Herder – now in Flash

Herder, a one button game, now in Flash! I haven’t posted anything in a very, very long time, and I apologize for this.

I would like to apologize for not being able to post in a very long time. The schoolyear’s about to end here in Manila, and there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. I needed a break, so I came up with this very simple demo of particle effects for Pygame, […]

Finishing a game…

Over at the Indiegamer forums, they’re running a thread asking what everyone is currently working on. I’ve decided to participate: Basically, the objective here is to prevent the characters from falling by catching them with the flying creature at the bottom edge of the screen, which you control.
