PixelCast 9, Untitled Goose Game, Mode 7, and a Memory Leak!

by Jeremy Alessi on 10/31/19 04:26:00 pm   Expert Blogs

The following blog post, unless otherwise noted, was written by a member of Gamasutra’s community.
The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company.


In episode 9, Jeremy discusses Untitiled Goose Game and a principle, that making games is like playing Apples-to-Apples with your "silly" friends. Jeremy also dives into Mode 7 again and discusses the significance of this line of code:

z = scale - ( Mathf.Cos( Mathf.Abs( distortMap.height / 2 - y ) * Mathf.Deg2Rad ) * 3 );

Finally, Jeremy starts diving into PixelFest 2020 plans with a call for sponsors, indies, artists, and vendors; when the previously aforementioned Mode 7 program sprung a memory leak to the tune of 61 GB and ends the video ;) Fun times!
