The Wait is Unbearable!

RAWR!!

I’m really prepared for this year’s Advent calendar. I’ve taken all the screenshots, I’ve written little comments for each game, I’m prepared!!
I’m Ready!!
I’m Sorted!!!

It’s been nearly an entire week since I released the thing, and still the first unlock is a couple of days away. It’s INSANE having to wait for my own games to unlock! I don’t think I’ve ever had to do this, before.
Usually, once a game’s done, I’ll stick it online and be happy, and in many ways that’s what’s happened here..
Except the games aren’t unlocked, and I’m having to keep silent lest I give anything away!
It’s rediculous!!

I can only imagine how frustrating it is for Magazine/Blog game reviewers to have to hold in their opinions of games, due to NDA’s and silly marketing rules and such.
Bah, humbug!

Each game has a 2 word title, starting with a different letter, in alphabetical order. A is unlocked, and we’re a couple of days from unlocking Game B.
Z will be unlocked on Xmas Day.
And in just a few days time, I can start posting about the games!
\o/yeay\o/

Merry Xmas, players!

Y6:Xmas – Alpha Collexion

Merry Christmas!!

…. What do you mean, too early!?
Well, ok, maybe it is..
In fact, as of right now, it’s exactly one entire month early!
But let’s not let that get in the way.
Introducing “Alpha Collexion”

Cutting it Close!

In 2 weeks time, I’ll be releasing this year’s Advent Calendar, titled “Alpha Collexion” (so that after Xmas, it’s still relevant, and is just as playable!)

400-logo

In order that the collexion is DEFINITELY in the OUYA store by Dec 1st, I’m going to have to upload it for OUYA Review in about one week’s time, which gives me just the next 7 days to finish off all the games.
I’m currently 10 games from my target. Eeek!

1 week : 10 games : Can I do it?!!
Find out, Dec 1st!

Replied

It’s alarming, how many people see “AGameAWeek”, and imagine it’s a haven for game reviews.
.. They simply can’t wrap their head around the idea of a single guy actually CREATING AGameAWeek!!!

New Archive?

Ok, so, I need a new archive.
It’s been a good number of years since I originally created the Jayenkai Archive, and although the software’s lasted through a fair number of rethemes, and a fair number of enhancements over the years, it all still pretty much has the exact same issues that it did on day one.

Rubbish Tech

RE : People who Jailbreak/Root/Mod their console/phone/tech, and then whinge that “for some stupid reason”, the tech is broken and unusable
… If you hadn’t broken it, then it wouldn’t be broken..

Please Wait

Regular AGameAWeek service will resume shortly.
The Advent collection will be released on Dec 1st
In the meantime, please enjoy the huge variety of games, previously released, available in the Archive.

Thank You for staying with AGameAWeek during this short break.

More to come.

Tick tock!!

Getting a bit panic’y now!
So far I’ve got 7.5 games finished for the Advent calendar, which means I have about 25 days to complete around about 19 games.
It’s going to be scarily close.

Meanwhile, I found myself wondering…
What would Platdude look like, if turned into one of these over-size-head Pop Vinyl figure things….

Facebook Rooms

Not sure how useful this’ll be, but you now have a new way to chat about AGameAWeek..
Facebook Rooms is a new app on iOS, and I’m sure it’s available via other methods, otherwise it’s a great big waste of time!!

Rock, Paper, Shotgun!

The great online site, Rock, Paper, Shotgun seem to have randomly decided to feature a Platdude game, which is odd, given that they’ve picked the most frustratingly difficult one!!

Platdude in a Bit of a Spin has been picked for their frontpage!

Hurray for Platdude!!
