The introverts guide to getting noticed. As artists and technologists, we're in our own world. We're a unique breed. We're creating, designing and dreaming. That's part of our DNA. It's what we do best. Interacting with other humans... not so much. For years I've been creating, but I haven't ...

Really cool tip on how to design your character collider to more than a dumb physics object.  Interesting how Juicy Beast is acknowledging ledges and stopping character colliders hard when players let go of controls, as opposed to letting the the collider slide when away from the edge.

Our 2nd year students will be conducting a "Pitch Presentation" on Thursday (2/26/2015) @ 4:00 pm. This presentation is part of our curriculum, is open to the public, and will involve feedback from industry professionals...So stop by our campus on the 4th level of the Seattle Center Armory building Friday afternoon, and check it out!

When : 2/26/2015
Where : Seattle Center Armory (formerly the Center House) @ 305 Harrison St, Suite 405, Seattle, WA 98109

This is open to the public.   Each pitch will be 10 minutes followed by Q&A.  I would love an audience for my class to review, and perhaps offer creative, technical or marketing advice regarding the viability of each of our team's proposed game.

Awesome audio resource:

Really high quality.  And it's interesting that you don't actually have to license/pay until your project ships.

Really cool.  I like Uframe, but are struggling with how to integrate existing assets.  

This walk through helps!  Also, subscribed!

Awesome Smash Bros analysis.
Common sense dictates that video games should be balanced. Of course they should be! Why wouldn't they? Well, it turns out there are actually some pretty cool things that can happen when a game isn't balanced. Disclaimer First, a disclaimer...

Mindblowing.  Relating computing ops to physical states.  Ultimate laptop is 1kg black hole...but lasts for less than 1 ms.  Universe has been computing at 10^123 speed since it was booted ->  Crytography > 10^123 requires more than one universe to break?  WTH...
