A game in a day

A lot of our friends have had some success with producing a game in a day, but it's always something we thought neither of us could do as we fanny around far too much.

Late Saturday I had an idea for a simple game that I though could be fun, so around 18 hours or so later ( Spread over a couple of days, yeah misleading title I know ) I got the Flex compiler to belch out this:

Chock a Box

As you can see not only have I cropped the edge of it badly ( Which is driving me insane already ) but it's got more than a hint of Q*Bert to it. It's just some simple retro fun, not the best game I'll ever make, but it's pretty nice.

The main sprite, Mr Packing Box, was drawn without a single thought that I'm moving house this Friday, a totally subconscious choice.

Let's see how it goes in terms of sponsorship, it'll be good if it pays for itself.

    Looks pretty neat for a game in a day, I'm pretty sure you can get a worthwhile bid on it. I dig the isometric style with the Q*Bert look, good stuff. Good luck with the game, I'm sure it'll do well.

    Cheers guys.

    No bids yet, but it's early days and even if it doesn't sell it's no loss in the grand scheme of things, it can be used as a self sponsored title further down the line.

    Nice little game, Squize! I would love to plat in a GYW virtaul arcade made up "Rich and Olli"'s 24 hour arcade fun games...pipe dream, but still a dream
