I’m delighted to introduce to you one of the earliest members of the Carrots team. Daniel is a curious phenomenon. Although originating from Stuttgart’s countryside, he has learned to grasp surprisingly complex technological matters. Thus, through his expertise in electronics and his mastery of 3D modeling, he is considered a higher being in his home village. Want to convince yourself? Then check out the following interview, and his portfolio.

Today, we lift the curtain for our producer Josef. He had to hold himself back a little, though. Otherwise, his Carrot Card would have been buried under heaps of information, since his interests are manifold. Do you want to know the most recent news of the industry? Ask him. Do you need advice on how to cook a delicious meal out of seemingly ordinary ingredients? He’s the man. Let’s look forward to future blog posts by Josef, but first… enjoy this interview.

Before a game idea is born, there’s void. Then there come thoughts and words. Spoken, written, clustering to concepts .

Btw: if you are interested in her off-game art – and you should be – check it out.

Welcome back to our get-together TCG! Today, it’s my turn say Hello. Thanks to the merciful imagery on my card (thank you, Chantal!), you won’t be able to tell that I’m the eldest Carrot. But since I’m working as a developer for only 3,5 years, I consider myself the youngest team member, in terms of work-years. For more trivia I invite you to follow the lines below. Read More

The pragmatical programmer’s guide to vectors

By | Development | No Comments

This blog post aims to be something like a cookbook for 2D Vectors. As such it will contain very practical recipes without diving into the theoretical background too much. There will be short introductions on how you can derive the formula, but you can also just skip those and go directly to the pseudo code, if that is all you need. Every recipe is nicely illustrated with interactive diagrams written in paper.js. Read More
