I’ve been working hard on my latest project, and it’s starting to look like a game! Yay! Here’s a look at stage 1-1 as it currently stands. Music (which isn’t part of the game) by Kevin MacLeod at Incompetech.
Hi, Everyone! I’ve just finished redesigning and reorganizing the site, including pulling stuff from Ephemera (my former Blogging Through Games site) to/back to here and recategorizing it. I think it’s just easier for everyone that way.
The new Playground section is for stuff I would’ve posted on Ephemera — thoughts and doodles in game form, mostly, but sometimes a bit more, and always stuff I put together in a relatively short time. Basically, that’s the part of the site where I put stuff I’m not too concerned about calling a “game”. (There are a couple of Twine stories in the Games listings that would’ve gone in there, too, but since they were my very first projects, I put them with the rest of the games.) My personal favorite is Apocalypse Girl, a Twine story about loneliness.
For my stuff in general, I’ve also added engine tags content advisories and (when appropriate) an NSFW tag so people can tell at a glance what’s there. I hope they come in handy.
Anyway, I hope you like the new look and the new features. 🙂
IMPORTANT: The password to access the game is SWFM .
I went digging through my digital closet and found this under an old teddy bear and a couple of mismatched socks. It’s the very first version of She Who Fights Monsters–the version that existed before that was even the title.
Don’t expect a lot from this; it’s very short and I think I threw it together in a few hours. But it is kind of neat to see how a game evolves.
Hi, everyone! I am still here and working on Homicidal Jenny. But about a month ago, I finally got Game Maker 2. It’s a lot different from 1.4; I pretty much ran away screaming the first time I opened it. :p
But I did eventually get back to it and I’m trying to familiarize myself with all the new stuff. Since this could take a while (and I have a full-time job again), I guess I’m aiming for a “Sometime in 2019” release date now.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Maybe I’ll have something more exciting to share later.
This one began with a morning run in the snow on Christmas weekend. It was cold, gray and quiet; it felt like no one else was left in the world–like I was a character from a post-apocalyptic novel. So after I got home, I took that idea and, well, kept running with it.
I didn’t really know what this was about until after I started working on it. For me, this one is about loneliness. It might mean something different to others.
This is just some test footage of a new weapon I’ve added to Homicidal Jenny. I’m thinking of making it bounce off solid objects instead of being destroyed by them.
