Super juiceful… I mean useful write up about different juicy techniques to make the impact of an attack in a game more satisfying. All of this stuff can be used in hundreds of different ways of course.

The second episode of our game developer podcast is out! This time there’s an interview with Joonas Turner (Nuclear Throne, Badland, Broforce) and Eirik Suhrke (Ridiculous Fishing, Spelunky). The interview is in English, so feel free to skip ahead to that if your Norwegian is somewhat rusty!

Lately I’ve been changing my development environment to Game Maker Studio for future projects. Game Maker is really good for rapidly creating cool 2D games, especially pixel art stuff. As I changed over from HTML5 I noticed that there was something missing… My precious TweenMax.js, which is a very handy javascript based tweening engine, was gone! So I went searching for a replacement. It didn’t take a lot of time before I found this excellent extension over on the forums: http://gmc.yoyogames.com/index.php?showtopic=576358

Being pretty new to Game Maker still it took me a little time to understand that I needed to import all the functions and stuff myself, but after I did it worked like a dream! I can heartily recommend it, now I’m tweening things left and right without a hassle!

If you’re making games, and don’t understand why you need a tweening engine, watch this talk now!

PS. The podcast is in Norwegian I’m afraid, sorry about that all you English speakers!
