Sir Pietro “Design a Game” Polsinelli and I talk a lot about videogames, and this year we decided to wrap up our favorites (among the ones we played, obviously). So here’s more of those utterly subjective lists—made maybe a little too early, since there’s still half a month to the end of the year. Daniele’s favorite PC games of […]

Since I’m a nerd and a Unity asset dev, I have tons of Unity installations (even if way less than Jean Fabre who is crazy). So here’s a ZIP with different icons (Windows .ico and OSX .icns) for each Unity major, minor and beta version. Red icons are the ones intended for betas.   Download Unity Icons […]

Beware, this is an utterly and completely subjective list of those games that, in my humble opinion, boast the best narrative and/or stories. Since my memory sucks, there’s a lot of missing stuff, and I’m making this mostly as a mean to remember these games in time. So that, when I’ll be old and my nephew (if […]

I participated in the last LD31 (with The Screening, made with Gaetano Leonardi and Luigi di Guida), but for this LD32 I am way too busy, so I’ll have to skip it. Still, I just came back home to check the theme: An Unconventional Weapon Then gave me the usual 15 minutes to come out with a game […]

This upgrade guide is aimed at HOTween users that want to switch to the new (and much much better, if I may say so—and by Jove I can: I made them both) DOTween. The logic HOTween and DOTween share the same logic. They both have Tweener, Sequence, and more generic Tween classes. They both have the same range of settings […]

I used tween engines all my life, and in the last 4 years I even made two of them (HOTween and DOTween —HOTween v2— for Unity). So I can shamelessly state that I’m kind of an expert, or at least I’m in the know. Anyway, one question I get asked very often is: “What is a tween engine?” […]

In these days I’m finally releasing Goscurry on Steam. Marketing is important for a release, and that means not only magazines but also YouTubers. The relationship between game developers and YouTubers has sometimes been the subject of some controversies, but in the end it’s very reciprocal. We create games they can make videos about, they give us exposure and fresh […]

Combu: leaderboards and more for Unity, on your server

Combu: leaderboards and more for Unity, on your server

Until a few months ago, I used to rely on an online platform for the leaderboards of my games. It was easy to use and free within a limited amount of users, so I was happy. But there was a con, which I realized only later: being an online platform, I had to rely on someone else’s servers for my leaderboards to […]

I found this unpublished and incomplete post of mine, written in July 2014, on December 2017. Even if it’s pretty old I decided to publish it anyway (keeping the original date when I wrote it), since I believe it can still be useful advice. I hope that soon I’ll find the time to write something more recent, because I […]

I’m trying to get better at writing in English, so last evening I asked my stepson Andrej (also known as Mister Aki) to give me a random theme, so I could write a quick short story in some half an hour or so. I’m not even trying to use a “writing style”, considering I still spend a lot […]
