Showcase and Mixer is on tonight!

Just a reminder that the (Perth) Indie Games Scene Showcase and Mixer is on tonight! (7:30pm at The Velvet Lounge in Mount Lawley.)

A few people have inquired about the format for the evening. There will be table-space for local game developers to demonstrate their work. Aside from that, it will be a fairly casual event for good conversations over food and drinks.

There will be brief announcements at 8:00pm to formally kick things off (after people have had a little while to setup), and again at 9:30pm to start winding things down.

Hope to see you there!

Inspired by Chris’ minimalist platformer, I made a minimalist flash game.

I mostly wrote it to learn Haxe (it was my first real Haxe program after “Hello World“), but I quite like it:

I’m drawn to the concept of games that only last a few seconds, are something that you might share with other people, but not anything that you can enjoy repeatedly… kinda like witty comments or lame jokes.

This game is a one-trick pony that gets old immediately. Is that a bad thing?
