Powerhoof! powerquest


Blog update!

Comments are back!

After years of neglect I (Dave that is) have finally fixed wordpress so that comments show up on pages again! WordPress keeps updating automatically on me and breaking things, and I’ve been pretty lazy with fixing it. This site was really hacked together back in 2013 and it’s showing the signs! We haven’t exactly been writing much on this blog for the last few years either, poor thing’s been lonely.

Tshirts are back!

We have a new Tshirt Store! Thanks to my wife Clare for getting that sorted for us! Go grab some powerhoof shirts!

Infrequent updates are back!

So what else’s been happening? Well, we’re still going strong, just haven’t posting much here. We’ve been mainly hanging out on Discord (https://discord.gg/powerhoof) and sharing things there. Barney shares a lot of nice Acid Knife gifs on the twitter too.

So check out either of those places if you need more powerhoof in your life!

Showing off my adventure game tools

I’ve been putting together some tools for making point and click games in Unity, and wanted to share how I’ve done things and how I’d use them to make adventure games

So I’ve made a 3 part series showing it off:

It covers my history with using tools like Adventure Game Studio, and how they work, and then shows how I use the tools I’ve made in unity to set up a scene and script some dialog and puzzles.

I’m not planning on making the tools public, they’re too specific to our workflow to be generally useful without loads more work. But if you’re curious to try anyway, or have a gander at any parts of the code let me know (contact @ powerhoof.com), or feel free to tweet questions (@DuzzOnDrums) at me too .
