#GBjam, Game Development and Work Updates

I’m back and ready to update everyone on what’s been happening since I went to Japan last month, which was an awesome holiday where I got to go to the cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and Sendai, with highlights including seeing foxes at the Zao Fox Village, walk around Akihabara’s arcades, game and electronic stores, dressing up as a Samurai, going to the Ghibli Museum and Nintendo’s Old Headquarters! Despite being in very humid weather, and both my sister and I carrying our bags from hostel to guest house to hostel almost every night, we were able to see so much and yet miss out on quite a lot. We talked with other travellers and heard about seeing Mt Fuji and Sumo Wrestling in Nagano among others, but I think I can see them another time.

But only a few weeks after I got back, I was out again for a week in Ireland…which is why the longer than normal absence. I got to see some of the big towns and cities from Cork to Dublin, as well as a lot of countryside, however it did help bring inspiration for a game I recently made.
Welcome to Kilkenny Pub Brawl!

PuzzleScript: Make Puzzle Games in a Flash (…well HTML5 at least)

Hey everyone! Just thought you should try out PuzzleScript, it’s a neat little Puzzle Game HTML5 engine with a very easy to use scripting functionality with an editor and a debugger to help you make a neat puzzle game.

I found out about it on Reddit and a few of my friends tried it out, and after a few hours of playing around I came up with this: Power of Two

Try it out here, and have some fun making puzzle games!

BOOM: Fireworks Defence Unit is Online!

Yes everyone! BOOM: Fireworks Defence Unit is online on Newgrounds.com and you can play it now right here!

Go ahead and play, make sure you rate and/or review the game, all opinions will help improve the game. The Windows 8 release is currently through the submission process, so hopefully it will be on the store soon. The Windows Phone version is going to be delayed due to some technical issues with the port.

I’d also like to mention Sam Denvir, my artist for the game, he did a great job and you can follow his blog here.

Also, Lyserdigi, he made the music for the game, and he’s released the full versions of both tracks, which can be accessed here and here.

Hope you all enjoy!!

Construct2 GameJam Game Announcement!

Hey guys, as I mentioned in my last post on the Unity Hackathon, I’m making a game for the Construct2 GameJam on Newgrounds. I can officially announce some information of the game!

So here it is!

The game sets you the task of defending a city from a fireworks display, sabotaged to act as homing missiles to kill all the citizens below. The game uses touch control to detonate the fireworks before they hit the ground, and power ups to help you as the amount of fireworks pile up to an enormous amount!

Good news is that most of the game is already finished and working. Bad news is that at the moment, I have no music, sound effects are generated from DrPetter’s SFXR and the only artwork I have are temporary stuff I’ve drawn, and I’m not a great artist.  What I’d like is artwork and animation, as well as music to make the game look as great as possible. Fortunately, I have a whole month to get it sorted, but not without someone or some people willing to contribute to this game.

Since it is more of a hobbyist project, I cannot offer payment, but the game will be released on Newgrounds.com, a large and popular community for art, animation and music, and will also be on Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, meaning you can have a digitally released title on both PC and phone on your portfolio!

I’ve currently put out posts on both the Scirra Forums and Newground’s Collabinator, but if you or anyone you know is interested, let me know in the comments here, message me on the Facebook Page or Twitter
