Spent the last week working on a game for programming jam.
Making great progress, with one day remaining.
This will also be an accessible game.
I'll add to this site tomorrow once I've added the finishing touches.
Now up to 20 accessible games. Making excellent progress. Was hoping to make a game every month, working out as over one game per week. Made a few Christmas themed games to keep it seasonable.
In less than a month I've managed to create 15 mini one button controllable games. Now working on some larger more complex games.
Should still be able to create my target of one game per month.
Patreon support has been a bit slow, hope this will improve as I create more games and web content.
Back in the early 1980's I received a Sinclair Spectrum 48K computer for Christmas. I was in awe - my brother and I had our own computer. The games were amazing, so many different genres to choose from. I soon got more interested in finding out how the games were made than playing them. The Spectrum had a programming language known as BASIC (Beginner's All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code). Although limited in the functions and keywords (Wikipedia Entry), it was possible to make amazing things happen on such a small and compact system. Within a few months I was making things move on screen, making my own graphics and music, and increasing my skills and understanding of the programming language. My interest in game creation has not waned since then.
As I got older I learnt additional programming languages, and dabbled in making software and games, with some success. In the early 2000's I discovered an awesome piece of software know as GameMaker. It allowed for the creation of games with minimal programming language skills. I set about to learn it inside and out, to the level that I was able to author a book on how to use it to make games. Since then the software has gone through many upgrades and name changes, turning into what is now a very powerful game creation tool.
Over the years I have had many jobs, including teaching, and working with people who have physical and learning disabilities. I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy gaming, so I recently launched One Button Games. This will allow me to make games that can played with a single input device - whether that be a single key-press, mouse button, foot mouse or pedal, or any other input device.
I'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions for games - drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
