Otter Updates!

Otter Updates!

I've pushed a handful of updates to the dev branch of Otter over the past week. The commits and source and all that good stuff is always available on BitBucket.

* Fixed a minor bug in the Coroutines. (If you opted to use multiple coroutine managers for whatever reason it would break the game's main coroutine manager. This should no longer be the case now.)

* Changed Direction to a bitfield. (Thanks to Fruckert!)

* Added a Prerender() function to Entities. (I realized I needed to draw some graphics before an Entity has rendered its own graphics, and the way I set it up in Otter made it harder to do this than compared to FlashPunk. Now you can render things before the Entity renders by overriding Prerender() and putting your Draw functions there.)

* Added tagging to the debug logs. (You can now log things to the console with a tag, and add or remove tags that you want to see in the console.)

That's all for now. I might be adding a PathFinder component to Otter soon, but we'll see if it makes sense to do so.

Dan Adelman Web Stuff

Dan Adelman Web Stuff

News is spreading fast that the famous Dan Adelman has left his job at Nintendo to pursue helping indie game development teams with business development and marketing. How awesome is that! What's even more awesome is that I got to make Dan's new website for him. Check it out!

Image

The site is actually created as a custom Tumblr theme which ended up being pretty straight forward to set up. I find it way easier to work with than WordPress, although you don't have as much freedom to host it yourself. Working with Tumblr definitely has its kinks though. The work flow can get pretty weird towards the end of the development... I ended up having to copy and paste the entire template for the site over and over again to update things which is pretty strange, but hey it works!

This is also the first site I've done with any sort of real responsive design. Check out how the site changes when the screen width changes.

Image

It can be squeezed down pretty far in case you're viewing it on a Game Boy.

I had a lot of fun making this site! Haven't really taken on any web development work in awhile, so I had to shake a lot of the rust off, and I got to learn a lot of new things along the way.

Assassin Prince 360 Controller Mod

Assassin Prince 360 Controller Mod

I play a lot of TowerFall. So much TowerFall that I broke a 360 Elite controller within one month of purchasing it. I bought the "elite" controller because it was supposed to have that awesome d-pad that can transform and all that good stuff. Well it turns out that using the d-pad excessively results in the shell of the d-pad just cracking and breaking off.

Image

At this point the controller is already broken, so I figured trying to mod it would be the best bet. I grabbed a new d-pad off of ebay, as well as a set of pink controller parts. The d-pad came with the screw driver needed to take apart the controller. After looking at a quick video on how to take apart the controller, here's the result!

Image

Now I am totally ready to take on all opponents in style.

Offspring Fling Summer Sale

Offspring Fling Summer Sale

It's that time again! Offspring Fling is now available for 50% off on Steam for the duration of the Steam Summer Sale. It's hard to believe this game came out two years ago now. It feels like only yesterday I was working 14 hour days to get the game and the level sharing website ready for the Steam launch.

At some point soon I do want to have a proper postmortem post with all kinds of stats but I first need to make sure I'm able to post those stats without getting in trouble.

Offspring Fling Humble Store Sale

Offspring Fling Humble Store Sale

Just a quick heads up that Offspring Fling is available DRM free for 50% off over at the Humble Store! I'm not sure how long the discount lasts, but if you're still aching for a copy of the game then now's your chance to save a few bucks.

It's hard to believe it's been over two years since the game came out. It seems like only yesterday I was crunching 18 hours a day to get it ready for a release on Steam... those were fun times. The morning it actually launched I hadn't slept for 30-something hours, so that was pretty intense. Hopefully I can avoid that situation with future game launches.

TowerFall Tournament Finals



Check out me playing TowerFall at the Humble Bundle 2014 World Invitational Tournament vs. my good friend and training buddy Will Courtney. It was a best of 5 set and each of us had to play through amazing opponents to get to the finals. Good times!
