The awesome GeeksOUT has broken the news, so I am excited to finally tell y’all about the TOP SECRET PROJECT I have been working on for the past 2.5 years.
I’ve been making a video game. NBD. Just… teaching myself programming (starting from absolutely zero knowledge, which was a legit full entire nightmare, but also incredibly gratifying and exhilarating) so I can tell the super-gay love story action RPG of my heart… the one that would have changed my life if I’d had it when I was a kid. The one where I’ve poured all my love for games like Zelda: A Link to the Past and Final Fantasy Adventure into.
SMOKEFALL is a 2D action RPG set in a retro-inspired noir city populated by evil corporations, police corruption, talking animals, and clumsy robots.
And while the game is a long way from finished, the core mechanics are in place and I’ve finally got a fully-playable 15-minute demo up on itch.io for y’all.
I’ll be building toward a crowdfund campaign in a few months, to finish the rest – make sure you sign up for updates on that and other developments.
Thank you so much for taking this weird journey with me!!
