Hangout Highlights – Using Gravity In Games and Creating 2D Shadow Effects Using Custom Shaders
Last week on Corona Geek Hangout 154, Steven Johnson from Xibalba Studios shared his code for creating a custom 2D shadows shader example and Roaming Gamer’s, Ed Maurina showed us how to simulate and use gravity in a game similar to They Need To Be Fed 3. Download the project source code to follow along with the conversation.
