Wasn’t feeling well this week and didn’t get much done, but hoping to finally finish up this little game now this weekend. It’s basically finished already, just need to add a title screen and some tutorial stuff. I think it’s come out pretty well! Might try getting a sponsorship for it or something.

Really like how this game is shaping up! I’ve been working on this on and off since the last Ludum Dare – it’s a lot of fun to make levels for. Think I’ve got enough to tie it all together now.



Decided to work on a little side project this weekend!


Side by side

At a distance is finished! It had it’s d├ębut last Thursday at NYU Game Center’s No Quarter Exhibition in New York, which I attended. Some very minor opening night bugs aside, the game worked out just as I’d hoped it would, with people talking about it over the course of the night and piecing together its logic. I couldn’t be happier about it!

If you wanna hear a bit more, two New York journalists Stephen Totilo of Kotaku and Cassandra Khaw of also attended the exhibition, and were kind enough to write a bit about my game! (There are some spoilers in those links, but nothing too serious.)

Since the exhibition, a lot of people have been asking me when they can play it – honestly, I’m not sure. It’s very much built for this particular setup, with two computers side by side; really, I don’t think it works outside of that arrangement. And I don’t expect a lot of people to go to the trouble of setting that up.

I could just throw it up on the internet now as it is, I suppose, but what I think I’d rather do is take some time to consider how I might expand it, how I might make it accessible to more people. I’m really proud of this game, and I want more people to play it.

In the meantime, if you’d like to play this or any of the other No Quarter games, the exhibition will continue to run in NYU Game Center for the rest of the month. I won’t be there, but if you do go check it out, let me know how you get on!

Oh! And if you happen to be running an event that you’d like to show At a distance at, get in touch!


No Quarter, NYU Gamecenter, 12th May 2011

If you happen to inexplicably find yourself in New York this Thursday, come say hello! I’ll be showing people my new game (which I’ve decided to call “At a distance“) at this year’s No Quarter exhibition in NYU Gamecenter, along with Ramiro Corbetta, Luke O’Connor and Charley Miller.
