Amygdala is a platforming action-adventure game in which a disembodied head ventures forth into a mystical world of treacherous obstacles, cunning traps and dastardly enemies to confront the wizard that stole his body.

The game is built for desktop and Android using LibGDX, Box2d and a modified version of Box2dLights for display at the Indie Games Room at Avcon 2013. I roped Sam Entropy(Sam Morris) and Blackwoolholiday(Emily McAllan) to help me with the code and art respectively. It features a large menagerie of enemies and dynamically generated levels with multiple themes. My role as project instigator was to head the design and implementation of the game’s core mechanics and play style and it’s various mobs. The game received an hugely positive reaction on début at the Indie Games Room and launched on October 17 2014 on Windows, Mac and Linux.

This skin was grown yes. On a human body. That is mine. I’m not a robot

I’ve been looking through teefury.com for half an hour and this is the most baffling one I’ve found I think. Like sure, what if that banksy picture was instead a picture about monty python? What then? Where does that get you? I like it because beyond a gut reaction of ‘I know that thing!’ there’s nothing at all to it and I think we should all strive for more feelings like that in 2015.

?↪ LEVERAGE + TV TROPES: Annoying Younger Sibling

The Annoying Younger Sibling is often used by writers as a balance to the “coolness” of the main protagonist. Typically the opposite sex of the main character … Note that this trope is for younger siblings who are annoying to the other characters, not to the audience.

Great TED talk: The workforce crisis of 2030 — and how to start solving it now.

Executive summary: we know now that Malthus and Ehrlich were well-intentioned but wrong. World population isn’t going to spiral out of control; instead, the UN expects it to plateau around 9 billion. After that, the story won’t be population growth but demographic shift, as average age increases and the workforce shrinks.

Automation and technology will replace more jobs and pick up some of the slack, but only some, and unevenly at best. Worse, the steady trickle of new jobs they create will demand modern skills that our aging workforce is ill-equipped to provide.

So much for Population Bomb and China’s one child policy. May you live in interesting times!

- Ryan Barrett: The coming workforce crisis

I Feel like I’m hearing two opposing alarmist views at the moment. First the one that says that there will be too many old people and not enough young people so we won’t have enough people for all the jobs and then I hear things like this:

That say all the jobs are going to disappear. Is it a case of both of these will happen at different times or is everyone making the mistake of trying to predict the future? I genuinely don’t know what my thoughts are here at the moment.
