HelkeGame’s diary #Post-Mortem

Alright as we said in the last HelkeGames’ diary Azor is now published! We have been working so hard on this project and we are happy to announce the official LD release of Azor!

Official trailer is also released !





Year 2050
Galaxy M510

Captain Joe Park, member of ISLA (International scientific labs association), has been travelling for several months in the deep space… Destination: AZOR LAB.

Nobody knows what happened to the last expedition who visited AZOR… your mission? You must recover the lost files about the “experiment”, remember you promised to your beloved that you would come back home alive… but you must be fast once you landed because oxygen is limited… Remember: You are the only one who can do it, Earth is counting on you!!

After 4 LDs HelkeGames is back with a new project: “Azor”!
I would have liked to make a longer story with other features but… We got only 72 hours so… we did our best! The theme was “Entire game on one screen” and I tried to use one screen for the whole game but I couldn’t show all the rooms in one screen for 2 reasons: it would be a bit slowly to load all the instances in the same room and… Since I tried to make a great story (even if short) I don’t want to spoil it… Players shall finish the game and see the end by themselves!





Thanks everybody for making every LD so awesome! You guys rock!

Now I’m going to play and rate your games! I just wanna relax a bit !

HelkeGames’ diary #5 update Final Day!

Since I don’t want to spoil the whole game here are just other few screenshot!




Lighting system finally debugged!



Another splash screens, just don’t want to spoil everything!

Main Menu … You will see what happens ^^ !



We have a story, we have splash screens, we have AZOR!



Now you have to collect the “files” to leave the planet but always control your oxygen… if you don’t want to…. well to die alone… there will not be anyone to save you, you are so far from the Earth!

New updates and screenshot in the following hours!

HelkeGames’ diary #2 update

It’s been almost 12 hours since the first update… we have been working really hard so we couldn’t make some other posts! This first day I’ve been working on the engine and the entire design. And here is what we have now!


AZOR main menu NOTE: the graphics may be not the final one

AZOR is a space adventure game based in an abandoned laboratory on an extraextrasolar planet… well we will reveal the story later as we are finishing it, it will be awesome… ! So about the theme “Entire Game on one screen”, I followed it but… I can’t actually put the entire game on one screen for 2 reasons: it will be really slow to load and I don’t want to spoil the ending of the game. It actually follows a story and I don’t wanna spoil immediately what will happen during the game… But after all it’s a one screen game!


First Screenshot of the Lab NOTE: graphics may be not the final one

This is the first screenshot of AZOR laboratory, as you can see you have limited resources as OXYGEN, you have to keep control on it to finish the game and… many other features will come… and we will reveal them in the following updates. Now it’s Midnight! So….. I go to sleep, to recharge energies for tomorrow as I will finish AZOR! (I think my team mate is now working on music, we made the first song together this afternoon). So Good Luck to Everyone!

Stay tuned on HELKEGAMES!

This will be the title of our game… I have to admit that I don’t really like the theme… because if you want to make a huge and creative game with a nice story you can’t actually use only one screen… I’ll try to follow the theme as I can though!

After a night (now it’s morning in Europe) of brainstorming I finally came up with an awesome concept… I already made the story and the whole design so… Stay tuned later for all the progresses and new updates!


Got tons of notes !

Actually my TeamMate already made splash screens for the game… so I will post it now!

In the last post I didn’t mentioned all my tools because I still didn’t know well what I would have chosen but… here we are!

In this year and a half I’ve been improving my korean and chinese skills as well so… hahah


  • GML


  • Photoshop
  • GraphicsGale


  • Reaper
  • FL Studio Producer Edition 2011
  • SFXR


  • Just something to keep me awake…. ANYTHING! ahah

Sadly HelkeGames is based in Europe so… I will start tomorrow morning, I have to work fast!
So I have to wish you good luck now! I WILL BE READY AS I WAKE UP ^^

Stay tuned tomorrow for every update from HELKEGAMES!

HelkeGames is back again!

HelkeGames is back again after the awesome Ludum Dare 26 (I know, i couldn’t join the last Ludum Dares because I’ve been so busy… I couldn’t update my profile description as well so…. I’m still 16? ahahah). In fact I posted “I’m in” so late because I still didn’t know if I would have had enough time on this weekend… But fortunately I got free time so… I’m ready for a sleepless weekend!


During this year and a half(?) I’ve been improving my coding skills and… I think I’m ready to do much better than my first LD! As the last Ludum Dare I will be lonely and… only my teammate will provide for making the soundtrack of the whole game.
I got a lot of ideas even if, well, I could bet snowman theme will win?! Ahahah

I will try to do my best in every category and to finish the game within 72 hours since i will join Jam.

Many things happened since my last LD (love and passions ? ahahah) and i think more people now join the competition so… it will be more awesome and interesting!

As everyone is usual to do, I’m going to post my tools:

  • Java (Eclipse IDE) or well maybe GML
  • Graphics Gale (Art)
  • Fl Studio producer edition 2011
  • And a lot of tea and coffee (I prefer tea ahahah)

I hope to make a game that everyone will love… Because well… that’s my (and I think also of everyone who is a game developer) aim!

Good Luck to everyone! Let’s have some fun! 파이팅 !
