Yeah I was actually going to share the video, but was going to ask if you had a version without him. Instead I shared the steam page. Then I realised … I should buy this.

Cool story, dude quits his day job to exclusively make 3d models to sell on the Asset Store
 
What makes someone quit their Art Director position on AAA titles and become a full time Asset Store Publisher?

They say the best way to make money in a gold rush is by selling shovels, right?

8/10 from destructoid. Good but not great... fair points though, we really tried hard to get some minigames in, to change up the pacing, but just couldn't find time to get it done :(

Well even though he said it wasn't perfect he would still recommend it to others. So that should feel like a win.

Brutal, the new PPAPI Flash Plugin from Google just killed Flash Performance across the board. It's now no longer possible to move a Stage3D image across the stage without hiccups. More complex animations are rendered unusable.

And in typical google fashion... they appear to give exactly zero shits about it:

I started thinking this is some kind of weird Adobe way to shut it all down without getting all the shame.. :)
And I love dmichael@chromium- such a nice guy! :)

I re-arranged +Mike Gaboury's Box Art into a banner treatment. Turned out pretty good for a 'programmer' :p

I heard about https://theindiebox.com/ on reddit, they do physical boxed copies of indie games, apparently.

Man, really getting annoyed with GOG and their gate-keeper mentality when it comes to games. They weren't interested in Bardbarian, "Not PC enough" they said, now JJR is not good enough either "too many platformers these days"... ugh.
