Just a small blog post to announce that we got the VAF support for our next game’s pre-production. We’re excited to work on that new game and will give more information as soon as we can share anything about it!
For those who are not familiar with the Unity shader programming language Shaderlab, or HLSL. Unity created an amazing new system called Shadergraph; A node-based system that allows artists to create shaders and materials the same way they can create textures with Substance Designer or similar software.
But using Shadergraph the same way as a texture in substance designer is a huge trap!
The reason is that a shader is executed in real-time every frame within the GPU of the computer.
But why all this introduction to talk about booleans within a shader? It’s just a TRUE or FALSE, right?

When using C#, Interfaces are something easy and quite natural to implement. But since we’re using Unreal, it has been quite a challenge to find reliable information for implementing certain design patterns in C++.
This is especially true for Interfaces, as the pure C++ implementation has nothing to do with the way it’s implemented in Unreal.
During the promotion of Ary and the secret of seasons, Genese Davis and Seb Le Tozue did a very nice podcast with Amanda Sloan and Monika Rabensteiner, talking about how we created such a compelling game and character who is, without a doubt, a feminist role model.

Ary and the secret of seasons is available today on Stadia!
First launched September 1st 2020 on other platforms and is now available on Google Stadia. The game carries its same $39.99 price tag and follows the same story and gameplay too and is based on the latest patch release.
Yesterday we released new updates for Ary and the Secret of Seasons on Xbox one. This patch is fairly similar than the Patch 1.04 on PS4 and aim to fix some of the most common bugs and issues we have seen reported by our community. Again, we appreciate your feedback and will continue to make updates to the game!
