  Hamumu! Develog!!! #3 10:52 PM -- Mon July 30, 2012  

A couple days later yet! Soon I'll wrap around and be releasing these so late that the next one precedes the previous. Maybe not.

  Hamumu! Develog!!! #2 04:33 PM -- Sat July 21, 2012  

I'm only a day late! Pretty sneaky, sis. Check out the progress on Dredd Speed and the part you couldn't see before of NPC Quest.

  Pedro Kicks Back! 11:06 PM -- Mon July 9, 2012  

Oh, by the way, speaking of Boys' Life games... I never mentioned that Pedro Kicks Back has been up and playable for a few weeks! It's a fun game, a side-scrolling platform brawler with a very extensive skill system. Go play!

  A Dumb Update 10:49 PM -- Mon July 9, 2012  

I would have a tremendously exciting screenshot right here, but I recently began implementing the random dungeon generator for NPC Quest 2, and so as you should expect, the game currently freezes up in some infinite loop in the generation. Unfortunately, I have to switch projects for this week to make progress on other things that need to get done, so it's gonna sit like that for a week while you fail to see any screenshots from it since I can't take any.

Here's what you are missing: the hero now wanders around the dungeon, seeking out enemies and attacking them (they in turn seek him out and attack), and everybody takes damage as they should, with really nifty pop-up numbers that you'll just have to imagine (really, they do pop up in a fun way, I swear), and a nice life meter, XP meter, and most wondrous of all, fog-of-war hiding the world from you until you explore it. That's the kind of fabulous cutting edge game development you can expect from Hamumu. Both Flee and Fight modes work, too, so it's practically ready to ship, right?

In other news, what I'm doing this week (and maybe every other week for a couple months) is another game for Boys' Life website, a nifty little space shooter with a tiny hint of Spaceboy for people who have good taste and long memories (that hint is the ability to craft weapons from the junk dropped by enemies). Gotta pay them bills! I'll share screens of that as well, and I think I also have an interesting (non-game) surprise somewhere in my sleevular vicinity...

  Is That Gameplay? 01:10 AM -- Thu June 28, 2012  

Not really... it's the gameplay screen, if that helps! Evil red-eyed gnomes are attacking our Gumby-like hero with their volatile 0-damage attacks. At this point, the gnomes do find their way to you, wandering around walls and all that, using the classic Smell algorithm (TM & (C)!) from NPC Quest. I know there were some oddities with that in NPC Quest, where guys would dither back and forth for a while before making a decision, so we'll be tweaking that. I initially used the A* pathfinding algorithm, but it was shockingly hard on the CPU, presumably because my super-naive implementation of it was chock-full of allocating new objects and whatnot. So I figured rather than code that in a smarter way, I'd just use the Smell system, which took about ten minutes to get up and running, and works perfectly so far.

In the interface here, you can see there is a "joystick" of sorts on the left, where you can tap to choose which priority your hero will use. The left features your three buttons: skill 1, skill 2, and potion. There will probably also be a pause button and a game-speed slider.

  Vote For Escuela! 03:24 AM -- Mon June 25, 2012  

I'm spamming everywhere I can with this, because it's a true life-changing opportunity. My wife runs Escuela Del Sol Tutoring, the cheapest and best tutoring in Temecula (unbiased facts!). She's been in business for 5 years, slowly growing the whole time, but like Hamumu, money is always really tight! Now she's applied for a big juicy grant at Mission Small Business, and the catch is that we need 250 people to vote for her in order to be eligible for the grant. That's where you come in!

It's INCREDIBLY EASY to vote! You need to have a Facebook account though, and I don't blame you if you don't want to join Facebook just to help us. But you know you have one, so come on!

Just visit www.missionsmallbusiness.com, click "Log In & Support" which will log you in via Facebook, then enter "Escuela" in the search box. It will pop up an Escuela Del Sol blurb with a "Support" button, so CLICK IT!

If you've voted for somebody else before, no problem. You can vote for as many as you want. So please, give us this vote, because if by some miracle we got this grant, our lives would be changed immensely. Come on man, do it! What are you waiting for?!

Oh, and if you want to hear all the details on what this is about, you can read my wife's letter about it here. Why haven't you voted yet? Do you hate children?

  The Wayback Machine 03:49 AM -- Fri June 22, 2012  

Haha... I stumbled across this file while looking for something. I share it with you here to shock and amaze. It's dated Nov 6, 2001.

Planned/Considered Future Products

Dr. Lunatic Extreme

This package is one CD containing all of Dr. Lunatic - the original game, the Fun Pack, the Expando-Pak, and as many add-on worlds as I can get permission from authors to include. It installs in one fell swoop, not requiring the two-step process of the original bundle. It has all bug fixes and a few new features, like the removal of the 64-world limit and other tiny niceties.

Hamumu Dumb Pack I: The SPISPOPD Series

A bundle package, might take two CDs, but I doubt it. Contains Dr. Lunatic Extreme, Loonyland, Amazin' SPISPOPD (modified version that does not require or allow registration codes to be entered - it's just permanently registered), and SPISPOPD and SPISEdit. There are ample warnings about the last two probably not working, but they are there to try.


Of course!

Sol Hunt

The board-game, super-action simple one.

Spooky Quest

Diablo clone with limited online features including chat.

So hmm... I sure came up with a better name than Dr. Lunatic Extreme! And I added a lot more than it says here! I actually don't remember what the Sol Hunt board-game type game is. There have been so many Sol Hunt ideas. Spooky Quest has been something I have planned to do for years and years (clearly more than 10 years now!). It always changes slightly over time, but yeah, it's a Diablo clone! It is truly the game I dream of making one day.

  Don't Fear The Reaper 05:13 PM -- Thu June 21, 2012  

Everything is subject to change, but for now, here's one of the Farmer's amazing skills! Incidentally, there IS a space between "milk" and "jar", I don't know what is up with this font (it also appears to italicize 3s and 8s).

So I think the way skills work (for now anyway!) is that each class has 6 skills - 2 active and 4 passive - but rather than simply putting points in the 6 skills, you buy the skills for 1 skill point, and then you choose which of 3 aspects of the skill to dump further points into, so you not only decide which skill you want to improve, but exactly how you want it improved.
