The first episode covers one of the most basic genres: Platformers.

The story is too old to be commented.

This guy actually looks like one of my college professors.

lol I know right; although he seems extremely angry, frustrated and sexually repressed, and really with that face who can blame him?
And btw this video is in no way connected to my account, just saying lol

My apologies for any confusion. Yes, to make it clear, this Gaming 101 has no affiliation to that Gaming 101.

Hopefully we can settle this on the Ultimate Frisbee court. Or Thunderdome.

I wish it was more about things you have to worry about in making videogames, but still a fun and good video regardless!

My favorite topic to talk about on 2D game development is putting a character (which are made of squares/rectangles) on a sloped surface. The answer in the end in either make a sprite for every solution (not doable on systems without tons of sprite character space) or pick your poison trying to cover it some other way, or not at all, heh. :)
