Hi there! I'm Ben, a great fan of various games indie or not, and owner of Pixelaided (patent not pending). I'm not as experienced as a WHOLE lot others I know, but I have enough skills to create a game people would enjoy. Maybe not a winning game, but a fun one.

Help with music?

Saturday, October 4th, 2014 5:16 pm

I’m having trouble with making music. Before when I used to make music, it was easy, as I didn’t know much about good music and as long as it sounded fine I was okay with it. Now, I’m getting myself braindead trying to make up music with my OCD kicking in. Whenever I even make a small beat, I can never make up anything good to go with it, as LMMS doesn’t have much to offer. So, I move to Anvil Studio. It made some of my FAVORITE music (Including in An Untitled Story and Generic Man) so I decided to give it a try. It has lots of very good high-quality instruments, and is very versatile. A couple problems though:

1) I have no idea how to import my own instruments

2) The process of making music in it is very long and neck-aching.

I have tried FL Studio, but the free version had little to no to offer, and I’m trying to stay on a budget of, well, 0.00$.

I look at Famitracker, and it can make some very nice making music! (One of my favorites being Rushjet) But it is really confusing to make different sounds that I want, and in the period of a month I can’t cram in learning the 8-bit sound system whilst making a game and trying to get done school!

I would just make the game first and use that as inspiration for the music, but I’ve tried that 2-3 times already, and I just couldn’t make the right tune for the game! I don’t want a mining game with puzzle music!

I feel like all my ideas are drained, and it’s hard for me to make even videos now!

Does anyone have any tips on what I should do?

Help! Will I be able to participate?

Okay, so I want to do the jam this weekend. Since I’m in America, the ludum dare starts tonight at 8PM. The day after, me and my family are doing a huge trip to goto another state where my cousins are for a week, and the drive will begin super early in the morning and last about all day. The next day, we’ll be busy unpacking more and spending time with eachother. Will I be able to shift the ludum dare acouple days late? I’ve been waiting 3-4 months for this!

Lucky Timing Much!

I was just sitting around thinking about making a new game, then I thought “Hmm, when’s the next ludum dare?” I checked and it turned out it was in 10 minutes. Wow. I’m really pumped.

Explorer Run: Updates

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014 7:17 pm

Well, day 1 was REALLY successful! I got tons of mechanics in!

If you didn’t know, I’m basing my game off of temple run.

The reason I’m making levels is:

1) It wouldn’t be that fun walking infinitely in the jungle.

2) I’m OCD and love games with levels in them

So I leave you with 2 pictures of 2 levels. Enjoy!

Hey guys, I’m going to demake Temple Run. Here’s a preview of the character:


Sorry if it might be a little small 😛

Darnit! Missed Mini LD#48

Saturday, January 11th, 2014 9:09 pm

Well, its 11:07 PM on the 11th here, and I just noticed that theres a mini LD going on at the moment!

I would’ve totally been in it!

Would I be able to get 24 hours extra?

EDIT: Unless of course, our time zones are different and it just started a couple hours ago. USEastern time here.

I’m exiting the Shark Jam…

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013 11:10 am

I have too much real life stuff going on at the moment, and I’ve already lost about a day.

I’ll have to walk out of this one, guys…

Shark Frenzy!

Friday, November 1st, 2013 5:17 am

I hope everyone’s ready, because november’s upon us, and the shark jam is right next to it!

Im joining the Shark Jammin Jam!

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013 5:47 pm

I mind as well… The more the merrier!

I’m not sure if I’ll be jamming with anyone, but my stuff:

Language: GML (Game maker 8 Pro)

Graphics: Paint.net, maybe Photoshop, Game Maker

Audio: Audicity, LMMS, sfxr, any program I can get my hands onto

Drink: Lemonade, maybe soda (Cola :P)


Initial goal… Find out how to make some more Water Physics, just because every game MUST have water, right?


My Entry: Glutun’s Big Adventure

Sunday, August 25th, 2013 5:24 pm

It’s not the best game, but I like it. It’s a cool platformer. 😀

I though the compo was about to end, and i was freaking out… and then I realized…

“1 hour till compo ends”

I was so relieved, but enough of that.

Download: Wait till the compo’s done 😛

Once in game, on the menu click the yellow button for the plot (It says plot on it). You’ll get the game so much more.

Omegah its a cave


I knew the cave was a bad idea…

Jungle… Underground jungle?

I don’t think that liquid at the bottom is water OR blood…

Dosage of Distraction

Every now and then I have to take my DOD (dosage of distraction) with my cats 😛

Why are we taking the time to write these posts?

Not much progress…

Saturday, August 24th, 2013 6:49 am

I’m still stuck on music, but I’ve made a game over screen, etc.

The first room of my game… I’m going AUS style :P

The second room… this leads to a quite tedious level :P


This is just the start of the game. Soon I’ll add a menu :)


Saturday, August 24th, 2013 4:53 am

Can anyone please help? I can’t find any decent music generating program! I’ve tried Famitracker and stuff, but I just can’t get the fast paced music I want! Can anyone please help? I’ve tried cgMusic and alot of other things…

And so the race is on!

Friday, August 23rd, 2013 7:50 pm

Dang, I was hoping it wouldn’t be Ten Seconds… Of all the things… Well, whatever.

ATM it’s 10:48PM where I live, so I’ll sign off for bed at 11.

I’ll need my strength tomorrow!Also, it was kinda annoying how the LD started at 8:00PM or so…

Changing my submission a little…

Friday, August 23rd, 2013 12:00 pm

I’ve decided that in order to make a good game that not only the public, but I would enjoy, I will have to change.

  • Language: GameMaker
  • Graphics: Game Maker (built in sprite maker), Paint, Paint.NET
  • Audio: sfxr, Possibly Audacity, Maybe my voice recordings, I might try BFXR
  • Drinks: Water, possibly Lemonade =)

Also, can I use music from the following?

Other Videogames (IE Pokemon ETC)

Online Album (IE Cor Metallum, Cavestory, ETC)

Because I can’t find a descent music maker that makes music of my liking.
