Of all the games you've made, which are you the proudest of?

Just getting conversation going since this board has been a bit slow.

Also, what about the game are you proud of?

How long did it take you?

Were there people you collaborated with for it? If so, what did you each do?

Link / video plz?

In my case:

Of all the games you've made, which are you the proudest of?

One of my game jam games would be the best candidate - probably Light Fantastic. In it, you need to use light balls to illuminate invisible paths and unlock doors to escape a dark, abstract prison.

Also, what about the game are you proud of?

I like to make games that take a genre and add a twist. The twist for Light Fantastic was light balls as the key gameplay element. Everything you do centres around using them. Illuminating invisible geometry, unlocking doors, and jumping incredible heights.

How long did it take you?

48 hours, but I really should go back and add some polish. It needs better direction for what to do, and the environment presents too many mechanics all at once without easing the player into it. Also, falling off a ledge and resetting is disorienting due to the gloom, so it needs to be better handled to show what went wrong and what the consequence is.

Were there people you collaborated with for it? If so, what did you each do?

No, though it'd be nice to get people in for gameplay testing or handling lighting.

Link / video plz?

I made a little rock, paper, scissors game in QBasic in 1994 ish, there where 5 weapons (gun, grenade, shield, laser and ice) with each beating two and losing two. It was all ascii and I had an animation for each combination.

...

It's also the LAST game I finished, procrastination. I still have the 3.5" disk, but no way to load it.

I know those feels, I still used floppy discs in highschool back in 2004. Some fun little games on them that will be lost to the ages.

You can buy an external 3.5" floppy drive for less than $15 from newegg.

I'll correct myself - some fun little games that aren't worth $15 :p thanks though.

Ball:Buster of the two that actually got deployed into the public. I always have pet projects I work on that never see the light of day, and some cool things have been implemented!
