NeonPlat Extreme appears to be following the same path as BlastTrax, and gaining a nice bit of attention.
Knowing my luck, this will probably result in an equally similar amount of sales. ie, bog all!!
Folk seem to love my games, but getting them to try them is a bitch!!!

You can Download NeonPlat Extreme here for all kinds of devices!

Welcome to the Top 13 AGameAWeek Games of 2013

No other Top-10 lists appear to want to give any of my games any recognition at all, which kinda sucks since I've made a whole bunch of REALLY great games, this year! I don't even get a token "Made a shitload of games, this year" mention!
Sucks!!

So, sod them all, I'll make my own Top-10 list.
And it'll be all my games, and I'll even add a few more just to make it a bit more 2013 relevant.
That'll show 'em!!
Mwa-ha-haaa!!!Read More

AGameAWeek Gold looks back at some of the best, and worst, games that have been previously released on this day in history.

Today's game from the archive is a lovely little arena battler, with lots of weapons and things to shoot!

Over on the Monkey forum, a discussion about level data set me off thinking about making this post.

Whenever I put levels into my games, I tried to keep them as small as I possibly can. I've been doing it this way for years, and always figured it's nice to compress my data into something that's easily shareable.
.. True, I rarely ever get around to actually making these things easily shareable, but for the most part I try to keep things as minimal as possible.

NeonPlat Extreme sees most of the elements of the NeonPlat series of games, all cobbled together into one great big lump sum.
There's lots of fun little things to play around with, and for the most part it's the same single-screen platforming action you've come to expect.



NeonPlat Extreme is now available on iOS, Android, OUYA and Windows!

Android : Google Play

Today, I realised I could do with some proper little snowflakes, for use as particles, and started trawling the net.

.. Then I went.. "hmmm... Might as well make a generator.."

And then I did..

Make Flakes

(for Windows, with BlitzMax source included.)
Select a size, then it'll fill a 512x512 spritesheet with randomly generated snowflakes, and save it as Flakes.png

Job done!

I formally give you, and everyone else, permission to make videos of you playing my games, and then shoving those videos onto YouTube or Vimeo or whatever else you'd like to put them on.

I'd prefer to hear some commentary over my games, so I can watch them and enjoy the silliness of seeing people rant and shout, as they lose life after life in my ludicrously difficult games.

I would prefer if you didn't add any additional music to my games, but then YouTube will probably kick your arse for doing that, anyway.

You may monetise your videos however you'd like. I'm not entirely sure how complex the options on YouTube are, but if you can disable "unskippable" adverts, do that, 'cos those are frustrating!!

The Jayenkai Archive currently contains over 300 freeware games, all created by me. If you only do one Let's Play a week, you'll have years worth of content for your channel. .. Heck, even if you do one a day, you'll probably get a years worth out of it, as long as you take a rest at the weekend!!!

... And let me know, when you do!

Sheep Goes Right, or at least a minor version of it, is now available on OUYA.

It isn't finished. There's a lot more of it that I've made, and a lot more I've yet to add, but something annoying has happened in the past few days.

The aim for December is to make a nice little test version of JNKPlat, and see what devices it does, or doesn't work well on.
I'm going to try my best to make Touchscreen controls work with the game, but after years of trying various methods, that's probably not going to work out.
Either way, no matter what happens, by the end of the month there'll be a brand new mini-adventure for Platdude, in keeping with his Puzzle/Platform stylings.
The Windows and OUYA editions should be fine, but Android iOS controls will be quirky at best.
grrr...

Anyway..
Wallpaper!!

The Windows edition of NeonPlat Extreme has just been updated, and hopefully everything works properly, this time.
Gamepad support should work properly.. Although it's still refusing to work on my laptop, it is at least working for other testers, so .. um.. I'll just assume it's working fine!!
Music's in.. Was it in, last time? I can't remember!
There's also a few other nips and tucks, and other little tweaks, to help keep the game running smoothly.

*blimey*

You can Download NeonPlat Extreme here for Windows, play the HTML5 browser version, or if you've got an OUYA, you can play on that, too!!!

