Shattered Skies – The End and the Rebirth

Friday, April 13th, 2018 at 9:23 am | Audio | Video

Hello from Tumblr! I’ve been thinking, and I realize that my WordPress blog posts are basically Tumblr posts anyway. I might as well make it a Tumblr blog because I lose almost nothing. I plan to re-make all of my WordPress posts as proper Tumblr posts, properly reblogging the Tumblr stuff this time to comply with the posters’ wishes. For instance, my post for PiNe’s illustrations will become reblogs of every image when possible. Once I learn to Tumblr properly and get my theme and cross-posts working correctly, this is going to be good.

Kaplamino – The blue marble

Thursday, February 8th, 2018 at 1:35 am | Video

Domino builder Kaplamino also experiments with Rube Goldberg contraptions like PythagoraSwitch. Here, Kaplamino challenged himself to launch a tiny blue marble all over a tilted table in using clever magnet tricks. All these unstable setups arranged in 2D make me want to play some Incredible Machine.

Really Bad Chess

Friday, December 29th, 2017 at 10:30 pm | Game

Really Bad Chess is a randomized chess game for iOS and Android. Both sides often start with several bishops and knights up front and multiple queens in the back. Never mind protecting all your pieces; both players’ material is going to get bodied for free.

When not occupied with yet another mobile game, I’ve been distracted by the hallway thing in the background, bootleg Famiclones, current events, and feeds getting added, dropped, and shut down. If you want to see more of the kinds of stuff I post, I suggest following TwistedSifter and Something Random.

PiNe

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017 at 10:31 am | Image

I haven’t done one of these artist posts in over a year. Let’s fix that with PiNe. PiNe delivers vivid scenes and cool character designs in a handy RSS feed.

Trick or Treat!
When I saw this on today's Pixivision Halloween post, I knew today I'd have to post this too. Google Translate translates the Japanese title to "I do not have to make sweets!"

Pangaea
This one is from PiNe's artbook, Pangaea. I only found this one on the Tumblr and it doesn't show a name of its own.

BirthStones
So here's a mid-page art style shift that the artist uploaded on my birthday. The Tumblr description says "From top left to right bottom, May Emerald, June Moonstone, August Peridot, December Turquoise, September Sapphire, January Garnet, July Ruby, February Amethyst, March Aquamarine, November Topaz, April Crystal and October Opal."

Runaway
Of course there's floating stuff. You know how long I've resisted posting all these "Floating Pine" images? This is as close as I'll let it get.

Lemonade
Another one of those scenes that only works in fiction. Where would I get a glass this big? So refreshing!

GameHut Coding Secrets

GameHut is a YouTube channel run by Jon Burton, founder of Traveller’s Tales and producer of Lego games and movies. His series on Coding Secrets dives deep into the Sega Genesis versions of Sonic 3D Blast and Toy Story to explain how he achieved those great graphics. He really used all the resources to do things the hardware was never meant to do.
