I made a new game!

I made a new game!

I usually spend my weekends working on Armed with Wings. That’s where I sink in most hours. Last weekend I didn’t work on Armed with Wings, sadly… However… I did compete in the #IndiesVsGamers GameJam with my artist buddy Alex Falconer! A Jam that lasted 72 hours! Alex and managed to produce one of the BEST games I’ve ever made – in my most humble opinion. I present to you…. Motorcade It’s a top down escort shooter. Your a biker with a gun, and your one job is to protect the VIP limo – don’t let enemy destroy it! Grab some xbox controllers and 4 buddies for ultimate fun. We are extremely happy with how this game turned out. Please play it, and if you like it give it a ‘5’ on GameJolt. Check out the game on www.motorcadegame.com Give it a ‘5’ on GameJolt Anyways… I did have a chance to work on Rearmed before this Jam began. I decided I’m going to focus on levels for the coming update. I’ve already begun adding more to level 5! The level is already x4 bigger than before. I hope to add more treatment to other levels, and maybe get some new levels in too for the next update. For now, this is...

Update 0.7.4 ‘Leaps’ onto Steam!

Update 0.7.4 ‘Leaps’ onto Steam!

I’m sure most of you have noticed that there is no ‘jumping’ in Rearmed, at least in the traditional platformer sense. Some players have even expressed their interest in having a jumping feature implemented. I was hesitant at first, because introducing jumping this late in development would break some of the level design. But perhaps if I took a new approach to jumping that would serve to enhance combat – I’d be able to satisfy players and myself! And so… Now you can Leap and perform Aerial Attacks! This is how it works: Perform the roll by Blocking and hitting Left or Right, continue to hit Left or Right to Leap, then again, and again! Here’s how it looks: You can now attack in the air too! Very helpful for executing technical combos. Try attacking during rolls and the various jumps. Here’s a combo I prepared earlier: Here’s the full update list: Updates • Roll/leap • Air attacks • Edge grabs • Roll attacks Fixes & balancing • Camera zoom in air • Attacks on moving platforms • Up Power Strike • Various bugs The next update may not focus on any single aspect as I want to lift the quality of the entire experience. Expect many of the loose ends to be fixed in the next two...
