Coding a Rope-Swinging Game Like Spider-Man 2 and Energy Hook

2013

If you’re a gamer that keeps an eye on new Kickstarter projects, you’ve probably heard of Energy Hook – a game all about swinging from skyscraper to skyscraper and running along walls. It’s created by the technical director and designer of Spider-Man 2: The Game, Jamie Fristrom, and shares the same core game mechanic, but with a greater focus on style.

Over at Tuts+, we’ve just published a new tutorial from Jamie Fristrom explaining how this swinging mechanic works. If you’re interested in making a game like this yourself, or just curious to look under the hood, check it out. And if you like the look of Energy Hook, contribute to the Kickstarter – it ends on Sunday!

Closing the AudioJungle TRAX Category  

by posted in Authors, News
Apr 19
2013

traxA couple of years ago we tried an interesting experiment on AudioJungle – the TRAX category. This category was different from the rest of AudioJungle, and the rest of Envato for that matter, in that we weren’t selling stock. Rather, the items were for the buyers’ personal use. Even though it wasn’t in line with our existing stock model, we wanted to have a place where AudioJungle authors could earn money from their music in a different way.

Microlancer Launches in Open Beta

2013

notes-microlancerApril 2nd was a big day for the Envato team as we launched the open Beta of our new marketplace for freelance services, Microlancer. You can now freely explore the site and buy services!

Microlancer allows those interested in digital creative services like logo design or photo retouching to easily connect with freelancers who have these skills. By creating a platform which allows freelancers to operate their own virtual store-front and to spell out all of the terms of their service upfront to customers, we are taking a different approach to the model used on many other freelance marketplaces.

The focus of the site is to make everything easier for both the buyer and freelancer. A buyer knows everything that they will get upfront, things like how much a service costs and how many revisions they will get. The freelancer doesn’t have to bid for jobs or actively compete against other freelancers for the same job – instead, buyers choose who they want to work with directly based on their service offering. Collis (Envato’s CEO) explained it this way:

Freelance marketplaces are a billion dollar industry, but current sites are virtually all based on the premise of quoting for a job. It’s like going to a hairdresser and having them bid and quote on your particular hair. Some types of service work are better done with fixed price, fixed services. We’re bringing that mindset to creative / tech freelancing.
