This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.
It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.
It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.
My video game The Cursed One: Part 1 is now available on itch.io!
It is free to play, but if you feel generous you can donate a coin or two.
It's an old school rpg adventure where you have to explore, talk to people, learn magic and solve puzzles.
I'm so excited to share this with yall!

Random reminder that Game Programming Patterns is a fantastic (and free!) resource for anyone interested in game programming~
It's mainly relevant for those who want to write engines, but there's stuff in there useful to people using premade engines. Plus it never hurts to understand how your chosen game engine probably works!
80% of everything in my game engine that *isn't* an awful mess was probably based on what I learned from this book.
Woo, this is pretty cool
I made a new game with #Godot. It's a 2D action platformer with some twists and dark #Lore. You can play it for free here:

Hey all, I wrote another blog post! This one's about programming a simple OpenGL rendering exercise with Haskell: https://blog.emisocks.com/archives/2020/10/12/opengl_and_imperative_haskell/index.html
