The Adventures of Clark Doud - Demo Video - Should I dig this up?

Recently, someone approached me about my Dark Cloud fan project asking for information on its progress so I decided to make this video so that anyone who's interested can get up to speed.

Wacom vs N-Trig - A Modern Comparison

WARNING: This post is long. I wrote this because I could not find an unbiased comparison of the modern N-Trig and Wacom technologies online. It was written in response to the artistic outcry regarding the Surface Pro 3. If you are an artist, I believe it is worth reading.

UPDATED as of 20th June 2014 to reflect N-Trig software advancements.
UPDATED as of 23rd June 2014 to reflect new direct Digitizer comparison information.


Those of you who may visit this site regularly will know that I am a game developer, but what you might not know is that I also do a lot of sketching. (Maybe one day I will post the stuff online)

Since I am a geek, I do almost all of my sketching digitally, which means I am always looking out for new developments in digitizer technology. This brings me to this post in particular:

Following the announcement of the Surface Pro 3, many artists were shocked and disappointed by the news that the SP3 would be using N-Trig technology rather than Wacom technology like the SP…

Unity: How Adapters can help you write fewer MonoBehaviours

TL;DR: You don't need to duplicate a bunch of code to do the same things to a Image and a SpriteRenderer, or RectTransform and Transform, etc. You can use a simple pattern called the Adapter Pattern. If you've never used it before, this post explains how.

The Problem: Image vs SpriteRenderer Lets say you want to make a sprite fade out, maybe its a dead monster or a collectible, but in either case you want it to gracefully depart from the screen rather than blink out of existence. Kinda like this eyeball monster from Beastly:


So that's pretty easy right, one way of doing it is with a MonoBehaviour that modifies the sprites alpha value via SpriteRenderer.color. Your class might look something like this:
public class AlphaFaderSprite : MonoBehaviour { public SpriteRenderer spr; public float fade_percentage; void Update() { spr.color = new Color(spr.color.r, spr.color.g, spr.color.b, fade_percentage); } } Now, anyone who's used Unity for more than an …

Introducing Runes of Runeterra - A Love Letter to Riot Games

This was originally a reddit post:

But I've copied it here for safe keeping and future reference.
I've also included [this list] of games that I've played in the past 6 Months, since a link to this page was submitted as part of an application.
TL;DR: I made a game and i'd love for your guys to play test it and give me feedback. If you want to avoid reading the wall of text and get straight to checking it out, there is a section right at the bottom of this post called Without Further Ado that you can skip to. However, if you’re interested in the design/development process then I encourage you to read on! (Plus, you're probably going to want to read the rules section too) Hi Reddit! The deadline for Game Design internship applications to Riot is fast approaching, but i'm based in London and likely ineligible to work for Riot since they don't usually suppo…
