@Capn_Andy some day I'll make it out to this place (Today)

@realgreybob good ole Red Eye Rect (Today)

@nico_m__ today was a good day of fixing edge cases and changing some of my logic, but I might be driving myself insane x_x (Today)

okay done for the day but this thing is working pretty nice I think (I have a hover jump kinda thing going on) t.co/X9M2mjEo2E (Today)

Well there's still some wonkiness to resolve in cases like this and sometimes slopes still cause stack overflows. >:( t.co/L2tVoiLHzg (Today)

@tylerglaiel t.co/D9Rb0pKEc6 (Today)

@saint11 yep all in Otter :O (Today)

@tylerglaiel hahah that definitely makes me curious. I think right now the object on top will just get 0 momentum and fall. (Today)

almost there! next thing to fix is an object resting on multiple moving objects gets moved by each object... t.co/F2S1z263RE (Today)

@kinifi Wasn't world of goo a jam game? Can't think of any others off the top of my head (Today)

@Lumin0via drink 506 lbs of orange juice sleep for 71 hours eat 37 grains of oatmeal and do 1413 push ups and you'll be fine (Yesterday)

@isoiphone Hahhah oh well (Yesterday)

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

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

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

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

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

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 (Yesterday)

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

@sgricci Wow nice :o (Yesterday)

What I'm up to: September Edition

What I'm up to: September Edition

I just got back from PAX Prime up in Seattle and I'm realizing how little on post on my super fancy blog, so this post is going to be an attempt to fix all of that. I've been up to a lot of various things in the last couple months and I'm going to try to sum them all up in a single blog post, YEAH!

PAX Prime 2011
I just got back from PAX last week and I'm still feeling exhausted in all dimensions. Retro Affect had a booth in the expo hall to show off the latest build of Snapshot, so once again I got to go to a really cool video games conference thing with an exhibitor badge and feel all super cool and important. On top of that, Snapshot was selected for the PAX10 which means we got a second booth to manage.


We ended up bringing a total of 7 people to PAX in order to help keep up with the insanity of running two booths at the same time for 3 days straight. It was pretty intense but somehow everyone survived, and we got a handful of press mentions about Snapshot during and after the show. A lot of people are really excited about it, which makes me excited (and nervous) about it. Special thanks goes out to the Closure dudes, the PAX enforcers, everyone that played Snapshot, and our very own gold enforcer assistant for the weekend, Andrew. This guy went out of his way to get us headache medicine, eating utensils, and lunch throughout the weekend, so mad props to you dawg.

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.
