New plugin: Noise 2.0

Developer Arsonide is well known for creating the very useful Perlin Noise plugin. Now he took the concept to a whole new level with the Noise 2.0 plugin, which includes awesome stuff like ridged multifractal noise, voronoi noise, planatery noise, color mapping, lighting and even integrated camera controls!

So apparently this opens a whole lot of new possibilities for creating procuderal game content. Think about entire universes created by this wonderful plugin. Hot damn!
Go ahead, learn all the details and download Noise 2.0 in the official thread.

Oh, and if the plugin proves useful to you and you'd like to support the developer, you should consider donating.

Construct 2 release 32.2

In case you haven't noticed yet: there's a new C2 public preview release out. In this one behaviors are being introduced, so you definitely don't want to miss out on that. Also very handy: you can simply drag pictures into the layout to create a new sprite. Yay!

Lerp that angle!

Before this gets buried all too deep within the depths of the official Scirra forum and will be lost to future generations, I thought I do the little that I can and mention it here on the blog.

If you ever had trouble interpolating angles properly, you don't have to resort to more or less sketchy workarounds anymore. All thanks to Construct-uberuser lucid, who made a mini-plugin with one single purpose: providing an anglelerp expression.

Yes folks, you better believe it and get this useful tiny thing asap from here.

Minitroid Tech Demo released

I'm sure I haven't been the only one adoring the sheer cutish beauty of the Minitroid project, which is a Metroid fangame being developed by Tokinsom, alongside graphics artist Betatronic and composer Jamie Billings. So far there have only been screenshots and videos to stare at, but now you can finally get the long awaited hands-on experience with the tech demo.
