Generate your own #ANE with custom #Android resources using this open source build script.

Your feedback is really important to us so if you have a moment please fill out this survey on the distriqt ANEs.
As part of the continuing improvement of our extensions and the support we provide, we have created a small customer feedback survey. It contains just a few simple questions about our extensions and how we can best support them in the future.

Hi there peeps, I'm looking for a new role as a C# Unity3D developer, ideally in Sydney but I'm used to working remotely too. If you've got any leads please shout out.

Here's a few CV like things …

Due to the NDA nature of the last Unity3D project I was working on I haven't got much to show from recent times. So I made a quick game recently so I could prove I actually could (only in the Android store at present) - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.terrypaton.cinder

I don't really sell myself as a designer, but I certainly draw to concept game ideas etc a lot and have drawn most of my life from late teens. A good example of this would be http://fluidgame.blogspot.com.au/ - scroll down a few posts to see what I mean. This site is for a personal game I'm designing.

My game dev sketchbooks: https://www.flickr.com/photos/terrypaton/collections/72157623562011731/

All my Flash games were designed by me (I've made over 100), although I gave up hosting them years ago a lot of them can still be found here: http://terrypaton1.newgrounds.com/games/
