Lunar Lemurs - Jay Armstrong Games

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls I am proud to announce the release of ‘Lunar Lemurs’! A new super cute game designed by me and my girlfriend (now fiancé!) Fiona. Help Mada and Saha rejoin their family as they travel across a moonlit jungle in search of the land of the Tsingy.

The game was inspired by our trip to Madagascar a couple of years ago. Lemurs are endemic to the country and are really quite amazing creatures. We saw a number of them and Fiona had been working on a children’s book starring them. For one reason another she had less and less time to work on her idea until I suggested we work on a game together. It was fun coming up with ideas and it was certainly her influence that led to a ‘cuter’ vibe for the game then I usually have.

This game is a lot like Fire boy and water girl, in that you control both characters at the same time – so for best results play with a friend! It definitely makes it a lot more fun, and creates plenty of chances to mess with your partner!

For those interested in the technical side of it, it uses the platforming engine I am using for Super Adventure Pals 2 and the particle system I created for Epic Time Pirates.

The particles work by drawing a series of vector animations in to bitmaps and then pushing them to an array. There is one ‘canvas’ for all the particles, it updates each frame and draws the appropriate bitmap image in the appropriate position, which allows for loads of effects at pretty fast speeds (for flash at least!).

Any questions please do drop me a comment. I’d love to know how people feel about the game.

Play it here.

Escape To Hell – new game coming soon!

 

I have been working on a really fun game with Rob Donking of Bad Viking Games . He’s made a tonne of games, all of which are awesome and this is no exception! This game is a sort of dungeon runner with a bit of a twist. If you combined Binding of Isaac with Hotline Miami and then set the game in hell, you’d have this! I’ve really enjoyed working with Rob, not just because he is a sound guy, lives round the corner from me, is an extremely competent programmer but also because I’ve been able to steer clear of all programming and simply do the art work. I haven’t written a line of code and it feels great! The game is now finished and we are looking for sponsorship. I’ll be making a game play trailer so check back in a couple days and I’ll have it posted up. Until then here are some screenshots:

And here is a scene from the intro movie. You have been thrown out of your home by an unspeakable evil and must battle your way back through the under world to have your revenge!

Zombinsanity Jay Armstrong Games Miniclip Interview

Hey guys, Zombinsanity launched on Miniclip! We made extensive changes to the game on their request and really feel like this version is vastly improved!

I sat down to do an interview with them as well, which was a huge amount of fun. Read it here: http://blog.miniclip.com/2014/04/19/miniclip-interview-zombinsanity-creator-jay-armstrong/

We also did a video interview over skype. Watch Miniclip wrack my brains about Zombinsanity, Indie Game Development and even Super Indie Pals!

I also came across this cool video review:

Another awesome review video! Honoured to get a ‘hot’ rating from the reviewer.
