#indiesvspewdiepie weekend jam

So I haven’t done a game jam in a while (after I failed my #nar8). And I wasn’t really planning on doing #indiesvspewdiepie.

But first French Toast with eggs and bacon, sprinkles (because why wouldn’t … Continue reading #indiesvspewdiepie weekend jam

Thoughts while reading Cocos2d-X by Example Beginner’s Guide Chapters 1 & 2

Packt published a new book on Cocos2d-X, “Cocos2d-X by Example Beginner’s Guide” by Roger Engelbert (http://www.packtpub.com/cocos2d-x-by-example/book) First off, book cover is adorable.

If I can make some cookie cutter games at the end of … Continue reading Thoughts while reading Cocos2d-X by Example Beginner’s Guide Chapters 1 & 2

How to add Facebook to Unity Android?

I searched for this before, but couldn’t find a solution that was easy or cheap (by cheap, I mean free). Pavel Kultyshev (@getencapsulated) also wrote a blog post, sharing messages on Twitter or Facebook by following the link in the browser of a mobile device or by opening the client app on this device. I haven’t tried this approach though, because I’m looking for something … Continue reading How to add Facebook to Unity Android?

Creating Games with Cocos2d for iPhone 2

Packt Publishing recently released a new book called “Creating Games with Cocos2d for iPhone 2”, written by Paul Nygard. The name is a bit confusing to me, the 2 in the book title refers to the book being the second Cocos2d book from Packt or 2 as in Cocos2d version 2.0? Anyway, the book in detail from their website: Cocos2d for iPhone is a simple … Continue reading Creating Games with Cocos2d for iPhone 2

On App Reviews and Features

So I recently “wrote” an app (50K/30 available for sale now at the App Store (https://itunes.apple.com/tw/app/50k-30/id570422816?mt=8) for $1.99) and I spent maybe an entire day and night (read “dev” blog?) gathering and sorting through App Review sites. Now Maniac Dev has a pretty impressive list of App Review sites (http://maniacdev.com/2012/05/ios-app-review-sites/), but it has been months since that was updated. I used that as my base … Continue reading On App Reviews and Features

So far Chapter 1 has been very clear in teaching me how to install … Continue reading Quick Review: Unreal Development Kit Game Programming with UnrealScript Beginners Guide

In relation to my previous tutorial: Mini Tutorial: How to batch convert image files to PVR (for iPhone app development)?
