In this entry, we learn how a little bit of recursion can make some big waves with the flood fill algorithm.
In this entry, we learn how to use Bresenham’s line algorithm to connect two points quickly and efficiently.
In this entry, we dive into the fascinating world of map generation using Cellular Automata.
In the second entry in the series, we learn about the data structures we will be using in future procedural generation techniques.
This is the first entry in a series about creating procedurally generated content using GMS 2.3.
The awesome Elizabeth Howell (@howellspace) recently wrote a review for Spaceslingers at space.com. Here’s a snippet: …In a way, “Spaceslingers” teaches us a subtle lesson about the real world of spaceflight. In the early 1960s, launching rockets was something we struggled to achieve, and even today the possibility of rocket failure makes us feel tense […]
While I’ve been working on the Workshop update to Spaceslingers, I’ve been doing some procedural generation work on the side. Proc-gen is one of my favourite things to play around with, it’s always super cool to see what you can make the computer create. So, as is my wont, I’ve been making map generators. Contents […]

I’ve just launched Spaceslingers on both the itch.io and GameJolt platforms! It took me quite awhile to gut the Steamworks integration out of the game and build my own online leaderboard for the platforms, but it’s done (well, it was done a little while ago, but I’ve been super busy and haven’t had time to […]
Five hard earned lessons I learned about marketing while making Spaceslingers for $0…