Now to finish off the iOS and Android versions, which involves a lot of touchscreen-control tweaking!!!

The OUYA edition of our great big Neovember game is now available in the OUYA Sandbox.
You can grab it from the discovery doohickey. Simply search for "NeonPlat" and you'll find it.

The Windows edition will be updated at some point in the next few days, and I'll be hopefully submitting the iOS edition to Apple some time later today. There's still lots of little tweaks to do for the touchscreen controls, but otherwise it's all running nicely.

*phew* So much to do! Crazy times ahead!!

My first experience


Me and Spinal were discussing OUYA. He'd just bought one, and was trying to get Monkey to work with it.
I dared to mention OUYA in a tweet, and so was instantly followed by OUYAForum's tweetbot, @OUYAForum_com
"Nnngh. A generic bloody tweetbot. Can't these companies behave properly?" I thought, and I otherwise ignored it and carried on.

A few days later, another minor mention of OUYA on Twitter sparked a second following by OUYAForum's tweetbot.
"Hmmm.. Didn't they just follow me?" I thought.

I checked into it, and found that OUYAForums wasn't even affiliated with OUYA. Instead, it was one of those fan forums that simply sprouted up as a result of the popularity of OUYA.
"Ok" I though. "Fair enough." And I carried on regardless.

The third time I got followed by OUYAForums, I started to get a bit pissed off about it, marked them as Spam, blocked them, and thought "to hell with that shit!"

Then I didn't bother to look into OUYA development for another month or two, because, quite frankly, that had pissed me off enough.Read More

Last March I was taken into hospital with a brain tumor. There's a lengthy blog about that, here.

Since then, although I'm "mentally" fine, I'm all sorts of physically screwed up!

I can barely stand in one spot without wobbling about, and trying to have a short stroll outside is somewhat chaotic.
In general I tend to stumble around, and can barely look around me, so have to always have someone with me incase I randomly wander into the path of oncoming traffic!.. Which I can't look out for, because I'm unable to glance around!!

It's a dangerous world out there, and I'm not fit enough to cope with it!!

As the year has gone on, I've been tackling walks.
Some days I'm able to get as far as the local village center. Other days, I can barely walks around to the corner of the street before I'm struggling. .. And it's not a very big street, either!

I've taken to counting steps using my 3DS. Each day me and Mum brave the outdoors, and we see how far I start to stumble too much and need to turn back.
On good days, I can manage a decent distance. On others, nothing much at all.

Realtime stats are provided via Twitter : @Jayenkai : Watch out for "Today's Stroll" tweets!

For those interested in stats, a collection of Step-Stats since Mid-June are available in This Google Doc's Spreadsheet, and will be updated for as long as I can remember to do that!!

Yet another case of AGameAWeek Gold being strangely interconnected with other events in my life!!
Today, I posted about Star Trek Pong 3 earlier today, and it got me thinking about the even older Amiga edition.
Curiously, I also recently purchased a USB Capture device for my PC. I wanted to output all my consoles and computers through my PC's monitor. It has a HDMI port, but a Scart->HDMI device seemed a little pricey.
Being the cheapskate that I am, I instead settled for a Capture device, which basically means I now get all my gaming through my PC, but can also capture it, too, which is a lovely little bonus.Read More

AGameAWeek Gold is our occasional glance through the archive, to pluck out some of the great games that I've created over the many years that I've been doing this.
Along the way we'll discover some great gems that I'd forgotten about, or occasionally the odd bit of garbage that I'm frankly happy to have forgot about!

Today, we take a look at a strange little Pong game!

Awww..
Nuts.
Today was supposed to be the great big release day, but annoyingly, one or two annoying issues have annoyingly cropped up.



First and foremost.. and quite bizarrely.. My Monkey games no longer appear to be working with Gamepads!!
At first I thought I'd retweaked NeonPlat until my code no longer worked, but upon searching through my archive, it appears that they're all equally as broken.
Either it's my Laptop that's freaking out, or it's my X360 pad, or.. .. More than likely.. Something's screwed up during a Windows update..Read More
