No Man’s Sky: The game that never was

This is the first of a 2-part series I’ll write about No Man’s Sky. In the second part I’ll focus on what I think the game should have been like, here I'll talk about how deceitful I feel Hello Games, the developers of No Man's Sky, and especially their lead developer, Sean Murray, have been with the marketing of the game… read more

I am not dead

It’s been over 4 months since I’ve updated my website, but I haven't forgotten about it, I’ve just been really busy with other things.

I'm currently working to finish my Unity port of Daniel Linssen's GameMaker game, Reap, and I've just uploaded a new build which you can try out here:
http://twiik.net/projects/reap-unofficial-unity-port

It's still using the Web Player although I know its days are numbered. I did try a WebGL build first, but there's just no way, it runs at like 5 fps. Hopefully by the time Unity 5.4 is released WebGL has been optimized some. The Web Player still runs in all browsers (Firefox, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer) except for Google Chrome… read more

Recording high quality videos with Open Broadcaster Software

Recording high quality videos with Open Broadcaster Software

Over the past few weeks I've experimented with a lot of different programs for recording videos, but I've had the most luck with Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) so that's the program this article is about. It's also completely free and, in my opinion, by far the most intuitive, flexible and feature rich program out there.

This article servers to document my ongoing efforts in trying to get good quality video recordings of my Unity projects. I've spent so much time on this now, and in the process managed to get the quality of my recorded videos from absolutely horrible to pretty good, that I guess other people will also be interested in what I've discovered… read more

New resources section

New resources section

I've added a new resources section to my site. My goal with it is to gather all the high quality assets, tutorials, tips & guides I find that are related to Unity and game development in one place.

I made it mostly for my own sake so rather than having bookmarks or using Evernote to keep track of the things I find, I instead have a sortable and searchable (eventually) database on my own website. But then I thought other people may find it useful as well so I decided to polish it some and publish it. It ended up being a massive undertaking, comparable to writing a dozen articles, so I hope you do find some use in it… read more
