Not sure where the inspiration came from on this new banjo tune. I'm not even certain exactly what style it is.

All I know is that playing around in "Graveyard" tuning is yielding strange fruit this week! I'm definitely enjoying the change-up from the tunings I normally play in. So fun to kind of just explore around the frets and see what is lying hidden there.

Here is how a banjo player stays warm in the winter!

This is the second tune I wrote today while watching the snowstorm. I needed to get my blood flowing. Really liking this new tuning and happy how I'm figuring things out in it. The tuning is called "Graveyard."

Here is the story behind creating my new eight player game Octoparty and the custom controllers it uses.

#arduino   #unity   #unity3d   #localmultiplayer
It all started with the primary design goal--a game controller in one hand and a drink in the other--this guiding vision would shape the entire project to come: You see, there was a big party a few months out and I needed to get a game installation together. I'm one of the founding members of the Boston…

Off and on. The last one I completed was actually a one button game (Bunny Dozen, a Frogger variant where you simultaneously control up to 12 bunnies.)

I've been working on a rather complex game lately, but I'm struggling with finding a way to do what I want with Canvas with acceptable performance. Ugh...what the heck were they thinking. I may give in and go with WebGL, even though it means my older computers and iPods won't work with it at all.

I know what you mean about not wanting to clone an existing game. But I find various one button games inspirational, because I see and feel them and figure out ways I'd like to do it differently. And sometimes, there's things which I simply would never have thought of myself. An old Amiga variant of Vic Blitz was a real eye-opener for me. It showed me a way to have shocking depth and puzzle solving from an extremely simple one button game mechanic.

"See how many credits you can earn while scavenging derelicts in robot infested space."

Star Vulture is a remix of one of my larger game prototypes still under development. I focused on taking one of the minigames from the larger project and turning it into a standalone affair over a couple of days just for fun.

This is also my June entry for the "one game a month" challenge.

Hey folks, I've got a new game out on the Android Google Play store! You can play it for free on your Android phone or tablet. If you happen to check it out, it is always a big help if you rated/reviewed the game, thanks!

Also, if you log into the game with your Google Plus account you can submit your score to the global leaderboards and earn achievements.

My top score is about 140k right now, someone come beat me! :)

Once I get everything ironed out using the Android version, I'll be following up with an iOS launch.

Watching the snow come down today through the window while playing my #banjo  in a brand new tuning inspired this slow and pretty tune. I was getting bored with only playing in Open-G and Double-C for the past bunch of years. Trying out a new tuning called "Graveyard." Really like it so far.

I participated in the One Game a Month challenge during 2014 and managed to succeed in making at least one game each month.

Here is a compiled list looking back on all 12 games that I made.

I think my favorite 3 are Cardinal, Square Scare, and In the Black. Well, and of course Octoparty!

Here is my monthly game for October!

Descender is a simple procedural platform game I made in Unity. I was messing around with creating an algorithm for generating a tower-like structure of paths and platforms. This is an action version of a more calm and explorative game I was working on using the tower algorithm.

I timed the level to work around one of my instrumental banjo tracks.

I played a LOT of #banjo  this weekend! Wrote a bunch of new tunes. Snuck upstairs to my soon to be apartment (that is under renovations) to take advantage of the big empty reverb. Uploaded 4 new videos to my YouTube channel (InfiniteBanjo). 

Here is a new instrumental I wrote that's got some get up and go.

Thanks, Joe! Glad you enjoyed it. And yeah, I should totally figure out a way to put some banjo music in my games.

INFINITE BANJO - The name of my new YouTube channel. It's me and my banjo. I posted four videos this morning. Three instrumentals and one song, all my own material. 

Here's the URL for the actual YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/InfiniteBanjo
