@TommyRefenes YEAH John Hammond was able to place a copyright strike on the painting after google bought it :( (Today)

@Marshall2Re hey thanks! ;D (Today)

Anonymous inside sources confirmed that Google has purchased a pretty cool painting of a Stegosaurus at a yard sale for 0.000000001 billion (Today)

@TommyRefenes dang you got like 9999 pills (Today)

@Livelyivy Oh nooooo I thought we sealed off the murder hole once and for all (Today)

@fncwill I wasn't playing, only saw the screen. (Today)

Nobody is a loser at the Saratoga Casino and Raceway! (You could be a "looser" though.) t.co/b6HOTas7eR (Yesterday)

@PuppyWarrior @MattThorson When the only thing that the reviews mention is the addiction, and it's a mobile game, I don't have high hopes. (Yesterday)

@MattThorson At least when looking at mobile games seeing a bunch of "5/5 so addicting!" reviews is a giant red flag. (Yesterday)

@ChevyRay @ADAMATOMIC Oh really? I was given false info then! Plus resharper defaulted to making private stuff have a _ when I tried it :I (Yesterday)

@codeapparat HMM interessting. I have seen some code bases with initials at the start of variables. I might try this in a quick jam thing. (Yesterday)

@championchap Yeah I think FP is the first place I saw it. (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC Yeah right now I'm just doing lowercase for all private stuff, but I think the C# "official" standard is starting them with _ (Yesterday)

@zenasprime Local scope I just make lower case and try to make them as shortly named a possible. (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC A chill runs down your spine as your sock begins to absorb whatever you just stepped in. Let the games begin. (Yesterday)

@MoviusC I mean underscores to start though. Like private int _speed = 0; or something like that. (Yesterday)

@zenasprime Ah, yeah that's what I'm using for my projects now. (Yesterday)

Flippy Flop Source

Flippy Flop Source

Yesterday I made a quick game called Flippy Flop using Otter. The whole thing only took me two hours or so, and the end result ended up being a relatively clean coded game.

I decided to add the Flippy Flop source code to the Otter source repository on BitBucket in the Examples folder. So now when you grab Otter you'll also get the source for the Otter Pong Game, and the amazing Flippy Flop.

Flippy Flop makes use of the EventRouter included in Otter. The EventRouter was originally authored by some smart Phoenix locals, and is used a lot in their Unity projects. Since it was just a C# implementation I grabbed and it stuck it in Otter. The EventRouter is all about following the Observer pattern. It can be a little weird to use at first, but I'm beginning to see the appeal of it.

(Disclaimer: There may be some bugs in the source for FlippyFlop. I didn't really check it over for memory leaks, which can easily pop up when using an Event system. If you don't make sure you're unsubscribing from events when objects are removed, or clearing the event router, you might find yourself in memory leak city.)

If you have any questions about Otter, or the source code of the game, check out the Otter forums or leave a comment below.

Awesome! I'll give it a shot tonight -- I've been meaning to check out Otter for some time now; it really seems to be coming along.

I think there's a minor typo above? "If you don't make sure you're subscribing from events when objects are removed..." Should be "unsubscribing?"
