During the last two weeks there’s been a Retro Game Jam on itch.io
The aim was to make a game for a retro platform. No limits or themes.
So I decided to write a VZ200 game using the Multi-Platform Arcade Game Designer I helped port to the VZ200 some time ago.
There’s a Cassette 50 charity competition for the Commodore 64 computer at the moment. Games are based on the original ‘cassette 50’ idea where you got 50 games but they were very small and not very good quality. They went for quantity instead!
Vinny has let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. The Commodore 64 game I was developing is called Toxic Frenzy! It’s based on a Game and Watch game called “Oil Panic“. In this one, however, it’s toxic waste liquid you’re catching in a bucket. Drop it into the barrel carried by the man below and don’t spill it on the customers waiting outside.
I’ve been looking for a new MMO to play and decided to check out Guild Wars 2. I had no idea it’s Free To Play (to an extent) and so I was pleasantly surprised to learn this. I always thought you pay for the core game and then you can play. Nice.
I created a character and named him Mochau. I wanted to use the word ‘mocha’ in the name since it’s my favourite coffee type haha. I was going for “Mochai” but it was taken. I decided “Mochau” is pronounced “Mo’ cow”! We need more cowbell haha. He’s a Norn Guardian.
