So as you might know, Krapi Studio has released their first game:

Don't worry, I'm not committing myself to produce only Krapi Games. It's just that if I finish a game that looks a bit sub-standard, I'll stick the Krapi logo on it and pretend it's krapi on purpose. ;-P (j/k)

Anyway, with Krapi games, also comes krapi humor. So I started a comic about it:

Cheers and enjoy!

So there was this silly project I started. At first, the idea was to make a game where a hitchhiker simply goes from planet to planet, looking for his dream planet. All he gets are clues from aliens on various planets.

The idea was ok, but to work, it needed a great story. Not sure why, but I really got writer's block on this one. I came up with dialogs but I have to admit I didn't really get inspired, and I'm almost feel shameful to admit I wrote them.

Anyway, I was going to just put the game up and not care much about it (we didn't really spend much time on it anyway), but I came up with another idea. I'll let you guys fill up the game with dialogs ;-P If nothing, I hope it can become an interesting social experiment. You can also change the look of the alien (see below, I added a stupid hat). You could actually redraw the alien completely, because all you do is upload a 90x90 png. It uses the Newgrounds API to store all those images.

This game will be released probably early next week. I don't plan to work much more on it, just get the project off my plate. However, if you do have a suggestion, feel free to let me know.

The game is here:

Social Planets open to Beta testers!

It's my birthday, so I think it's a good opportunity to share two news ;-P

#1 - New game: Mr. Fish (http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/619322)
There was this fishing jam, which is a challenge to make a game in 7 days. So I just made a game for it. It was a good way to cool down, between some other more difficult projects. (I have to say, I didn't look hard for groundbreaking gameplay or originality). Gotta say I'm pretty satisfied with the result, and got the opportunity to work with a great composer. She's new on Newgrounds, so please support her: http://marbletonemedia.newgrounds.com/

#2 - Re-designed website: http://www.dobuki.com
I re-designed my website (looks much cleaner now). The website now features not only finished projects, but also the ones being worked on, and playable demos of some pending projects. There is a blog that I recently started, and a forum for game creators. (the forum is brand new, so it has nothing in it yet).

Re-designed website, and new game
