Here’s the latest game I’ve been working on. It’s a wacky field goal challenge featuring multiple levels. Each level is themed like an American Football team each with their own challenges. So for instance the Skulls level features a giant skull which you have to navigate around.

More screenshots and segments to follow in the next few weeks.

Avatar Field Goal is in its final stages of development with an expected release of November 2013.

As Microsoft still haven’t made their advertising SDK available I’ve put PebbleDash WP7 on hold for now.

Instead, I’ve started creating the beginnings of a space strategy game. The basic premise of the game is that there will be planets/asteroids that you can colonise with the aim to take over the solar system. Naturally, there’ll be rival factions with the same goal trying to stop you doing that. You’ll be able to build weapons, turrets and ships to defeat your rivals and expand your empire.

Right now I’ve started out with the renderer trying to come up with the style of the game. To stay with the current indie trends, I’ve decided to go down the voxel route recently popularised by Minecraft. Using cubes to layout my asteroids/planets helps massively with building placement and gives me the opportunity to do things like expanding and destroying sections of the asteroids (including splitting them in half!).

Next up is fleshing out what building types I want and working out how the tech tree fits. I’m planning on this being a relatively fast game to play so I’m aiming for all buildings to be at max tech within about an hour.

Anyhow, on to the screenshots!

Just a heads up that I’m nearing release of PebbleDash on Windows Phone 7. I’m planning on having both a paid and free ad supported versions and it will feature new improved tilesets and additional new levels on top of the Xbox 360 version!

Hopefully will be availble on the Zune marketplace in the next few weeks!

I’m trying out Dreamhost right now as they offer a few more features I want to use that my old providers couldn’t. Everything seems to have migrated over relatively simply so hopefully all is good!

This move gives me a few more options for my upcoming idea which should be available in the next few months. Stay tuned!
