GeekyGnomeGames as I call it, was created 2014. I was inspired to make my own games and I did. Born in an era of gaming was probably one of the reasons for the inspiration – NES, Atari, arcade games and other awesome stuff. Graphics were not as advanced and realistic as it is now but games were a hell lot of fun to play back then. That urged me to “create.” Although getting a few earnings in a game is totally decent, it was not the main priority. I think at this stage I only want to experience the how-to’s and whatnot, alongside with people I trust and share the same endeavor.
We made Little World Escape as our first release for GeekyGnomeGames. I’m proud to say the graphics done is really good with the planets modeled and rendered in Blender 3D and the characters in 2D (vector). We used Unity as our game engine. The game is now available in IOS(AppStore) and Android(Google Play). It has a simple game play. The player is an astronaut that jumps onto different planets. As you jump from one planet to another you will be collecting stars which you can use to purchase different types of planets in the game. You can also unlock the other character in the game. Sometime in the game you will meet the crazy alien who will do nothing but annoy the crap out of you. However if you run towards it, it will run the opposite way, giving you a little space to time your jump to the next planet. Sounds pretty simple but it’s quite hard. The gameplay is pretty much a combination of ideas from some games out there, which honestly is not what I want for all GeekyGnomeGames creations in the future. It’s hard to actually think of a “unique” gameplay considering there’s a gazillion of mobile games coming out every minute or so. Others will always think, “Hey, it’s a ripoff of this, a copy of that blah blah.” Yep it is, but later down the road while continuing to make lots of games, pretty sure I can come up with something unique as well.
The first part of the plan is to create a game and go nuts with coding. I was very lucky to have friends who are game developers. You should also check out some of the games they created in this link – toothpiggystudio.
Rough things aside, I am working on ideas of a new game which is far from what I have started. This would totally rock everyone by surprise. It’s very far from the short game we are having now and it will be available on steam as well. Definitely a very long way to go, but I believe it’s worth a shot! Everyone in the indie games world support is much appreciated! Cheers!
