Hey, for devlog which is better?
Make a company name and post the progress from the game on the company blog, then when the game is released, make a page for the game
or
Make a devblog for the game progress and when is finished post on the company blog?

Doing this:

Though I'm looking at the library that defines KeyboardMouseCallback and it doesn't seem like you have much choice in the matter. Poorly designed library, IMO.

>>121414392
That's your art? [blog?]
>>
>>121415448
Yeah, I would write your actual code to use pure functions as much as you can. Then at the top level where you actually have to interface with the library, use it to modify your IORef.

Personally, I got good at Haskell through exploring the implementation of programming languages. I'd say keep at it, and keep trying out your own stuff as much as possible instead of just copying the tutorial code.

Not really

One Anon here is working on a metroidvania game. He was posting progress-webms quite regularly until someone posted >>121413984, which looks like his game, just better and almost finish. Considering when the first trailer was released and the state of the game it's very unlikely that the SlainDevs stole the idea and I don't think ClerentDev was even aware of that game. It's just a really shitty coincidence.

Hey dude, if you're still around, thanks for the feedback. I was thinking the same thing about disabling the collision with the yellow blocks, so good to have some confirmation there. I'll work on the restart times and collision hitboxes too.

>>
>>121418226

Not him, but I would love it if the stage walls were slidy, that would make the gameplay way better if you ask me. Also level 5 should be moved later 1 or 2 levels.
Also, make the restart screen skipable ffs!
>>
>>121418461
I'm just venting, really. Stuff like this happens to me all the time. Butt fuck, it annoys me when it happens,

At least I get relieved that I figure out what's going on, nothing I hate more than my own lack of understanding.
>>
>>121418607
Alright, I could see how slidy walls would make it more fun, I'll put that in. Level 5 was put in there to introduce the red obstacles, but maybe it's too brutal of an introduction? I can push it back and put an easier one first.
I think I'm going to keep the death screen as it is, but allow the player to press R to instantly restart the level. Would that work?
>>
>>121413105
Hehhhhh for a while I thought it was a real person. Fresh out of college Chinese girls (in China) have that EXACT retarded look and atmosphere about them.
>>
>>121418881
By moving level 5 later I meant that 6 and 7 are notably easier. If you make the walls slidy then it will no longer be that hard. The thing is that it's hard to manuver in such a tight space without touching the ceiling losing momentum and falling to your death.

>I think I'm going to keep the death screen as it is, but allow the player to press R to instantly restart the level.

As long as you press R during the death screen you are golden.
>>
is it better idea to have one pixel shader with a conditional to pick between two different effects or two shaders
>>
>>121419778
Oh ok, I get what you're saying now. That makes sense. I went ahead and changed the friction on all the walls so something much lower, so I'll playtest it and see how it goes.
>As long as you press R during the death screen you are golden.
Yeah, press R literally anytime to restart. Glad I have people to remind me of things like this.

>What are the qualifications a game should have to be submitted for demo day?
None, just attach a .txt with instructions of buttons and what can be done if it is too cryptic and you don't feel like writing it in game.

aka. "There's 3 islands that you can visit right now, use boat with E"

So you don't get people looking around the first screen, going "Is that it? Looks like it." and closing the game.

I really don't think there's a fixing that. You'll have to use different materials or finnagle with worldspace (super not recommended) or multiple sets of UVs

>>121422754
You mean your own real name?
No, unless you have really thick skin. Real name blogs are for profesional use only (aka, portfolios). You can repost whatever you are proud of there.

I recomend a tumblr blog for your game, and if you feel posting random progress is your thing, a personal blog (Nick name only) which you link to.

Yes. Please don't take it lightly, I know you might shrug it off now, but I've seen grown fucking men break.

Is this your first day on the Internet?
>>
>>121424984
Look, it doesn't matter, just make the game blog and move on from there. My advice is just that, use nicknames on the internet for as long as you can.

If you feel there won't be a problem, go right ahead, I'm not saying you'll die or anything.

>>121424748
> What kinds of psychotic bullying can the Internet dish out that would make me break?
Have you not seen grown men break to trolls?

>>121425509
It's not about the trolls (mostly, you can just have shit luck and step on an internet nerve and get feminist, anti feminist, swj, anti swj, gamergate, antigamergate, etc, anti etc on your ass), but about the person being susceptibile to geting overwhelmed by the crowd when shit goes south, be it by anger, frustration, stuborness, low self esteem, inexperience with the internet,whatever.

Most of them don't think it will happen to them until it does.

