FRESH MEAT!

Porker, The Quest For Independence

A couple of months ago, I took a stab at indie game development, having released small game called, Porker: The Quest for Tastiness.  It’s a silly game with a ridiculous premise; become the tastiest pig possible!

It only met the barest definition of a game; it had objectives, levels, a scoring system, win and lose conditions. Nevertheless, those who played it really got a kick out of it, and I enjoyed watching other people enjoy it…sounds a bit voyeuristic, I know, but bare with me :)…

Encouraged by the positive feedback I’d gotten, I decided to beef of the game into what I considered a more complete project:

  • Added more levels, additional enemies and power ups
  • Tripled the score system
  • Included several secrets including bonus stages and puzzles within them
  • Created a complex end boss with challenging AI
  • Setup a menu/pause system and volume controls
  • Made 4 possible endings depending on whether you beat the final boss, and what score you attained when doing so

You can buy a digital copy of the game on GameJolt for $0.99. I hope that this and other projects I will continue to crank out will allow me to earn a living doing this.

Try it yourself, and let me know what you think!

SPAM, meet Lead!

It’s amazing how soon comment spammers start creeping in so soon after a fresh site’s creation! While I give them a ‘D’ for determination, I’ve setup enough of these to know how to handle them…
