Azura Sun's one-man "team". Mainly a programmer, but I do other things as well. I'm also involved in homebrew for old systems and demoscene. I'm currently working on Azura Sun's first commercial game, Sol.

Sorry, I don't give away my personal contact info unless it's somebody I already know :)

In my case I had a good reason, my GPU had fried and the only other one at hand couldn 't even do shaders so I decided to go with a software renderer instead, but I didn 't trust it to scale to 1920x1080 so I used low resolution as ...

Wait, what format does Shovel Knight use for music In Sol I made the engine load the entire OGG files into RAM and decode from there because I didn 't trust the hard disk to be fast enough, but truth to be said I never even tried streaming from hard ...