If that is you, then you'll have no problem. The people I'm talking about can't do that. Although "just disconnect from the Internet for a few days." is a treatment, not a cure. Especially not a realistic one if your work depends on the internet.

You might have control over your emotions but other do not, some people will feel deeply insulted by something you did or say and then they will make it their mission to fuck your shit up.

Just look at 4chan, we have people here who shit post 24/7 and even pay for vpn so they can keep shitposting after they get IP-range banned. They don't even see anything wrong in what they are doing and usually have some excuse why their actions are 100% justified and the mods are wrong.

I think in the first place, like I first said, a story like that would NEVER go big because of how sensitive faggots people are. People don't like witch hunts, and stupid comments on the Internet are the stupidest reason to witch hunt someone. If you act decently like a professional developer should NOW, people will have no reason to go back to hunt your old comments, and the ones who do will look like lunatics who are trying to stir shit up, and that will get shut down pretty fast because people are sensitive faggots who don't want to hurt the poor innocent dev.

I actually misread your post as "can I get in trouble" not "will I get in trouble" but they're basically the same thing since nothing can be stated with 100% certainty.

If you get audited you will get in trouble. That's not likely but it's conceivable. If the google play store works with unity and has some sort of system for both determining whether a game was made with unity and fits some sort of criteria that indicate that it was made using a cracked version of the software then you could get in trouble. That seems extremely unlikely to me but companies /do/ go to some absurd lengths these days so you can never be too careful.

I mean, most likely you published some shitty little thing nobody will ever give a fuck about and you won't get audited and you'll get away with being a thief, but there's always a chance.

Man, you're REALLY closed off from social media, aren't you? It's good to be innocent though, as long as you stay away from tumblr ignorance is bliss.

This only applies if your game is shitty, but if you make a really popular game and someone finds out you used to do some shit, it will certainly be problematic.

I don't know, I don't see how this could be a problem. Valve is not going to remove your game from their store because of comments you made years ago that were deleted. I don't see this situation escalating to the point where your sales are hurt in any significant way if your game is already popular. Especially if you act calm and composed and explain the situation properly as the drama goes big. People who accept your explanation, great. People who don't, well, sucks for them but there's nothing you can do if people wanna get mad at you.

I just really don't see how this could become anything more than just another day on the Internet.

It got back in though. The only time they actually removed a game for the author's comments on the Internet was when Paranautical Activity guy threatened to kill Gabe jokingly. If you're not doing stuff like that then they have no reason to do it. And deleted comments years ago that you already said you're sorry for in some way are definitely not comparable.

You don't need to get by the extremists, you need to show the reasonable people that you're reasonable and then the extremists will look like lunatics to the reasonable ones.

All you care about is not looking like a retard to most people, and what I wrote seems reasonable enough that most would go "yea I can understand that somewhat" and lay off the hate train.

>>121430468
So what? Loud people who don't convince a majority don't have any power. The only power they have is the power you give them by responding. If the drama gets big enough you respond once with what I said and then ignore it completely. They'll stop talking about it after a while. You already explained your side of the situation. There's no more to it. If they wanna continue being loud all you can do is keep ignoring them. Most people won't keep being loud the same way because at that point it's just pure bullying and witch hunts, and most people are above that.

4. Choose the one you think is best.

You can't kinda-do-it-right with a mouse on paint, you need to sketch it out.

Not really. If you're an OK drawer, you can make good to great pixel art. If you're a great drawer, you're just wasting your time with pixel art.

Pixel art's a good way to mask lack of drawing skill if you have an eye for color/good palettes. Seriously, pick the right colors and any low res pixelshit will look good. But if you've got no artistic talent whatsoever, it shows.

Loomis is just bad and in general drawing books kinda suck unless you're already capable of following their examples. The best way to ~GIT GUD~ is to just find some photos/anime/furshit you like and copy it, imo. Copy, copy, copy.

Why are you worried about the opinion of nodevs? Mobile game development is game development. Nodevs can find a million reasons to shit on your game whether it's a mobile game or not, so you may as well do what you want to do and disregard them.

Tons of people in the last thread were shitting all over some guy (and, later, me) who was talking about doing his first game for iOS. My main concern is that I really won't get any exposure and that despite being good my game will immediately fade into obscurity the moment it launches because of the torrent of shovelware and shitware on mobile platforms... but it seems like it's kinda similar with Steam, too. Having never released a game that wasn't a half-finished, unpolished turd, I'm extremely nervous and anxious about releasing the one I'm currently working on, which is like my fucking lifetime masterpiece by comparison.

