I had Sunday afternoon to myself, so I thought I’d port my HTML5 Flappy Bird clone to Adobe AIR and see how quickly I could get it up and running on mobile. It didn’t take that long at all and I was pretty pleased with the end result. Porting the JavaScript to ActionScript 3 only […]

If you’ve been following my blog recently you may have seen my WebGL experiments that featured some cute game characters that had been created by my buddy Alex. Well those characters were from a game he was working on called Corgi Warlock, and the good news is that it’s now available to purchase on Steam! […]

So the big news today is that Adobe are renaming Flash Professional. From early next year it’ll be known as Adobe Animate CC. This will more accurately reflect Flash’s position as an animation tool for the web and beyond. It’s also obviously an attempt to get around the negativity that is constantly attached to any […]

I thought I’d finish up my recent round of WebGL experiments with the cast of goodies from Corgi Warlock. Don’t they look great! Oh and a huge congratulations to my buddy Alex for getting his Corgi Warlock game green-lit on Steam. Alex has been feverishly working away on it over the last year or so. […]

Today’s WebGL experiment is actually a character from WeeWorld. Say hello to Jeff the Unicorn everyone. Jeff hates being a unicorn by the way. Whatever you do, don’t call him cute. For this experiment I chained together a series of separate Jeff animations. One of him puking, another of him farting, and finally one of […]

This time we’ve got a fishy foot soldier. I thought I’d drop in one of Alex’s death animations along with a walk cycle. It works quite well don’t you think. I’ve just realised that Alex’s original animations are all set to run at 8 frames-per-second whereas I seem to have accidentally cranked everything up to […]

I had some fun last week mucking around with Flash Professional’s WebGL publish features. My buddy Alex very kindly sent over some character animations from his Corgi Warlock game so I set about converting them for WebGL. All of Alex’s original artwork and animation was actually produced using Flash so getting them working with Flash’s […]

As you can probably guess from my most recent posts, I’m pretty excited by Flash Professional’s HTML5/WebGL support. It opens a huge number of possibilities for those wishing to target mobile browsers and, in many ways, makes your Flash content a first-class citizen within a web page. One thing that’s lacking at the moment however, […]
