I’m in!

I have a new computer on the way though that if it arrives during the weekend it might turn my entry into a way smaller one.

But I’m doing something!

Unity/Maya LT/HTC Vive

It’ll obviously be built on OpenVR so I’ll make it work with Rift/Touch too.

Cavey! It’s here!

It’s getting there!

Just a few more things to add.

Multiplayer works! Need to do Audio. And add more craftables. :)

Doing the Jam so should have enough time for polish too! 😀

Progress so far!

Hey! This time around I’m doing another VR game with the HTC Vive! 😀

Here’s my progress in 3 tweets:

My game’s done! It’s HTC Vive only so probably won’t get enough votes to actually be ranked, but hey! It was SO FUN to work on! 😀


Still need a name for this, too.

Everyone should buy an HTC Vive if only for Ludum Dare.

Seriously guys, do it!

Having A LOT of fun with this!

This is my first time participating in Ludum Dare using my HTC Vive and it’s *so good* you guys!

Here’s a lengthy gif.

I’m in for the 6th time!

Will have to see if I go for 2D or 3D.

Unity/PyxelEdit/MayaLT :)

(Also I *might* do a small thing for the Mini LD.)

Made a game for Duplicade!

We want you to make one (or more) short, player vs. player games, 30 seconds, win or lose, just like last year’s BARFCADE, but this year, we want you to populate the outlaw flea markets of our minds with knockoffs and bootlegs of other games that are just weird enough to not get you sued.

Quote from the jam site on itch.io.

This jam was for local 2-player-one-keyboard versus games only, with pre-specified controls!

You can probably guess which game I picked!



Try and rate my game here, if you have a buddy around:



It’s also available on Gamejolt if that’s more your thing, here:



And now I think I’ll whip something together for MiniLD #62 while I still have the time! 😀

Hyped for LD33!

I’m definitely in!

Probably gonna do the Jam again because I like the extra time 😀

Did a thing for Indies VS Gamers!

In case you’re not following me on Twitter (Which you totally should!) I participated in GameJolt’s Indies VS Gamers jam.

Here’s some cool gifs





It’s called SpaceTeam ZED, click here to go to the GameJolt page.

It features the excellent voice acting of Elijah Lucian & his studio “Voice Acting Power Squad”.

This was my first game with proper dialog and voiceacting, so I suppose it’d fit the MiniLD of this month too, which I will submit it to if GameJolt gives me the OK for it.

Be sure to rate my game if you’ve played it, and let me know what you thought of it!

LD32 vs MiniLD59

So I was looking at my stats for my MiniLD game and comparing them to my regular LD game, something felt weird about this:

Click to go to itch.io page! (This was posted early in the day so the views/downloads for today are comparatively low.)


ss (2015-05-22 at 11.10.56)

Click to go to itch.io page!


My miniLD game has way less time put into it overall, I spent 24-ish hours on it, while my LD32 game had around 30-36 hours put into it, and I won’t even get voting results for my MiniLD game. :(

Is there any way the MiniLDs could get some form of voting on them too? I feel like I’m missing out on stats…

My “I’m super broke” sale!

Hey guys! I’m super broke, so I put up one of my games, coincidentally spawned from a miniLD game I made, for sale on itch.io!

You can also buy it with its assets in a bundle and save some money!

Any support would be greatly appreciated! 😀
