RDC T0day!

I will (hopefully) be participating in the RDC(Rapid Development Competition) today! The RDC is a comp where you make a game in 4 hours based on their theme, you can use any game developing program you want to.
They announced the theme before it started, oddly enough... the theme is "The letter F". You are supposed to start developing at 2 PM EST (my time), today!

Wish me luck!

Edit: 2nd place with this heap of trash!: download

I forgot to post a link to the competition topic on GJ: Click here
My game is going well, I have just finished redrawing the player and boss' sprites all over again making them slightly bigger. I'm glad that's over with!

Now all I've got to do is add billions of more attacks for the boss! Only have 5 atm.

new game for gamejolt comp

I've just started working on a new game for a competition over at GameJolt. The comp is being hosted by Indie(function). The theme is "music interpretation". Here is their poster:
Click for full size.
So when I heard about the competition, I started listening to some tracks. Eventually I found one that reminded me of an old idea I once had. A boss battle that never ended, the boss just got stronger and stronger with more attacks. Your score would be whatever level the boss was at when you died. So I started working on it right away!

   The player is the guy with the cape.

The battle is fought on the edge of a cliff. Farther to the right is a tall boulder that cannot be leapt over.
I'm pretty happy with it so far. Also, does this screenshot *cough* remind you of anything?

new laptop

I just got a new laptop, my brother gave it to me since he didn't use it anymore and mine had broken. All I can say is, I can see why he didn't use this laptop.
It's pretty loud at times, it stays quiet for like 10 seconds, then turns the fan on for about 10 seconds, on and off, it gets quite annoying. Also, the touchpad, the touchpad is awful. It's hard impossible to tell by touching it, whether it is just the flatness of your keyboard or one of the clickers. Also this computer has tapping, I hate tapping, and I especially hate it when you CAN'T DISABLE TAPPING (by the way, you can't disable tapping on this computer)  (o\_/o)

What makes it even worse is that I have an external mouse, and it picked this time to break.

So don't expect much from me until I buy myself a new external mouse...

Oh, one more thing, there's a competition over at GameJolt that started last Saturday and you have a month or something to make a game based on the theme "Music Interpretation". Hopefully I can make something for it, despite these horrid circumstances.
Also, lol, I'm following my own blog.

New Games Page

I've added a Games Page and put in my WIP's and Finished games there.

I recently entered 2 games in the GMC Jam #3, which ended on the 1st of August or something. You make a game in 72 hours based on the theme they give, this time it was "LIVE". My first game "Rocket Leaper" was, In my opinion, quite a fun and original concept, however some people seemed to think that it didn't stick to the theme very well and/or got boring real quick. I have plans to finish it sometime soon when I have a chance as I believe it has a lot of potential.

My second game was titled "The Statues Live!", a lame name, I know. In the game you control 2 lifeless statues by way of a life-giving orb that transfers itself between them. It's a puzzle platformer. I'm remaking the game ATM, and trying to make a procedural generator that creates puzzles(also I'm probably gonna rename the game something like "Curse Of Stone"). Wish me luck!
