Decoracing

At the end of last month, we participated in Global Game Jam 2016. The theme was “ritual,” so naturally we decided to make a game about decorating your house for the holidays. Except every day is a randomly generated holiday, with randomly generated requirements. Art is by David Freeman. Music and SFX by Kevin Green. […]

The Stabbing

This last weekend, Winston and I whipped together a 3D combat system for a 2 day game jam. We managed to get in stabbing, slashing, dashing, and a four-direction parry system.

It works like this: during your random questing, you’ll sometimes find a mob of enemies chasing one of your friends (like say, a an angry flock of chickens going […]

Original building blocks

When I first started talking with Cartoon Network about potentially creating an Adventure Time game, I had just released my endless runner parody Indiana Stone. We had a good workflow for creating voxel-style art (we called it “9-bit,” as in “8-bit to the next dimension.” I thought it was clever.) Naturally, we started off by exploring […]
