oh no. please. don't cancel the upgrade. what will i ever do without windows 10. t.co/CloRgV5k5s (Today)

trying to do just an 8 frame hand drawn animation and my wrist feels like it's going to explode into dust how does anyone animate anything (Today)

@___discovery @francoisvn Yeah windows only unless someone wants to do the work to get the .net stuff on mono on mac and linux I guess. (Today)

Stumbled across this game engine (Duality) the other day: t.co/gQtVaGR9rL Anyone out there use it? Thoughts on it? Seems kinda neat. (Today)

@thegamedesigner I just heard of SharpDevelop t.co/xvKEYfIAcZ which is apparently based on FlashDevelop which I loved using. (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC this is just one of the reasons I no longer support the skype empire (Today)

@floatvoid yup it is gross it's like playing all games with a minimum ping haha (Today)

@floatvoid yup TVs are terrible. Just saw a huge popular imgur thread about TVs for gaming and they barely mentioned tv lag. Insanity. (Today)

@TyrusPeace Ohh dang I havent tried the text stuff yet! (Today)

@RichFattoretto Yeah! It has so many cool brushes and brush options. I'm still trying to get used to some of the weird keyboard shortcuts. (Yesterday)

Pleasantly surprised by Krita t.co/oEPVemaywX so far it's super solid for art stuff and even has sweet animation tools in beta. (Yesterday)

@unseven Yeah it's like console games first went 3d and visuals were all over the place. I miss this concept art: t.co/xYIFJWZHHJ (Yesterday)

@unseven The visuals are pretty bad :( (Yesterday)

@TimothyFitz Yeah that thing is pretty great on the high end of things, although this has it at 20ms: t.co/4ChUTNyomW (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC great I think if I get 500 of those I should have roughly the power of one normal fork lift (Yesterday)

@Chounard 28ms is... okay... (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC got any hot CyBeR MoNdAy deals on fork lifts ?? (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC ahh a friend of mine in phoenix has a widescreen CRT and it is amazing but unfortunately 10 billion lbs (Yesterday)

@Chounard Can't really find any monitors that are above 27" though that don't shoot up in price like crazy though. (Yesterday)

"this tv is great it has low input lag for gamers" *test shows 45ms* uhhhhhh (Yesterday)

Humble Weekly Sale!

Humble Weekly Sale!

Just a quick heads up, Offspring Fling is currently in the Humble Weekly Sale along with seven other amazing games.

This particular bundle is in support of the software and tools that we use to create our games, including FlashDevelop which was used for Offspring Fling.

It works the same way as a regular bundle, and you get more amazing games if you pay enough moneys. You also get Steam activations for all of the games.

Given the bundle supported projects, has Offspring Fling been recompiled with OpenFL or Haxe?

On Linux, due to an old, unmaintained, Flash plugin, there's an audio delay and frame-rate drops. Flash games only work fine in Google Chrome, which comes bundled with an up-to-date Flash plugin. Would be nice to not have to use it :)

Offspring Fling Linux is still as it was in the Humble Bundle, which is the browser wrapped swf version. FlashDevelop is in the bundle as well, so Offspring Fling hasn't been ported to OpenFL or Haxe. I haven't been able to get the Adobe AIR linux version working, nor have any of the swf wrappers worked so far :(

Thanks for the info :)
BTW, AIR on Linux suffers from the same slowdowns.

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.
