Here’s progress after Day 2. I’ll put in another 4 hours before the deadline to clean up the enemies and add some polish.

Play It
You can play the current build here (Flash):
I Wanna Be the Fishy

Summary: You’re a lost fish looking to find your way back to your school. Collect the bubbles to track them down. Goal is to get to the end screen as fast as possible.

Here’s what I have after 6 hours. The goal is to collect your fellow fish to bring them back to school.

And, snacks…

BTW, if you want to hang out and watch, I’m broadcasting live.


Will start up again tomorrow around 2pm Pacific.

My entry is up!

Play Pee Wee Pirates


Between this and Game-in-a-Day, I’ve done this kind of weekend “game jam” thing probably 10 times now (yikes). But this is the first time in a couple of years, so I was a bit rusty going in. I also decided at the last minute to go with an alpha-quality development framework that had some serious limitations.

Despite all that, though, it was fun to work on, and I’m pretty satisfied with it. Now I’m just looking forward to seeing what everyone else came up with. =)

Thanks to everyone who organized the event!

So, yeah, I’m going with a pirate theme. A bit overdone maybe, but it should still be fun to work on.  Also, that’s just the working title. =)

Time for bed.

Food and… Idea

Food for the weekend, or at least until tomorrow night.

  • Two parts caffeine, one part “juice” (also coffee, not shown)
  • Turkey samwich on rye (was tasty)
  • Hawaiian Punch — omg Hawaii is islands!!!

Also, I finally know the direction I’m going, but I’ll wait until I actually have something to show.

Good luck, everyone!

The Cage - Standing Desk

Here’s my workspace pic. It’s a standing desk I made out of a standard rack shelving unit.

Yes, I’m so hard core, I make games standing up.

Anyway, time to get food…
