Trimming Videos On YouTube

This is a really quick and simple method of cutting/cropping videos that you have uploaded to YouTube (from your PS4 or any source).

Trimming/Splitting Videos On YouTube - Uploaded From Your PS4  

I prefer editing videos this way rather than faffing around with other tools such as the SHAREfactory on PS4. By doing this directly you can always quickly share whole clips from your PS4 without getting completely dragged out of the game :)

Pokemon Go APK Install Instructions

For all those that can't officially download and play Pokemon Go on their Android devices, here is a quick video tutorial on how to get it up and running.

Download & Setup Pokemon Go On Android  

I've been having a load of nostalgic fun with it and I was inspired to start recording videos for it. After some quick searching I managed to stumble upon this absolutely awesome screen capture application: Shou

The app is meant for live streaming as well but I find that it is a very easy to use to record your screen to your local SD card.

Flappy Whale v1.3.0 (Animated Whale)

It has taken us this long but our Flappy Whale is now actually flapping when you tap :D Play the game and check it out yourself by clicking on the show button below!

We toyed between the idea of having the Whale constantly flapping or having it flap only when you tapped. In the end we liked having it flap whenever you tapped as it provided extra positive feedback to the player. Note the Whale will remain stationary as it plummets, reinforcing the need to tap/flap.

Animating the Whale and the glowing rocks has really given me a profound respect for the intricacies involved in animation. It's fun to see how a handful of static images can produce motion but incredibly painful to tweak all the timings to produce the perfect effect.

Flappy Whale v1.2.0 (Pulsating Rocks! - ewry games)

We have decided to pivot and changed the flying obstacles to floating rocks :D. Try to enjoy the gentle pulsating glow of the rocks without crashing right into them! Click the show button below to launch the game.

We're starting to wrap up the game now and there are only a few more visual items we need to tweak. Depending on feedback I may ramp up the difficulty for the Killer mode as well :P

Flappy Whale v1.1 - Animated Skyscrapers

We have just released a new alpha version which you can see a video of above. Alternatively give it a go and play it yourself here (!

Note that there are some visual artifacts and some bugs. Depending on how things go, we might start to port over to Unity very soon.
