@ChevyRay @eigenbom I have a W showing up for now #blessed t.co/0RzVOwdYCn (Today)

@ChevyRay @eigenbom Ohh I was looking at the font code you gave me for SDL2 as a reference... but maybe we shall chat again soooon <3 (Today)

@eigenbom eh maybe if I was doing 3d, I've given it a few shots and I just don't like the feel of the workflow for 2d :I (Today)

@eigenbom Sort of. A lot of my utility/helper stuff is instant portable. Rebuilding the rendering stuff though using old code as a guide. (Today)

@eigenbom UHHhhh trying to figure out if FNA is gonna be usable for my next project. Right now I am in font/text rendering hell. ;D (Today)

Okay lets try to take this SharpFont library and uhh somehow... render text with XNA... and uh... *barf* (Today)

@jacobalbano I compiled my .fx file into a .fxb with that fxc.exe program from the direct x SDK. Can be just used on its own. (Today)

this may just look like a pink silhouetted graphic but it represents a shader actually working with FNA yeehaaawww t.co/AbriJFfgA5 (Today)

@flibitijibibo Probably best thing is on google chats pulverk@gmail.com (Today)

@flibitijibibo @larsiusprime Nope I have no XNA projects at all, starting from scratch. Will check out this fxc.exe thingy (Today)

Dear FNA people, what is the process of getting a shader compiled and loaded? (Trying to avoid content pipeline stuff, using just files.) (Today)

@flibitijibibo YUP Going to give it a whirl today! :O (Today)

POOP I totally forgot to put FNA in the poll (Today)

@StegerGames UGGH yeah the music stuff (and shader stuff) is what is making me feel weird about using XNA. (Today)

@larsiusprime HMM Yeah I was going to add that option and then I retyped the tweet and totally forgot -_- (Today)

Hey people that use XNA/Monogame do you use XNA for Windows builds? Or Monogame for Windows & everything else? (Today)

@ADAMATOMIC D E L E T E E V E R Y T H I N G (Today)

@SteveSwink tell johnathan stanley I said whats up (Yesterday)

@braceyourselfok PC~ (Yesterday)

@MattThorson @braceyourselfok @MllePilgrim @JonahD we should do a battle lobby sometime soon with discord or something for voice chats (Yesterday)

PAX10 and Steam Summer Sales!

PAX10 and Steam Summer Sales!

Hey! I really should be writing on my site more often than I am, but that's another topic to tackle all together. For now, I am happy to announce that Offspring Fling has been selected for the PAX10 Showcase!

Image
The game will be on display during PAX Prime along with 9 other super awesome games, and I'll be there showing it off to the world. If I can just brag some more for the moment, I'd also like to note that this is the second time in a row that I've been a part of the PAX10. Last year Snapshot was selected for the showcase!

In other Offspring Fling news, the Steam Summer Sales have officially begun starting yesterday, and that means Offspring Fling is available for an amazingly low price! How low?! Well you'll have to find out for yourself!

It's been exciting times for Offspring Fling all around. Just last week, Offspring Fling was featured as the Daily Deal on Steam, and it was quite the wild ride. I was actually attending EVO during the time that the sale was going on, so it made things especially crazy.

I'm so incredibly happy with how Offspring Fling turned out in the end. It was a project where everything just felt right when I was making it, which doesn't really happen too often when making a game (at least for me.) I'm still aiming to write a little bit more about my thoughts and some of my process about making Offspring Fling, but strangely enough I have a pretty hard time with putting my thoughts about game making into words.

Anyway, Offspring Fling is in the PAX10, and totally on sale on Steam right now so you should totally check it out if you haven't yet. Later!

Jeyjey

That game is soooo awesome.. I'm really gonna get it on SSS.. I think I would buy myself an Super Nintendo if it was also released on that console. It reminds me a bit of the charme of Yoshis Island on SNES with those cute reduced 8-bit (16?) graphic details. :)
