My first attempt at a party game!

Posted by
Wednesday, July 13th, 2016 9:35 pm

I’ve been having trouble finishing projects lately so I decided to do something simple. I made a small two player party game called SmackDown which blends platforming mechanics with competitive play. I would highly recommend grabbing a friend and giving this game a whirl! It’s a really simple concept but I got some good learning out of it so i’m grateful, if you have any advise/criticism I would love to hear it. Cheers!

Ludum Dare Jam 35 Reflections and Thoughts

Friday, April 22nd, 2016 9:54 pm

At long last the jam is over and the game is finished (well, mostly at least xD). This was my third attempt at Ludum Dare and my first time successfully finishing. I have finished other game jams in the past but the fact that I had failed two times before made me want to try again. I worked with a friend of mine who did the animation and helped with design while I worked on art, level design, and code. Upon hearing that the theme was going to be shapeshift I immediately got to work brainstorming ideas and my friend came up with a very interesting idea for a shapeshifting platformer.

I got to work prototyping and soon came up with some interesting mechanics. My next task was the artwork, and while art is definitely not one of my strengths I was pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I didn’t manage my time very well for the jam so I ended up spending most of my time on prototyping and art. I didn’t have much time to design levels so the game is very short but it has some interesting mechanics and stylistic choices. I learned a ton from this jam and i’m also happy to say that I’ve finally completed a Ludum Dare Jam successfully. I plan on updating this game in the future to add more levels and polish to it. Thanks for everything Ludum Dare I had a blast!

It’s day 2 (for me at least xD) and I’ve been doing a lot of work on the atmosphere and the game environment. It’s looking pretty good so far (forgive my poor tiling) !

I got started a little late but i’m still chugging along. I have a lot of the prototyping done and I’m working on some cool art. Heres some of the character art that I’ve slapped together:

My Entry to the IndiesVsGamers Jam!

Monday, July 20th, 2015 10:18 pm

I decided to participate in the IndiesVsGamers Jam recently and I was very excited because I missed last years big jam on GameJolt (IndiesVsPewDiePie). One of the requirements was that your game had to use GameJolt scoreboards which was hard for me to implement because I had never used it before but ended up being worth it in the end. I created an endless runner called Rooftops. It was a very enjoyable experience for me and I learned a ton as a result of this jam! I think my game turned out pretty well and i’m excited to see where the community decides to rank it! You can check it out Here if you want to :)
