Claudia has injured herself. It happened while working shortly after participating in LvLUp’s Gamejam. Motivated by the occasion, she carried out quite a lot of art intensively which resulted in an inflammation that remains to be seen in what develops.
At first it was just numbness in the wrist area, but then it spread to the fingers and started causing pain.
It’s likely that I won’t be able to continue drawing for a while.
This event has led us to reflect as a team on the conditions in which we work, both in terms of making extra efforts and the tools and positions in which we do it. As well as the material and tools we use. Even though we’re not working full-time on the video game right now, we want to be able to do that one day, and it won’t be possible if we don’t take good care of ourselves.
We hope that she can recover soon and that it doesn’t leave any sequelae.
We signed up for GameJam with the intention of meeting people in the industry and being able to unplug a bit from BTB while creating something different. The result was very good and we are very happy with it. This afterwards incident however, leaves us with a bittersweet taste.
