Freebie Fridays! Bfxr.

By | July 1, 2016

According to its website, “Bfxr is an elaboration of the glorious Sfxr, the program of choice for many people looking to make sound effects for computer games.” It has a web interface as well as standalone versions for both Windows and Mac.

Freebie Friday!

By | June 24, 2016

Last week’s Freebie Friday! introduced readers to “The Blacksmith: Characters,” an especially nice free Package of character models from Unity. These characters would find themselves right at home in the “Viking Village,” another especially nice free Package from Unity. You can find it here: https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/29140 (Once again, it’s sadly telling that such great free art assets… Read More »

Freebie Friday! Unity Blacksmith characters.

By | June 17, 2016

Unity offers a plethora of good free #gamedev assets. Their Sample Projects page is especially useful for finding development learning resources (that being said, learning and using state machine technology, particularly Playmaker, is far more quick and efficient).

Freebie Friday! Sort of – they’re just websites/youtube channels, but they’re free and they are useful.

By | May 20, 2016

As mentioned yesterday, I’ve spent countless hours researching PC Tablets in the hopes of finding something comparable to a Cintiq Companion, or, at the very least, comparable to my late ASUS EEE b121 Slate (or whatever its official name was, I simply knew it as the greatest piece of technology I’ve ever owned). Research has… Read More »

Freebie Fridays! Google Cardboard SDK

By | May 13, 2016

Don’t know where to get started with Virtual Reality development? I suggest Google Cardboard’s SDK for Unity. Don’t know how to use Unity? Don’t know how to code? Then I suggest checking back tomorrow for an important Self-promotion Saturday announcement! 🙂 A Note from Admin: I hope you found this content useful. If so, please… Read More »
