@isoiphone Hahhah oh well (Today)

@tylerglaiel that works but I just discovered jumping into a slope with a stack causes chaos (Today)

@isoiphone you seem a bit floaty #kaboom (Today)

@Doomlaser Hmmm there might be stuff to pick up like in Lyle but would go beyond cubes :O (Today)

@GauthamCode No game yet, working on the core platforming physics stuff with pushblocks and moving platforms and all that stuff. (Today)

@raiganburns Yeah I can pull off that kinda work during crunch, game jams, or working on easy stuff I've done 100 times before. (Today)

This is working even better now but I'm sure I'm just missing some sort of crazy bug lurking in the shadows. t.co/NofUiWNkRA (Today)

@sgricci yeah like 90% of my work is on my own projects (Today)

@sgricci Wow nice :o (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC todo: set up the redbubble page for the "dont timebox the void" t-shirt (Today)

@komiga whoa nice these are pretty cool summaries (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC hmm yeah last time I hit anything like that was when offspring fling was coming out on steam, or a game jam scenario. (Today)

@_andrio aaahhhhhhh noooo (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC yeah, grinding on a known quantity seems way easier to sink more time into than exploratory work in the uncharted void (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC jesus what the eff (Today)

@_andrio it does? :O then why do I feel like such a FAILURE ;_; (Today)

Curious about time tracking because with my tracking I hit maybe 3 to 4 hours a day of actual output, which seems crazy low to me? Not sure. (Today)

@komiga interesting! when did you start tracking stuff and WHY? :O (Today)

@komiga wat :o (Today)

@larsiusprime Also lack of community really. May be a grass is always greener effect when I see other people's engines and stuff ;p (Today)

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 there, my name is Kyle, and I'm a kid disguised as a grown up. I'm making video games and living the indie game developer life in Tempe, Arizona. 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.
