weekend reading
Welcome back after another week! Here is your round-up of stories from 4/15 - 4/22

As a side note, I asked Mike about the lack of full screen capability in YouTube embeds and he directed me to the media BBCode editor. After a bit of fiddling around I got the tag code updated so that videos are now larger and can be played in full screen. Yay!

Project Updates

  • owl's Blog - owl's got a new video up showing off the progress he's made implementing his swept-ellipsoid collision detection hooked up to his ragdoll that can now run, jump and otherwise move about a little platform world he constructed for testing
  • Hexagon2D - KHearts has a narrated video detailing the latest improvements to his Hexagon Engine, and has also rediscovered that good old pencil and paper can still be an excellent design tool. Never forget!!
  • MysteryMeat's Journal - MysteryMeat has the next 11 days off from work. Normal people might book a trip to some tropical paradise with that much free time but game developers? Hells no! He's going to get a working prototype going of a game he's been incubating for some time. Hells yea! Oh and good luck :)

Game Dev Stuffs


  • owl's Blog - owl's found a YouTube playlist that shows off various interesting and obscure indie games that never quite made it into the spotlight. If you're an aspiring designer and have the free time, might be worth investigating some of them to learn why.
  • kseh's blog - kseh has another round up of Flash games his played and mini-reviewed, this time from Agame.com
  • AmzBee's Journal - AmzBee has a short tutorial on getting FMOD Ex to work under Linux with C# Mono. Personal note: FMOD rocks.

Other Stuffs

  • The Realm of Trial Posted Image - DecipherOne took advantage of his GDNet+ RSS import functionality to get some older entries into his journal hassle-free. Glad it worked out well for ya!
  • From Nothing to Everything - One Man Project has created a new portfolio site for himself
  • The Art of War Posted Image - Saruman has discovered the absurdly simple "why the hell didn't I think of that" solution to getting GDNet commenting and forum posting working on the iPad. Duh!!

Thanks for stopping by, BlueGlutton.




Great job taking the time of summarizing the entries. This is very smart and useful. Keep it up!
