Hey everyone! I'm the guy who made tower of heaven and pause ahead.

My current project is an 80's themed neo-noir action platformer - focusing on tight instant death combat, time manipulation mechanics, bullet deflection, dialogue tree derailment, and well - fun, satisfying gameplay.




The game is now complete and released.

Not officially yet, but I'm sure the announcement will come before the end of the year Wink
Sorry you had to witness poor interviewee skills though, haha.

Been working on enemy awareness of traps. Unfortunately sometimes I still suck at my own game, but in the gif I attempt to lure the enemies into some lasers then zap them. Shotgun guy's reaction time is too fast for me though.

This is looking really coo. I love the way the bullets are returned and It is flashy without being muddy, good job on that!

Thank you!

Today I got a new batch of sound effects, so I've been doing a lot of sound mixing. The whole game has a very subtle 3d sound system (including the l/r doppler whizz of bullets as they pass you). Obviously nothing to show there since it's all audio, but I'll try to record a new gif later today!

Worked on some new effects today. A lot of the game will have background dialogue which you can choose to ignore, but some of it may hint at some pretty important plot points later on.
