Experiment 12


Ahhhh I’ve had to keep quiet about this for ages

Last month I took part in a chain game, which has come to be known as Experiment 12. I’m so happy with how it all came together – I think the final thing is incredibly cool, something bigger than the sum of its parts.

All the chapters were made on a game jam timescale – everyone had just three days for their part.

Since I proposed the project, I ended up going first – which was cool in some ways, but I think I’d prefer to start further in if we ever did something like this again.

Anwyay, hope you enjoy it!

2012 miscellany

I like the idea of starting fresh each year – ever since I went full time indie five years ago, I’ve kept annual pages on the sidebar of my blog of the creations I’m happiest with. I think it’s creatively healthy to start fresh, bury old things away, prepare for new things.

2012, mostly, is defined for me by Super Hexagon, a game I started this year. Which is odd, because when this year started, I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to work on anything new at all. Things didn’t work out that way. My plans never do, apparently. I think I’m ok with that.

Where that feeling was coming from, though, was a desire to work on less small, incidental things. To take more control of my work, to really focus on something bigger, something more ambitious. That’s something I actually did this year – as well as making Super Hexagon, I worked long stretches on several other projects – a roguelike, an FPS, an RPG.

As a result, I released very few smaller games this year. There were a few things I was sorta happy with, though, so I want to make a place for them, in this small collection:

harmonilr_icon Harmonilr is a puzzle game inspired by the Towlr approach to puzzle design.

Hexagon

This weekend is Pirate Kart V, a very special creative endeavour where people from all over the world attempt to make as many games as possible in 48 hours. (We’re already up to 363!)

I started this little game this morning, intending it as a warm up – but it got a little bit out of hand…

Hero’s Adventure

Klik of the Month 50 is a special occasion, and I wanted to make something special for it: so, I finished my first ever RPG! It ended up taking most of the day, many hours beyond the two hours allotted. It reuses a lot of assets from one of my many previous failed jam RPGs.

Thanks to Josh Whelchel and Kevin MacLeod for the music!

American Dream

This is one of two games I worked on at last weekend’s big game jam here in Cambridge – it’s a collaboration with Stephen Lavelle, Jasper Byrne and Tom Morgan-Jones.

Play it here!

It’s kinda cool to see this finished, because I’ve had it hanging around in one form or another since last summer. Originally it was a KOTM game about an assassin who spent all his money on designer furniture, and it was called “Killing Spree”. (It was the game about interior decorating I was referring to here)

(As for the other jam game I worked on last weekend, I’ll talk about it very soon! It’s been a while since I posted anything, so I’ll try to catchup this weekend.)

2010 Minigame Collection

At the start of the year, burnt out after working six months on VVVVVV, I decided I wanted to try making a game a month for the rest of the year. That didn’t really work for me; I scrapped that approach in February, and I don’t think it’s something I’m likely to try next year either. Nevertheless, it’s been a very busy (if not productive) year for me – after counting up all the relevant folders on my hard disk, it appears I’ve worked on 54 games this year (so far!). Three of those I actually finished, and liked enough to add to the sidebar. Just over twenty I finished enough to post as “minigames”.

I think a couple of these games ended up being pretty interesting, so rather than bury them in the blog I thought I’d take a few of my favourite minigames from throughout the year, and bundle them together on the sidebar. Here they are:

N.O.T.T.U.B. is a multiplayer game for as many players as you can find.
