Sorry, dude - that's a lot of supposition and questions!
Yes it is with Huey Games. No it’s not Paradroid/Quazatron related. It’s a completely new and unique game. Don’t necessarily expect it to be another 8-bit retro style game.
Cheers for that Starquake, I bought your game by the way.
I'm actually loving my Unity course. It's crazy seeing how quickly you can put something together with prefabs.
Thank you lex-man!
Prefabs are good, but composite prefabs (nested prefabs - but where each child retains its reference to the original) are still needed - I think it’s coming.
I often build entire level sections as prefabs. For example in HS the entire HUD: multiplier area, score, pause menu screens etc are all using one root prefab. When writing for Switch, it is very useful because you they are ideal to use as asset bundles which can be streamed in. As Switch is essentially a mobile platform asset streaming is essential otherwise you’ll get long loading times.
