The Night Before Christmas – delayed…but still on time.

Yes, as you may have noticed december 20th came and went with no sighting of my new Christmas themed game. 🙁

It’s been a bit delayed because of one part of the game that gave me a bit of trouble, as well as not being able to find quite as much time to spend on it as I’d hope for. It’s a new game made from scratch, with a total development time of less than a month, and that’s not much time so any little delay can mean a missed deadline.

Anyway, I’ve solved the big problem I had and is now hard at work fixing the remaining small things that needs fixing.

Ironically enough it could end up being released ‘The Night Before Christmas‘ – but definitely sometime later this week – let’s see how it goes. 🙂


New game: The Night Before Christmas

Here’s a little preview of a game I’m working on.
…all things considered I think I can safely say that this will be my next game.

As you may have guessed from the title it’s a Christmas game. I wasn’t going to do one again this year, but suddenly I had an idea and I began work on it two weeks ago. A bit late – it’ll be tight, but I’m aiming for a december 20th (ish) release.

I looks a bit like Mission Elevator, and that is exactly where my inspiration comes from, and it will (hopefully) be frantic retro-action, but it’s an original game and plays nothing like Mission Elevator…well, except for having to use the elevator to go between floors..but that’s it.

Currently I have a placeholder page for the game under ‘Works in Progress’, but once the game is finished it will move to the ‘Completed Games’ section.

Festive retro action.
