I'm working on games and stuff!
You'll hear about what I'm working on real soon I promise.
Retiring a very slimeful sketchbook! Hope I get to work on that game in some form or another.
Working on animations for an undisclosed game, let's call it Baroque for now :)
(Yes, I know there's actually an RPG called Baroque, bla bla bla)
Spent the past week-end working with Dave Hill (who works at Capy, previously at Queasy Games) on a little game we like to call INVASION OF THE BRAIN-SUCKING BRAINS. The game was completed in less than 72 hours during the TOJAM, Toronto's gigantic yearly game jam.
It's a 4-player competitive trivia action game(?!?), in which players play as little alien space brains, sent by the Motherbrain to collect the juicy brains of smart people. The Motherbrain broadcasts a trivia question like "STAR WARS CHARACTERS" into a crowd of humans, and you must try to zap the smart humans who speak a correct answer.
The great Ryan Roth (Starseed Pilgrim, The Yawhg) created music and sound effects for the game - a techno-martian track and weird simish blurbs for the humans, also a lovely ZAAAPPP-SPLORRRKCH sound for the titular brain-sucking. Amazing stuff, really!
We're planning to add content and fix a couple things in the coming weeks.
Here's a little 6-second preview :)
This week's selection shows some love for pixel art, with fourteen games in development showing true skill with the pixel brush! We have Chasm in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign, Tale of the Stolen Rainbow creating an epic Zelda-like adventure with minimalist black and white pixels, and then there's The Bitter End.. oh wait, it seems to have been made in Hexels!
I'd also like to point out that Dungeon Hearts, a puzzler for the quick mind, has finally been released on the App Store, after over two years of thorough devlogs on the TIGSource Forums. You should probably read their entries, especially if you enjoy the soundtrack - there's a freebie in there somewhere!
Games: Dungeon Hearts, Upthere, Meta4, GetOff, Grotto Quest, Pipeworks, Sprout, Olav and the Flute, Solstice, Tale of the Stolen Rainbow, The Bitter End, Chasm, Dying Sun, Sky Tourist, Trash TV, Super Punchball, The Dungeoning, Grabbyhands
We're planning to give out Super Punchball builds to the Sportsfriends backers real soon! In the meantime, take a look at a fake screenshot!
