Bandit's Shark Showdown - Can Video Games Help Stroke Victims?

It's been a long time since I've posted, but with good reason. For the last couple months, I've been busy building our newest game: Bandit's Shark Showdown! Released as a launch title for Apple TV and now out on iOS, the game represents the latest generation of our animation/physics tech, and will power the next round of stroke rehabilitation therapies th...

I Am Dolphin - Kinect Prototype

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

Understanding Subversion's Problems

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

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,...
