      I am trying to move some of my C# code for a noise implementation onto a Unity HLSL compute shader.  Unfortunately some of the functions returns arrays.  I have looked at several resources in an attempt to find out how to do this but I still don't have a working solution.  I did find a similar question on here (see the bottom of this post).  In this case using `out' was suggested.  Is this the correct way to handle this?  If so what would the correct syntax be for a function which also has three parameters, such as:
      int[] CornerPoints(float x, float y, float z) In this case the returned array will be a multidimensional array.
      int[8,3] .Any pointers in the right direction would be much appreciated.

      Unfortunately, we couldn't make it over to GDC, but we did make a tiny appearance. We fitted out our marketing guy Erik from Indie Bros. with a SAMA T-Shirt! Did anyone spot him?

      Hello community !  For a new Business in Game Development, which platform is better to start with and why ? Mobile (Appstore, Google Play) or PC (Steam) ?   Also: Which strategy will have more chances to assure a ”sustainable” income and a company growth ?    
      A medium quality FPS game (good, almost realistic graphics, decent story but definitely not a AAA game), with no marketing budget, published on steam. (Team: 5 developers and 5 salary.) 5-6 Hyper Casual games with good quality graphics and mechanics (at least 2-3 of them with new and original mechanics), with a good marketing strategy ? (Team: 2 developers and 2 salary.)  
        Tough choice, I know  Thank you in advance for all your feedback

      Hello all,
      I am currently looking for talented individuals to aid in the development of a pirate-themed 2D Platformer
      A bit about the game:
      This will be a 2D platformer built in Unity for PC. It will be scripted in C#. As for other programs that will be used for art/animation, I am open to a discussion from the team. I have been using Photoshop and After Effects for the initial prototyping, but this is no way set in stone
      In terms of art style, we have quite a bit of concept art done already. Again, nothing permanent and if you are asked to join the team you will be able to voice your concerns should you wish to change something. That being said, we are currently looking at a brightly colored, cartoony styled game set primarily on the beach/docks or in caves.
      The design is looking at going one of two ways:
      Puzzle style: where each level is a challenge with enemies and difficult layouts that require thinking in order to reach the end Survival: Think Zombieville USA (the old mobile game https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvfVDczQXOY). Just try to reach the end of the level before dying. Each level there are more and more enemies. This would include a weapon upgrade system and infinite levels in which enemy spawns are algorithmically generated. One of these will be chosen in the following weeks as we approach the construction of a finalized prototype   Our team is currently in search of the following: Character Artists Background Artists Asset Artists Writers Animators Engineers/Programmers (C#) If you feel you can fit one or multiple of these roles please feel free to respond to this post or private message me.
      Right now, the main goal is to get a prototype up and running. Should this be accomplished, we can look at researching the possibility of starting a Kickstarter and marketing campaign. That being said, for the time being, this is a hobby-project and all work is unpaid. Just done out of the love for video games and the passion to make something cool  Should it move past that we will obviously discuss monetary benefits.
