Bridge Construction Chaos

Monday, July 13th, 2020

You have a magical sky crane, and a construction job to do. But the traffic hasn’t been stopped. You’ll just have to work around them I  guess. Don’t worry if a few innocents end up  in the water in the process. I’m almost sure they can swim.

  • – Controls are all on an XBox controller, and are shown  in game.
  • – Features 6 incredibly detailed challenging  levels.
  • – No winching the cars to the goal. Your mum didn’t raise you to be a cheat!
  • – Built by a team of one, in about a day and a half. For the GMTK Games Jam.

No need to complete levels if you don’t want to. You can skip back and forth as much as you like.

This was my entry to the second largest games jam in the world. Well over 5000 entries from over 18000 participants! It ranked in the top 20% of entries, with a top 10% rating for fun. I’ll take that as a win, especially as this was my first completed jam since my brain surgrey. I tried to enter GMTK in September 2018, but had to sleep for several days after just 3 hours of work on it! I had to sleep for several days after this too, but I got to the end and made it a proper entry in the jam.

Check out the game on deeperbeige.itch.io to view the trailer/walkthrough videos, or download it to play for free if you have an XBox controller.

W.A.V.E

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

W.A.V.E robots are sent out to explore strange new lands, far from home. When they arrive, they connect via virtual reality to a human helper. You are that human!

First person VR is amazing, but it’s not the only thing you can do with a Rift. This game explores a 3rd person platformer using the touch controller for movement and aiming.

  • – Designed for (mostly) seated play.
  • – Requires an Oculus Rift with a single Touch controller.
  • – Adapts for left or right handers.
    • (Press the A or X button to choose in-game)
  • – Graphics mostly created in virtual reality, using SculptrVR.

Built for the Global Games Jame 2017, mostly just by me, in under 48 hours. The main robot and enemy models are by the amazing Aaron Hicks.

If you have the hardware, download to play for free!
