My first Google Play game!

“Don’t get Cut!” Is my first game that I focused on for a full month, and submitted to the google play store, It was inspired by newground’s “Touch” contest and built in construct 2.

I had alotta fun developing this game, and it feels like my fullest game yet, (except maybe RGB?)

I used an experimental workflow schedule that worked very well for me that I definately plan on using again.

Week 1: Design.

Mostly I used this week to sketch out alotta different level / game mechanics on paper, and got used to construct 2.

Week 2:Develop.

I refined my game mechanics, and restructured the level sequence, fine tuned the scoring systems, and had a rought draft of the UI established.

Week 3:Polish.

I focused on learning alot of new things with gimp, and tryed my best to make the graphics look “decent nuff” (some might say I failed in this aspect lol) refined the UI, and got everything ready to a point where I could submit a full game.

Week 4:Distribute

Tackled the process of the google play store signing, and submission, researched and learned of several other prominent android market places, and web distribution channels.

Conclusion:

It was a great ride, and though I haven’t sold a million copies or anything the process has been very educational, and though sometimes very frustrating, the rewards have been well worth it! Looking forward to refining this process through more iterations, and I hope my experiences can be useful to someone.

Thanks for takin the time to read my experiences, and If you have a sec, feel free to try out my game below!

Chaotika.

“Chaotika”

 

“Chaotika” was a game I made in less than a week for gamejolt’s “Chaos” contest.

my goal with this game was to create a feeling of chaos, without a obviously chaotic theme.

In alotta ways I succeded, also I suck at art.

“Looking Back”

 

 

 

“Looking back” was a text game I made in qbasic 15 years after discovering some old qbasic games I made as a teenager.

originally i had planned on entering this into ludumdare’s “hindsight” mini LD but i had problems with compiling it, and didn’t make the deadline, you can play it by clicking the above image.

Somethin Interestin, i learned making this little village, Rather than make four different rooms for the houses, i decided i’d be lazy and make one house layout, then depending on which “door” object the player collides with it spawns a different npc in the room, and upon exit, sets a variable to decide which area to exit into when back into the village, Good Stuff!
