An attempt to make a good looking cityscape with nothing but simple tricks and a few rectangles of light.

 

Good Robot Dev Blog

An ongoing series where I work on making a 2D action game from scratch.

 

A Star is Born

Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.

 

Starcraft 2: Rush Analysis

I write a program to simulate different strategies in Starcraft 2, to see how they compare.

No Man's Sky is a game seemingly engineered to create a cycle of anticipation and disappointment.

 

Diablo III Retrospective

We were so upset by the server problems and real money auction that we overlooked just how terrible everything else is.

Spoiler Warning:
