Hey, I’m alive! Unity and more part 2

So, continuing from my last post. Let’s see. It’s been some crazy year. I took part to Ludum Dare #31 Jam, with another developer. We decided to take part at almost last minute. With only 24 hours left. So we worked the Saturday, and then the day after that after our normal job, aaaall night long. We started again Monday 20.00 o’clock and finished around Tuesday 03.00. Time zones worked in favor for us! But, ach, these last minutes. We were racing against time to complete the game. I was at the edge of saying “alright. we can’t do it.

I really think it’s what newest programmers getting in the world of games should start working with. Flash gives you the advantage to get straight into designed graphics without the hassle needed from other engines to load the texture into the memory, create a quad (or a mesh), create a UV for that mesh (or quad), and finally place it somewhere on scene. Well, in flash you just load the texture and voilla! It’s visible. There also a bunch of nifty engines out there, like Starling (totally kickass!) and flashpunk(kickass totally!), and a new developer is going to learn a lot. There also easy monetization options. You can pick a publisher for free and upload your game to Kongregate, or sell it to FGL, or build it for desktop, you can put ads, or IAPs. Just imagine it and puff, here you have it.
