Day 2 was kid making fonts & textures, while I was trying to figure out how to use this "Unity" thing :)
Day 1 of surprise secret project: mostly storyboarding and references.
Looks like an influx of new people on this Mastodon instance lately! (I guess birdsite keeps on messing up their platform)
Welcome y'all! Do post gamedev stuff of all sorts, do discuss, and be nice to each other. This is all. :toot:
Ok, "Boyfriend Dungeon: Date Your Weapons!" looks pretty cool. Backed! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kitfoxgames/boyfriend-dungeon-date-your-weapons
I'd like to make leaving Twitter more convenient for anyone inclined to jump, and I've noticed one of the things that keeps me there is it's where a bunch of media outlets post and they don't run accounts here.
So I'm starting up a GamesIndustry.biz account that will toot out stories for people who want to keep up with industry news:
Random list of demoscene PC demos over 1993-2018: http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/08/03/Random-list-of-Demoscene-Demos/
RenderDoc v1.1 is now out! This release focusses on improved API and OS support, as well as a boatload of bug fixes.

Matt Pharr has an excellent blog series on making pbrt better at rendering it. http://pharr.org/matt/blog/2018/07/16/moana-island-pbrt-all.html
Some thoughts on how can one start learning graphics programming https://interplayoflight.wordpress.com/2018/07/08/how-to-start-learn-graphics-programming/
Retrospective of a year writing C code again (for those not also on twitter): http://floooh.github.io/2018/06/02/one-year-of-c.html
Me: Why is the rain pink in this area?
N: I just assumed it was a shader error.
Pathtracer part 14: I made it run on iOS, both CPU & GPU parts. Some info on Xcode GPU performance tools, and a tiny bit of NEON code. http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/05/30/Pathtracer-14-iOS/
(definitely not daily :)) Pathtracer part 13: nice GPU thread group data optimization suggested by @gfxbean, and a quick realization that Metal IR is just LLVM IR. http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/05/28/Pathtracer-13-GPU-threadgroup-memory-is-useful/
Ugh, so this Mastodon instance seems to be getting ~30 "fake" new users every day, and some of those end up posting spam. Are they trying to do a DoS attack on me, or what.
Really wish for some less-clicks user suspension / spam clearing tools in Mastodon right now :|
Woke up this morning to ~50 spam moderation reports on this Mastodon. Some influx of spam bots. Thx for reports everyone!
The first Unity 2018.2 linux beta build is live! Featuring high dpi support!
Daily Pathtracer part 12: buffer-oriented approach on the GPU. I produced some accidental garbage renderings, and learned some nsights. http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/04/25/Daily-Pathtracer-12-GPU-Buffer-Oriented-D3D11/
Daily Pathtracer part 11: let's try a "buffer oriented" approach (is that what "wavefront" or "stream" tracing is? I don't know!) http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/04/19/Daily-Pathtracer-11-Buffer-Oriented/
Next up: maybe try the same on a GPU
