Taxi By Night

A noir game where a vampire drives a taxi in the streets of New Wenders.

MenuTaxi

You play as the taxi driver, and get to talk with the passengers through a series of branching dialogues.

Choices

Ultimately, you can choose whether you want to take them to their destination or feed on them.

Blood

Taxi By Night was made in 5 days for #VampireJam, so it’s very small in scope, I used it mostly to learn a bit of 3d development. The game will be updated with more story bits 🙂

All 3D models are from Quaternius. You can get them for free on his website and support him on patreon.

Jan-Ken-PRO! #AGBIC

This game was created in 2 weeks for “A Game By It’s Cover” game jam, on itch.io.

The idea for this game was to take the concept of the classic “Rock, Paper, Scissors” game and try to do something cool and different, so the first thing that came to my mind was “what if the players have to throw big stones with the Rock/Paper/Scissor shapes at each other?”.

So we tried to think about it as if it were a kind of Sport, with spectators and all, something that would be like a mixture of Sumo and Jan-Ken-Po.

The game respects the rules of Jan Ken Po, so if a player holding a “Rock” stone hits a player holding a “Scissor” stone, the one holding the Rock will win. If one player holding a stone hits a player who is not holding any stones, the player holding the stone wins, regardless of the stone. The first player to win 2 rounds, wins the game.

You can download the game on itch.io, if you do, let us know what you think, and what you would like to see improved or added =)

The GameJam itself is based on the Famicase Exhibition that takes place in Japan every year, where artist draw the cover art for games that don’t exist. So basically the only rule is that you have to choose one of these covers and make a game based on it. This is the now we chose:

Yokai Mask! (Cyprus Game Day II GameJam)

This past weekend we participated on a local GameJam in Limassol, Cyprus. The game jam lasted 48 hours, and the theme was Japan. Another requisites included using Microsoft Azure platform, Unity3D and some kind of multiplayer or leaderboards.

We tried to steer away from the most common themes like Ninjas and Samurais, so our entry was called Yokai Mask, inspired by the traditional Japanese masks used in dances and theater.

In Yokai Mask you play as a little girl who has to avoid and trick the Yokai by using masks that make her look like them. Another think we wanted was to create a game without combat, so instead of killing your enemies you must avoid them or drive them away, making it more of a puzzle platform than action.

Since we were very happy with the result we intend to polish the game a bit more, do a better level design and make it a bit longer. The game also got 2nd place on the Game Jam.

Entry for #1BitClickerJam

Long time no post!

I made a small game for the #1BitClickerJam, did not have a lot of time to put into it, but thankfully the Game Jam was 2 weeks long, so I managed to finish the basic functionalities  I wanted for this game.

I had this idea on my mind for a long time, so when I heard about the game jam I thought it would be a great opportunity to finally get it done. The main idea was to use all the mindless/endless clicking to draw a parallel to the stupidity of wars in general.

 

I am not an artist, and this was my first time trying to draw pixel art, so it really sucks. I probably should have gone for more of a minimalistic style, specially for the soldiers.

Anyway, the game is on Itch.io, check it out if you’re interested, let me know if you manage to beat it. After the game jam is over I’ll update to make it playable on the browser, and probably fix and add a few things.
