platonic football '99

platonic football 01.PNG

well,
what to say?
after 98 iterations of "platonic football" i can only say that "platonic football '99" will be my final take on this game. i am aiming for perfection this time.

this is true football. in its platonic, ideal way.

yesterday evening i did a first, loose take on player movements, not quite happy how it came out... so today i will figure out how to individualize each player, to give them more unique movement patterns.

stay tuned...

tl;dr: a two player football game

Bedtime Adventure Update

Bedtime screenshot4.png

I've updated my game Bedtime Adventure! Changes include:

-Four more things to do before going to bed!
-Expanded alpaca content!
-A new title screen, drawn by me, that doesn't have the title cut off by the menu! (Because I forgot to draw it, whoops.)
-A couple more things in the room, mostly to help with blocking
-Advertised 5-10 minute playtime now more accurate than generous
-Changed a bit of Larry's speech to more accurately reflect the true meaning of art
-And other miscellaneous tweaks.

Please let me know if there are any issues, or you just hate the new changes, or whatever.

three dimensions

i had a goal of wanting to play every game on g.t. from the beginning of 2018 until i couldn't do it anymore. lol. i started off well, but then kinda faltered.

so i realized that i'm playing all of the 3d games, but not all of the 2d games. !!

one of my favourite things about videogames is being able to experience a place that cannot exist in real life. having a first person perspective is the best way to achieve immersion (imo), so i prefer that.. but also, it's because i just love all of the stuff that comes with 3d: polygons, lighting, shadows, draw distance (i actually like that lol), etc. of course 2d can do that too! this also means, typically, that i prefer 2.5d over 2d.

i don't know why, but representing 3d on a screen is just the coolest thing to me. and it's not always about realism, i just really really really gravitate toward it for reasons i don't understand.

my favourite style is low poly. it's definitely not because of nostalgia. i think more abstract designs with less detail affects me more viscerally than anything realistic. this early castlevania 64 model is what i'm talking about, i still think about how eerie it is once in awhile, ever since the day i saw it in egm or whatever!

what's funny is that most of my art in school was 2d, i couldn't really work well in 3d, i'm not good with my hands. but i'm just really obsessed with 3d, though there's plenty of rad cool 2d stuff out there!

(:

look here's the deal

i haven't made any video games, but i * have * written music for video games: https://lillyan.bandcamp.com/album/100. i'm friends with everythingstaken and ihavefivehat.

200 plays on Birthday Simulator!

200 plays award.png

Wow! I can't believe so many people played this game!
Shoutout to everyone on itch, GT, and IFDB for the love and support. I never thought I'd be famous.
Also thanks TheCakeFlavor for making this picture lol.

More garbage is on the way. Not anytime soon. But it is. Be afraid.
