is there any better way to start your day than by watching the ssj2 gohan vs perfect cell kamehameha fight (Today)

@ayyang9 it'll stop moving (Today)

@Data01 Hahah, well make it run in C# I guess and I could check it out ;p (Today)

@ForestGameDev (Today)

Getting more and more stable, but the code is getting more and more messy ;_; (Today)

Sometimes I feel like I can't draw anything and then I switch what brush I'm using and that somehow fixes it and I don't know why (Today)

@infinite_ammo @ADAMATOMIC ahhh I love when I suddenly realize I have a lot of red letter media stuff to catch up on (Yesterday)

@infinite_ammo you see a wise man by the name of william shakesman once said brevity is the soul of wit (Yesterday)

@TommyRefenes w t fuck (Yesterday)

@IvoryOasis Really? I don't really see 2d games as having super varied needs as far as asset placement. Tiles and entities seems like enough (Yesterday)

@floatvoid Unity would be cool then I see someone have a nightmare experience with its source control or updating it and I'm like eehhhhh (Yesterday)

Really surprised that there hasn't been some sort of ultimate 2d level editor kickstarter yet like there was for 2d bone animators. (Yesterday)

@Capn_Andy some day I'll make it out to this place (2 days ago)

@realgreybob good ole Red Eye Rect (2 days ago)

@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 (2 days ago)

okay done for the day but this thing is working pretty nice I think (I have a hover jump kinda thing going on) (2 days ago)

Well there's still some wonkiness to resolve in cases like this and sometimes slopes still cause stack overflows. >:( (2 days ago)

@tylerglaiel (2 days ago)

Indiana Stone: The Brave and the Boulder


Right before GDC my friend Tim Winsky released his first iOS game into the market, Indiana Stone: The Brave and the Boulder. He needed a quick and simple promotional site for the game, so I stepped up to the job.

The game itself is pretty rad too, and you should totally check it out, and then buy it and then tell all your friends to buy it. Viral marketing.

My Anti-SOPA, Anti-PIPA Ramblings

My Anti-SOPA, Anti-PIPA Ramblings

Today is the day of the great internet eclipse with sites like Reddit and Wikipedia going completely dark from 8 to 24 hours in order to raise awareness about two horrible, terrible things that are moving through the House and the Senate here in the United States: SOPA and PIPA. I just want to make a quick post as to why I'm personally opposed to the two acts, specifically SOPA for right now.

SOPA and PIPA's goals are to ultimately stop piracy, and they are mostly crafted through lobbying by companies like the MPAA, RIAA, and the ESA. Do you think your average representative has enough knowledge of the internet and computers to draft something like this themselves? Of course not. To them, the internet is a big truck, or whatever the MPAA tells them it is that month.

The MPAA steps into congress and convinces them that they are in danger of being completely destroyed because of internet piracy. They claim to be losing jobs by the hundreds of thousands, and their profits are dropping, and it's all because of people downloading camera rips of Jack and Jill. (Just kidding, I don't think anyone pirated Jack and Jill.) Oh, and the MPAA's claims are mostly bullshit.

The result is congress drafting horrendous bills that are absolutely overkill, and that miss the point completely. Imagine the problem of piracy being a fly on your friend's face, and congress's response is to launch a nuclear warhead at the fly, thus annihilating your friend, you, and everything within a 50 mile radius.

SOPA, and PIPA, will not stop piracy.

But what they will do is harm people like me. I'm trying to make a living on the internet, like a lot of other people these days. Every day we see new and exciting ideas and starts up emerge right here on the internet because of its absolute freedom and fairness. Anyone can just buy a domain name, rent a server, and launch a website on their own, but SOPA and PIPA threaten this freedom.

For a cooler, more visual representation of the problem, I suggest watching this video. read more

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.
