A new release (as usual it's a complete surprise)

Made a new game yesterday, for Quite Odd Games 100 Epic Minutes competition. Obviously it was made in around 100 minutes, and it's about killing zombies in the mountains as they are dropped off by UFOs.

I'm still working on my other projects obviously, but I thought I'd do my usual trick and announce loads of stuff I'm working on before just spontaneously making something completely unrelated.

Updates on things

Been working on a number of little projects recently, as well as focusing on Return to The Cave, which still needs a better name. Progress with that is going well, but I want to say a few things about other projects I'm doing at the moment.

The first is called The Slip, and it's a top down shooter focusing on the mechanic of teleportation. I've got most things down now, and the engine mostly works so I can start making it into an actual game rather than a tiny test room.

The next is Losst, a strange horror themed platformer, with lots of little hidden messages and things. Currently it looks like the least likely one to be finished, but I like where I was going with it so may still complete.

The last one is called No Room In Heaven For You, and it's intended to be an entry into the EGP Rejection contest. It's like a cross between Ranger X and Double Dragon, set in the beautiful land of Hell, and actually has a proper narrative to it. So far I've only worked on it for about 3 hours but a lot of the engine works and it's more exciting to me than The Slip or Losst at the moment. I'll be interested to see how it turns out.

Might release a demo for Return to the Cave soon, once animations and game flow are finished. I'll keep you posted.
