Do you like Draculas? And Surfing? We’ve got just the videogame for you!


SURF MONSTER is according to Wikipedia the 10th ever surfing videogame to date and we sure are happy how it came out. You can catch some totally rad waves (and hopefully no bats) here.

Beardo Games would like to give some special thanks to our good buddy Montgomery Word who provided the music. He’s an amazingly talented dude so go check out the rest of his work here.

Our fourth!

Even though we’re in the throes of trying to finiosh up our upcoming release Smooth Operator, we’re taking the time this weekend to participate in our old favorite, Ludum Dare.

So it will be a team of three this time, up from two; Miles (art) and Chris (code) will be joined by Kate (design). Equipment wise we’re not doing anything noteworthy, just Unity 5, Flash for art, and sound from Bfxr, with healthy doses of tacos, pizza, and beer.

So, fingers crossed for a weird topic! Either way we’ll try and make a strange game for everybody!

Here we go, almost

Well guys, we’re throwing out hat in to make an entry in this round of the Dare. It will be pretty refreshing since we’re actively (as in maniacally) in the process of prepping a game for release in the next few months, and it’ll be nice to have a change of pace.

So, Beardo will be meeting up at a local German beer establishment in a few hours to figure out what we’re doing. Code-wise I think we’ll give the newish Unity 2D engine a try. Fingers crossed!


Let’s try one more time

After having a blast last time, I think we’re going to go for it and make another game this weekend. Will it be as weird as last time? Let’s cross our fingers!

Since this will be our second LD, I feel like we’ve got a lot of room to get things right, or at least right-er, than the last time. Or it could all go horribly wrong! Who knows! But either way it will be loads of fun (and a chance to survive on pizza and beer for a weekend)!

Oh, also: I see everyone posting the tools and language they’ll use. Personally, I’m too disorganized and/or too picky about tools to decide on anything before we dream up the game idea. So we’ll see what happens!

Whew! That was a blast! Somehow, we’ve gotten ‘Second Base’ done with a tiny bit of time to spare.

You can go read about it and more importantly find download links over here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-27/?action=preview&uid=25748

It’s our crazy little beer fueled take on the 10 seconds theme, where you have to make it to Second Base 10 times. I’d love to hear anyone’s feedback, and hope you all enjoy and/or are disturbed a little bit!

Click to select a photo, then click on it again to start the level.

Press Left arrow (or A) to extend your tongue. If your tongue’s not out, you’re not kissing, and if you’re not kissing you’re losing point each second.

Press Up or Down arrows (or W and S) to move your tongue up or down, or just leave it be to match how she’s kissing (HINT: the more you match what she does, the better you’re doing in the game).

Press Space to do a SUPER TONGUE KISS, but beware: do it too long and she’ll get sick of it.

Succeed at kissing for long enough and you make it to SECOND BASE!!!

Can’t quite get the hang of it? That’s too bad, cause if too much time passes, she’ll get tired of your lousy kissing skills and you’ll get dumped back out to the level select screen.

The first almost full day of the jam has been a blast. Our theme is “10 second bases” where the goal is for you as the creepy protagonist to make it to second base with ten people. Here’s a quick screen:10 Second Bases

And here’s a Vine we made for your viewing pleasure:


It’s going to be weird

After missing the competition by a day for the past few years, I’ve finally got the weekend lined up to give it a go. Let’s see how it turns out! This will be my first time actually participating.

I probably won’t decide on language or software till the theme gets announced and the brainstorming for game idea is all done.
