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.
Working on the intro cutscene. The player is the little guy on the left.

While I haven’t yet gotten around to working more on my LD19 entry, Observatory, in the spirit of LD48 I took a few days after the compo and prototyped a little game in flash.
I thought the idea had promise, so I’ve been working on a Windows version of the game. The first section is now pretty much complete:
I just released an alpha version that you can download here.
Everyone who gives me feedback on the game gets their name in the playable credits, so give it a try and let me know what you think!
If you so desire, you can try the original flash version here.
Oh, and I’m planning on participating in LD20 – probably using the framework I developed for this game.
