#PROCJAM 2017

Last week I participated in #PROCJAM, an annual game jam hosted on itch.io now in it’s fourth year. The premise of Proc Jam is simple, make something that makes something. Most people make some for of procedural software but physical games and toys are also encouraged. If you haven’t tried procedural generation before as a part of game development I’d highly encourage it, and Proc Jam is an excellent time to do so.

Anyway, what do I do? Well, I made this racing game with procedurally generated racetracks and called it #PROCJAM Racer.

CanaFez – Noisy neighbours

This is something that’s been in the current build for a little while now but I thought I’d make a full post here since, well, I’ve been a bit neglectful in regards to posting updates / features about CanaFez on this site.

Plus it’s a good excuse as any to post some new pictures of the game. LOOK AT THESE PICTURES OF MY VIDEO GAME!

CanaFez (working title)

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on a personal project outside of a game jam or university project, so I thought it high time to jump back into game development once again and try my hand at a new project… CanaFez is a blend between the excellent rooftop runner Canabalt and the world rotation mechanics from Fez.
