A better (post E3) update about “Everything is going to be OK”…

Share Button

So since my last update the game has been released as early access! Game Jolt page: http://gamejolt.com/games/ok/263066 Itch.io page: https://alienmelon.itch.io/everything-is-going-to-be-ok I have to admit, I had no idea that it would blow up this way before it’s even done… I released it as early access to pay for hosting costs, and help with development. You […]

small rant & creative observations lately…

Share Button

I’ve been totally avoiding watching Lets Plays of my work. It’s funny, but I used to like seeing people exaggeratedly yell “what the fuck” at my stuff, but after a while it kind of gets to me. I don’t know why. I guess it’s kind of hard seeing something you put so much into being […]

updates, faux frames, geocities, and stuff…

Everything Is Going To Be OK is getting so nice and big now. I have the “fairy tale generator” in there for one of the pages. The context is adorable. A character dies and then one of the onlookers says “everyone dies”, “even the ones you love”, “yeah, especially those…” then they ask “so what […]

Everything Is Going To Be OK (Progress Update #6 & Artist’s Statement)

Share Button

I’m creeping up to 15 mini-games done. There is good variety! I’m so happy. Some interesting developments on direction… Once I reach 20 I’m going to hide the 20 (or so) other mini-games inside these games. So you are presented with these “pages” and then discover that the “pages” have lots of depth to them. […]

Everything Is Going To Be OK update #5 & some hot takes

Share Button

I’m here to give a development update about the progress of my game, but given current political circumstances it is hard not to comment… It’s been tremendously depressing to watch America burn like this. I guess we should keep with the doublespeak trend and call it alt-america now… Ok sorry bad jokes aside. I’m not […]

Everything Is Going To Be OK (milestone update!)

Share Button

I did it! Page 10 is done, and that means I did 10 minigames! AaAaaaAaaah! I said I would make a big deal about having 10 done, because (for me) this means I just have to repeat what I did 3 more times to get to 40. 40 seems much more doable now. Seeing that […]

“Everything Is Going To Be OK” progress update #3

Share Button

This is post #3 documenting the progress… Before I talk more about it. I’ve been posting tiny projects on my itch page. More little things are planned, so you can follow me there for further silliness. I’ve also gotten into making good (probably), but completely unusable things on github. You might get a laugh by […]

“Everything Is Going To Be OK” & some recent new work

Share Button

This is post #2 of documenting the progress… As I write this I just finished re-architecting a large chunk of it, and finished another “page” of my new game-zine-not-a-game-thing… that’s a mouthful. I’ll have to work on a better definition… If you don’t know what I’m talking about I suggest you read this. There, I […]

Announcing my new game in-the-works: “Everything is going to be OK”

This is post #1 of documenting the progress… Ok! I’m here to announce my new in-the-works upcoming game: “Everything is going to be OK” Although this is more or less of a working title. I don’t think this thing will have a title. That line is the first thing you see when the game opens, […]

Why my games are disappearing from the AppStore

Share Button

To start you can play all my games (free) here: http://tetrageddon.com They are only disappearing from mobile. Not everywhere.

A summary of my Fantastic Arcade week

This week I had the amazing opportunity to attend Fantastic Arcade. Two of my games where there this time. It continues to stay my favorite game event. For one, there is more booze there than your liver knows what to do with, and the people are so beautiful. I loved being able to meet the […]

update & a Fireside article…

Again… It has been a while since I updated this thing. Which I think is good. I am one of those people to busy for petty things like food, or sleep, or life, or whatever :D To start my update with something more sobering… I just wrote a Fireside article (GameJolt’s blog) about my experiences […]

Couple of my Game Jam games lately (small update)…

I’ve been kind of busy post-launch to get my head back in order. Whenever I release something “big” I have a disoriented and small depression phase. I wonder why tho, but I’m sure others get it too. This sort of thing can be all consuming and when it’s done you’re sort of left with the […]

Beyond The Filter (podcast with ellaguro)

Prior to my recent release of ARMAGAD (also Tetrageddon Games), Liz Ryerson had invited me to participate in her new podcast series: Beyond The Filter It’s a series that breaks down topics for people without prior knowledge (on said topic). I kind of simplify that description too much. It’s an exciting project/initiative on her part, […]
