About MrPhil (twitter: @xMrPhil)

I make video slot games by day and indie games by night. I dream of one day making indie games full time, but it might take a while because I'm highly prone to procrastination.

Screen Shot 1

It doesn’t look like much, but I wrote it all from scratch using SDL2 and C/C++.  Features so far:

  • Handle Input from Mouse, Keyboard, and Controllers
  • Hardware Accelerated, Rectangle Sprites
  • Loading images from disk
  • Delta time calculated movement
  • Box Colliders (basic, just the sprite Rectangle)

I’m having a problem getting SDL2’s Renderer to work. So I’m behind.  Oh well, that’s Ludum Dare for ya!

But, here’s some pics:

Text Adventure gamejam from afar with IGDA DC

The DC chapter of IGDA is doing a Text Adventure gamejam this weekend at the Westwood college:http://sjklevine.com/igda_dc/textjam/

I no longer live in DC, but I thought I’d jam along with them!  If you want to join me, I setup a Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/611843362194465/

An alternative for those who think text games might be too boring, and want a meatier game experience while still fitting the theme of the jam, would be to try an “Idle” game:

The maze is operational, has a minimum look, and you can walk around in it.

I have a very busy weekend, but 26 is my favorite number.  So, I’m going to squeeze in a maze game.  I’m using Unity3D so it should not take too many hours.

I think this project needs some love!

Go to Kickstarter and make sure you aren’t missing out.

There’s a working demo you can download too: Spine Demo.

The Wall

Sleep #2

Sleep #2 – I doubt I truly fell asleep in 0 minutes.

Breakfast #2

Breakfast #2 – Mini-Wheats and Iced Tea.

I’ve hit the wall.  I’ve got a bug I can’t figure out and too much to finish in order for the game to be playable.  Not sure how to change course and finish something playable.  It is very frustrating.  I don’t want to quit but I also don’t want to waste my time.
