Tech Demo #2 (Flappy Bird Clone Plus Other Things)

I forced myself to sit down and learn a few things. I followed a few tutorials, built on the knowledge I had from the previous tech demo, and here we go. Tech Demo #2

Tech Demo #1

So, I sorta made a tech demo for a game I’m beginning ground work on.

It isn’t designed to tell a story, just show off some of the pieces of the engine.

Old Consoles Don’t Die Easily!

ps3-featured
I’ve had my PS3 since release. I was a first adopter of the original 60 GB version, back when manufacturers believed in something called ‘backwards compatibility’.
