This is part of “A Look Back On My Old Games“.
Title: Vegas Undercover
Date: January 2009
Notes: Based on the 2D platformer tutorial for Game Maker by Yoyo Games. Pretty much a copy-paste mechanically, with different sprites and selfmade level design. Not a great game, but a first game never is. Also only has three “levels”.
Title: Sanko Draw
Date: February 2009
Notes: An MS Paint knock-off, only worse and with music (Canon in D major, I was obviously very artsy back then). Better programming than Vegas Undercover, but still quite bad.
Date: May 2009
Notes: The first “full-sized”, finished game. The player controls are horrible and the game is a bit buggy and vague. The first game I made with an actual story.
Title: World Creation
Date: June 2009
Notes: A 2D platformer (sandbox), a bit more original than Vegas Undercover. Allows for the creation of your own levels.
Title: Age of Time
Date: July 2009
Notes: A sandbox game based on typical strategy games. Not sure which game inspired me here. There are only simple “missions” and you can build what you want, as there are no resources. There is a very simple, purely decorative day-night cycle. There are only 4 buildings you can build (house, farm, castle and senate).
Title: Boll Bros
Date: September 2009
Notes: Second full-length game. A 2D platformer inspired by (guess what?) Mario Bros and Sonic. Has four stages (Sunny Woods, Lunar Mountains, Water Temple, Anti Dote’s Lab) with four (just about harmless) bosses. The only boss that actively tries to harm you is the final boss, Doctor Anti Dote. You can play the whole game as one of the three characters: Boll, Firey and Black (truly inspiring names, I know). There is however never any cooperation between them.
Title: Eraith and the Crystals of Doom
Date: November 2009
Notes: One of my first (published) games in a long line of unfinished games. Inspired by the dark crystals in “Spyro: A Hero’s Tail” and “The Legend of Zelda”. An RPG.
