Just a Doodle

Hey! I'm going to start posting tiny blog posts here instead of trying to hold off until I have mountains of text to type. I want to get into the habit of actually updating this thing and posting stuff that I'm making, or whatever. So with that, here's a doodle from the other night.

This is actually the first thing I've really drawn since the beginning of 2013. Been busy with game stuff for the whole month, I guess!

2012 JayisGames Awards

2012 JayisGames Awards

A few weeks ago Offspring Fling was nominated for an award over on JayisGames.com for best indie platformer of 2012. I didn't really think much of it since there was some pretty fierce competition in the category, but the other day I woke up to an email congratulating me on my win!

Well fancy that! I don't really know how this happened, but in the end all that matters is that I have a fancy gold coin internet image to display to everyone in the world. Thanks to everyone that voted for Offspring Fling!

Global Game Jam 2013 - Timelapse

Global Game Jam 2013 - Timelapse



Ended up making a game for Global Game Jam 2013. I went to the Phoenix location at University of Advancing Technology (the only location in all of Arizona!) The games were judged locally and I ended up getting first place overall, yay! I won 48 gigs worth of flash drives. Not bad!

The game isn't really in a state where I want to release it just yet. I might want to take this one and make it into something bigger and better... but I say that about all my jam games. This one is different though! ... I think.

About

Hi there, my name is Kyle, and I'm a kid disguised as a grown up. I'm making video games and living the indie game developer life in Tempe, Arizona. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.
