One month to make a game

That was the plan, and we nearly stuck to it. Extended out to 5 weeks in total, but partly because I couldn't devote much time during the first three weeks. So here it is, what was produced.

I think I'm going to come back to it next month and make the controls and AI better, as the game doesn't really feel done yet, but it's done enough that you can lose, just not easily. Highscore based for now, but +Tony Porteous has big plans for it later.

We're sticking it up on google for almost nothing, and I'm thinking that we're going to treat this like minecraft in that we'll keep updating it, and when we think it's worth more, we'll raise the price, so get it now and fund the continuing development.

I think Google generally puts up videos of their tech talks. At least I've seen some of them online.

I love how big a difference this makes. Are there any game developer related resources on how learn how to do this (for games/pictures/video)?

You might want to take a look at SweetFX, a mod which injects colour grading (and other post-processing effects) into many games.

Something I knocked up over the holidays. While I did spend quite a bit of it getting drunk, I also did a bit of coding.

Jeff Minter is being messed with. Regardless of which way the legal stuff comes out, I think that Atari can't really claim that they could suffer "losses" because of TxK, so I think we should support the llama master, and all buy a copy of one of his games. Hey, you might even like it.

Okay, so regardless of my earlier rant about the quality of Clara.io OBJ exporter, it turns out they are listening on twitter and they helped me figure out what was wrong with a scene, and have promised to roll out a new feature tomorrow based on my needs.
I have no idea what is going on in the world any more.
Also, my little pirate ship models seem to be popular, and one was featured on their front page. That's just daft. I mean, it's about 400 polygons or something. I don't even.
Oh well, take the fame and the positive fallout from it, while it's there.

Some of you may be aware that my wife, Catrin, has written a play about the life of Alan Turing called "To Kill a Machine". You may already have seen an earlier version of the play at Aberystwyth, Cardiff or Swansea.
Well, it's been redrafted and substantially revised, but we need your help to take it on tour - paying actors, designing sets and such. We've already got the tour bookings but we need £8000 to attract match funding from other sources. Please help!

Go to the site, read the comments. For one thing, this play is a damn sight more accurate than The Imitation Game. It's also a better piece of drama, by some way.
Scriptography Productions is raising funds for To Kill a Machine on Kickstarter! An empowering play about war time code breaker Alan Turing which tells the real story of a hero vilified for his sexuality and suicide.

Who's the most boned here? http://www.businessinsider.com/apple-help-for-users-who-cant-receive-texts-from-iphone-2014-5?IR=T#ixzz32CTwY0m6

Users are pretty boned, but doesn't this also mean the carriers are boned too? I mean, Apple are basically taking away any profit the carrier gets from texts., right? Afaik, texts have always been a good return on investment for a carrier, and if you're taking away their income, why are they supporting Apple?
"Their response was that I needed to contact every person I know and tell them to delete my contact information, and then re-enter it into their phone."

This is something me and +Cerys Robinson have been accidentally creating for a while. I figured I should probably try to collate it in one place.
(With apologies to Blur and George Romero)

Cremation is a preference to the raging hunger that is known as...
(UN-LIFE!)
A shambler horde can be avoided if you take a route straight through what is known as...
(UN-LIFE!)
John's got survivors guilt, he gets intimidated by the scraping fingers at the door - they love a bit of it!
(UN-LIFE!)
Who's that fat git fleeing? You wanna cut down on your porklife, mate, eat some braaaaaainnnnssss!
(UN-LIFE!)

All the zombies
So many zombies
And they all go shuffling round
Shuffling round through their
Un-lives!

Know what I mean?

I don't get up at all, except on some days when I get rudely awakened by a virus
(UN-LIFE!)
I tear my coffin open, eat a couple of brains, then think about forming a horde
(UN-LIFE!)
I eat the cortex, I sometimes eat the brain stem too, it gives me an enormous sense of well-being
(UN-LIFE!)
Then I'm hungry for the rest of the day, frantically searching for another screaming victim
(UN-LIFE!)

All the zombies
So many zombies
And they all go shuffling round
Shuffling round through their
Un-lives!

It's got nothing to do with your baseball bat technique, y'know
And it's not about yer gunners, who shoot rounds and rounds and rounds...

All the zombies
So many zombies
And they all go shuffling round
Shuffling round through their
Un-lives!

Story
Introduction
I was born in London, unable to fend for myself and didn't even know the language, but I managed okay with the help of some relatives. Moving to another country when I was 23 was a little less scary because they all spoke my language (apart from the sausage salesman). Many years and one wife later, I was ejected back to London to work as an officer in the Tar and Rocks corporation, until I opened a can of worms.

I write games.
