Beyond The Crater (Free To Play/Open Source)

Submission Day Trailer for the GitHub Game Off 2020 Game Jam

This year I attempted something I had never attempted before. A month long game jam. This game jam requires your project to be open source and I teamed up with two other programmers to make a game for this game jam. The theme of the game jam was ‘MoonShot’. Please check out the trailer above.

5 Days of Development – Project Conquer (0.1.9)

This site hasn’t been active in a long time, due to University work where I do Games Computing. Now that my first year exams are over I’ve taken to develop a game or games over the holiday. Here’s a look at Project Conquer.

Any comments on here or the YouTube video will be taken into heavy consideration due to its early development. A trello page for the game is currently private but will be made available soon. Maybe I should get one for the Site as well to increase my activity.

Enjoy,
Tom