I just don't want to be the gamedev equivalent of those guys who make pretty cool stuff and never really get recognition except in obscure forums and later magazines that talk about games that were good but never got anywhere

And so many of the shitters' complaints seem true. Who talks about mobile games via word-of-mouth? nobody. Who REALLY hunts down and spends a lot of time finding RPGs in the app store? nobody. Who looks beyond the first five or ten results? nobody.

Save yourself now before it's too late. Their words are poison and have corrupted their own minds to the point that shitposting on agdg is the height of their day and their biggest accomplishment.

Most of what you said is true, except this.

Normies will be wasting time in some game, and share it with their friends.

Research the best selling and top grossing games in app stores to see the kinds of games that make it big, then go lower and look up games that at least break even. If your game is good, you should have a chance of breaking even. It's not completely fucked as you think, just that your chances of being noticed are abysmal.

It's true, gamers have a lot of free time, and mobile gamers have as much free time and tend to be more social. Their age range is really wide too.

I agree, a person can make a good sum of money without reaching the top 10 list of anything. They can have success, but not everyone can be master of the universe.

Game design sense cannot be learned by watching youtubes, either, which is hard for some of the resident shitters here to accept. Be wary of their "advice" and "constructive criticism". It's usually a half-assed rewording of things they heard from their heroes like Errant Signal.

It seems you're arguing a completely different thing.

I was talking about the profile of the market. Someone buying a 3ds or vita is a completely different market from someone that plays games on a mobile phone.

My country's unemployment ratio is growing kinda fast since last year. The city where I study design just don't have jobs available (I tried malls, fast foods, telemarketing, you name it).

Also, I'm working with a few more designers and coders in a project that produces apps and games for either mobile or PC, but we only get paid if we publish stuff (we also have some imagine cup's first places there). So far some of them have already published, but I couldn't get anything, so I'm looking to make some game just to get some income (any amount is welcome, really). I'm having to sell cakes around my campus to keep living.

Also, the minimum wage here is around 200,00 USD (or 0.95 per hour).

Because most things I've applied for want you to use their special site to apply, and they only let you upload a resume and personalized 2 page cover letter, to which they won't even give me an acknowledgement of having read. Some require me to fill out diversity tests, too. Only one had a box to enter a github url.

Learn to network, nigger. Just giving HR departments your resume will result in wowit'sfuckingnothing every time.

This is advice to lawyers specifically, but everything in it is applicable in basically every industry.

I throw away resumes with too much skills enumerate because it reeks of desperation. normally when companies have opens you target only the skills that they require and not anything else. If they don't respond to you it's most likely that they are just not interested in what you had to offer.

How do people do pixel perfect 2d graphics on OpenGL? Everything is floats, so even if you use GL_NEAREST for textures, isn't there the chance that when OpenGL rasterizes your sprites they won't line up exactly?

If you've ever had a software interview before you'd understand that it can all become a complete clusterfuck. The one I had started quizzing me on obscure domain specific aspects of a language.

>>121443098
Nope, I'm pretty much dead in the water. I kept applying to a few jobs but really after the first few months I gave up hope and got depressed. No idea what to do with my life any more.

I mean I spent all my time at home learning and doing software shit but none of it ever worked out and it was never a business.

If I ever get a shot at an interview I'll probably just try to lie and say I was helping out with my family's business occasionally.

But yeah, I'm imagining my future will basically be
1 get kicked out soon (no idea why they still let me live at home)

If your excuse for not making it look better is 'old games looked shit too', then just stop doing dev.

they didn't look shit cuz they didn't care. They looked as good as they could for what was available. You on the otherhand have no reason to put arbitrary limits on the quality of your art and it reeks of laziness to give that shitty 'old games X/Y/Z' excuse.

they'd have flashing distortions because they had to use memory not allowed for animation. They used only 3's instead of 4's in animation because floppies didn't have enough room for another slide. They chopped sprites in half and only updated one half because it saved space they desperately needed.

You're just fucking lazy.

if you want to do skeletal animations or 2.5d, Unity.

gamemaker is 100% geared for 2D but uses GML which won't get much use in the "real world"

Unity uses c# which is good, but it is kind of tacked onto the 3D haphazard.

depends on if you want a viable rl language and if you want a good working environment.

SDL question.

Should I use a renderer for my playing field and a separate renderer for my ui? Does this reduce how many times I need to update per second? Or do I only use explicitly one renderer per window? What's the point of viewports?

Changing the viewport allows you to render to a section of the window or to textures of varying size
