comment What do you look for in a scripting language?
@Joe Wreschnig: "Here's why I picked what I did" is not the same as "Here's what I actually want".

+1 This helps me out quite a bit, thank you. I'll wait to see if there's any further discussion, but I think you covered it well.

@Randolf: Good point. The only problem with obfuscation is that it tends to rely on a stable language, which young languages aren't. An obfuscator that works with 0.10 might not work with 0.11.

comment Where can I go to find a game graphic artist?
+1 for PixelJoint, though you must be keenly aware of forum etiquette there (and wherever you go!) so you receive responses from good artists.

comment What are the performance difference between unsigned and signed integers?
@JoeWreschnig: Damn. I can't seem to find it, but I know I've seen examples of different assembler output accounting for defined wraparound behaviour, at least on certain platforms. The only related post I could find: stackoverflow.com/questions/4712315/…

comment How do I fix this weird lighting problem?
To fix vertex normals in Blender, select all the vertices (A) then use "recalculate normals outside" (Ctrl+N).

comment How to create the “drunk camera” effect in GTA 4?
"If you have played GTA 4, then you have probably been drunk at some stage." Because you must have been drunk to play a GTA game, eh? ;)

comment Where to hire graphic designers for mobile games?
@Axidos: It's dangerous to suggest that; DA's pixel gallery is flooded with poor quality work, because many people misunderstand the medium and techniques.

comment What things should an indie game developer never do?
Then again, I made the "mistake" of making an engine first, but now I have a nice, well-designed engine and am working on actual games. Your mileage may vary.

comment What is “pixel art”?
This answer is not entirely accurate. Pixel art does not imply a "boxy look", nor is "a lot of pixel art" done on a large scale and colour-reduced. Any pixel artist will tell you that automated size- and colour-reduction is in fact not pixel art at all. Though there is a substantial amount of "low-spec" art these days, there is in fact very little actual pixel art in high-profile games. And your example is of poor quality. If you want to see many good examples of great pixel art, check out the hall of fame at PixelJoint. pixeljoint.com/pixels/new_icons.asp?ob=rating
