Late update, POC’s and current work

As every blog I have ever read, from time to time there happens a lot in the bloggers life, and updates test pushed into the back of the tasks list. Life! Since the last blog post, I have published my small racing game Strazer to Google Play store.  After updating the graphics, I’m pretty happy with it. It wasn’t meant… (more…)

First experience with Spriter

So I want to try to make my crab animation using Spriter so, first I cut out all the different parts from my Inkscape image. I did leave out all but one leg, as I should be able to scale and rotate in Spriter to make all the legs, from one set of leg sprites 🙂 So here are the… (more…)

“Left”, a new mini game and what I learned

So I’ve use a few weeks making this small puzzle idea into a working mini-game. It popped into my mind over the Christmas holiday. I thought that it would be a fun little game, and I was sure that I would learn a thing or two. So here is what I did, and learned 🙂 The basic idea: A top-down… (more…)

3×3 POC to production.

More states to the box objects, to make possible removal animation aso. Color click logic, basic game mechanics . The plan is to… (more…)

3×3 POC version 3

OK, finally had some time to try some more things out with the 3×3 idea. So now the colored boxes are boxes and not just generated quads, they are clickable and have box colliders and so does the camera/player, so if you hit a box, it’s game over, and for now you have to restart the game to play again.… (more…)

3×3 square game.

Yet another game idea. This time, a combined mouse and keyboard racer. The idea is to have a 3×3 colored board coming towards you (the feel should of cause be you race towards it), and you have to click two matching colored squares, and they will disappear, and you have to fly trough one of the hole left by the… (more…)

How simple a game can I make.

Every new game developer, asking “What’s the best advice when starting game developing?” are often told “Make lots of games” and “Start simple”, so when I saw this small Ludum Dare 26 entry called Tiny Runner by Jarcas Studios I was amazed of the simplicity of the game. So I had to try to make something even simpler, and at the same time I… (more…)
