Goodbye 2012

Well that’s another year over and it’s been a hugely satisfying one. I’ve also just realised that I’ve kept this blog going for just over three years now, which I’m actually pretty damn proud of. You may have noticed that I haven’t blogged as frequently this year. That’s intentional as I wanted to focus more […]

Some Great Flash Announcements

The last few weeks have seen a series of great announcements for the Flash platform and I thought I’d take some time to cover some of my favourites. Stage3D and Unreal Engine The most recent, was the availability of Epic Citadel, which demonstrated the Unreal Engine running within the desktop Flash Player. Using Stage3D to […]

Fun with Unreal Engine

With all the excitement over Unreal Engine 3’s upcoming support for Flash Player 11, I thought I’d spend some time looking at the Unreal Development Kit (UDK). After all, it would be pretty sweet to be able to bash out an Unreal-powered game that could be delivered via the browser. Given its depth, UDK is […]
