Completed game for TAGjam 16 "They Are Coming For Us"

As described in a previous post about TAGjam16, JunkBytes.com has hosted November's TAGjam. I participated with a simple game as a non-compo entry.

The game is called "They Are Coming For Us". The game puts you in a zombie apocalypse, and you have to repair a boat and escape with the help of a few companions. You can play the game here.





The game was originally submitted without sound due to time constrains. The updated version has finally been uploaded and boasts sound as well as a few fixes and tweaks.

I have also created a timelapse video of the game development process. You can watch it here:




These weeks I have had limited time to work on gamedev, but I hope I will catch up and have a new game to show in the next months.

Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore".
