Updated: 27 March 2015. The assets I use (and love) (in strict alphabetical order) 2D Toolkit. Even after Unity 4.3 introduced its own 2D engine, 2D Toolkit managed to integrate with it and is still the best 2D solution with the most efficient sprite management, even if since Unity 4.6 I don’t use it for UIs anymore, but only […]

I wake up and open my eyes. The world fades into existence. The world looks like a storehouse. I tilt my head around, noticing the flat grey walls surrounding me, and what looks like an obstacle course ahead. I also notice that I’m standing, which makes me wonder if I’m a horse, since I was […]

Sooo. I closed Holoville Games (and Holoville), and now am DEMIGIANT. I made a new website. Now gotta start a new blog too. The old blog was kind of erased by some crazy server changes (yes, I just posted a link that will bring you to a 404 page, if you’re in the near future, that’s […]
