Welcome new Journal Land author MrPhoenix!

Project Updates
  • DMD 'Ware - polyfrag updates with a video on new features working in Pathogen and also has a video gameplay demo for a mobile side project he's already pushed off to Apple for approval that involves solving math problems as fast as you can while being distracted by flashing background colors. I'd fail miserably

For contractors, this is important to know so you can negotiate a fair price for your work!
  • The Gameconomist - Yaniv Nizan reveals that the in-app purchasing model works best when the app also runs a virtual economy
  • Gamieon's Journal - Gamieon has a nice little post mortem on his latest mobile release Hamster Chase, which was a success next to his last project and he analyzes why that is
  • The Bag of Holding - ApochPiQ realizes his workaholic attitude is having a potentially detrimental effect on himself and his team and psychoanalyzes his condition
  • Just Let It Trickle - adeyblue goes over using compiler plugins to get Visual Studio to seamlessly compile C99 code
