The sky is the limit

December 23, 2010

I’ve actually been a bit more busy than usual this december and worked on a little puzzle platformer as a side-project. Just in time for Christmas, I have a first public beta ready. It’s called Sky/Limit and you can check it out now on Game Jolt.

Generic Indie Exploration Platformer

December 3, 2010

The last few months were pretty much an affair of doing tiny little things on various projects, seemingly leading nowhere. That period might just be over now, as I have settled on a serious project to work on. The headline of this post says it all.

So this game is called GIEP! You’re playing as a little boy who is lost in a strange land and has to explore this unknown world in order to get home to his grandparents.You’ll have to learn a lot on your way. Like how to double-jump and how to use a rifle. Otherwise you will end up as prey for the wild creatures roaming the land or get killed by a vicious trap.

While I do have created a very rough version of the engine, I’m at the moment in the process of making a level editor. This is the first time I’m actually bothering to do so, because for the scope of this project it would be more of a chore to put everything together directly in the layout editor of Construct. That’s according to me at least.

I’m pretty confident you’ll be seeing more of GIEP soon. Wish me luck!
