Ludum Dare game - Tycoon
I completed my fifth entry in the Ludum Dare game competition last weekend. I wasn't sure about how fun it was at first, but it seems to be garnering a mostly positive reception. Either that, or the LD judges are just being kind, which I think sometimes hap...

Results over Four Ludum Dare competitions
I just got the ratings for my Ludum Dare competition game, Domain, written from scratch in 48 hours last month. They were good - this is the second-best finish for me in the ratings, I think. I was curious how I compared, so I did some graphs with my four e...

Ludum Dare 37 - Domain
I competed in Ludum Dare #37 in December, where you create a game from scratch in 48 hours. This was a rough one - it came right at the end of the semester, which is tricky, and it was also happening right after my wife had surgery, so I was focused on her ...

Wow, it's been a long time. But I'm back, and let's kick the dust off this blog. I've been working this summer on a project I first started way back in 2006 or so, which is a word game based on anagrams. It's been through several iterations, first as one of...

Anybody who plays and rates my new quest, I'll do the same for you.  Mine is Untarl's Summoning Circle, code NW-DN5LVIRKC.  It's short (about 20 minutes).  Let me know what you think - thanks.

I just made my first quest, The Undercooked God.  I was trying for a bit of a story, some humor and some puzzle solving.  I published it a few days ago, but it's had no plays at all (other than me), so I was hoping to get some folks to test it out and let me know what you think.  The mission took me about 15 minutes, but of course I know how to complete it, didn't have to read the dialog, and knew what choices to make, so I'd expect it to be 25 minutes for somebody brand new to it.

The code is NW-DUO5WGKXI - let me know what you think.  I'm happy to reciprocate reviews/testing.

Thanks - 
Dave
