TowerFall Tournament Finals



Check out me playing TowerFall at the Humble Bundle 2014 World Invitational Tournament vs. my good friend and training buddy Will Courtney. It was a best of 5 set and each of us had to play through amazing opponents to get to the finals. Good times!

Humble Weekly Sale!

Humble Weekly Sale!

Just a quick heads up, Offspring Fling is currently in the Humble Weekly Sale along with seven other amazing games.

This particular bundle is in support of the software and tools that we use to create our games, including FlashDevelop which was used for Offspring Fling.

It works the same way as a regular bundle, and you get more amazing games if you pay enough moneys. You also get Steam activations for all of the games.

The Assassin Prince

The Assassin Prince

It's no secret that TowerFall might be my favorite game made in the past decade. The local TowerFall community in Phoenix is quite strong, and we play almost every night. We've been playing the beta for the recent PC and PS4 release for a few months now, and over that time I've collected a whole lot of replays.

Since the game is finally out I'm going to start sharing all of my awesome replays on The Assassin Prince. I pretty much always play pink, so every replay is going to feature the pink archer somehow.

Also, next week is Game Developers Conference and I'm looking forward to playing so much TowerFall with everyone, YEAH!

Dev Log: More Explosions

Image

Been having a lot of fun with my workflow of animating in Flash, exporting to a SWF, and then using ShoeBox to convert to a sprite sheet. There are some hiccups in the pipeline still, but hopefully I can get them ironed out before I get any deeper in the art department.

I should really be working on the actual game part of this game, and probably all the systems that are going to be needed to be intertwined, but at this point I'm having way too much fun with particles. I've been bound by the word of Flash and ActionScript 3 for so long. Having 30 particles on the screen in Offspring Fling was a nightmare for performance, but now in the land of SFML, C#, and Otter, I can spawn hundreds of particles and the game doesn't hitch at all -- not even in debug mode!

On the Road Again

On the Road Again

I'm starting off the new year with a lot of traveling, so I'm trying to figure out how I can possibly keep up posting stuff on my blog in the next few weeks.

Today's adventure is going to bring me down to Long Island in New York, where I'll be departing on an airplane to Orlando to eventually get to Disney World. I'll be there for a few days, and then I'm going back home to the desert where I'll then be leaving for Seattle for two weeks. Some of those two weeks will also be spent visiting the Indie House in Vancouver.

I think this Disney World trip is going to be my first ever proper "vacation" in a long time. I won't really be on my laptop at all, or on the internet, or working on anything for 5 or 6 days. I'm wondering if it's going to be relaxing, or terrifying. Hopefully I'll be distracted by enough roller coasters.

Once I get home, and into Seattle, I'll be getting right back into working on my new game which doesn't have a good name yet...
