I've been working on this deep underground room for @eyeofthetemple@twitter.com and I'm pretty happy with how the atmosphere turned out.

A lot of the shapes in the achievement graphics are directly made from 3d models used in the game. This is how it looks in Unity.

Then I took it in its own direction based on the look of the in-game worn paper menu in Eye of the Temple.

This is a through-provoking take on Untitled Goose Game. (I'm personally not much for the trend calling the tiniest of non-physical things for violence, but the idea comes through regardless.)

Tiring: X is Y, not Z (arguing semantics).
Inspiring: Let's examine the interplay between Y and Z of X. In which ways are they intertwined and in which ways are they not?

Side note: That I can see a triumphant slight smirk in the few pixels of that face is super impressive!

@eyeofthetemple@twitter.com Here it is with much higher exposure which is closer to what it feels like in VR.

Managed to capture this rather dark and moody shot of a new area in @eyeofthetemple@twitter.com. You might have to view it fullscreen to see it properly, but in VR that's not an issue.

So extruded shapes in blender gets UV-mapped in a completely non-uniform way, and I had to write a Unity import PostProcessor in order to fix them up.
Image shows result: Uniform UVs despite highly varying segment lengths.

I made the shrine smaller (it felt too large in VR) and modeled it in Blender. I like it overall, but it sure is dark inside it.

Moore curve: I can be drawn with epicycles!

All other curves: Uh, so can we?

RT @Rainmaker1973@twitter.com

A Moore curve is a continuous fractal space-filling curve which is a variant of the Hilbert curve. Precisely, it is the loop version of the Hilbert curve and it can also be drawn with epicycles bit.ly/2v8L9qI | bit.ly/2w9QxOI [source: bit.ly/2otNPOZ]

Very interesting visual. I was wondering what it was, but concluded it's content aware scaling. It turns out there's a lot of memes of this (for good reason). I'm not sure how it's applied to video; if it the result is fed to itself iteratively, or the setting just turned up.

There's also an interesting choice of words here which defines success/failure purely in economic terms, removed from any measure of how many people end up buying and enjoying the game. It's not an invalid definition, but again reinforces the self-centered view of the post.
