I’ve started work on a mini/prototype game and reached a point now with Stencyl where I am actually able to put together a semi-decent gameplay prototype in less than a day πŸ™‚

Its pretty neat being able to whip up a couple of placeholder graphics in photoshop and filterforge, and then put it all together in Stencyl to test out the basics of the gameplay and mechanics for a game idea. I highly recommend trying out Stencyl for prototyping if you’re looking for something to help speed up the process for when you’re making proof of concept for a client or what not πŸ™‚

Twitch Defense (super early work in progress demo)

You control the object at the center of the screen, and your goal is to survive for as long as possible. Shoot the incoming red enemies by pressing the arrow keys in the direction of the enemies.

Dont shoot the green bonus objects, that will give you a negative score… but letting the bonus object hit you, will grant you a big positive score.

I plan on adding an upgrade menu that allows the player to unlock and upgrade new bonuses and features as they play the game more.



beholder wallpaper, originally uploaded by Eeron Kilian.

Another wallpaper teaser thingy from our upcoming game πŸ™‚

This time its the Beholder, a scary mythical monster of many eyes (and one toothy mouth! )

It is said that each eye has a unique magical (and painful) attack that the Beholder uses to assault its hapless prey!

He doesnt have a proper name yet… Everyone who has tried was either turned to stone, devoured, or fried to death by the Beholder…

Ps. He definetely does NOT like to be called Eye-Bert!

Yeah, Bump n Drop now has 16 levels… So time to re-Conquer the highscore list and show everyone just how Hillariously Epic Win your Combo Skills are πŸ˜‰

Or perhaps your combo skills are beyond even Hillariously Epic Win? *gasp* Dare I say … Chuck Norris! πŸ˜‰

So what are you waiting for? Go go go!!

Quick update before hitting the showers and heading for work… πŸ˜‰

Been working most of last night and all of this morning in order to change the old existing graphics from real 3d models, to flat planes with images projected onto them…

In non-geek speak this basically means that the game will look the same on most, if not all computers. Rather than, as it were before, where some computers display fugly solid balls and other computers display fancy looking 3d shaded see through magikky looking sparkleballs of doom! πŸ˜‰

Drawing the stuff didnt take that long… replacing… well… lets just say that the people who invented ‘Planning Ahead’ were on to something πŸ˜‰

I should have planned ahead… but hey, its always easy to be clever in hindsight… or ‘backclever’ as we say in denglish where i come from (yeah, its an insider joke and will most likely only be caught by my danish readers… all ehm… 0 of you? πŸ˜› )

Anyways πŸ™‚ Here is a picture for those of you who are unable to actually pop into the game to see what I am talking about πŸ™‚ Remember, this is just the beginning! More fancy schmancy changes to come! πŸ˜‰

Bump n Drops new facelift

Yep! It took a while to get implemented, but finally, with a bit of help from a tutorial on serverside highscores and alot of help from a couple of friends as well as the admin who is in charge of hosting my game… Yay, its finally up and working πŸ™‚

Also did a bunch of updates on maps and finetuned a few mechanics on the game.

So knock yourselves out, play the game and set a few records and put your name on the highscore list for all to see! ;D

Enjoy!
