Greeny is about to die…

UPDATE: Greeny’s Run has a new home! Get the latest alpha, or play the game right in your browser on the Tagunda website!

Greeny is a small fellow who happens to be green and slightly wobbly in nature, and he is most unfortunate. Trapped in a 100-level deep dungeon, his only hope is to rely on your guidance, to take as many Meanies out with him as he can, and gather all the riches! Only you can help little Greeny out!

My Salvage Trader Kickstarter is running right now. If you haven’t seen it, please go take a look and come right back. I’ll wait here. All good?

Running a Kickstarter is more stressful than you might expect. Exciting, yes, but it also makes me nervous and slightly obsessive. Maybe because it’s my first, who knows. Either way, I needed a distraction to take my mind off things, especially during the first few days. Enter the Gamemaker engine, and as a result of playing around with that, Greeny’s Run!

Greeny’s Run is a teeny tiny top-down dungeon survival game. I made it entirely within Gamemaker, with the exception of the app icon and splash screen (done in Photoshop) and the music, “Goat 145 + Stem” by stellarartwars, a creative commons track from ccmixter.

Salvage Trader is on Kickstarter!

ST-promopic640In case you missed it, Salvage Trader is my new 2D space adventure about exploration, trade, building a life for yourself and getting back at the pirates who destroyed your home. A Kickstarter for the game just launched to fund taking Salvage Trader from alpha to release.

Gameplay is built around an open galaxy map, featuring scattered resources, planets to visit and stations to dock at – all of which you explore at your own pace. Enemies will be lurking out there as well, hiding in debris fields or traveling in fleets. Each destination has a built in mini game, like memory puzzles and an arcade like sidescroller, or there is a series of missions you can take on as well.

The story follows the sole survivor from a small colony, destroyed by raiding space pirates. Having lost everything, you set out to join the one organization strong enough to take on these outlaws – the Salvager’s Guild. By upgrading your ship and completing missions, you will eventually take on the very pirate that attacked your home.

Salvage Trader combines many of my favorite elements, from strategy and open exploration to simple arcade fun. All the major features are there, it’s just a matter of making it look and sound good, replacing the placeholder graphics and adding more meat to the bones. That is what I’m hoping this Kickstarter will do.

To support the game and get more information, take a look at the Kickstarter page! Even if you can’t pledge towards the Kickstarter, I appreciate every bit of help getting the word out there. So, please share this with your fellow indie gamer friends.
