Business Leads The Horse To Water

Now that we've let our April Fools Day update sit for a bit, it is time to do the actual update. This time, as it is the first part of the quarter, we are covering how the business itself is running.

Missing Worlds Media Announces New Management For City of Titans

For Release, 1/4/2015, Missing Worlds Media, Inc announces immediate handover of their forthcoming MMORPG, titled “City of Titans” to the creative mind of Richard Gariott and the fine folks at Portalarium.

How A Tree Can Make All The Difference - Map Optimization

When we made our current test map, one of the first things we noticed was that while it looked good, its performance was far below what we were expecting.

The 3D department has come forward to show off our our first test-hood map where our models are placed, studied, developed and improved for the next version. Models and textures for buildings and roads and stoplights and all sorts of things come here to be worked on. Because everything looks better in context.

Idea, Build, Test, Repeat - Rapid Prototyping

Part of the key to development is the rapid prototyping and evaluation of ideas. One of the beauties of the 4th generation Unreal Engine is the Blueprint system, a core of the engine which enables us to prototype systems rapidly. Thanks to this, we can let ideas flow, and get results quickly enough that we can explore innovation that otherwise would need to be left alone.

12 Days of Devmas, Day... 13?

Is… is it gone?

Well, I suppose there’s one last present. From us to you.
People have been complaining that Black Gold’s party art was a little too small… so here it is, full size.

12 Days of Devmas, Day 12

It's... it's the last day. We survived. Sure, the egg nog came to life... but we made it.

Guys. One last chorus and we're free! FREE TO TAKE OVER THE EARTH!

*dev team chorus*

On the twelfth day of Devmas,

your dev team gives to thee,

Twelve roaches clattering,

Eleven brushes painting,

Ten hammers fixing,

Nine foxtails a-spinning,
