Game: Kind Words

With the world on fire due to a pandemic, I often find myself looking for wholesome videogames to play. There is an interesting curated collection of those available here.

What I am currently playing is Kind Words, not even really a game, more an experience in which you can send letters to people who ask for them and post a request to get your own letters. All anonymously.

It really is a fun thing to do, I suggest you give it a try, the game is available on Steam


My Games can now be played!

Well, one game, or actually a prototype. I started to play around with Construct 3 and decided to add all the prototypes I make to my site. The main reason for that is that I believe that I learn best in transparency and that I think that I will improve quicker if people can actually see what I make.

Back at it: Gamedevelopment

My mind is wired in a way that I need a project of some sorts that has no goal other than teaching me something whilst having fun. The extrovert part of my personality finds that in the several nights each week I spend teaching kids handball, coaching or refereeing matches and getting the various tasks I have as a board member of the local handball club.

The introverted part of my personality was severely lacking anything like it, but by chance I got back into something I did quite a bit of several years ago, the development of my own little computergames. Well, prototypes mostly, quick and dirty drafts to explore an idea. I even participated in the excellent and now sadly defunct OneGameAMonth challenge.

I decided to get back into that after having read the excellent memoir by Sid Meier. Just to dabble a bit and broaden my horizons. Not with one game a month, but with one every few months, I hope.
