A brand new game
for Windows, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew, iPhone, Android TV and more,

I spent yesterday morning sifting through old JNKPlat versions to find what tiles might have gone missing over the years.

Folk who previously visited my DSBrew site will now find themselves plonked into this site.
This is AGameAWeek, and here I write a game a week! Just as it says!
I opened up my own little DSBrew site a while back, and started cataloguing DS games, but soon realised that keeping a DS Homebrew catalogue + writing a game a week didn't really work that well together, so DSBrew got left behind.
Up until today I've left it be, rotting away in an unused corner of the internet..
But.. There have been 4 new members join the site in the past couple of days!
It's a bit weird, considering no-one's joined there in the past 3 or 4 months.. The total is now 14!
And, really, I'm not sure if they're spambots or not.
I'm not taking the chance of spambots infecting my otherwise clean server, so.. Off it goes.
DSBrew's now an officially dead website. What was is no more..
For the regulars, normal Alien Deathmatch blog stuff is inside..

Carrying on through my current flu symptoms, and I managed to get the last remaining "classic" tiles working in JNKPlat.
Those lovely exploding tiles, and pushable TNT block, along with the keys and gates, and an inventory for them, too.

Prevent your station's vents from overheating.
This ain't no moon..

Every day, AGameAWeek Gold takes a peek through the inexplicably large collection of releases, and digs out any old games that I've previously released on this day in history.
Occasionally there aren't any. I'm not fast enough to have that many!
But other times, there's more than one!

Spent most of yesterday wrapped up in bed, sniffling and with a sore throat.
Flu season is here, early!

The centipedes have returned. Bring out your balls.

Minor tweaks to the still untitled New Centipong, but nothing too interesting to bother to mention.
Mostly yesterday was a sidetracked day..

Although August 13th isn't a significant date in my health matters, it is the date that I wrote this rather lengthy blog post, back in 2012.
It's now become a bit of a tradition for me to post an annual update on this date.
Other Jiggity Posts
The posts are given the title "Jiggity", because my original post was titled "Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig"!
It's a handy keyword when searching for these health posts.
A tumour/cyst/blob was wedged in my head, somewhere between the Spinal Cord and Cerebellum, near the Fourth Ventricle.
Thankfully the tumour turned out to be none-cancerous, but once they removed it, the balance issues kicked in, and I ended up stuck in the hospital, on various drips and oodles of medicines, vomiting daily, for literally months.
It wasn't a pleasant time.

You know what might be handy?
If I had some kind of magic title generator, so I could type in the name of a game, and it'd go "Kapoof!" and magic me up a wide variety of possible titlecards.

Until late in the morning.
I code in the dark,
As a new day is dawning.

Another 4 levels of JNKPlat were made, yesterday. Nice and big proper levels that should take a few minutes to solve, assuming you manage them in the right order!
12th September, 2018
Getting back to what I should.
The game needs levels made.
I've built a lot, but still need more.
Alas, my mind has strayed.

...is the apparent name for the foldable booklet of puzzles.
Today I need to decide if I'm going to continue to work on FoldAPuz, or take the time to work on more JNKPlat levels.
Or, perhaps I should work on both of them!?!

Every Tuesday morning, 10:30 GMT (or thereabouts, later if I sleep in!) I post a brand new game, right here on the site.
Each game is 100% coded by me, Jayenkai.
95% of the graphics are done by me (with rare dips into the Google Image archive when I'm absolutely dry) and 95% of the audio is also done by me (with rare dips into the Aminet archive, or Kevin MacLeod's collection for the odd bit of music when I'm not in a composing mood!)
If you'd like to read more about what tools I use, click here.
Over the many years that I've been doing this, there's been an extremely varied selection of games, from absolute gems, to complete stinkers, but each and every week there's something new, and if you're happy to try new things, then you might stumble upon a few games that you'll grow to love.
As well as a lot of games, I also create Music and am currently attempting to draw a Platdude based Pixelart every single day.
There's even daily blog posts to keep you informed about background inanities that happen in my life.
So much stuff!
Stick around, and enjoy the ride.
Be aware that if you email me, you'll generally get a long rambling reply.
I tend to waffle in my emails.
If you'd prefer I keep things short, use Twitter instead!
