Two updated games: Vallation 128K & Doctor Who for OSX.

I have two “new” releases today – The 128K version of Vallation and the OSX port of my Doctor Who game.

The 128K version of Vallation has many changes and improvements over the 48K version that came out a year ago.

And not only that – it’s also finally out on physical cassette. It’s a stuning release and duplication and handling is done by Psytronik Software. Go here to read more about it.

The second release is the OSX port of my Doctor Who Graphical Adventure game, that came out about a month ago. Now it can be played if you’re on a Mac computer too. Go to the games page to download the game.

 

 

New Game: Doctor Who Adventure Game

I’m not only doing remakes – sometimes I do original games too, and today I’m happy to present my latest game.

The game is a graphical adventure set the Doctor Who universe. The game is inspired by classic games like Pyjamarama and the classic LucasArts adventures games.

The artist and I started work on it 3 years (and two weeks) ago, but had a 22 month break in the middle of development, because after making the first two parts of the game we didn’t quite know where to take the story for the last part … so we both worked on other things for almost 2 years. When we finally got back to it we came up with the final third of the story, so the actual development time is “only” about 14 months … and a quite considerable chunk of that time has been fixing bugs, LOL, but we both feel that it’s done and ready to be played now, so it’s nice to finally be able to “put it out there“.

I hope you will enjoy the game … and please let me know if you like it. 🙂

There will be two more games released sometime over the next two months. Stay tuned …

3 new games coming soon.

I tend to only post when I have finished something – so it’s been while (January). However, things are looking up as I have 3 games that are all basically 99% done, so you can all expect 3 new games before the year is over.
 
One is a PC game (and hopefully Mac too) and the two other games are ZX Spectrum games.
 
The PC game is a graphical Doctor Who adventure.
 
The first of the Spectrum games is a remake of a C64 game called Sqij. A VERY poor conversion was released back in 1987 but this remake is much closer to the original game. And actually playable too, LOL.
 
The second Spectrum game is an expanded 128K version of Vallation – the game I released last year.
 
When the games are done and ready for download I will make new posts with more details.
 
The future’s looking bright 😀

You play as the Fourth Doctor, but other characters are around too.

 

The new version of Sqij for the Spectrum

 

The new level in Vallation 128K plays very differently from the previous ones.

New game released: Neon Invasion Earth.

FINALLY, DID IT! – my circular vector version of Space Invaders is finally done.
…only took 6.5 years too. 😀

The actual development time is considerably less though – probably a year or so, but due to the game growing way beyond what I had envisioned and the impossible task of balancing the gameplay difficulty because of it, I simply lost faith in it despite it being at least 90% complete when I put it on hold.

However, it has now been de-mothballed and the last bits finished off, so it can be played.

You may also want to read the postmortem I wrote on the game.

The game can’t be played through in one sitting so you shouldn’t expect that. Some levels are easy, some hard, some boring, some fun and at times you can basically only win by sacrificing lives or all your shields, but it’s possible to play through the entire thing in 2-3 hours.

I hope it’ll entertain you in one way or the other. Let me know what you think.
