We’re moving hosts due to some horror stories we’ve heard and in order to save some dough.  Domain etc. will all stay the same, but there may be some hiccups over the next week.

Introduction: Minima Bomber is a 7-day game created for August’s Experimental Gameplay project.  It’s a platformer like any Mario game but has destructible terrain like Worms. — What Went Right?

pre-Game Launcher and Updater

A quick 2 day prototype

I was working on our next game project this weekend, when I realized that it would be really nice if all our future games had an automated updater.  This would allow us to release public betas, do cool preorder bonuses, allow players to always have the latest and greatest version, and give us a platform [...]

Minima Bomber: Day 6 Progress

Missiles were added yesterday; there

Another very productive day brings Minima Bomber nearly to completion.  The good news is that the final 2 upgrades were added into the game along with an originally unplanned online highscore database (not 100% done).  Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to really add or code any decent enemy AI, though I was able to add [...]


Minima Bomber: Day 5 Progress
