RT @jessefreeman: #1GAM: How to Succeed at Making One Game a Month - Tuts+ Game Development Article t.co/jdLEUp6JaN (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC @traceylien @voxdotcom That's why I just stick with the stuffed plush otters. (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC @traceylien @voxdotcom Yeah man don't mess with otters they're fucking crazy. (Today)

@AsherVo does it have online? can I play it? can I play it and become the #1 ranked castle master in this galaxy? (Today)

@floatvoid @jacobalbano Yeah that's why I had to take SpineAnimation.cs out of Otter's default repository :( (Today)

@HansenKimberley @theBanov t.co/jE5B0hsj14 (Today)

@TannerGill_ It is tough to take internet tutorial stuff and use it. I really recommend this: t.co/RZ27t0nGiO (Today)

@TannerGill_ Ah I see. I would recommend something like Game Maker Studio at this point. It's a pretty safe environment to learn in. (Today)

@jacobalbano @floatvoid Yeah I worry since it's not officially maintained though that it'll be janky and/or missing features. (Today)

@floatvoid that's what their runtime license prevents you from doing though :I (Today)

@TannerGill_ Hm what do you mean by new material? Not sure if I'm totally understanding the question. (Today)

@floatvoid Yeah that was pretty mean of them. I pretty much had no idea if I wanted to use it based off the trial because of that. (Today)

@ChevyRay yeah man people just don't converse like they used too t.co/nDS2HIqfOF (Today)

@floatvoid Yeah, well the main reason I used Spine is that they had a ready to roll C# API. Spriter's APIs seem to be less far along. (Today)

@HansenKimberley @theBanov I don't know POOP about Unity though! (Today)

@helvetica @aeiowu It really is amazing how this shit is all playing out just as predicted without net neutrality. (Yesterday)

RT @helvetica: Oh great. Great fucking appointment Obama. God damnit. Look, I’m loving the healthcare, but this is a huge blunder. t… (Yesterday)

GDC2011: Independence Day

GDC2011: Independence Day

Normally I would probably start posting about Game Developers Conference as soon as I got home from it, but this time is a little bit different. This year I only have 2 whole days of being home in my room before I have to fly out to the east coast for PAX East, so the GDC recap posts will be pretty slow. (I hope that you didn't already forget that Snapshot is sharing a big booth there for the Boston Indie Showcase.)

The first highlight of GDC I will be sharing is going to be probably the best one of them all. This year I gave a 5 minute micro-talk (which I will probably post about later) which somehow lead to me being back on stage in front of the microphone talking about things, doing impressions, and finally executing the Independence Day speech with my dear friend Tommy Refenes.

This magical moment was caught almost entirely on film by the people in the audience, so check it out:


Or look at a a vimeo version.

About

Hi there, my name is Kyle, and I'm a 27 year old kid with adult powers. 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.

Do you want to make a Let's Play of one of my games, or a just a video featuring footage of my games? You have my full permission to do so! Even if you are monetizing your videos, you still have my full permission to use any footage from any of my games. Go for it!
