The Burd is coming.. sneak peek

Developing games in your spare time is always troublesome when the real-life workload ramps up. And it’s no exception for me right now. But in between insane schedules and family commitments I am ploughing all of my free time into a new arcade action game.

The gorgeous pixel artwork is by Ilija Melentijevic, and we’ve got big plans for a series of games featuring our feathered game hero “Burd Reynolds”. This first outing see’s him rescuing cute green blobs from alien critters. We’re not actually sure why yet, but it’s fun to play all the same :)

Here’s a sneak peak of the game, grabbed from the version I’ve just committed to svn:

Burd Lazor is coming ...

The Burd is coming… during 2009 hopefully, but I should know better than to ever quote dates in a public place :)

    All the stuff in the right-hand GUI is debug info :) We didn’t plan to show any of it in the final game, although the mini map is quite cool, so we may jazz it up a little and keep it in. We’ll see!
