ♥

Not Merch, It’s Just Creativity

What we are starting and officially launching today is not merch, it’s just creativity. It is that plain and simple. We are not looking to create a brand that just wants to sell stuff. On the contrary, I would call this the “anti-brand”. In a world full of itself, I want to make sure that we can share creativity with everyone.

This may be called the “Acevedo Collective”, but it’s for everyone. As a way to make this platform for everyone, we will be sharing what other people (mostly our friends) make and do. We know creative photographers, designers, and artists that need a platform and we would like to be that platform. But more details on that later.

I just wanted to make sure that people knew beforehand that we are not trying to be influencers or anything like that. Like the title of this post says: “Not Merch, It’s Just Creativity”. We don’t wanna be superstars or whatever. We want to share the things we make and if people like it, they can purchase it. Another objective is that we want to be a hub for other creatives. Not just network, but actually make lasting friendships. Cause let’s be honest, LinkedIn sucks.

In the meanwhile, we will be occasionally updating the storefront with new designs from Ashley, assets from Isaack, and services from myself. We are also planning on doing some other things starting in the new year.

Thanks for reading and supporting us! You can check out Ashley’s Christmas card designs right 👉 here 👈.
