Nic's development tweets

I tweet a lot about the development of Fringe Planet - as well as talking about game development in general. Twitter is fantastic for getting the message out, but tweets always slowly fade out of view as time goes past. So I've decided to add this section to the website, which contains everything I've tweeted. You'll find a lot of information about both me personally as well as the game.

I've got x million moving triangles on screen, with shadows and lightning, updating it multiple times a second. The shear power of modern computers is mind blowing. How far we have come from such humble beginnings :-) #gamedev

Dear people offering solo #gamedev folks services. If your message starts "Hi team!" - I'm not going to read the rest of the message as it shows you've put zero effort or research into my project.

(p.s. and also running a speelchecker is a good idea :-))

Outlook 365 giving a meeting notification 16 minutes before the meeting starts instead of the normal 15 minutes - this worries me oO

Good morning folks, a happy Monday to one and all :-) Wishing you the best for the coming week - may it be an awesome one for you :-) I've got a fresh cuppa and I'm ready to start the #gamedev - what are you up to?

(p.s. any one else having problems with notifications?)

Good morning folks, happy Friday to one and all :-) It's been raining pretty much all night, which has been fantastic at bringing the temperature down :-) What are your plans for today folks? #gamedev

Not gonna lie, not normally interested in drama, but the Epic vs Apple stuff is incredibly entertaining :-) #freefortnite

By performing the forbidden rituals and opening an interdimensional portal to the Plateau of Leng in your bedroom and using it as aircon :-)


Just knocked my PC and a cup holder popped out of it, I'd forgotten completely it had one. When was the last time you brought physical media for your PC?

Currently being meowed at because I won't turn the rain off. It's a hard life being a cat :-/

Good morning folks - happy Thursday. I don't want to tempt fate and say that I think it's going to be considerably cooler today, but it is super overcast and feels cooler than it has done for a few days. I'm about to #gamedev - what are your plans for today folks? :-)
