ArtStudio is just too good not to leave a review for. I’ve been using Photoshop on my PC for drawing, photo editing, and professional work for the past six years and when I finally got an iPad with Apple Pencil support I was really hoping Procreate or one of the numerous other drawing/editing apps would be able to replace the feel of PS. Unfortunately, even though Procreate is indeed an amazing drawing program, it still doesn’t really satisfy my need for the familiar feel of photoshop and drawing with photoshop brushes. ArtStudio Pro solved all my problems. It’s got everything you could need and MORE (I especially love their amazing smoothing/line weight algorithm and pressure customization). It’s basically Photoshop, but without having to pay the ridiculous Adobe subscription every month. The price for this app is perfect, in my opinion (and honestly it’s even a bit low, for all it’s able to accomplish) and I really want to give a huge thank you to everyone who worked on/is working on this app and updating it. You’ve saved me so much money and frustration. Hats of to you!

GDC18: Designing Titanfall Levels with Action Blocks
11 September, 2018

Let’s check out another amazing talk from GDC 2018. This time, we’ll learn more about the design challenges behind a standout single-player campaign of Titanfall 2. The game features a number of unique and unexpected levels like “Effect and Cause” and “Into the Abyss,” and the thing is that the team faced some significant challenges discussed by Respawn’s Christopher Dionne at the event. 

First, early development stages evolved around comfortable techniques that led to familiar results, but the team didn’t want an expected and uninspired place. Luckily, Respawn used rapid-prototyping technique artists call “action blocks”, which became the key to their design process. 

The talk covers the level “Into the Abyss” and demonstrates how Respawn used action blocks to build the level, explore gameplay, and generate memorable experiences. Take some time to master a new tool that will help you create fun, unique and surprising gameplay.
