One Game A Month

“Your quest is to create one game each month for the entirety of 2013.”

Last year I decided to participate in the One Game A Month challenge. I wanted to try out different game engines and programming languages, and, most important, I wanted to actually finish a game. Most of my other projects became too big and I paused or canceld them. So OGAM was the perfect opportunity for me.

One year later and I really have made 12 games in 2013:

My games became smaller and simpler over the year because my time and motivation were decreasing, but it was a great experience and I learned a lot. Mostly about finishing my projects, so I only used Impact (HTML5 / JavaScript) and Unity (C#) for all the 12 games and not different game engines and kept the games small.

The two games I like the most are The Mage Dungeon and Where The Fuck Is My Brain?. The first one was mentioned on Free Indie Games and some people even made Let’s Play videos. Awesome! The second game was mentioned on Oddities, and I just always wanted to make a platformer.

I am really proud that I finished One Game A Month!

Congratulations to everyone who did One Game A Month and thanks to McFunkypants for starting it!
