From an early age, both me and my twin brother always wanted to make our own video game and have it released. It almost actually happened but unfortunately the stars didn’t align for us. In the end the whole experience put us off working together for most of our young adult lives. Here’s our story. […]

If you’ve been following this blog from the beginning then you may remember a game I started working on called Croc & Dare. It was a collaborative effort between myself and talented illustrator, Steve Koren. Unfortunately neither of us could find the time to get it beyond the early concept stages and as the years […]

My five year-old nephew wants to be a ‘game inventor’ when he grows up. He’s got all sorts of mad ideas for games he’s gonna make including one where Sonic the Hedgehog teams up with the robots from Pacific Rim to kick Doctor Eggman’s ass. Sounds awesome! Not one for waiting around though, wee Freddy […]

If you’ve been following my blog recently you may have seen my WebGL experiments that featured some cute game characters that had been created by my buddy Alex. Well those characters were from a game he was working on called Corgi Warlock, and the good news is that it’s now available to purchase on Steam! […]

If you’re using the Flash platform, or any other development platform for that matter, to build your own games then hopefully you’ll find some inspiration here. If you’re just looking for a few games to play then I don’t think […]

I’ve come across quite a number of Adobe AIR games over the last few months so thought it was about time I did another round-up. There’s actually too many AIR games out there these days, particularly on mobile, so unfortunately I can’t cover them all. However here’s five that caught my eye for one reason […]

It used to be the case I’d have to actively go looking for desktop and mobile games written in AIR, but these days they aren’t that hard to find. Personally I think it shows AIR’s increasing strengths as a games (and mobile in particular) development platform. Anyway, here are few games that really show the […]

When it comes to mathematics I’m really a bit of a dunderheid. Thankfully for coders like me who should really have been paying attention at high school and university, Keith Peters (AKA @bit101) has started an excellent series of video tutorials explaining the maths that you need to understand as a programmer. Personally I think […]

It’s been a few months since I last showed off Bunny Vengeance. Well here’s the latest version of the prototype and as you can see from the video it’s looking much more complete. The most obvious change is the addition of the Boss – previously you were just fighting a clone of yourself. Blocking punches […]
