The Developer Series is a video project following the creation of Black Sun: Retribution. Using aggressive timelapsing and cuts, it weaves between the various elements necessary to build the project, from planning to testing, to creation of assets, such as models and particle effects, to deployment. The developer series is recorded and presented in a chronological fashion, featuring extensive commentary.

As is standard with my productions, no effort is made to censor the end product or render it politically correct. This series is not for the faint of heart, as often great amounts of time are wasted trying to resolve vague issues or overcoming difficulties in asset creation, which are reflected upon my person. Personal subjects are often touched upon, covering physical ailments to struggles with my disabilities and, of course, the great enemy of projects, motivation. This series doubles as a documentary of my lifestyle, seeking to pierce the veil behind the energy that goes into building such efforts.

Except in the most extreme rare of circumstances which are noted in the video, all commentary was done live during the production. Enjoy the one-way conversations with people on vent, the random ranting, and excessive reverance of penises.

This project is presented in two major parts - the Developer Series itself, which is a diligently edited video series following construction of the project when I felt inclined to record, and the Demo series, which contains all of the major processed recordings of Retribution, and any relevant assessments that were created. These were handed to internal viewers for critique purposes throughout the project's lifespan and tell the story of the project's progress in Sins and the UDK. The additional Misc section contains any independent video media that is not directly related to the Developer Series or the casts, but may still be of interest to viewers.

The series features a vast amount of background music too extensive to recall. If you search to identify a specific piece at a specific point, feel free to ask me, but I may not be able to identify it.

All videos are presented in x264 using mp4 AAC for their audio.
