Harrowed – A RL made in zero hours whilst drunk :/

October 29th, 2011 Comments off

Yes, I managed it, though around the 45 minute mark I thought I was seriously going to fail. The game is a simple dungeon crawler – you get your health regenerated upon level change, and must kill/avoid the enemies chasing you. Download the windows version here:

Alternatively Mac and Linux users can download the T-Engine beta 34 and grab the module file for the game here:

A game in zero hours?

October 27th, 2011 Comments off

Slashie linked me to this post last week:

And I thought well… that sounds fecking impossible. But it’s stuck in my mind, and watching a documentary about arctic wolves has just given me an inspiration for a simple but potentially interesting game. Not sure if I can do it in an hour, even with the wonderful T-Engine, but I’m damn well gonna try!

One potential problem is that the challenge is set at 3am this Saturday, and I’m supposed to be at a house party that night… Can I make in a game in zero hours whilst pissed? Well, I guess there’s only one way to find out…

Gruesome, Trapper, Unstoppable on N900

Some clever chap has ported my FreePascal games to the Nokia N900. With their relatively low number of keys they should be fairly playable on the small device. Details are here:

Ido Yehieli is making Cardinal Quest available for free… but just for today. Details are here:

(or if you want a shortcut, visit http://t.co/ipXZGxYK and enter code BXZQ00097)

Cardinal Quest is a commercial indie roguelike by developer Ido Yehieli, with a very unique focus on interface and style. I helped review it on Roguelike Radio a few weeks back, and it’s definitely a game worth playing, so this is a great opportunity for those who haven’t tried it yet.
