Indie Project Experiences

Castle Baloneybeard
Roles: Project owner, programmer
URL: https://tybobobo.itch.io/castle-baloneybeard

A puzzle game where you take control of the castle owner Baloneybeard in search of lost baloney. It was made under 9 days during a game-jam in cooperation with an artist.
The game was based of the design from Chip’s Challenge (1989).

My work included:

• Establishing core design

• All programming and problem solving related tasks

 Prioritizing design choices: Due to limited time constraints in the game jam, I had to estimate and plan ahead for what we could consider be realistic expectations.

• Level design (4+): It was our wish to create more levels, however time was running short and we had to cover our ends. Level 1-3 are based directly of Chip’s Adventure.

The game is based of the design from Flappy Bird (2013).

My work included:

• Implementing GameJolt API for adding highscores

• All programming and problem solving related tasks
