Frankenstein’s Monsters, Inc. is my entry to Ludum Dare 33, the theme of which was ‘You Are the Monster’. It’s a simple management game where as Dr Frankenstein, you turn your monster-creation abilities into a business! Put your monsters to work to expand your production, or sell them for a tidy profit. Of course, the general public are not entirely convinced that digging up the dead, stitching them together, and putting them to work is completely ethical. Some might call it “monstrous”! You’ll have to devote some of your income to PR works such as building orphanages, to calm public outrage before they burn down your establishment.
5-A-Day Fun Maze is a 3D maze game about eating 5 portions of fruit and veg every day! It’s a parody of bad educational games, made for GameBoy Jam 4, hence the low resolution and horribly green colour palette.
Mavis Bacon Teaches Typing is a quick little typing game starring delicious (if not nutritious) typing tutor Mavis Bacon. Type as many breakfast words as you can before they go off screen, while not getting distracted by the food flying everywhere!
It’s Asteroids, but with cats! Made in a weekend when I realised I hadn’t done a 1GAM game for May. It’s not too bad as an Asteroids clone I think, but mostly it’s really dumb. Makes me laugh anyway!
Snowman Sumo is, well, a sumo-wrestling game about snowmen. Roll around, gathering snow to build yourself up, then smash the other player’s snowman into the water!
This was originally created from scratch in 48 hours for Ludum Dare 31, which had the theme of “Whole game on one screen”.
Update 06/04/2020: Replaced the archaic Unity Web Player build with an HTML5 one. So you can actually play it again! It’s been so long that I’m not sure if the after-LD improvements were included before or not, but it now features up to 3 player local multiplayer, singleplayer against the computer, and a bit more spit and polish. (But the same 8-second loop of a-capella “music”.)
F!shing is a madcap arcade game for Android and PC. Chase after an assortment of different fish, and fight for the top score on the Lake of the Day!
My One Game a Month 2013 January entry. Play as a biker who for some reason is riding during a meteor shower, and see how long you can last before blunt force trauma knocks you off!
Originally my entry for the 2012 Charity Game Jam, the theme of which was the NES, then later updated to add some variety. You are a yak! Destroy things for no apparent reason! Arrow keys to move, space to jump in a destructive manner. I actually made the music for this too. The name was randomly generated on VideogameNa.me!
