The start of an adventure in HaxeFlixel Game Development! After a busy summer working, I’m back to programming, However, I’ve changed my programming language after getting frustrated with Monkey X and also what looks like a bleak future for it. I’ve always been fascinated by Haxe, as it feels like a really nice language to […]
This was going to be a typical post by me, apologising for the lack of updates and announcing the death of yet another game, but I’ve decided to be positive and turn it into an article of important lessons for an indie game developer. I’ve got a bit demotivated during making the UFO abduction game, […]

Yes, You read the title correctly, Paper cows! I’ve been busy cutting out shapes from pieces of blank paper, scanning them into the computer and then arranging them and colouring them in to create objects for my game. In the development screenshot below, you can see the UFO made out of paper and also a […]
In my UFO game, there will be three main types of objects that can interact with the UFO flying saucer; animals, enemies and plants/buildings (they’re more or less the same). The aim of the game is to abduct the animals and people, while avoiding enemies and trying to not beam aboard any houses or plants […]
I’m working on a small idea, and after a couple of hours work, spread out over two days, I have the following screenshot to show my progress, as you can see it’s going to be a UFO abduction game. more details to come. Keep following me, here or by facebook..
It’s just any old place-holder art at the moment, and there is not functionality, but I’m starting afresh on a new game..
