SUDDEN GLORY Development – Particles and flashy bits

Here’s a small video of me working on some of the particle effects (and the game logic that spawns them), and some of the art assets (and the logic on how they behave).

For the particles, the idea is that when certain things get destroyed, they leave a crater behind (or some burnt wreckage). I also wanted a random chance to spawn other things, like fire, smoke, electrical arcs, and what-not. The script I created uses a “chance” variable for calculating the odds in which a special “additional” effect would spawn.

For the art, I have these big battle ships, and they have weak points for the other team to attack. However, I have no way to convey to the player that they needed to attack these points. So, I’m creating “ship components” that will flash to show they are “points of interest,” and since all you do is fly and shoot, you’ll naturally try shooting it, and it’ll explode. See? Conveyance.

More of these are likely to come. Stay tuned. I also use that channel to put up my Twitch streams, so… uhh… like and subscribe? I guess? Is that how the TubeYou works?



Video: Will Smith Shares His Secrets To Success.

This may be a potato-quality video, but it speaks volumes. Everything he speaks is what I’ve been working my entire life to accomplish. His motivation, his determination, his stride to be “unrealistic,” and his ability to keep loving life, and take its challenges. That’s what I’ve been telling myself for years, and to hear it from someone who had the passion to make it to the top, that just solidifies it more for me. And I hope it means something to you, too.

I do not, however, share his passion for treadmills. They are machines made to kill, and kill they certainly do.

Silence on the Line Video Playthrough by Markiplier

Holy crap! Someone made a video playthrough of my game! And I didn’t even plead with them or beg them or bribe them or anything!

Markiplier takes on the challenge of our quick little horror game Silence On The Line made during the Global Game Jam 2013. It’s hysterical.



So, this is just a search on YouTube. People play this game. People are afraid. People. Are. Afraid.

Geek Cinema 1 – October 24, 2010

Today I bring to you some of the geekiest videos I found during my time trolling the vast internet. Here are some good highlight videos:

1 – Rat Brain Robot

First is something that generally terrifies me. All I can say is we finally did it; cue mankinds’ downfall.


2 – What Different Sorting Algorithms Sound Like

Not even gonna lie – this is pretty amazing. The author of this is modifying the frequences of sine waves with the values in the list as it’s being sorted. Music to a nerds’ ear…


3 – Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris

If you can’t stop playing the Tetris theme song in your head, you’re gonna have a real problem not singing it. Epic.


Warning: Cruel Humor, Violence, Gore and Strong Language.

Funny to those with a sick sense of humor. The ending gets scarier than Paranormal Activity 2.

More to come… Eventually…
