I’ve had a presence on YouTube since in some format since 2011. Around this age I assumed all the content I put out was great and would share it with people at school to the point of adding everyone in my friends list into a chat and sending out a video link to my comedy series “life sucks”, I did podcasts and even sang on YouTube on the same channel. My sense of embarrassment didn’t seem to be present.Continue reading “Learning to be OPEN about my YouTube Channel”
I’ve just created a new game ‘Protect The Green’, this was created for a game jam where the theme was ‘green’. I wanted to come up with something different and I’d never tried to do a game with fake 3d height before so it was very challenging. It was also a step up from my current ongoing 16×16 project that is side scrolling to a 4 directional 32×32 project. I’m glad I ended up scrapping 8 directional movement art as this would have been a lot more work!

I recently entered the Weekly Game Jam 210 with another developer. The theme was fragments, we created a game about knocking fragmented space debris into the correct collection zones. We had quite a lot of fun creating levels for this game as we were able to combine a lot of our systems in the later levels. It’s fully free on itch.io and can be played in browser or downloaded here. https://tompouchergames.itch.io/fragmented-space

I’ve recently started doing dev challenges with another content creator on instagram. These challenge are game development challenges. I don’t currently have an active project so for the last two challenges I’ve been posting dev logs on my instagram and created a new level for ‘Hold The Throne’ an old game jam project of mine. There is now a bonus stage complete with 2 new enemies, 1 new boss, new background sprites, new music and there is also a new main menu. Here’s the trailer for the update and you can play it for free here. https://tompouchergames.itch.io/hold-the-throne

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. Devil’s Diner is a memory game about ordering food.

This post was made using my game idea generator. I’m going to be doing “runs” with the idea generator to give you an idea of it’s usage. Today I’ll be using Platform Games as my genre.
