Behold The Kickmen Development Diary #00003

Jun 132016

Hello! I NEED YOUR HELP. So, Behold The Kickmen is finally playing really nicely. The AI are good, it ‘feels’ like old-school Sensi or Speedball, and I’m now fixing bugs and making it funny. One of the things I did to make it funny last thing on Friday afternoon was to record myself shouting into […]

Behold the Kickmen: Development Diary #00001

May 52016

Hello there! As you may have heard, I’m now making a little football game, despite knowing nothing at all about football and not really liking the sport or the people who used to walk past my bedroom window at 11:30 at night after the “big game” shouting “WAAAAY-OOOOH, WAAAAY-OOOOOOOH, WE DID IT, WE DID THE […]

Announcing ‘The Swindle’, again.

Oct 302014

Size Five Games is delighted to re-announce The Swindle: A Steampunk Cybercrime Caper. Here’s all the gumph from the press release where I thinly pretend I’m not writing the Press Release and interviewing myself. Press Releases are weird and awful.

All the Boring Bits of Paperwork you have to do as an Indie Developer

Apr 92014

Everyone knows that being an indie dev is the best job in the world. When you’re not just playing games on the sofa in your underpants surrounded by Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, you’re idly making guns and things that explode. Sadly, once in a while, the fun and games turns to drudgery and you have to […]

INDIES: What you probably need to know about The TV Industry

Apr 12014

I’ve written a lovely long article for Rock, Paper, Shotgun about my experience in the TV Industry, and what indie devs should probably be aware of when metaphorically getting into bed with TV people. Have a look, it’s all words and pictures.
