I have some longer stuff on the go, but it’s been slow going because of real life day to day commitments. I stumbled across the Bitsy Editor, a tiny compact game editor that lets you make little games with very simple sprites and the ability to add light interaction in the form of text boxes. I’ve had fun playing some of the games made with it, and I may come back and do a mini blog about them at some point because there are some really good ones.
Despite only being a few screens long I’ve been working on ” The Power is still on” for a few weeks in snatched moments of time. I wanted to try and recreate some of the feelings I used to get by rummaging through my Dad’s huge suitcase of Spectrum games. I often had no idea what any of them were and they seemed fairly strange and mysterious, and I feel often had a weird very British sense of melancholy. I did sort of go with a gameboy colour palette though.
