@realgreybob good ole Red Eye Rect (Today)

@nico_m__ today was a good day of fixing edge cases and changing some of my logic, but I might be driving myself insane x_x (Today)

okay done for the day but this thing is working pretty nice I think (I have a hover jump kinda thing going on) t.co/X9M2mjEo2E (Today)

Well there's still some wonkiness to resolve in cases like this and sometimes slopes still cause stack overflows. >:( t.co/L2tVoiLHzg (Today)

@tylerglaiel t.co/D9Rb0pKEc6 (Today)

@saint11 yep all in Otter :O (Today)

@tylerglaiel hahah that definitely makes me curious. I think right now the object on top will just get 0 momentum and fall. (Today)

almost there! next thing to fix is an object resting on multiple moving objects gets moved by each object... t.co/F2S1z263RE (Today)

@kinifi Wasn't world of goo a jam game? Can't think of any others off the top of my head (Today)

@Lumin0via drink 506 lbs of orange juice sleep for 71 hours eat 37 grains of oatmeal and do 1413 push ups and you'll be fine (Today)

@isoiphone Hahhah oh well (Yesterday)

@tylerglaiel that works but I just discovered jumping into a slope with a stack causes chaos (Yesterday)

@isoiphone you seem a bit floaty #kaboom (Yesterday)

@Doomlaser Hmmm there might be stuff to pick up like in Lyle but would go beyond cubes :O (Yesterday)

@GauthamCode No game yet, working on the core platforming physics stuff with pushblocks and moving platforms and all that stuff. (Yesterday)

@raiganburns Yeah I can pull off that kinda work during crunch, game jams, or working on easy stuff I've done 100 times before. (Yesterday)

This is working even better now but I'm sure I'm just missing some sort of crazy bug lurking in the shadows. t.co/NofUiWNkRA (Yesterday)

@sgricci yeah like 90% of my work is on my own projects (Yesterday)

@sgricci Wow nice :o (Yesterday)

@ADAMATOMIC todo: set up the redbubble page for the "dont timebox the void" t-shirt (Yesterday)

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!

Holiday Bundles and Deals!

Holiday Bundles and Deals!

Just a quick heads up! I've been posting about this like mad on Twitter but then I realized that my Twitter widget on my site is still broken...

Offspring Fling is currently available on Indie Royale with a bunch of other cool games. It's a pay what you want bundle but there is a minimum on how much you pay. The minimum increases when someone purchases the bundle at the minimum, and it decreases when the bundle is purchased for more than the minimum. Getting the Indie Royale bundle also grabs you a copy of Namiko, which is a game jam game I made just over a year ago now. I polished up the game quite a bit and now it's a fully playable deal! It's only available through the current Indie Royale bundle, so get movin' if you want it!

At the time of me writing this there is only ONE DAY LEFT! to get the bundle. Sorry for the late notice! But if you want Offspring Fling and a bunch of other cool games for a low low price then you have to act now!

In other news, Snapshot is now available from the Humble Indie Bundle! There is some time left in this bundle to get Snapshot, Closure, Shank 2, and a bunch of other rad games.

Last but not least, Offspring Fling is just $3.99 right now on Steam.

I think that's about everything... have a good holiday season!
