Bouncy Planet

My twelfth game is complete! Bouncy Planet is my tenth #onegameamonth game, and I’m very proud of it. The theme this month was “Childhood,” and Bouncy Planet is the story of a child playing with a solar system made of bouncy balls. You can play as General Mean, a villain determined to ram all the planets and knock them out of orbit, or as Star Captain, the hero who must shoot him down in order to protect Bouncy Planet. Or you can switch back and forth at will and do whatever you want – they’re your toys, after all.

A Snowball’s Chance – Mobile Edition

Due to something resembling popular request, I have hacked some mobile functionality into a new version of A Snowball’s Chance. You can play the “mobile edition” here.

That sounds simple, but it means that trying to steer with one finger is awful. I find that holding the mobile device like a game controller and using my thumbs to steer makes this feel right. Enjoy!

The result is A Snowball’s Chance, and I’m pretty sure it’s my best work to date.

Madame Zarena Wants to Be a Clown

My fourth game is done, and it’s available to play on this very site! It also happens to be my second game for One Game a Month. The theme this month was “The Fair,” so I gave it some thought and came up with this: Madame Zarena Wants to Be a Clown, a heartwarming tale of a psychic who dreams of bringing laughter to people by hitting herself in the face with a pie.
