forgot about blogs

i haven't done any blogging lately, mostly because i have been busy working on video games! This is going to be short though - i have two games in the works and pretty soon there will be some actual content worth blogging about... Maybe.

swine flu zombie rampage

This is Swine Flu Zombie Rampage! i made this game back in 2009 using MIT's Scratch. It is the first game that i ever made (unless you count playing with RPG Maker as a kid!) so it's more of a learning experience than a full game. It's seriously cheesy but i feel obligated to share it because video games are awesome! Anyone can learn how to make games with the amazing technology out there, and this was my very first step.

It's embarrassingly basic, but i hope you enjoy it anyways! You play as a dude who shoots swine flu zombies in a post apocalyptic city. The goal is simple: stay alive for as long as possible.

Play Swine Flu Zombie Rampage!

wrong color blocks must die

i released my first game today - Wrong Color Blocks Must Die! It's on Newgrounds and totally free for anyone to play it. It's a retro arcade inspired SHMUP game with unending randomly generated waves of block enemies to blast!

Seriously cutting edge, right?

This is my first ever published game and it shows! But i'm still very proud of it. i actually made this game back in college to teach myself some basic javascript. i found it on an old hard drive and spent the past two weeks making it into a fully playable game that was polished enough for me to release.

The game is very simple in terms of gameplay - shoot the enemy blocks! A combo system keeps it interesting, keep the killstreak going to rack up a multiplier. As you get more kills the difficulty ramps up and more enemies will spawn. It keeps going until you run out of lives.

i chose to use very simplistic graphics with fun color scheme. Everything is very blocky and easy to understand. You are an orange block and the teal blocks are the baddies. The background is made up of purple shades, complete with parallax scrolling for less-boring-and-more-snazzy visuals.

The most fun was making the music! i grew up playing Nintendo and Sega and i love the chiptune sounds from those old systems. i made a minimalist beat to go along with my simple game using some VST plugins made to emulate retro computer sound processors.

Anyways, i hope you like it. The random enemy spawning and combo system make for a pretty fun game to kill a couple of minutes with. Give it a try and let me know what you think, feedback is also super appreciated! Thank you so much!

started a blog

Blogs are neat and now Anarchy Softworks has one - i'll use this platform to give updates on the games and apps i'm working on.

i started Anarchy Softworks LLC last year because i wanted to make a living creating awesome video games. i'm doing everything by myself, this allows me to have total artistic freedom in whatever i choose to do. This also means the going is slow and it will take a very long time to make any progress. This blog will serve as a cool way to share things along the way. i have a small free-to-play game in the works, along with a much larger project that has been in the making for about a year.

More to come soon
