Creating Unity in Unity

On of the features I absolutely love about Unity is the hierarchy and inspector. Recently, I wanted to be able to tweak settings in my game while on the go. Games are hard to get right and it takes tons of tweaking to get balance and settings just right. Also, I didn't want to have to create a custom interface for every single setting I wanted to change. Really, what I wanted was an In-Scene Unity Inspector. I looked everywhere to see if I could find one but I could not. So I did what most programmers wanting to save time would do: I spent a bunch of time creating one.

Rapid Prototype with Sprite CIty

This week I decided that it was time to create a video. Before this video, my only editing experience was in Windows Movie Maker. So, I decided to download Adobe Primere Pro and see how it felt.

Here is the video demo we created a demo displaying how easy it is to hammer out a top down shooter with Sprite City.

Building the TP Team

I wanted to share a little bit about the Tiny Phoenix team with the community. My name is Mike. I've been involved in game development for a while now. I am a programmer and used to think wanting to be a game developer was like wanting to be a football player, only with less manliness on top. It wasn't until my junior year of college, when I was forced to make a game, that I fell in love.

Creating our Logo

In the name of finally sharing things on the internet in hopes of de-hermitizing myself, I've decided to start at what I thought was a pretty logical point: the long and grueling process I put our first artist through when we created our logo. I had a folder with each stage and thought it would be fun to story board it out. So without further delay here it is:
