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.
Play Online (Newgrounds) (Original Post)
sumouse and KOZACHOK are twin games for two players.
Download sumouse (Windows) (Original Post)

Going Forward is a game inspired by a job I had after college.

[…] distractionware: 2010 Juego flash Colección “Al comienzo del aÁ±o, quemado después de trabajar seis meses en VVVVVV, decidí que quería intentar hacer un juego de un mes para el resto del aÁ±o. Un par de estos juegos llegó a ser muy interesante, así que en vez de enterrar en el blog pensé en tomar algunas de minijuegos mi favorito de todo el aÁ±o, y agruparlos juntos en la barra lateral “.

    Can I ask you how do you render your pixelated fonts? Wrote your own “bitmap” font renderer or something?

    Can I ask Terry a question?
    If you want to keep it a mystery, that’s fine.

    What does memrrtiks, suashem mean?
