I’ve just launched Spaceslingers on both the itch.io and GameJolt platforms! It took me quite awhile to gut the Steamworks integration out of the game and build my own online leaderboard for the platforms, but it’s done (well, it was done a little while ago, but I’ve been super busy and haven’t had time to […]

Creating A Delivery

I’ve made a full video of me creating a level: As I said in the description of the video, I think creating a delivery is quite an interesting problem.

Setting A Launch Date (And Soon!)

Well…I guess I should’ve been advertising this before now, but I wasn’t 100% sure I’d be able to get past the finish line in time. Now that I’m only 90% sure I won’t, I guess the time has come. Launch has been set for 17th of November, 2020 PST (that’s 18th of November, 2020 in […]

A New Demo Appears!

Download it and play here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1369800/Spaceslingers/ I’m feeling a lot of things right now.

Launching a Steam Page

Well, after making the trailer and getting some feedback on it, I’ve launched my Steam page. Probably a solid 2 weeks worth of work purely devoted to getting everything up and running with that. It’s a nerve-wracking kinda thing, as we all know that something like 90% of games (especially indie games) make basically no […]
