This means that you have likely copied or refactored some code, resulting in duplicated code. This does not mean that you screwed up, it could have just been Perforce or Git screwing with you. Do a quick sanity check and make sure that you have your code laid out appropriately and you should be cooking with gas.

The Curse of Mono =\

A couple weeks ago I was tasked with building a plugin for Unity that would allow testers and developers to take screenshots, comment and submit tickets to our bug tracker, JIRA.

Deficis Released on Steam

The culmination of about 4 years of thinking, vetting, exploring and writing code, Deficis has been released on Steam for use in simulating one very dark and bleak vision of what the future holds for humanity.

  1. 2D/3D Artist visuals (Ship, Planets, Stars, Asteroids, Particle Effects, etc.
  2. Artist for sound effects & music.

It is not likely that this will all be one or two people, and depending on the estimates we may end up extending the offers to multiple parties. For those that are interested, please email with your details, links to your portfolio and samples of your work.
