When I play a game, I am always on the lookout for little details that make me laugh or that immerse me further the game world or that simply make me think "that was cool!". These details, in general, have nothing to do with the gameplay, add nothing to the main plot, nor do they change anything in the game world, but they are still often the high points of a session for me. What I'm talking about are easter eggs and eye candy - two things that add far more to a game than you might suspect at first glance.

This game is looking nice now I do actually have an urge to play it

 

Great read, even if some of the things you talk about are a bit too advanced for me if something interests me i can always research it further, like surfaces and shaders

Wait why are you stopping the blogging!!!!! <snip>

I'd love to be able to continue these tech blogs indefinitely, but unfortunately I can't... I've been writing them retro-actively until now, but with this weeks blog we are up to date with the development of my game Skein, and so further development diaries will be published as and when I have something new worth sharing.

That is glorious. I don't want to spoil what happens, but it is 10/10-level amazing.

 

Talk about easter eggs.

Looking nice Nocturne! Would you be able to post the code for the pause screen with the background shader without applying the shader to the pause menu? Did you use DrawGUI begin and end events?
