Vampire Attack 2 Release 1.0

While I would have liked to do a bit more fine tuning, Vampire Attack 2 is now finished. At least until next year when I open up the source. I might do a fine tuning pass for the open source release. I will release a strategy guide probably next month. While I would like to provide more details, my copy of Windows 7 has finally arrived and Ubuntu 9.10 was released today so I have a lot of installing to do.

One of those Weeks episode 36 Open Source Release

The open source release of OotW 36 has been released.  This means that October will not be having an episode of Dozen Days of Words. I haven't even started it, though have a good idea about what will be done. I am focusing on my Christmas game which will be 3 episodes and will probably start being released in November with a new episode every other week just like Vampire Attack 2.

Vampire Attack 2 Beta 2

The second beta version of Vampire Attack 2 has been posted to the Blazing Games site. I still have a level to complete and a lot of fine tuning to do to the game but there are two weeks before it is going to be released so hopefully the final version will meet my original goals for this game. To be honest, the second episode was created twice since the original map didn't work well with the simple AI that the bats and skeletons have. Sometimes it is far easier to re-design the level than to make the AI better.

Making One of those Weeks Chapter 35 posted

The arcade based dream sequence that makes up One of those Weeks episode 35 is covered in this weeks posting of Chapter 35 of One of those Weeks. This is the episode where you dream of being in a space ship surrounded by blue screens of death. When you blast them with your laser, they divide into four smaller blue screens. If you blast them until they are small enough, you can destroy them. While the source code was opened up last month, I have had too many other good things to release so the chapter has been delayed quite a while. The open source releases and making of chapters are being used as filler which I will release when nothing more substantial is ready.

It is Thanksgiving this weekend. At least in Canada. While I have plans, I still hope to have enough time to do episode 10 of Dozen Days of Words. If I do finish it, then it will be the game released after part two of Vampire Attack next week. If it is not finished then expect the open source release of One of those Weeks episode 36.

Vampires attack again

The original Vampire Attack game was released a few years ago for Halloween. When it was released I asked people on the game page to let me know if they would like to see an extended version of the game. While the game was going to be called Vampire Attack Deluxe, the new version of the game has substantially been re-written so I decided that it really was a new game. I still have work to do on the game, but felt that the game was far enough along that I could release the first episode of the game as a beta. I will be releasing the second episode (probably also a beta) on the 16th and will be releasing the final episode just before Halloween.
