Very happy to have overcome the default css and implemented a nice dramatic font for the Infernal language text.

This is too much fun to write

First time really using Twine 2

Saturday, April 16th, 2016 4:58 am

I did a short experiment in Twine 2 last year, but this is my first time really getting stuck in and using some of the features built into the Harlowe theme. I’m very impressed and excited!

My dancers don’t have music, but I’m going to stop here. Play Mrazish!


Tasl #7: Design a level

As you play you unlock more and more dancers, and then you go dance with them to unlock drinks!


Vomiting hearts

Saturday, April 27th, 2013 8:03 pm

This gaudy monstrosity that I am attempting to pass off as a game actually begins as a white, minimalist space. Then you eat strawberries and potatoes and vomit hearts everywhere while your boyfriend pretties up with rainbow eyelashes.

Task #1: tool chosen

I’m using Construct 2 for this. I think. I’m using this tutorial as some reassuring hand holding.

I was reading Rise of the Videogame Zinesters this week and I put together this gaudy image of Anna Anthropy’s tasklist. A simple guide to 48 hours of blitzing minimalism!

My first Ludum Dare

Thursday, April 25th, 2013 11:27 am

I’m getting to grips with game development and lately jams like this have helped me to actually get stuff done.

I’m not yet sure what tools I’m going to use. I like Unity but it’s hard and I’m very slow with it. Construct 2 comes recommended so it is likely that I will take advantage of the ludum deal discount on that if the theme suits. For some themes I might find that I’d rather make something with Twine, or if I’m going to go super abstract and geometric then I’ll use Processing.

I’ve been following the theme voting with bated breath. Some of the leading themes I love and I’m really hoping I can make one of the game ideas I have for them!
