I Am Dolphin - Kinect Prototype

Posted by Promit, 09 October 2014 · 250 views

I'd hoped to write up a nice post for this, but unfortunately I haven't had much time lately. Releasing a game, it turns out, is not at all relaxing. Work doesn't end when you hit that submit button to Apple.

In the meantime, I happened to put together a video showing a prototype of the game, running off Kinect control. I thought you all might find it in...


Our New Game: I Am Dolphin

Posted by Promit, 07 October 2014 · 1,406 views

After an incredibly long time of quiet development, our new game, I Am Dolphin, will be available this Thursday, October 9th, on the Apple/iOS App Store. This post will be discussing the background and the game itself; I'm planning to post more technical information about the game and development in the future. This depends somewhat on people reading and...


Neuroscience Meets Games

Posted by Promit, 26 September 2011 · 854 views

It's been a long time since I've written anything, so I thought I'd drop off a quick update. I was in San Francisco last week for a very interesting and unusual conference: ESCoNS. It's the first meeting of the Entertainment Software and Cognitive Neurotherapy Society. Talk about a mouthful! The...

Understanding Subversion's Problems

Posted by Promit, 12 March 2011 · 658 views

I've used Subversion for a long time, even CVS before that. Recently there's a lot of momentum behind moving away from Subversion to a distributed system, like git or Mercurial. I myself wrote a series of posts on the subject, but I skipped over the reasons WHY you might want to switch away from Subversion. This post is motivated in part by...


I am at GDC

I arrive in SFO for GDC tonight, give me a shout if you'd like to meet!


Evaluation: Git

Posted by Promit, 17 October 2010 · 335 views

Late copy of a Ventspace post.

Last time I talked about Mercurial, and was generally disappointed with it. I also evaluated Git, another major distributed version control system (DVCS).

Short Review: Quirky, but a promising winner.

Git, like Mercurial, was spawned as a result of the Linux-BitKeeper feud. It was written initially by Linus Torvalds,...


Evaluation: Mercurial

Posted by Promit, 07 October 2010 · 332 views

Copy of a Ventspace post.

I've been a long time Subversion user, and I'm very comfortable with its quirks and limitations. It's an example of a centralized version control system (CVCS), which is very easy to understand. However, there's been a lot of talk lately about distributed version control systems (DVCS), of which there are two well known examples:...
