Community Quotes 01

Welcome to a brand new TMD feature – Community Quotes! Back on another blog I used to run (in a time long forgotten) we used to gather up the best tweets every few weeks or so from the game dev community, and I’ve been asked on many occasions when I’m going to bring it back. Well now, with TMD, I can! So here goes, without further delay, it’s time for some Community Quotes…


We’ll kick off with Lemmings developer and GameMaker king Mike Dailly, who struggled earlier this month to find something inspiring to say:

Stay tuned for more on that one.


Back to serious game dev and this tweet from Tom Francis pretty much speaks for itself:


Just like Daniel Linssen, I’m not heading to GDC this year, but I’m not sure I’ll handle it in the same way:


And finally, I want to move onto some cool GIFs from projects I’ve been following closely on Twitter. GameMaker user Blake Garner‘s been working on an intriguing project called Entangle, which comes out in 2 weeks and is easily the most GIF-friendly GameMaker project I’ve ever seen:


Meanwhile, Denis Darftey brings us everything you want in a GIF. Humour and explosions:


Lily Carlyle – liliththepale of GMC Jam fame – has been showing off her latest project:


And finally, for all you cat lovers out there, Meowza brings us this adorable and biologically accurate commentary on kitty behaviour:
