Barbara vs Zombies

A few years back I made a game, Barbara vs Zombies, for my then-girlfriend Barbara. She used to like an old light-gun game, House of the Dead , so I depicted her dodging and shooting zombies in this one. Included a backstory with silly romanticism, cats, and inside jokes. It's been nearly a year since we broke up, and this game has been sitting forgotten in my hard disk. I eventually decided it shouldn't go to waste. It is, after all, a game meant to remind us of happy times. Download and play the game on Gamejolt  or itch.io . I had made an Android version too, maybe I'll get around to publishing it someday. Hang in there, 2020 was a tough year, but you've made it this far already, so congrats. 💖 -Kostas

Ludum Dare 46: Super Immunizer

Ludum Dare 46 gamejam has just finished (and seems to have been hugely popular ). The theme was "Keep It Alive". I took part with my cousin Alkis Tagaras (who made the 3D graphics) and my friend Giorgos Giannisis, who made the music. The result is Super Immunizer , a mini-game where you fight microbes as an immune system cell.

Ludum Dare 44 (late update): Alleycat Faust

Two months ago was the time at which the Ludum Dare 44 gamejam took place. It's been 2 years since I took part in a gamejam ( Global Game Jam in 2017 ), and 3 years since I took part in my first Ludum Dare ( LD35 in 2016 ), so it was about time I re-lived the experience.

A text-based adventure

SO I made a console game. A text adventure, specifically. Written in pure C. It's all here:  https://github.com/kostasvs/MagAdventure

Stick Veterans: the Art in Maps

These past few months I have been taking a much needed break from developing Stick Veterans. While I miss it, and there are tons of stuff I really want to add to it, personal life issues and a pressing schedule are not helping much lately. I do, however, make sure to regularly check and moderate the maps that you guys have been making and uploading. It's not an easy job, as I need to playtest each map to see that it plays well, and many maps often need corrections.

Flashy Dansy is now on Android

Wow, took me almost 4 years to decide to do it. Flashy Dansy is now available on Play Store for Android . Flashy Dansy is a game I had made for #tagjam15 gamejam , and it is the game that won the jam. I almost feel nostalgic thinking it was released nearly 4 years ago .

Stick Veterans 1.1 (Grenades, Body Armor)

Found the time and courage to push out another update for Stick Veterans . Version 1.1 brings hand grenades  and body armor  into the game, among other additions. Body armor is just a way to endure more damage (RPGs will no longer frag you in one shot). Grenades are quite a game changer, as it means you will have more strategic ways to fight your opponents, but you'll also have one more hazard to look out for. :) Finally, a feature called Game Rules  has been added. This allows customization of score limit, grenade acquisition rules, respawn delay, and a few more rules. More might be added in the future. To be honest, there were more features that I wanted to include in this update. Seeing how I lacked the time to finish them in a reasonable timeframe, and knowing that there were some pending bugfixes, I decided to push this update as it is. This doesn't make the update any less important, though. I can't promise when a new update will come again, and certainl
