  1. The Hypothetical Adventure Game

    It looks like you have some pretty cool/solid ideas. Totally pick up game maker or AGS or something and try to make it a thing, even if you just use those same doodles you have here as the actual backgrounds in the game.
  2. Indie Marketing

    So I actually haven't watched Alex's presentation yet (even though I was there on the day and hung out with him that evening and basically I'm a bad friend) but I would say:The time for chatting it up and putting it in front of people is All The Time. Like even before it exists. That is a thing Alex did with Antichamber, you probably knew what it was and were interested in it a year before it came out, and my game InFlux totally didn't have that going for it at all, and that is a thing I regret - even though I've very consciously always thought "transparency is the best, secrecy is dumb" etc, I still fell into the trap of "it's not near enough to done yet to be ready to show!" It's always ready to show. Right now I'm making some kind of adventure/story game thing that I'm not even sure what it is yet and I'm up on these forums and Twitter and everything sharing screenshots of stuff that very probably won't end up in the game, and it's still early enough for the game to not happen at all. And that, I think, is the correct if occasionally nerve-wracking way to do things. hopefully this makes sense, I'm drunk
  3. Video Games: The Making Of

    The Valve coffee table book "Raising the Bar" about the development of mostly HL2 but also HL1/Quiver/Prospero/TFC/CS/etc is maybe the most amazing excellent one of these, but it is hard to find these days.
  4. Games development discussion forum?

    This is rad. So if anyone wants/needs to know anything about Source/Unreal or video game makery in general, I am totally happy to dump information/thoughts up on here, just ask

  10. Plug your shit

    So I got my first tattoo today! it is the symbol of the ball from InFlux which is from the Impromptu logo. My mate Cynthia did it which is the best, because I feel like it is super rad to have this stuff done by someone you know properly, and afterwards we went out for drinks and had an awesome time. I have in fact had a pretty crazy good couple days just saiyan. When I was in Seattle for Dev Days, Mr Gaynor wrote "FUCK GAMES" on my arm and now I also kind of want to get that inked
  11. Plug your shit

    I'm betting it could be done in a shader pretty easily. I'm gonna look into it.
  12. Plug your shit

    thanks ya'll
  13. Plug your shit

    I guess I stretched it out more, does this look any better to you
  14. Plug your shit

    I think the issue is just that you lose the pixelated effect on anything far away for obvious reasons. Not really sure how to deal with that
  15. Plug your shit

    one of the things i did tonight was mess around with ultra low res foliage. it's actually the same grass from influx but way downrezzed this level has also been completely remade on account of moving to unreal engine 4 but hopefully it looks pretty much the same
  16. - A Subtle Journey of Discovery

    also you've got a quote on InFlux's store page
  17. Life

    Wow, what a weird thing to say. I'm not sure I grok. Are you saying that because 50 years ago there wasn't as much awareness/empathy as there is now, in another 50 years there's going to be just as much of a jump, and you're necessarily going to be an old bigoted asshole, so why even try not to be an asshole now? Am I just not following? or i mean why would those things be guaranteed
  18. Photos of things

    that's an awesome snowy photo. I just saw snow for the first time yesterday. oh and here's a photo I took of the final moments of Mike Bithell
  19. Photos of things

    I would totes play a zombie game set in the north of England. Yup Zeus, that Phoenix. I stopped over there on my way to Chicago (where I am now) after Dev Days in Seattle (which was awesome).
  20. Photos of things

    Managed to get a pretty sweet photo of the sunset over Phoenix out of the plane window last night
