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. I still get to make many games, although they are a bit smaller now and mostly to show off our tools. I occasionally write technical articles; mostly on game development. Here is a list: http://code-spot.co.za/writing/.
In this article I share my thoughts on how to think about bugs, how to get rid of them, and how to get better at it.
This article contains some ideas for building mazes by making various modifications to a simple, standard maze-generation algorithm.
This article describes many strategies for working with Unity to make your projects simpler to understand, harder to break, and quicker to ship.
In this article we look at color in games: its function, how technology has improved color display, and how our biology affect the perception of color.
In this post we share some of the interesting (and obscure) facts we uncover in our quest to know everything we can about grids and their use in games.
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.

A scratchpad test as I use the term is a quick, disposable test to see how something works. I use this type of test most often to test how library functions behave or to figure out my understanding of some small issue how should a matrix look that performs a ...

Yes, it is indeed true. I have seen other advice that recommends to prototype using tech that cannot be used for production Lisp :P to avoid this issue, but that too comes at a price since many programmers are way faster in their everyday production tech-environment . r n r ...
