In space, no-one can hear them quack.

Ducks in Space.. Not particuarly frightening right? Well until theres hordes of them and all you have is a small laser pistol and limited ammo.

Not bad for 3 hours work.

Ducks in Space!

The theme for Blind Panic is ducks in space?!?

Definitely wasn't expecting that but hey.. It'll be fun.

Blind Panicking about Blind Panic (and Rift Contest)

Hey guys,

Im just preparing for blind panic.. and ive suddenly realised I have no idea how to prepare for it. Literally no idea, should I be practicing sketches? drawing come generic concept art we could use? Looking up ways to code particles effects (Not that I should be doing too much programming with 2 programmers on the team but you never know)

How would you prepare for a contest where you don't know what you'll be making?

PS Rift - Design a Colossus Contest  on DeviantArt (Check it out!)

Busy Busy Busy..

Hey all

Feels like forever since I posted on here but thats because i've been incredibly busy. My collab project is now nearly done (Yay!), Blind Panic is coming up so i've been preparing for that (well as much as I can without knowing what the theme will be).

Even found time to do a little writing and drawing :)

PS - if anyone can think of a really great game idea involving Growth. Lemme know.

Blind Panic?!?

Hey all

I know this isn't technically related to my flash game development (well not yet anyway), but this post is going to be about Blind Panic, a 32 hour speed development contest being run at my Uni. The rules are pretty simple, register a team of 4-5 people, turn up on the first day to find out the theme then develop a game based on that theme in 32 hours.

Should be pretty interesting. Even if we don't win, seeing everyone running around trying to get things done is always funny.

So wish me luck

Blobbs 2 - New Teaser Vid

Hey all

New teaser video for Blobbs 2, showing the first 20 levels. I was planning to play through each level without failing and look really good. But of course it didn't work out like that so excuse the (many many) fails.

Anyway Check It Out!

Soon as I start a contest entry...

You know how it goes, you start something then a million distractions come along to stop you finishing it.

Well the contest entry is on hold, I have something else to work on. Can't really say much about it since its artwork for someone else's game. But its a good enough reason to break off from the contest, lets just hope I have time to come back to it later

Any guesses what sorta game it'll be?

Game in 10 Days Kontest On Kongregate

Firstly, yes I know I spent contest wrong.. Mortal Kombat can do it so why can't i?

This post is highlighting a not so well known contest that some of the developers run on the Kongregate Forums.

You have a theme for the contest (or in this case 2 themes, long story) and 10 days to develop a brand new game as your entry.

This week's theme(s) are Fire and/or Music. So any budding flash developers reading this. Get across to the Kongregate Forums and take a look at entering :)

~ Nutter

PS I'll probably post some stuff later about my own entry as I work on it.

Blobbs 2 Sneak Peek

Hey all.

I've been working on Blobbs 2 recently, started out as a project for my Authoring Module at Uni. But took on a life of its own and soon developed into a full game. 12 Blobb types (including 8 new ones), 40 Levels, Achievements, a Level Editor. Its the full deal this time round.

Not quite ready for release yet (Any sponsors looking at this, feel free to PM me for a link if you're interested in sponsorship) but heres a quick sneak peek :)

Hello World (Attempt 2)

Well I did set this up yesterday.. And I did put a hello world post. But it some how got lost with all the Blogger Maintenance and stuff. Ah well.

Take 2! Action!

Ok, so Hey!

Welcome to my new blog. It's going to be a place for me talk about my games, projects im working on (Read that as complain and moan about projects im working on), mention any good games I might play and of course, showcase my work. Hoping to get some stuff online about some of my old games soon. Probably Webby first.

Anyway, thats all for now (unless they lose my blog again! ¬_¬)
