Christmas in June-ly: A (failed) Gravity Falls game

gravi_falls_canned story map.png

Happy Soos's birthday, everybody! To celebrate, have this, an unfinished Gravity Falls twine game I started for Yuletide one year. It's about Stan and Mabel and Dipper and their crummy made-up holiday. It's an unfinished piece of junk, but I decided to upload it anyway because, well, because...

Emily Short hosted a game jam recently called Bring Out Your Dead, where you uploaded long-dead WIPs and experiments in the hopes that someone else could learn from them. The concept really interested me, and since this was the most well-formed WIP I had that I'd likely never finish, I figured it wouldn't hurt to try something out with it. I took the old, unfinished game and added some commentary to it, usually to point out its flaws, but sometimes to discuss Gravity Falls for a bit (or point out a line I liked). It's a very short game, and probably would have been even if it were completed; I only completed one ending, and the other two branches cut off suddenly. Still, I hope you get something out of it, even if it's just "Don't do what I did here, kids."

(Sergio, my man: I have gotten your message, and while I haven't worked on my Knytt Swap lately, I'll probably block out some time for it next weekend. For reasons.)

All So Green: A Knytt level for St. Patrick's Day

green info.png

For this St. Patrick's Day I thought I'd make a tiny Knytt Story in celebration of the holiday. It's very short, only 4 screens big, and there's no ending, either. Still, I hope you enjoy it, in this season of vaguely green-themed cheer and good will.

(Sergio, I'm working on that thing, okay?)

Climbing Mount Shepard: A short Knytt Stories level

shepard info.png

I ran into a bit of a mental block on this big level I'm working on, so I finished up a level I started a couple days ago. It's called Climbing Mount Shepard. and it's pretty short, so it won't take long to reach the end... or will it? Tileset is Vestiges 2 by Sergio Cornaga.

Another Knytt level: Dark House

dark house info.png

Here is a short level I made while I was working on a larger one. Basically it's a dark maze implemented in Knytt Stories. Very short, as I didn't think I could maintain this kind of thing over a long level. Has a few secrets, including one that might be rather hard to get. (If you get too frustrated with it, you have my permission to just look it up in the editor.)

New Knytt Stories level: At the Zoo

at the zoo info final.png

I donated a custom Knytt Stories level to Spring Thing this year, and now, a few months after the comp finished, the level is done. Special thanks to B Minus Seven for picking the prize!

Anyway, At the Zoo is about Juni searching for her friends at, well, the zoo. It's a pretty short piece (only twenty screens) and there are no challenging bits. Instead it's focused around atmosphere and little overheard snatches of dialogue. Give it a try, I bet you'll like it!

(Music is a shortened version of this track.)

So here's a tiny Knytt Stories level I just finished today. It's called House Key and it's a gloomy little number. Won't take long to play; just remember that you can enter doors by pressing down!

Bad Bang Letter: A Letter for Bad Bang

WARNING: The following letter is written in a deliberately inflammatory way! Please do not read if you are pregnant or might become pregnant.

Anyway, I'm doing this thing called Bad Bang, where you have to write the worst fanfic illustrated by the worst drawings. Because this is an exchange type event, you have to write a letter to the person who was assigned to write for you, so they can get a good read on your likes/dislikes? I didn't, though, or at least not for this exchange. Anyway, I figured at least one person would get a kick outta this, so here it is! Made in Twine, natch.

In case this is necessary, here are the fandoms I requested for Bad Bang:

Advance Wars
Any Character

Homestar Runner
Strong Bad, Strong Sad

Regular Show
Benson

Inferno Cop
Inferno Cop, Hellfire Boy, Mecha Cop

Zone of the Enders series
Cage Midwell

Knytt Stories
Green Chomper, Juni

Batman Beyond
Bruce Wayne, Terry McGinnis

Steven Universe
Greg Universe

Chrono Trigger
Magus, Frog, Robo

Rockman|Mega Man
Any Character

Aaand my vetoes, the all important stuff that the writer can't write for me.

VETOS: noncon/dubcon, underage, explicit sex scenes, incest for Steven Universe.

New Knytt Stories level: A Visit to Grandmother's

So here's a new Knytt Stories level for the people who play that game. It's called A Visit to Grandmother's, and you can guess the plot from the title. It's built around a tune from Two Headed Dino by Ben Bartlett (the tune is, I mean), but I added a short track by Incompetech to the beginning to keep it from being too repetitive. I hope you guys like it!

Waiting in the Rain is a short (about five screens or so) Knytt Story based on a song by Lee Rosevere called Waiting in the Rain. It's about getting to a friend's place in time for dinner, and also the friendship between two women. I hope you like it.

Tiny Cave: a Twine game by me

tiny cave story map.png

Tiny Cave was originally started for a short Twine jam, in both senses of that phrase. You couldn't use more than 1,000 words, which is why everything's so laconic. Anyway, I didn't even get started on this before the jam-thing ended, so this is mostly for my own benefit than anything else. I hope folks enjoy this!
