Tony's Pick
Bionic Reading showed up a few times in my Twitter feed, but I’ve actually been using it for awhile in my mobile RSS reader (Reeder, and yes I inexplicably still subscribe to RSS feeds.) I can’t speak to the purported improvements in cognition, but I do find I read a bit faster and it’s a bit easier to read long passages for long periods. When I sent this to Kyle he said “That seems clever and I might hate it”, so it’s a win-win for me.
Kyle's Pick
As some who is historically unskilled at art but excited to learn, I’ve been digging sadface ( Happyface )‘s pixel art mini-tutorials on Twitter. They’re mostly single-page, infographic style posts about some particular aspect of pixel art - walking animations, drawing environmental objects like rocks and trees, and so on. There are also video versions of some of the tutorials on YouTube as well.
What We're Up To
We’re working on a prototype for the world’s first Souls-like table tennis game, tentatively titled Doink Souls. Along the way, we struggled to find a good beginning tutorial for Playdate SDK development, so we wrote one. You can check it out here:
