Namiko Now Available

Namiko Now Available
Hot off the heels of just releasing Super Ninja Slash, I'm releasing another game into the public's hands. Originally available as a bonus game for the Indie Royale bundle back in December, Namiko is a relatively simple wave defense type game that can be played on OSX or Windows. (You can find the downloads on this page.)

When it was originally created, Namiko scored me 1st place at a local game jam held here in Phoenix at the University of Advancing Technology. The goal of the game is to defend your palace against hordes of attacking humanoid enemies that have three different powers. As the protagonist Namiko, you can scan these enemies and absorb their powers to make them your own. The game is about figuring out each enemy's weakness, and maximizing your chances of successfully defending by choosing the right weapon at the right time. I think the theme of the game jam was "adaptation."

Since the jam version I put a few more days work into it and just tried to generally polish up the experience. On a side note, releasing this game into the public officially makes this my 5th release between GDC 2012 and GDC 2013! I'll post more about that later though.

Have fun!

Super Ninja Slash

Super Ninja Slash
Over the summer I went to a local game jam. 48 hours to sit down and try and make a game. The theme of that game jam was "stealth" and Super Ninja Slash is the game that I ended up making.

The game is pretty short because I actually didn't add that much to it after the jam. The original version featured some pretty bad music by myself, but luckily DannyB was able to step in and make a way better track for the game.

Super Ninja Slash also features a couple of leaderboards based on time and enemy kills, so if you're fortunate enough to get through the game's 9 brutal levels you can submit your time and compete with other internet people.

This also marks my 5th and final game release before GDC2013! Thus fulfilling my promise to myself to release 5 games in the span of a year. I'll talk more about that later though. For now just swing on over to Super Ninja Slash and give it a whirl!

Stickers!

Hot of the presses from the fine folks at Stickermule! This is probably the only thing I'll be giving out at GDC this year. Only ordered 100 of them because I'm pretty bad at being social and handing out things like business cards and stickers and what not. If you want one just find me during GDC! They go really well on sketchbooks and laptops.

No idea what is going on with her back foot. Couldn't figure it out so I just blobbed in something stupid looking. OH WELL!
