I said in my previous post that I’d show off some more levels from my Tomb Jump game demo. So here’s a video of the game’s hardest difficult setting. While I was more than happy with my earlier level designs I thought it would be cool to try and recreate the sense of action and […]

There has been a lot of talk about Web Assembly, the new binary format for the web. But what exactly is it? The presentation below by Google’s Nick Bray is definitely a good place to start.

My five year-old nephew wants to be a ‘game inventor’ when he grows up. He’s got all sorts of mad ideas for games he’s gonna make including one where Sonic the Hedgehog teams up with the robots from Pacific Rim to kick Doctor Eggman’s ass. Sounds awesome!

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens just over a week away, I thought I’d get everyone in the mood by posting a video of my X-wing Targeting Computer app that I threw together a while back. Fingers crossed JJ Abrams delivers the film I’ve been hoping for, and I can’t wait to see some X-wing […]
