Let’s recap! I worked on these eight games in Berlin at BIGJam 2009 as a personal challenge, to practice developing and prototyping faster. Be warned that they’re all very rough and unpolished!

The games are numbered in order of when development on them started. Two of the games (Deterministica and Bullfist) weren’t completed at the jam, and were instead completed in the week after the event.

Game #1: Airplane Adventures
Created on the flight over from Dublin to Berlin.

  1. I’ve played and enjoyed a lot of these games, but I’ve only now realized that they’re by the same person.

  2. The Windows download for Game #6: Nanny ZERO isn´t available anymore. Can you upload it again or don´t you have it anymore?
