Today’s new comic strop - Plok sees something he wasn’t meant to see.

Audio

Another attempt at the jungle pogo game’s soundtrack. But it doesn’t fit well, and isn’t that good, so I’ll just use stock music instead.

This was not intended to be part of Plok’s soundtrack. It was for another game.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

New Plok comic strip today. Could this be a candy crush saga?

Midget Gems (or Midgetgems) are chewy, firm sweets similar to wine gums but much harder. They are manufactured from glucose syrup, sugar, and animal gelatin, mixed with colourings and flavouring. Midget Gems were extremely popular in the North of England and were one of The Lion Confectionery Company’s biggest selling brands. In 1995 the company joined forces with Cadbury Trebor Bassett brand Maynard’s to market the sweet across the country.[1]

I had to look them up because that kind of candy is called a jujube in the U.S. We have Hostess Fruit Pies, though.

everythingfallout said: Hey I love your blog and I was wondering I want to start to get into game development myself. It's been a dream if mine for as long as I can remember. But I have no idea where to start. Do you think that you could help me or tell me where to go or what to do.

You will first want to find a game engine to use. The two with the easiest learning curves are Game Maker (for 2D games) and Unity 3D (for 2D and 3D games). Both have free versions with enough features to make a serious game in, and both have a lot of documentation and a large community, which makes them a lot easier to troubleshoot. However, unlike Unity, Game Maker does not require programming knowledge.

Unity 3D is what I personally use, and it comes with a demo game so you can get a feel for the GUI before you start making your own game. You will need a little bit of knowledge of either JavaScript or C#.

http://unity3d.com/unity/download Where to get it.

http://www.unity3dstudent.com/category/modules/essential-skills/ This is the best tutorial series I’ve found for Unity.

http://forum.unity3d.com/

http://answers.unity3d.com/ These two sites are invaluable. If you are running into a problem, the Unity 3D community can help.


Game Maker is not something I know that much about. I haven’t used it since I was 12 (and this isn’t an insult towards GM: Risk of Rain and Hotline Miami were made in it). You may want to ask someone like joetheyarharpirate. 

I can link you these, though:

The pixel art isn’t working out, so I’m redoing the textures one at a time.

It’s happening. The Kickstarter campaign of Cube and Me is happening mostly likely tomorrow unless something else comes up.

I’m so nervous about this I can’t even breathe right at the moment. I’ve been a dev on and off for the past 8 years or so and I never expected I will make a game as…
