  1. I'm just gonna create a thread here in Game Dev, because this isn't just a jam game anymore. I'm still figuring out how large to scope the game and such, but I definitely want to try and make something out of this Mr. Puffin. I'll update this first post later, but just wanted to get this started. Here's some Explosions!
  2. [DevLog] Mr. Puffin in The Dark Castle

    I've been doing some work over the last couple of weeks on this. I've started refactoring the levels to use an awesome plugin called Realtime CSG. It basically makes level-editing in Unity function a bit like the old Unreal level editor, with brush subtractions, making adding more rooms and archways a breeze! Also, I've started doing hand-painted normal maps, which is a lot of fun. And some more environment props.
  3. Jeff Goldblum

    A couple of solid photos of Jeff Goldblum selling hot dogs. Chef Goldblum's Jazzy Snags is probably the best name for a food car ever.
  4. Idle Thumbs: A Patreon

    Oh man, these postcards sound so exciting, so I just upgraded my pledge! Hope I won't be hopelessly lost.
  5. Full Throttle Remastered

    Yeah, the remastered audio/music is really good. And listening to the commentary is so much fun.
  6. Full Throttle Remastered

    Just played it for a bit yesterday. I find it mixed in quality, but mostly they did a great job. The cutscenes and closeups look great! That intro was almost perfect, felt like what the original game looked like in my head. There's the odd character drawings that just look a bit rubbish, with weird hands and faces. Widescreen-ing the backgrounds creates a slightly more empty composition in some of the scenes, like outside Marley's shack. The biggest bummer is that they went through the trouble of re-rendering all the 3d models but lit them so flatly with almost no black shadows. It's super pronounced when the security drone chopper flies in. The render looks like a daytime render, the underside of the drone chopper is brightly lit when in the original it was all in harsh black shadows like the rest of the world. For all the flak the 3d models caught in the original for looking very CGI compared to the rest, the lighting they did on them back then was much better than in the remaster.
  7. Twin Peaks Discussion

    Oh Mington
  8. Plug your shit

    Here's some shit I'm working on! It's a personal project. A little animation of four memorable computers from my childhood. BBC Micro, IBM XT, Mac Plus and Macintosh Performa 5200. I've finished the rig for the screens and am now gonna work on animating between the different keyboards. Wish me luck!
  9. The Flash keeps doing this again and again as an attempt at drama and it drags the show down..
  10. I watched the shows out of order, as in I watched a lot of Flash and Legends of Tomorrow before watching Arrow. So I spent a lot of time watching Arrow waiting for the other shoe to drop with regards to certain characters. But it was kind of fun, in a way, having gotten to know some of these characters without any backstory and then later watching their origin story. And yes, those flashbacks are the worst and somehow they are still doing it five seasons in..
  11. Good thread! I randomly started watching DC's Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash and fell into the Arrowverse hole eventually and now I can't stop. It's cheesy and fun in a way I wish the Netflix Marvel shows were sometimes. ABC's Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter were the Marvel shows I liked the most because they were fun like the CW shows are. So yeah, I've grown to like Arrow and am slowly starting up on Supergirl now. The Flash has lost some of its fun lately, I feel. Whenever that show gets *really* hung up on mistrust between the main characters it gets really dour.. I do really wish the seasons were shorter, because with 24 episodes the shows meander a lot. Shorter seasons without some of the clunkier episodes would make me recommend these shows more often. Last note: If Arrow doesn't stop doing the flashbacks after this latest season I am done with it. I can't stand those flashbacks..
  12. Holy shit, this was great.
  13. Justice League film

    I wish they would stop letting Zack Snyder direct all of this and admit they made a mistake ever hiring him!
  14. Oh wow. Guardian meets Stone Talus!
  15. This was the most disappointing moment on your stream....
  17. I got my Wii U copy! But I have to work!
  18. I saw a gif of an enemy kicking a bomb back onto Link. So there's that as well!
  19. Idle Thumbs Streams

    Breath of the Wild stream was fantastic! So excited to get the game tomorrow. Link Breckon runs straight for the endgame castle and gets wrecked:
  20. I can't really afford the whole shebang of both Switch and Zelda, so I think I'll settle for just getting the Wii U version. From comparison videos of the final versions it doesn't really look all that different (though I assume the resolution on the TV is different)
  21. [DevLog] Mr. Puffin in The Dark Castle

    I think Wind Waker reuses one or two cloud particles for a whole bunch of effects, just with different color variations. I know Super Mario 3D World uses these kinds of mesh particles and I imagine it reuses it for many different effects. I think it's a common technique for most games.
  22. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is fantastic! Originally saw @Argobot mention it on twitter, so yeah thanks so much for the recommendation, because I absolutely adore the show now. Also, I found a Matlock remix on youtube and the next recommended video was the latest IIT episode!
  23. Night in the Woods

    No, I meant listening in character, as in Mae eavesdropping. It's all text all the time. There is endless amount of dialogue reading in this.
  24. Night in the Woods

    I only played through the intro last night and strolled through town for just a bit, listening to townfolk chatting, and it is indeed adorable and beautiful so far.
