• Rewarding Failure – Super Rude Bear Resurrection

    So, I just unleashed my heartwarming ursine death simulator onto Steam Greenlight.

  • Rude Bear Raid – Postmortem

    So, I just completed my eighth Ludum Dare entry (and fifteenth jam game). In Ludum Dare 28 I won the innovation category with Rude Bear Resurrection. It’s been a bit over a year since then, and I’m due to release the full version on PS4/Xbox One/Steam this year.

  • Migi Osu: Postmortem

    So, this weekend I was exhibiting Super Rude Bear Resurrection at Insomnia53 (UK’s largest LAN party), and ended up making a game for the Indies Vs PewDiePie jam on a whim with a bunch of other exhibitors.

  • Rude Bear Revengeance – Post Mortem

    So, Ludum Dare just ended, and as always, I made a Rude Bear game. The big change here is that I had an artist, and I got a couple of musicians on Reddit to help out with the soundtrack. Now, when the theme was announced, I really couldn’t think of any mechanic based on the…

  • Midas Postmortem

    So, Rezzed just passed, and I competed in the game jam in the “wildcard” team that’d never met each other before.

  • How to Make Water for Unity2D – Quick Tip

    Hey guys, I just wrote an article for GameDevTuts+ on how to add flowing water in Unity and integrate it with Unity2D’s physics. It’s what I used for Rude Bear Resurrection, (albeit in that case a basic version because I was low on time). You can check it out here. Enjoy!

  • How Rude Bear Resurrection works – Quick Tip

    Hey I just wanted to point you in the direction of another article I wrote for gamedevtuts+. It’s how I wrote the leaderboards in Rude Bear Radio, and is responsible for Rude Bear Resurrection’s world mechanics. Here’s how I make the leaderboards and communicate with them in Unity.
