My most recent gamedev stream for carPG-13 involved a demonstration of my car NPCs and their ability to navigate around a world on their own without a nav mesh by using a ray cast detection system. You can find out more in the video below:
I will be taking a break from carPG-13 in the coming months because I have started working on a VR RTS game which I will be releasing in partnership with my current company, BrainRush. After helping my friend Edwon on his VR virtual pet, I have learned a lot about the design strengths and limitations in VR and I think that my VR RTS fits nicely into the VR system.
My friend Mykolas and I are beginning a book on our favorite game Pathologic, we will be playing through the game together 3 times in the coming months while taking notes and outlining our book. We expect the book to be done in 2017. Mykolas and I have been discussing the game design behind Pathologic since high school (8 years ago) and we find it to be the most relevant topic of discussion in video games, so we are finally going to take action and attempt to share our ideas with the world.

Book Recommendation: “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie, a great read for anyone looking to improve their ability to manage a team or expand their network – or interact with humans in general.
