collect coins!!

Last Game of the Decade 2019 (Last GOTD 2019)

gotd2.png

Hidden object game.

Way more detail in this one. More to collect, more types of thing to collect, items, quests, more characters, locked doors, more variety in places... I started this all the way back in March and I think this is one of my best. I've been developing it in secret for ages. Months of work has gone into it. Even after starting it so early, it still came down to the wire. Hope you enjoy it!

Mementos® Mori

Screen Shot 2019-10-22 at 7.59.08 PM.png

I wanted to make something for the "Pre-fright Check-in" jam but I started late and didn't work very hard. It's just an old-skool website, really, and some things I find scary to think about. Death and existence, you know. Here's the frame I wrote for the game:

In 1999 the Perfetti Van Melle corporation, in collaboration with the Baudelaire estate, ran a promotion called "Mementos® Mori." The promotion consisted of a limited edition naphthalene flavor of their popular mentos® candy called "Ail-mints." Printed on the inside wrapper of each such roll of "Ail-mints" was a depressing tidbit meant to "chill the very soul of the reader as that ... peppermint candy chills their taste buds."

A promotional website was also created, featuring some examples of text from the promotion, as was the style at the time. A miserable failure, the website was quickly scrubbed from the mentos® website and was never mentioned again. Recently a copy of it turned up on a CD-ROM among the possessions of the late Mr Guy Dupré. He was believed to be 82 at time of passing and was survived by no immediate family.

The restored website is shown above.

Sylpheez®

screenie.png

Just in the nick of time! This took a lot longer than I expected.

So this is a silly little 1 player paper & pencil adventure game about collecting loot. It's sort of a mixture of Gacha games, the slow and steady progress of MMOs, and a little bit of crafting-y puzzle-y things. In trying to research Gachapon design techniques I discovered Shopkins and was horrified, so I had to channel their hyper commercialized aesthetic a little bit.

There's two uploads- a PDF that's good for reading (the pages are in order), and a PDF that's for printing (the pages are collated like a booklet). Theoretically, it should print onto 5 8.5x11" pages, double sided, but I haven't tried it yet.

P.S. if you read the "Reading" PDF - try to put it into the "pages side by side" mode!

Love from ya boy,
Marek

What is a video game?

imagine.PNG

'What is a video game?' is a prediction of what future game developers will accept as videogames (well at least the games as art movement). It's about showing you SOME of the steps or movements in game development that developers in the future will work towards and pass.

_________________________________________________________________________
Ultimately it's about showing how fundemental elements of what we
think a videogame needs COULD be broken down
_________________________________________________________________________

I was working on this for some time and stopped around 2 months ago.
All that was really left was to finish off the last section of the context/commentary and pretty all of it up by putting it in a pdf and making it easier to read but I've lost my motivation to finish that off right now. So in the future I may do it but just in case I dont I am uploading it now.

Home R Where The Heart Is

HomeR.png

check out the web version on your phone!

for global game jam
the theme was what home means to you
i saw a lot more serious/narrative games this year
seems like a bad idea because people will probably "not go all the way"
or go part of the way just to be evocative
or to be real twee or whatever
though, some of the games that I had liked this year were the more heart warming ones

at home, when my family celebrates christmas,
we put a black santa on top of the tree
i found out recently that my grandma painted him black so he would look like my grandpa

these sprites are mostly color edited to look black
there is a history of black bart bootleg memorabilia
parallels with my black santa
in many of these shirts there will be multiple black barts all crowding around
sometimes all hitting on a woman with a big butt
one of my favorites was my former roommate's boyfriend's shirt that she would wear
it had multiples of different looking barts in a roller coaster
and it says "Bébé's Kids" which is a 90's animated comedy about a black family
that doesn't look anything similar to the simpsons

the sprites i edited are from the konami simpsons arcade beat em up
when the simpsons touch each other, sometimes they do their team attacks
i added a homer strangling bart animation
i was surprised this classic motif from the simpsons,
of homer strangling bart was not in the arcade game at all
i added this in place of having homer and bart's team attack

the sounds are primarily from click team fusion's free sound library
with the exception of a vocal recording of "fuck off mom"
