Surprisingly, though I have rarely touched Flash this year, I got a job this summer working 5 days a week at Mousebreaker. (That’s this Mousebreaker). As such, I have been powering away at Flash, and with any luck I’ll come out of it with something cool to show for it. Here is a little preview of the first.
Menu ripped off from the original Driver. Let’s call it an homage.
The working title is “Literally Insane Racing”. This is one I’ve been wanting to make for a while – the biggest Flash top-down racer I can imagine, with 40 cars available to play. The hook is that the cars are all useful for different races – rather than a linear progression from slow to fast, in this game no one car will be able to win every race. Oh, and it’s going to have a stupid story attached, because it’s one of my games and that’s what I do.
(I think I got better at drawing in the last year despite not drawing at all.)
We’ll see how that goes. Incidentally, there’s nothing quite as scary as opening up your game on your home PC and seeing how the colours look vastly different.
This one is of course about The Girl with the Invisible Heart. I think this will be my most successful game this summer, on principle of it not having much of my art in, woo!
In other news, I made a game in 24 hours.
In other news, I’d really really like some beta testers. If you want to help me out, comment saying so and I’ll add your email to my list of super-awesome-testers.¬†If you can write in sentences, and talk trash about games, you’re qualified. Then you can brag to people how you helped make this and that game, to show how cool you are!
