Hold The Throne – Trailer (Weekly Game Jam 150)

Hold The Throne was creating for the Weekly Game Jam 150 taking place on itch.io last week. The Theme was ‘You’re The Enemy’ I interpreted this as you being able to cause damage to the player, just as enemies can. I decided to go with the idea of your projectiles bouncing and wrapping screens. These projectiles could hit you in the back and damage you similar to an enemy. You can play this in the browser for free here.

Devil’s Diner – Weekly Game Jam 95

I decided to take part in a Game Jam for the first time in a while. This was my first solo Game Jam, in which I roughly spent a couple of days on. The personal gains for this Game Jam were to motivate me to create a game for the first time in a while by forcing myself to stick to a theme and see it through to the end.

This is my first ever game to be publicly available so please do me a massive favour and give it a go, leave a review and share it with your friends. I plan to continuously update the game to add new features (last main update was online leaderboards and achievements). It’s completely free with no ads and to be able to effectively use it for my portfolio I’ve got to get that install number growing so it would help me out tremendously if you took a look!

Gameplay mechanics include:-

  • Prebuilt Levels
  • Randomly Generated Levels
  • Level Code (share random levels online)
  • Achievements
  • Leaderboards
  • Tons of obstacles
  • Customise your character
  • Teleportation
  • Times for beating a level

Thanks,

Tom

Super Mario Maker as a toolset for future developers

Haunted House

My haunted house Mario Maker course.

As a student doing a computer games course I can’t help but wonder how the Games Industry is going to change over the years. When you think about what the first developers were like, you picture coders that went from creating games from scratch. In the present we have many different game engines to use, should we choose to do so.
