Let me set the scene here :

The GDC14 was just finished, I only had the saturday to visit San Francisco a little more.
Last year I've done a great tour, but couldn't reach the Rock !
What a great opportunity to capture all sort of textures, of rotten and twisted metals to the famous decaying prison^^.

But, on my way to it, I just crossed the visitable WorldWarII submarine, the mighty USS PAMPANITO .
I was like a kid in a toy-store ; you can't imagine how many pictures of pipes and "steampunk devices" I took !
Enough to drain a lot my camera's battery...
So the boat was boarding, and I had no juice left to make my camera work... but I have always my work with me ^^.
... I just sat in Alcatraz library, refilling my camera on my computer, while killing time... on Unity's game development of course !

@Cosmogonies.. coding GOAT in Alcatraz is utterly, ridiculously cool... especially coming there after the 2014 Game Developers Conference :shock:

Which bits of GOAT code did you tinker with in Alcatraz... was it the camera system? B'cos I know you had a significant hand in that :idea:

Only Cosmogenies went to GDC 2014 San Francisco, I guess he attended for some other projects he's working on, or maybe he popped in just for fun (the cost depends on the level of access... tickets can be a bit pricey to attend everything).

GDC is mainly for game devs and press, showcasing current and forthcoming titles. Seith knew GOAT - an early build, maybe the alpha with a playable level - wouldn't be ready until mid-summer 2014... which would be quite a lot too late for the SF GDC (in the middle of March).

But look out for a forthcoming announcement on a similar topic. Hopefully Seith will release the news soon, because then I can share some Tilo-related cool stuff that I've been doing in Bangkok, which hopefully you'll find fun and interesting :mrgreen:

...a clue! a mystery! Mmhmm... trap mechanics perhaps? Some kind of suspended cage puzzle? An ingenious reference to the falling basket cage in the board game game Mousetrap?
