Adventures with the Scriptable Render Pipeline

Online event

Hi BUG! This month we're excited to be joined by Mark Mayers, who will be discussing his work on developing a Custom Scriptable Render Pipeline for the game Desolus.

About the Talk
Take a deep dive into the various graphics programming and shader techniques which contribute to the unique gameplay and visual style of Desolus. The talk includes an overview of the game's lighting, shadows, particles, reflections, and post-processing, as well as a look at effects such as the game's portals and black holes. Discover how the use of Scriptable Render Pipeline can help graphics programmers achieve advanced effects which may be impossible to create in Unity's own Universal or High Definition Render Pipelines.

About the Speaker
Mark Mayers is a game designer creating Desolus, an atmospheric puzzle game where you explore a city of Gothic architecture torn between multiple universes. Mark has also worked as a gameplay and graphics programmer on titles such as Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye, and Manifold Garden. Although he currently resides in Seattle, he is a Bostonian at heart and an active member of the Boston Independent Games community.


We have made the decision to virtualize all our events for the foreseeable future. We will continue to have our usual monthly lectures, but we will not be hosting any in-person events at the CIC. Instead we’ll be streaming all our presentations on twitch over at https://twitch.tv/bostonunitygroup

We intend to get things back to normal as soon as possible, and look forward to better days. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email us at [masked].
By attending or participating in BUG events, you agree to abide by our safe-space policy (https://tinyurl.com/yablpctf). If you feel you are unable to, please do not attend or participate.
Thanks to our sponsors! Unity and The CIC Cambridge are generously sponsoring our meetup this month.

See you there!
Chris, Elliott, & Graham
