Forest Guardians: A Developer’s Tale

Posted by:

Forest Guardians, absolutely the most difficult game project I’ve taken on to date.  That said, it’s been a fun game to develop. I really want to spend some time taking you through my thought processes for developing this game. Let you see what Forest Guardians started out as and what Forest Guardians (almost two years later) finally became.

Where it all started

I knew I wanted to make a tower defense game. I love the genre, I wanted to make a game ...

Cocos2D: Additive Coloring & Flash Style Tinting

Posted by:

We all love Cocos2d. Well, I love Cocos2d and if you’re an iOS developer I’m sure you do too. I mean why not? It’s free and it’s a fantastic 2d game engine. Coinciding this love of Cocos2d comes a love of Flash. And while Flash may be taking a diminishing mobile presence it’s still one of the best platforms to develop a 2d game. I say this from a strictly development perspective, it’s just so easy to prototype and even ...
