Crab & Fish
, my flatgame for the 2019 jam, which is about rock pools and seashores and a little crab coming home to their fishfriend.
a tiny seahorse
. this was my first try at learning to use construct2. it has collision! it's not really a flatgame or anything else, just a tiny cute thing.
starry night/space flight
: a game i made for an ms paint jam
which had "starry night" as its theme. this is a very small, silly game about flying home through space.
fuck this fanta can in particular
: a small platform game about a sea slug who is unhappy to discover the fanta can in the mariana trench. (which is a real thing, btw!) arrow keys to move & space to fire. it has levels! and an opening sequence! sound effects! pixel graphics!
: an angry little pile of salt about ableism and capitalism.
this is around when i discovered that bitsy
is a thing. I love bitsy. it has an awesome simple/retro look, it is very very easy to get started with but can be expanded, especially with hacks, into much more complex games. I love the old-school aesthetic and the specific challenges of making things work in a very basic format.
: my very first bitsy. no real objective, just take a walk through some pixel woods before heading home.
go the fuck to bed
: a short game about the most difficult challenge of all.
new parent gothic
: made for the "teeth" themed bitsy jam; a bitsy about life with a teething child.
: a 60-second blob of interactive sadness about being far away from the one you love. made while my now-spouse and i were separated and fighting through visa red tape.
and a couple more games i threw together for game jams:
heck this bag of chips in particular
: a sequel to "fuck this fanta can" in which slug hero continues to clean up the sea. has music!
: a chill little game about being a cloud watching over a rose garden. try to water your plants and give them sunshine, but be careful not to hurt the bees!
the minotaur's tale
: oh my god, if you had told me even a week before making this that i would be able to make a functioning roguelike i would've stared blankly at you and said "no." i don't know how i made this in a weekend, and it's not everything i wanted it to be, but at a basic level it works
and i feel like that's a pretty big achievement.
go for a walk and stop for a drink in a cafe simulator
: a little bit of quarantine vent-bitsying which is 100% what it says in the title. this was intended to be for the "isolation" bitsy jam, but i was about a month late finishing it.
carcinization in progress
: a very tiny, silly game about crabs and beaches. this was the first game i made in almost a year after getting hit with an artblock/depression mashup.
the right place
: a little game-jam game about a cat walking through a house looking for... just the right place. Very tiny, hopefully cute, takes literally a minute to play.
welcome to my webring
: a little piece of nostalgia about the early internet, and specifically about personal sites and webrings. Made for the "loops" bitsy jam.
