Bitches don't know bout my vorticons


So i couldn't think up a game for this one
Kind of like a "where are they now"
And it was kind of obvious to me that if Keen has a yorp
then McMire should own a garg but then i felt maybe
he should own a shockshund as it's more doglike
so he owns both because whatever

Free Game Dev Resources

For those of you undecided of your (next?) game-dev tool of choice, this website may help:


Personally, I'm not motivated enough to learn actual coding or an honest-to-goodness programming language, so easy-to-use SDKs like MMF2 (CT Fusion nowadays) have been my go-to for about 10 years now. I think I'm gonna pick up one of these FPS engines and see what kind of interesting stuff I can do with them... Lots of open-source and no-cost art tools in there as well.

Have fun, folks! :D

Sergio's Games plot inventory

Inspired by mcc and L, I have compiled a list of plot goals for all games I have released (collaborations included). Games are arranged in roughly chronological order. Games that can be considered domination fantasies or where killing something is the primary goal are presented in blood red. Borderline or flimsy cases are presented in dark red. Let me know if you disagree with any of the synopses or categorisation.

EDIT: I read ella guro's original tweet and came up with a slightly different interpretation. So now you'll also find a * next to games that I feel reject or punish the player's attempts at mastery.

Fruit Bomb Future Counter

Game File: 

Another game inspired purely by a funny-looking sprite. I put a lot less thought into this than my previous games, but I finished ten minutes before the deadline which seems rather amazing right now.

It turned out funnier than expected. (I didn't expect it to be funny whatsoever)

Baby games

So my son turned one year old yesterday! We got him a videogame console for babies.

Now I dare you to look at that thing and not immediately think "Baby Pop'n Music." It is obvious that the giggly Baby Einstein "smartridges" (Seriously! That's what they call them!) are only of limited interest. I'd originally thought that it might be interesting to write software directly for the unit, but it soon became clear that I would have to do a LOT of reverse engineering work -- something I don't have the time or experience to do properly before my son grows out of the thing.

Then I realized that the interesting thing is not the system itself, but the controller. The controller is a very simple IR transmitter, like a remote control. And you can pick up IR receivers for PCs for under $10 on eBay.

So if I pick one of these things up, and write a simple program to convert these IR signals to keystrokes, I could very well make videogames for my 1-year-old son in Klik & Play. For that matter, so could all of you! Kirk just DID!

You guys, you have no idea how exciting it is to think that you could make toys for your child that aren't obnoxious. Every toy on the market has a sound chip in it that talks to my son in a sing-song voice about how fun counting is, and about how fun the alphabet is, and about how fun opposites are, and about how fun manners are. They repeat themselves endlessly. They stunt the imagination. Some of them even tell my son they love him. I have inanimate objects in my house that tell my son they love him!

I can do better. This is my next project.
