Yowan Langlais is a co-founder at Juicy Beast Studio. They are 4 friends making games under that name. They founded the studio back in 2009 and they released over 10 games since then. They're located near Montreal (Canada), and they work in a classy office at the top of a skyscraper. Okay, that was a lie. They actually work from an old tiny storage room in a basement.

Collision/Physics engine in unity have been a blessing, but it has itís fair share of flaws when trying to adapt it to a fast paced platformer, now I will talk about these and the workarounds to get near perfect collision detection.
