Hi guys. Get all your coding and game development done before the children come along.

I'm serious.

You CAN'T code with kids in the house.

Go, go do it now, before it's too late.

comment How to avoid “Blob-Systems” in an entity component system?
I agree the principle of being pragmatic and not letting a particular patter get in they way. BUT if ECS is unable to handle this trivial game without deviation, what hope is there for a large game. I too am trying to learn how to use ECS effectively, but I am trying to stay as close to the ECS philosophy as possible, otherwise, once I start making exceptions and special cases, I know I'll end up with an unmaintainable mess.

comment What does 'Discretizing Space' mean in the context of paper prototyping
yes but, HOW does it work? Move one square per turn? what about diagonals? thats much further is that OK in a prototype. What about gravity. What about collisions? If I were prototyping super Mario with this technique, how exactly would it work? Sorry @RussellTrahan I'm not attacking your answer, you're just the first answer and I felt I needed to specify my question.
