Hi there,

So I've been making games for a while on Newgrounds, and these days I'm looking for contributors to help grow my open source project: A JavaScript game engine.


https://dev.to/jacklehamster/im-looking-for-contributors-for-my-open-source-project-33ac



I think using JavaScript is a great way to make games, because they can be shared on the web through Newgrounds or other portals, but also they can be exported to executable and released on Steam or phone games released on Android / iPhone.


If you love to make games, and you're looking for a nice engine to use, well this one is in development but we're getting there!


Feel free to ping me as well if you're an artist and have a game idea in mind. I'm trying to make this game engine easy to use even for non-programmers.

A few weeks ago, I participated in #js13k gamejam (https://js13kgames.com/#winners) and made a rogue-like shooter that fits in 13kb! My game ended up with 🏆#12 spot! (ok it was mainly thanks to "theme"... but whatever.).


This is the post-jam release, with more features! And a bunch of medals to collect! I know y'all love it.

🎖 🏆🏅🥇🥈🥉


Check it out! and Have fun!

Hi everyone,


I just put out Dobuki's Epic Journey at the highest possible discount, for a limited time. It's now so cheap it is practically free...


Why so cheap?


  1. So I can gift it to my friends on Steam because I think they'll love it.
  2. Also, the game is actually free on Newgrounds if you can still run Flash. So a bunch of you might have already played it, and if you love it, I hope you'll do the same :-)

I'm re-releasing Dobuki's Epic Journey on Steam!


https://store.steampowered.com/app/2453320/Dobukis_Epic_Journey


Note: The game is not being remade, it's just going to be released as is for very cheap. But hopefully, if the game gets enough attention, I can try to build a sequel.


If you haven't played it yet, make sure to Wishlist. The game is coming out in 2 weeks!

We added a new feature for displaying Fan art in World of Turtle, such as this one:

Fan arts will be displayed randomly as loading screen, or can be viewed at your own pace within the gallery in the "Extra" section.


Please contact me if you'd like to contribute with some more fan art!

World of Turtle is released again as a demo with 30 levels on Newgrounds:


And the full version is released on Steam:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2258040/World_of_Turtle


And I'm here to answer all your burning questions:

  • Wait, isn't this a remake of an old game?

Indeed, this is a remake of World of Turtle, which was previously a Flash game. This new version is remade in JavaScript with better graphics and sounds.

  • What's new with this remake?

A lot! You get full gamepad support, ability to rotate and zoom, a new theme song for each stage along with a jukebox option, the game is playable on touchscreen, and I actually added a few bonus levels at the end.

  • I already finished the Flash version. Why would I buy the game on Steam?

So you've been enjoying playing my game for free so far huh? Hey, support me already!

Think of this as a long term investment. The sooner I get financially independent, the sooner I can spend my time doing nothing else than making games that you enjoy. Plus I'm sure you already forgot the solution, so you'll spend plenty of time going through the levels again.

  • I prefer to play the game through Newgrounds. Can I do that?

Hey good news, you can actually unlock the Newgrounds version using a key generator, contained in the full version of the game... Hum... I guess if you know someone who bought the game, they could also unlock your version. I'll turn a blind eye if you do it discretely, and definitely don't ask ME to unlock it for you!

  • When will you be making new games?

I'm working on it. Be patient! Meanwhile, enjoy this game and other free games I made on Newgrounds!


Cheers!

I am preparing an upcoming release for Steam:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2258040/World_of_Turtle/

It should come early January, and I will have a demo version with 30 levels on Newgrounds!


(for those of you who have seen something like this before, yes it's a remaster of World of Turtle, with better graphics, music, controls, and a few bonus levels).
