Flashy Dansy

Kostas here, during the past weekend I took part in a rapid-gamedev competition, #tagjam15.

This compo is a monthly 48-hour or 72-hour game-development jam which I came across by luck. I thought it was a good chance to force myself to make, complete and publish a game in a competition context, so I went for it.

The resulting game is Flashy Dansy, a Flashdance-parody where you dance to the song "What A Feeling" in the middle of a bridge road.


You can play online or download the game here.

This weird game concept is a result of the gamejam's themes, which included "Bridge" and "80's music" among others.

I am glad to see this game complete and polished in such a short deadline, and hope for more games like this to follow.

I would like to thank the other #tagjam15 participants who shared this experience and provided motivation to me, as well as Haddy for hosting the gamejam.

Update:
Flashy Dansy was the winner of the #tagjam15 competition! I am thrilled by the idea that this little game stood up so well in a gamejam, against 6 competing games (plus 3 non-compo). Hopefully this will be a motivation for more gamejams and more successes in the future.


Update 21 Jun 2018:
You can now play Flashy Dansy on Android (for free)! 
Get it on Google Play
Thanks for your support!

Aircraft maintenance simulator & VR game projects

Since the start of this academic year I've been enrolled in a Computer Science postgraduate program. I have found a couple of my semester projects to be noteworthy, so I thought I should post about them.

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

Stick Veterans 2.0: a long-overdue update

It's been so long since the last game update that I feel nervous writing this. After a long time of development and rewriting, a new update is finally available. Stick Veterans 2.0 is now published on Poki, a popular online games website.
