Holy crap, we made a game.

Heckpoint_screenshot_176It’s pretty nuts if I think about it for too long. A year ago I barely understood how to make pixel art. I knew the basics of animation. I posted a picture on Facebook of an early attempt, and this guy from the writing community got in touch with me.

“Dude, I know how to program. Wanna make a game?”

I quoted some Ghostbusters at the guy (Sean Kelly) about some keymaster shit, and by the next day I was starting to animate for a novel I’d written called Beer Run of the Dead. My roommate and best friend, Greg, went ape-shit.

“I don’t know what I can do to help but I wanna help make a game! Let me in!”

We’re both avid gamers. So we started learning about pixel art and animation together. Eventually, we found Jadan Bliss (who lived right down the road) and now here we are almost a year later.

I am writing this just minutes before we submit to Steam. It’s crazy. We’ve always wanted to make a game and with some teamwork, love, and devotion, we somehow pulled it off.

Hopefully, people enjoy it.
