I've launched a new Youtube series, Math for Game Developers. Each week I'll be showing how to solve a new problem in game development using math, and I'll be building up a math toolkit that you can use to solve any game dev problem.

1. Moving a character with vectors: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKCF8A3XGxQ
2. More moving characters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNaxtPTMqSo
3. Finding the distance between two characters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk-RyG0KR_I
4. Fast way to compare distances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxmGxkhhluU
5. Speeding up and slowing down characters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3mbQrLu7E8

This is very basic stuff, just showing the basics of vector maths, but eventually I'll be progressing to explaining the math behind more advanced things. I'm very excited about this series because it focuses on solving specific problems that come up in game dev all the time. When I was just learning game development I couldn't be bothered to learn any math unless it helped me in some way, so every video I make solves a problem.

I hope to help out people who are just starting their game dev career so please let me know if I can improve the videos (other than the low quality audio, a problem I'm working on) or if you didn't understand something Posted Image
