Featured GDNet+ Posted Image Journal Entry

et1337 makes games Posted Image - et1337 has an extensive post covering several topics - most interesting is his use of the Facebook Graph API in conjunction with the Panda3D engine to create a navigable 3D interface that lets you explore all sorts of connections within your Facebook profile. He also has an update to his personal project Lemma, talking about the new C# scripting and how that ties into an animation system he added similar to the Universal Tween Engine. He then talks about a GPU Gems article he used to help tweak the game's colors. Both the Facebook graph and scripted animation system have source links as well.
