So after a year and a half, the Adventures in Game Development finally returns with Chapter 17. The team has spent quite a bit of time with Tyler, James, and Jarrod coding all night, abusing caffeine (and beer), and pursuing our passions. It is with this spirit that we finally feel comfortable resurrecting our original series in all of its crude, uncensored, game development goodness.
Please welcome Tyler Rogers to the Elysian Shadows team. He will be contributing to the SDK in the form of scripting (and quality assurance, haha) as well as storyline development.
Please welcome Dual-Threat studios to the Adventures in Game Development. We are extraordinarily pleased to be working with such talented, passionate, and driven individuals. We also think that they will help spice up AiGD and prevent Marcel and Falco from drawing you guys in our technical mindfuckery.
On the ES front, the team has gone rogue and is now supporting Apple products with its engine/SDK... along with Windows, Dreamcast, and PSP.
Marcel has launched a brand new "Toolkit" for the ES SDK written in C++ and using QT. With this new toolkit, the engine and editor are able to share a code base for asset loading. This framework is called the "Joint AssetIO Framework." We are also introduced to the mechanism for capturing debug output of critical loading/saving routines within this framework.
Team Dual-Threat introduces our viewers to the Unity3D engine as well as its component system (along with a comparison to a hierarchal approach). They also show off two of their productions: Prime8 Shooter and Prime8 Racing. Finally, they unveil their most secret of projects "Project Root" at 5AM ... and fall asleep.
