    Creepy Smiley Faces and a Green Chile Cheeseburger

    So, my placeholder monster graphics are definitely creeping me out.

    Almost makes me want to keep them…

    In addition to making creepy placeholder graphics, we also made this Green Chile Cheeseburger.

    It was delicious.

    Dinner and a Jam

    I haven’t done a Ludum Dare for a bit, so I’m going to give it a go this weekend.

    Going for the Jam this time because:

    - I’m old and can’t pull all-nighters.
    - My lovely wife can help.
    - I’ll have time for nice dinners like tonight’s Soondubu Jjigae.

    Congrats to everyone who finished a game today for LD24!

    I crashed and burned early this time round…

    On a positive note, though, I just found out that my LD22 entry, “Quiet, Please!” went live tonight in the iOS App Store.

    If you look back at my journal history, you can see the evolution of “Quiet, Please!” from the initial Ludum Dare entry, to the post-compo version, to an Xbox Indie Games release and then to Android.

    I want to encourage people who have created games in the last 48 hours to not just leave it at that.

    Put some more work in. Expand the game. Polish it. Release it to a wider audience.

    You might just find that there is an audience for your game outside of the Ludum Dare community.

    Making a game in 48 hours is hard – so if you do end up coming out of it with a game on your hands, considering moving forward with it.

    So far I have come up with the beginnings of a game idea, and this fish curry:

    So far, so good…

    My LD22 entry, “Quiet, Please!”, is now out on Android

    “Quiet, Please!”, the game that grew out of my LD22 entry is now available on Android devices. I released it last Thursday, and so far it is doing well.

    If you want to check it out, here are the marketplace links:

    It is also available on Xbox and Windows Phone.

    “Quiet, Please!” Released on Xbox Indie Games

    An expanded version of the little adventure game I made for LD22 just came out on Xbox Indie Games.

    I’ve added new areas, puzzles and polish since the original Ludum Dare version, but I’m still amazed at how much of the core gameplay came together in that one weekend. I’m hoping that LD23 will be as productive for me as LD22 was!

    If you are interested, you can find “Quiet, Please!” here in the Xbox Marketplace. I also released a version for Windows Phone a while back.

    Here are a few screenshots from the final version of the game:

    “Quiet, Please!” Post Compo Version

    Since making “Quiet, Please!” for Ludum Dare 22, I’ve taken some time to improve on it and add additional content. I was really happy with what I was able to accomplish in the 48hr time period, but I had a lot of ideas that I was not able to get to.

    The biggest criticism of the compo version was its length. This updated version has new areas, new and improved puzzles, an intro and a lot more sound and art assets.

    The new version of “Quiet, Please!” can be played in a web browser (Unity) here:

    The original, 48hr entry is here.

    Here are a few screenshots from the new version of the game:

    During the Dare weekend, I made a little adventure game engine.

    In the course of doing so, I also went about making a little adventure game about a girl that just wants some peace and quiet.

    Play the Web version.

    Web version of Ascent of Kings now available

    It wasn’t pretty, but I managed to shoehorn my 2D game engine on top of Unity3D.

    The process was ugly, but the result is better than I could have hoped – the game looks and runs almost exactly the same as the Windows version (bugs and all – I didn’t make any changes). Unlike other web platforms I’ve tried that have framerate issues (I’m looking at you, Flash), it runs butter-smooth.

    So, Mac users and those averse to downloading .zip files can now give Ascent of Kings a try.

    Had a great, if exhausting time this weekend. I’m really happy with how the game came out – it is a complete, if fairly short, platform adventure.

    Looking forward to checking out everyone else’s games!

    I just finished adding a vine climbing mechanic that is working pretty well.

    Now I need to hunker down in level-editing mode to get this game done.

    Making good progress, fueled by a nice breakfast.

    And a pork butt went on the smoker first thing this morning, so I’m looking forward to dinner.

    Going Underground

    Although my main theme is ascending a mountain, I’m starting out with some underground sections.

    Here, our hero has found the first of his brothers and gets his first powerup.

    Meme officially in game…
