017 - Fraculation Studios

This episode delivers a unique insight as wechat with Dan from Fraculation Studios. With inspiration drawn from the fractalizing nature of mushrooms and cotton candy trees, Dan reveals the nitty-gritty of virtual plant genetics and how it was translated into an immersive gaming experience.

We dig deep into the world of virtual botany, discussing how different genetic codes can be unlocked by players to create unique plant-based towers. Dan details his creative journey in developing a system that translates genetic codes into 3D plants, adding an element of realism to this fantastical world. We also touch on the exciting potential of integrating weather variables and the challenges faced during the game development process.

But it's not all science and tech. We switch gears to PC building and graphics card options. With the recent release of NVIDIA's 16 gigabyte RTX 4060 ti graphics card, we weigh in on the importance of speed versus capacity for a GPU. As we wrap up, we ponder on the return of favorite characters in the new Mortal Kombat DLC and give you a glimpse into what our guests get up to when they're not coding or gaming. Whether you're into games, gardening, or genetics, we've got it all covered in this episode. Tune in for a dose of tech-talk, PC jargon, and a dash of Mortal Kombat.
