That may or may not be a slight exaggeration.
With the conclusion of the nomination phase of the AGS Awards for 2018, my monthly AGS game jam entry, Racist, has been nominated in two categories, being Best Non-Adventure Game, and Best Programming. I am super proud of this. Voting will start next weekend, and the competition will be tough. In the Best Programming category for instance, the competitors are two commercial games by industry veterans. Racist should win of course–the code in that game might cause unprepared minds to blow–but to be honest, I am perfectly happy with just a nomination.
I’m strongly considering finishing Racist. After release I had the thought of adding a dune buggy stage as an alternate game mode, and my interest in things with wheels has only grown since then.
I’ve been stuck on character art for my new game for months, and after finally just doing it myself, I now have some really good game dev momentum going. I really hate to talk about stuff I’m still working on, but since I’ve been so lazy, both in the dev and blogging departments, I’ll post a screenshot from the unfinished game:
It’s an adventure game hybrid, set in the same universe as my previous game. Now that I’ve cleared a major hurdle in development, I’ve been making the few remaining game assets in blender. The shot above is one of a few scenes of debris that will be encountered in the game. You basically collect spare parts from these. (more…)
This is a sliver from an early version of a room in my new AGS game. It mostly takes place on a desert planet, and this room will contain the core of the gameplay.
It doesn’t have a name yet.
Being the tale of conceptionising a game, possibly centred around such things as robots and illicit affairs, to be found here.
