Inspired by a recent hit show, cross 10 chasms to reach the end. Be quick and cautious when crossing. There’s a draining presence in the fog, keep an eye on your battery charge and keep moving forward.
This is a simple game. You wake up to find you and your room have been transported to an endless dungeon, and your goal is to find your way out while avoiding the Deathcubes (find your way through 12 levels to win). You can find and pick up randomly scattered books along the way for bonus points.

Any game development questions are welcome. We will have “show and tell” time for any other game projects.
Knoxville Game Design invites you to attend the online meeting and podcast recording for Sunday February 10, 2019 at 2pm Eastern Time.
This month’s topic will be game development history featuring QBasic. We will discuss how we got started with game development and the first tools and languages that we used. Levi D. Smith will show how to setup QBasic using DOSBox and a brief overview of the language.
We will also show the Knoxville GameMaker games created for GM48 last month.
3Tris is a mashup of Tetris and Match-3 rules, where the pieces come down from the top and can be rotated and positioned by using WASD (and spacebar to speed up). The twist that makes the colors important is that the mouse is a 2-block cursor that swaps block positions. The only way to clear blocks is to make match-3 combos by moving the blocks around after they touchdown.
The wheel of color is composed of six colors (aka, orenji, ki, midori, ao, and murasaki). Hold the spin button to adjust the spin power. When the wheel stops, your marker is moved to the next color on the board matching the color where the arrow is pointing. Your marker moves left to right and bottom to top of the board.
Any questions on the topic or game development in general are welcome. We will also have time for “show and tell” for anyone who wants to share any game projects that they have been developing.
You are a German Soldier trapped in the eastern front, however all gun fire and artillery fire has ceased. The Trenches have grown immensely quiet.
Your goal is to collect two halves a car key to escape the Trench. W to move forwards A to turn left D to turn right S to move backwards SPACE to attack, uses sanity. Run low on sanity, and you lose your grip on reality. Don’t let the madness catch you. (your max sanity will be drained by 25% when a key piece is collected)
Your goal is to receive and sort mixed pallets of different colored boxes to match the outgoing orders. You have a limited amount of space to organize, and the only way to make more space is to finish the pallet configurations and get them out the door. The faster you can finish each one the more points you get. If there is no space to receive the next incoming shipment when it arrives you get a strike – 3 strikes and it’s game over.
Drag the cards to the board to use them to manipulate the pieces as they come down. There are left, right, and rotation cards. The cards will highlight green if they are acceptable to play, and red if they are not.
You can also choose to sacrifice a card to freeze the piece for a limited time (3 seconds). The card slot that is discarded will be out of play for awhile. It can be helpful to get the freeze time, but hurtful because you will less cards for that time. The longer the game goes, the more penalty time the discard takes to freeze the falling piece.
Blocks from from Nibiru are falling into our dimension. The blocks arrive in shapes of four and stack on top of other blocks. Save the world from destruction by destroying the blocks before they reach the top of the dimensional plane. Destroying blocks will periodically award bonuses for your ship. Be careful to watch the heat meter above each ship, as overheating will require your cannons an extended period of time to cool off before you can shoot again.
In other words, the game is a cross between the space shoot-em-up genre and falling block puzzle game genre. The gameplay is inspired by games like Gyruss and Tetris.
