Jottobots Now Available!

Jottobots Now Available!

YEAH! After three years hiding from the public, Jottobots is now available! The game only costs a single US dollar to enjoy for an eternity, DRM free.

Jottobots is a miniature exploration platformer, or a mini-metroidvania if you prefer. You start with five minutes on the clock to rack up as many points as you can through blowing up enemies, finding power ups, and stumbling across secret passage ways. Most of the art was done by J. Otto Seibold, and I did the programming, and some additional artwork as well. On the audio side, Josh Whelchel handled the music and Power Up Audio helped out with some sound mixing and a few sound effects.

I've now officially released three games in 2012! Offspring Fling!, Snapshot, and Jottobots... but I'm not finished! I made a promise to myself that before GDC 2012 I would release 5 games, so I have to figure out which two are next.

Oh and Snapshot is currently 50% off on Steam for just $4.99! Madness. Check it out!

Jottobots Releasing Soon!

Jottobots Releasing Soon!

Hey internet. I've had this project sitting around since about 2009 called Jottobots. It was originally a game created for the ARTxGAME collective, which pairs artists and game designers up to create something awesome. I collaborated with J. Otto Seibold (hence the name Jottobots) and it was a lot of fun! He created the characters and a lot of the artwork in the game, and I did all the programming and designing. I did some additional artwork as well, like the explosions and what not.



Jottobots turned out to be a miniature exploration game with arcade style scoring. The game is played under a time limit (which starts at 5 minutes but can be increased through time bonuses) and the goal is finding the exit but also grabbing a lot of points along the way. There are a couple of power ups and a decent sized map to fully explore, and the only way to get those maximum high scores to hunt down every secret the game has to offer. read more
