Herman Tulleken's Blog
I worked as a game programmer for several years, before co-founding Gamelogic, where we develop software and tools for game developers. To my delight I still get to make many games, although they are a bit smaller now.
In this post I describe some of the issues we encountered when we ported our C# Unity plugin to GameMaker, how we overcame the limitations of GameMaker's language, and what insight we gained into our design because of it.
It's Gamelogic's birthday, and in this post I list some things I did not know about the art and business of making game development tools when we started.
This post gives programming tips for making games fast, usually in a fixed time frame: how to plan and focus, strategies for dealing with tricky code, ways to get unstuck, and what you can do between prototyping projects to get better at it.
