And as usual my game is not very easy (or fun) to play. The general feedback is that it’s HARD. … Continue reading →

Ben Eath, post mortem post

Usually people write a ‘post-mortem’ about making the game, writing about what went right what went badly, stuff like that. It’s also used to promote your game.

Results!

The results are in for the Ludum Dare #28 competition. Considering the comments my game had, I secretly hoped for a top ten result in the category ‘innovation’. I was almost there . .but I still consider 11th of almost 800 Jam competitors to be a very good result! Compared to my previous entry  there … Continue reading →

Helsings Hunt-A stab in the dark is DONE!

Hooray! In my teen years I was too lazy and distracted to get into game programming. I tried it a bit but soon gave up and just played games. Now several decades later I have redeemed myself!.

It has a starting screen, you can get instructions, the scrolling of the background is working, the lightning effect is working (game not suitable for people with eplilepsy).
