If Twitter does die, I’ll miss it. Amidst the wailing lie sure gems, like this thread of builders sharing confessions and cheeky methods from throughout their careers. We’re speaking cobbling rat-tunnel ducts collectively to type a makeshift flare launcher in Dishonored, or utilizing the underside of a bleach bottle as a stand-in for a light-weight fixture. I’ve picked out a few of my favourites – come and enjoy them with me.
First off, here is that bottle: a galaxy mind play courtesy of Valheim VFX Artist Andi Jorgensen.

In the identical vein, here is Dishonored marketing campaign director Dana Nightingale’s flare launcher. Flawless work.
I favored Antoine Henry’s quick story of working to a rushed Rayman Raving Rabbids 2 schedule, the place a necessity for extra mini-games resulted within the creation of 1 that merely requested gamers to “Focus to attain factors” then handed them out randomly. (Gamers confidently reporting their successful methods jogs my memory of that enjoyable examine about superstitious pigeons).
Shaun Finney contributed one other ingenious approach of dodging time constraints, sadly not usable on this period.
Wallace & Gromit was an early XBLA recreation and was required to launch from reminiscence playing cards. There was a crash bug when launching off 256mb playing cards, however not 512mb playing cards. So we simply added a 20mb sound file to the sport, making it too huge for 256mb playing cards. Handed cert no downside after that! https://t.co/qftHxiPu75

An entire lot of devs cop to sneaking the Loss meme into their video games, too, which is neat however not half nearly as good as bleach bottle lighting fixtures. Props to Danny Sweeney for kicking off the enjoyable, although. Peruse the thread for your self, in case you fancy.
