Moveset Editor – Video

One of my last team’s biggest takeaways from showing at GDC 2016 was that our title’s combat just wasn’t good enough. It didn’t feel quite right and the animations didn’t flow the way players wanted them to. So when I got back to the studio I revamaped that whole system. Initally all the detecting of […]

Shattered Might Character Manager

Here you see our character sheet editor; Another case of bringing a ton of separate components and scripts together in a single convenient place to edit. It had a whole inheritance system, so a designer could bump the health, or whatever, in a base enemy type and have those changes cascade into anything that inherits […]

However, recently I have been getting more and more acquainted with the Microsoft desktop workflows. [...]

Glimmer 360 video cloud render server

I wouldn’t call myself a web developer by any standard, but if the team needs some custom server or simple web based tool, I can generally put that together without too much of an issue. That is, as long as it’s just for internal use and not expected to scale to thousands of users. Here […]

Input Recording

This was a fun little tool that I would sometimes put effort into when trying to distract myself whenever I felt stuck on where to next take some of the larger systems. It did help save time for a number of team members, especially the level designers and animator. They could quickly save some input […]
