As you may or may not know, Nintendo has never been one for amazing graphics. Usually they go for a cartoon style.

I fundamentally disagree with this notion, while you did touch on it later in this paragraf. I'd say that visually coherent and well done stylistic presentation trumps purely technical graphics any day. And while the new Zelda seems to have a bit of both with regards to volumetric lighting and reflections. It, like World of Warcraft and Super Mario Galaxy makes really good use of their stylistic choices, and I think it is wrong to not call what they do "Amazing graphics". A game like Antichamber is not very visually advanced up front, but it makes for a compelling aesthetic experience nonetheless. Specifically because it combines both the feel of the mechanics and gameplay elements really well.

Tried my hand at some audio distortion by heavily altering samples, was gonna do some sort of simplified 3d animation, but it ended up crashing and I couldn't be bothered to start over. So I threw some distortion effects on a friends drone footage and this is what I ended up with.

Stand Still, Stay Silent

A comic about a post apocalyptic world in which the only known civilization left being in the nordic countries. It has some great and very vivid psychedelic art some times.
ah yes,
Edvard recommended that a while back, your post got me actually reading it though :up:
Script, colouring, and some of the illustrations remind me of Tolkien's illustrations:
lovely drawing  :-*
page 1 reminds me of some of Tolkien's drawings

Oh wow, I didn't see that. Most have completely zipped past me when I skimmed through the thread.

Xenonauts is pretty good, I definitely recommend it. Even if I haven't played it as much as I should.

While I am sure similar software already exists, I spent most of today on creating a small utility that would allow you to very easily put down small notes about what you've been working on and outputting them in JSON, so it would be uploadable to a web server to track time.

I enjoyed this really well animated music video recently, I can understand if the music is not for everyone. But goddamn that animation is smooth and cute.

Post New Requests Here / Re: Programming Language Question
« on: April 27, 2018, 12:08 AM »
Unfortunately I am not well versed enough in AutoHotkey to give you a good answer, but from what I've seen... probably? But it would take a lot more code to accomplish what AutoHotkey can accomplish with a page of script using C#. From what I gather AutoHotkey has a pretty narrow scope (Feel free to correct me here, AutoHotkey gods) of what it sets out to accomplish, and does this extremely well. That scope entailing automation of tasks and small simple UIs to facilitate this, an example being renaming files or doing specific tasks at different times. Whereas C# is designed to be a fairly high level multi paradigm language that you can use for pretty much anything.

« on: April 26, 2018, 10:31 PM »
As Mouser said, there's a lot of things you have to consider before picking a starting language.

I'd recommend C#, it has very clean syntax, you can do a lot of things fast, has great documentation (with regards to the .net framework, for the most part anyway), great guides on how to tackle common tasks and it does all this decently quickly. However, you're pretty much tied to windows since most of the .net framework isn't crossplatform. Otherwise I'd look at some of the prominent scripting languages like Python. While Python definitely has its own quirks and problems, there are a shitton of UI frameworks (Something that definitely speeds up the presentation side of things) out there and libraries to take advantage of.

While I probably won't use your service, I gotta say. Whoever did that website design is pretty talented.
I really dislike those cartoon graphics though, but I can see how they would appeal to people just looking into web scraping.

Living Room / Re: Badly explain a movie.
« on: April 06, 2018, 08:10 AM »
I'd assume you're talking about one of the X-men movies.

Slightly obscure, but memorable danish movie:

Bankteller foils robbery with a squash racket, only to have his girlfriend leave him. Our hero then reunites with his long lost brother to rekindle their brotherly bond.

The game is indeed great, but I wouldn't go as far as call the gameplay great. It is entirely mediocre, but I'd still recommend it for its out of left field mindfuckery.

Ah, right. Should probably have mentioned the inability to actually quit the game.

General Software Discussion / Fruits of my gamejam labour
« on: October 17, 2017, 12:58 AM »
At the behest of Mouser I am gonna post the results of a small local gamejam I joined by the Organization Coding Pirates here in Denmark.

Coding Pirates are a volunteer organization that does community work with kids and young adults to get them interested in technology, programming and mixing these with more artistic endeavors (Like game making or visual arts). I hadn't actually heard of them before, but I saw the event through facebook and decided to join in.

The theme of the gamejam was mirrored from what they had helped the kids in their program work on for the last half year, but we were only afforded 12 hours (actually only 11 hours since the last hour was for a presentation). That theme being "feelings", completely open to interpretation.

The group I was in decided on "The feeling of confusion" as our interpretation, resulting in a maze game that tried to confuse the player through the use of rotating the playing field and teleporters. The game was made in Unity, something I've been dabbling in recently and hopefully can produce a small game in for my NANY. Lots of corners were cut, due to a mixture of us not being the most proficient at Unity, the other programmer in the group never having written any C# and time constraints. We did however produce a fully functional game with well defined gameplay elements and no bugs (as far as I know anyway).

The goal of Squared? (Stylized as "?²") we made is to find 4 keys and reach the treasure behind the locked door.

Gameplay is really simple, you walk around the maze with limited vision, only being able to see neighboring rooms. Compass rooms reorient the gameworld and teleporters move you to another place in the maze, there's also glyph rooms that help you create a mental map (that the rotations hopefully messes with).

We ended up being tied for last place however, because the game wasn't eye catching compared to the other games (that you can also download here)

Scary turn of events. I wonder what's behind the W3C bowing to the corporate overlords in such a way.

Scifi short about VR with a premise seen before. Still has nice visuals and a pretty good sound direction

Did the character "succeed" though? To be it looks more like the character got sent back to beginning opening up the interpretation that you shouldn't disregard others help because of your own stubbornness

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / NANY 2018 Pledge: Some kind of unity game
« on: September 10, 2017, 09:44 AM »
I have been messing around in unity and I think I can churn out a small game. Which I am gonna do!

Would be possible, but I am not sure what reddit/quoras policies are with regards to scraping.

I laughed (political commentary)

Added Naudio to the project, should hopefully be able to play mp3 files now.

edit: Also stops sounds when you press the stop button

edit edit: Also just noticed that that killed the single shot playback. Hurh durh, give me a second

edit edit edit: Should be fixed now

edit edit edit edit: Added a small icon as well

The only issue I've had so far is that the program only utilizes .wav files, which meant I couldn't use the audio file I had originally planned on using.  This was no problem though as I just had to select a different audio file.

I'll look at using NAudio to allow playback of files other than wave at some point in the foreseeable future.
