Josh Sutphin's Blog
I'm Josh Sutphin and I'm an indie game developer! I was previously the lead designer of Starhawk and creator of Fail-Deadly. I'm working on a new game which will be announced a little later this year.
I'm also available on a contract basis for Unity programming (C#) and project development.
You can see all my video game work here, and my writing work is over here.

OUYA provides a Unity plugin, but initial setup is less than straightforward. Here's a simple step-by-step guide that'll set you up from scratch for OUYA development in Unity.

I want to say you 're wrong... but you 're not wrong, and I realized that 's part of what drove me away from the game. I 'm working with a pretty significant change of theme now, in addition to refocusing on more kinesthetic gameplay. r n r nThat said, ...
