Since the inception of Substance, our technology and tools have evolved to make
3D creation accessible to artists of every stripe. In Adobe, we’ve found a great
partner who shares our love of creation and our drive for innovation and growth.
As someone who used to be a heavy user of pretty much the entire Substance

“Unity has clarified to us that this change effectively makes it a breach of
terms to operate or create SpatialOS games using Unity, including in development
and production games,” Improbable said today.
As soon as I read the news earlier today about Unity’s decision regarding
SpatialOS games, I knew it was only a matter of time before another engine

We have enjoyed a successful eight-year run and would like to thank Activision
for their partnership on Destiny. Looking ahead, we’re excited to announce plans
for Activision to transfer publishing rights for Destiny to Bungie. With our
remarkable Destiny community, we are ready to publish on our own, while
Activision will increase their focus on owned IP projects.
It’s hard to believe it’s already been 8 years since Bungie joined Activision.

From Marc Andreessen:
I think AR has tons of potential applications, both at work and at home. [But] I

The timing of this is interesting, coming just days after Stream’s new tiered
pricing favoring larger titles.

I never played the game, but it’s always sad to see an MMO close up shop.
The studio behind Wallace and Gromit will be handing over 75% ownership to it’s
workers, assuring the team won’t be in danger of a big company buyout.
Good. Employers should be able to fire employees based on their political
beliefs, no matter what they are. Political beliefs are a chosen ideology,
unlike race or gender. If your beliefs do not align with a company you work
for, go somewhere else.
Seismic Games is best known for mobile game Marvel Strike Force, (something I
had to do a bit of searching around to learn). Having a group of industry
veterans with experience working on IP based games will hopefully provide a
strong boost for Niantic’s upcoming Harry Potter game as well as Pokemon Go.
