Made some sneaky gifs of this month’s small game ~
This one is experimenting with disarm-able enemies and swapping characters ‘lost vikings’ style. Sorry about the gif ratios.

Titan Panther

Quick and dirty making of Titan Panther

Advantage – Jump core and a strong melee attack
Disadvantage – Unable to wield any primary weapons

It’s a nice familiar concept, they hold on to the commission money until everything’s done so the commissioners know they’ll get the work and the artists know they’ll get paid.

Fix for initial stroke delays with Windows 8 and Wacom tablets

I recently plugged in my tablet on my windows box and noticed a weird quirk with the pen strokes when trying to draw sketches or produce illustrations with it. (Now this has been an old problem but never addressed in any official update or fix so just in case you’re still having troubles this could potentially help) So here’s the situation:
When click and dragging, there is a very noticeable delay at the start of the click.
