The Missing Middle In Game Development - There was no Unity, Gamemaker, Godot, or Unreal so if you wanted to make a game you had to have a full-time person (in their case John Carmack) crafting your game engine from scratch (usually in C or machine code) every time. There was no widely accessible internet or cloud-based source-control or storage so you couldn’t work remotely. Yet, despite all the limitations of the 1990s, the guys at id Software could make 13 games in 1 year. How is it that we have better tools which should make us more productive, and better communications that should increase collaboration, and digital distribution which has, essentially, 0 marginal cost, and yet games take longer to make?

Maze 2.1.0 - In this tutorial we'll add occlusion culling to the maze, so that we can avoid rendering cells that are not visible. This is beneficial besides frustum culling and depth sorting because it reduces the amount of draw calls and the amount of geometry that needs to be depth-tested. It will also allow us to disable shadow-casting lights that are fully occluded.

Omnidirectional Squash & Stretch Now in 3D - The basic idea remains the same: use numeric springs to track speed and movement direction. A stretch factor is computed via clamped interpolation from the tracked speed. Scale the object in the movement direction by the stretch factor, and scale the off axes by 1 / sqrt(stretch) for volume preservation (note it's no longer 1 / stretch because it's now in 3D instead of 2D).
