Hello all you beautiful people. It’s been a while since my last post here. A lot and not that much at all has happened since the last post.

In the last couple of days I’ve been playing with a Facebook app called Dungeons & Dragons: Tiny Adventures. The FAQ describes the gameplay as “intermittent,” which is to say, the designers force to player to go do something else while waiting for the next event to take place.

My team and I have decided to promote the Jumping Bean prototype to full-on game status! We’ve started an eight week production to create a full iPhone game based on the constant jumping theme of Jumping Bean.

Voila! The first of my weekly prototypes. I asked my dad for a theme and he gave me “color.” So after a grand total of one afternoon’s work I came up with Colors! (You’ll need the Unity Web Player plugin to play it.)
Use your mouse to change the color of the ball and the glitter. Moving the [...]
I will be posting weekly game prototypes soon. The purpose of these prototypes is twofold: 1) to quickly try out gameplay ideas in an effort to find something cool that people will enjoy playing and 2) to practice and improve my game development skills.
The idea comes from my time at the Game Developer’s Conference last [...]
