comment Ease action to simulate a clank in a moving or rotating device near end of the trajectory
Can't it be just piecewise linear? Or you want some smoothing?

comment Mixing Perspective and Orthographic Projections?
@bcrist I think having fixed-size 2D hitboxes is a design decision, and it perfectly makes sense. You don't want gameplay metrics to change depending on where characters are positioned.

comment Fixed timestep with interpolation in AS3
If you suspect a getTimer() accuracy issue, maybe try using Date.getTime() see if you get any difference? Apparently they can differ: stackoverflow.com/questions/7326315/….

You want several files with the same path? I don't get it.

comment How do I render from one render target to another?
You have the depth tests enabled so it might be that all your pixels are discarded by that. Or maybe a problem with alpha. This is the kind of issue that can be easily solved using PIX / Visual Studio Graphics Debugger. Learn how to use it, you won't regret it.

comment Emscripten code and three.js
Looks like there's some attempts to port Ogre 3D: github.com/joeyview/ogre/wiki/document, for instance. Also, check this ticket: github.com/kripken/emscripten/issues/485.

comment Emscripten code and three.js
I'd go the other way around, use a C/C++ engine that can be "compiled" to Javascript, and use WebGL for rendering. Unity 5 for instance should be able to do that very soon. But I don't think there's any open source engine supporting that for the moment.

comment What is an optimum failure rate that will keep people coming back to my game?
@Anko Game design questions will always be more subjective than game programming questions. If we close any game design question because there's a part of subjectivity, then we can as well rename this site to gameprogramming.stackexchange.com. I really hope this doesn't get closed.

I'd say playtest with your target audience, but this hardy makes an answer. So +1 for a good game design question.

comment Tips on how to notify a user of new features in your game
@Heckel If players get used to regular and easily accessible content updates, they're more likely to re-launch the game often.
