FragCast is a weekly podcast where the founders of Frag Castle Games talk about the latest progress on their games, the video game industry, pop culture and the ups and downs of running a super-small, lean startup.

In This Episode

Jared and John talk about

This week we’re all about making your debugging life easier, dealing with gravity and video game performance.

  • We’re making progress and feeling pretty good!
  • Jared gave Rock the ability to slide under enemy fire. Got some good feedback about it on Twitter.
  • John’s working on a level where Rock is falling from a building. We’re “simulating” him falling by making everything else look like their moving around him. Now we have to customize everything to complete the illusion.
  • Jared has added a ton of features to the debug view in ImpactJS. This week he added a way to overlay the collision map on the scene to debug destructible terrain issues.
  • We talked a little about how awesome the Chrome Dev Tools are.
  • You should learn JavaScript if you haven’t already. Don’t know how to program? You should still learn JavaScript!
  • Finding good games to play with a 5-year is tough.

Currently Playing?

  • Jared’s still playing Not a Hero and not ashamed to admit it.
  • John’s got back into Day of Defeat a little!? Had to disable mouse acceleration.
