Next up game mechanics and theory, music, custom crafts, and some code refactoring to get this working on appleTV Phil and Geoff testing multiplaya from happyMedium on Vimeo. More testing with the light blue bean from happyMedium… Read more »

So the idea is to create an iPad or iPhone or appleTV came that allows for multiple input controls.

It’s reminding us a bit of this iconic album cover: Geoff has put together this neat hilly terrain by working off of the Perlin noise function. If you’re not familiar with Perlin noise, according to Wikipedia: “Perlin noise is a type of gradient… Read more »
