Really wish I could change my username to something a little more relevant than a name I came up with when I was about thirteen, haha.
It's been quite a bit, but I'm always finding myself back here when the gamedev bug bites. I was whipping through my uploaded files to see if I had an old collada mesh I wanted to use for a project. Nope, not here. Might be on my old, defunct machine, as long as the hard drive is in tact, I might be able to recover it. At the t... Continue reading.
2018 was a difficult year for me, but it was another year of growth, especially the second half of it.
I got flu two times, went to hackathon which was an unpleasant experience, I worked more than ever this year and had a hard time after Sector Six was released - glitches, stress, constant inner conflicts.
But this was also the year when I got close to my goal of living from making games - thanks to Sector Six's success in December.
I also did some of my best work du... Continue reading.
12 games in 12 months (note: not game a month, but close enough). Not sure if worth it, but damn it was fun, and it taught me a lot of important things, like "never make a(nother) game in Go". Here's a full list of the games I made and some thoughts on every game. All the games can be found on my Itch.io account: https://jani-nykanen.itch.io (Most of them are also on Game Jolt, but not all).

But not for you
But(t) I'm going to implement them later anyway.
A better blog with more info coming later.
The biggest update since the release!
It makes all weapons useful, adds new relics and enemies for more variety, improves time attack missions, and more!
New enemy: Planar
Planar is an alternative version of sentinel.
It's a medium - threat level 2 - enemy.
Currently, it's the only enemy that releases projectiles from the left of the player ship.
Like a sentinel, planar uses a shield but activates it earlier.
Planars can be encountered in r... Continue reading.
I noticed shawn64's site went down this year. So I decided to try to preserve as much as I can. Here's what I have so far: https://s64games.wordpress.com/
I just updated the download links today. I'm using 64d for now, I will add dropbox links later. I managed to find several lost games using web archive, which is awesome. The only remaining lost game is Cookie Buster.
I still need to save all screenshots from web archive and re-upload them to wordpress. There are se... Continue reading.
Play on Itch.io
Source code on Github: https://github.com/jani-nykanen/the-great-goblin-party
There were three goals:
1) Program a game in Go.
2) Make game without telling anyone about it until it's finished (excluding last minute "does it run on... Continue reading.
I have started working on a new game!
It's called Light of the Locked World.
It's a fantasy RPG with local co-op and PvP, set in a world of Caios II.
Three hundred years from the game's present, magical artifacts were sunken in the world's only sea.
Magic leaking from artifacts and pressure of the depth created perfect conditions for abyst crystals to grow.
Abysts amplify magic and are very valuable.
After abysts were dis... Continue reading.
Description (from itch.io, not gonna write the same text twice): The Faceless Mountain is a short rage-game where you climb a slippery mountain. Use your face (!) as a grappling hook to reach places where your poor jumping skills would never get you. Avoid enemies and spike traps. They cannot kill you, but they will knock you back, and of course you don't want to... Continue reading.
