If you're keen to try your hand at writing games, my new tutorial will show you how to program a simple game using the Orx engine and using only a tiny bit of C++. Great for beginners in C++, and all within 48 minutes.
The PS4 and I have never been friends. But when I discovered No Man's Sky I started putting some hours into it. That was the v1.00 disc version. But there were bugs.
How could I update the v1.00 version to something slightly newer and not have it update to the very latest?
I had some obstacles.
This year was my first ever visit to PAX. I went to the Saturday session. A pretty amazing time. The people, my goodness the people. The organisers sure know how to pack them in.
But for me, it was all about the PAX Rising area right at the start of the whole show.
This game has been in progress for a number of months. This is mainly due to it being used to create teaching material on the wiki for the Orx Portable Game Engine. Also, it was used to help bring major improvements to the Orx Engine, namely gamepad controller support and Mac Retina support. Very pleased to finally release this.
