Building Levels with My Son

I just finished making the last of the levels for our upcoming iOS game, Flibitz. Actually, I should say we finished the levels, because I had some help. My eight year old son, Andrew, sat by my side today for several hours, offering ideas and suggestions. He even designed one …

Did I Fall Off the Face of the Earth or Something?

No. I did not. But since I have not written a game, or even a blog post, since completing #1GAM back in February, I thought I should post something that serves two purposes: offering flimsy excuses for my absence, and letting you know what we’ve got coming up. In the …

Postmortem: Fun With Asthma

Well, here we are, at the end of my One Game a Month challenge. Once per month, for twelve months in a row, I have managed to finish a game. Looking back on it, I’d say some were good and some were…errr…less good. Not a single one is half as …

Postmortem: The Game of Misery

Production of this month’s game was a little strange. It went well, and it didn’t. If you would like to give “The Game of Misery” a try, CLICK HERE. If not then… well that’s just kind of rude. Don’t you know how much work I put into this? I think …

Postmortem: Roller Bomber

Postmortem: Flop ‘N Swim

This was kind of a rough month for my one game a month challenge. I’ve had some months where I had to really stretch myself to finish a game, but this is the first time I’ve struggled to start a game. I don’t know why, but I just couldn’t settle …

Postmortem: Arctic Runner

Well, I went and fell off the blogging wagon—haven’t posted anything since Ludum Dare. Sorry about that. There—I’ve admitted my mistake, and I’m blogging again now. So let’s just put this whole thing behind us and never speak of it again, okay? You’re not perfect either, you know. Remember that …

Postmortem: Journey to the Center of the Sun

I had a lot of fun making “Journey to the Center of the Sun.” The current oneGameAMonth.com theme is “Solar”. For some reason, that made me think of a guy hopping into a rocket and flying it into the sun. Because of this strange concept, I decided that some weird, …

I Love/Hate Side Projects (and so should you)

Journey to the Center of the Sun

Side projects—they’re my best friends and worst enemies. Side projects give me opportunity to experiment, to explore, and to remember why I wanted to write games in the first place. They let me play around with wacky dialog and bizarre art styles without ever giving a second thought to whether …
