New! Tom 7 Entertainment System: In-nor-out burger (04 Sep 2013 at 00:19)
Behold! A new Tom 7 Entertainment System EP!

T7ES — In-nor-out burger
T7ES — In-nor-out burger


We have very minimal standards for EP-ness both in terms of number of songs and number of seconds—but—the highest regard for quality. This here is four new musictunes of the thick and stereo variety, namely,

1. Beverage voucher good for one alcoholic beverage redeemable only onboard

2. Theme from asp in wall

3. An negotiation

4. Iced coffee 5

The first and last tracks are my favorites. When recording this one I've become pickier and pickier about sound quality and finally tended to an annoying noise problem I've been having with my sound card for years. I was thinking RF interference from the computer's bus, because it happened in tandem with on-screen computer-activity, but it turned out to be a ground loop. Now the recordings should be super clean for connoisseurs. (Something tells me no "connoisseurs" listen to my music, but if so, they should get the music zip file.)

Ludum Dare #27: Point One Hurts (31 Aug 2013 at 12:26)
Last weekend I made another Ludum Dare game in 48 hours, because it's one of my favorite things to do. The theme was "10 Seconds" so my game is "Point One Hurts". As usual this one can be played in the browser:

Point One Hurts
Point One Hurts


The game is more challenging than usual, due to my own bad planning. There's something to figure out there and it definitely can be won (and some people have enjoyed figuring that out!) but I didn't save enough time to work on the way the game presents its ideas to you. That's actually my favorite thing about game design: Interactively leading the player to figure out what's going on. Here, I just need to give the hints that you need to use the arrow keys and Z and X, to pay attention, and that your gaming instincts may betray you.

The part that came out best is the music, so play with headphones or download the themetrack MP3s.

New T7ES: If you antietam, join 'em (06 Jan 2013 at 15:13)

One fresh spanking new Tom 7 Entertainment System chipdude: If you antietam, join 'em. I set off to create something atmospheric but I definitely have a problem with restraint, so eventually it becomes a staccato arpeggio jam as usual. I hope you enjoy it.

Sick Ridiculous - Soup 'n Uts (02 Nov 2012 at 18:20)


Soup 'n Uts
Sick Ridiculous and the Sick Ridiculous - Soup 'n Uts


I have a bunch of new Sick Ridiculous et al. recordings which I will share as I mix them. It takes a while and I never feel quite satisfied with the results, but I can't just hoard them on my hard drive! This is a song about soup and anaphylaxis that we wrote for the Pittsburgh artist event "Soup n'at" (n'at is Pittsburgh vernacular for "etc.", roughly). It's called Soup 'n Uts.

T7ES - Rolling on floor laughing monoamine oxidase inhibitor
Tom 7 Entertainment System - roflmaoi.zip


What we have here is a new 4-song Tom 7 Entertainment System EP! You should download the zip file for maximum collectibility, but you can also click direct-style to the MP3s:

1. New four song T7ES EP

2. OUT OF RANGE HIGH

3. Apple ]|[ GS

4. This is the title of the EP

I have an impacted colon-load of more music turds, including a bunch of the two-track short form old-days style stuff, but I decided to keep this one self-similar. So if you are feeling like this one is off the rails, then well first of all just like chill out, man, cuz like artistic freedom creative license commons GPL squaretooth, but also second, well I already told you about the saved-up old-style. Anyway get zip.

Ludum Dare 23: T in Y World (24 Apr 2012 at 23:37)
T in Y World
T in Y World - Play that thing!


Sup guys. I made this game in 48 hours for Ludum Dare #23, whose theme was "Tiny World". It is an experimental homage to an old game called ZZT, with some twists like that everyone can edit the game world, making it a Moderately Multiplayer On-Line Rule Playing Game. Other features:

Very expensive simulated color-ASCII graphics
Content & technology double-whammy
False dichotomy
Four new music tracks, including shamelessly self-referential theme song
You can turn off the annoying music
Spoiler 1
Thrilling Computer Science based gameplay
Integrated level editor
Spoiler 2
Boss battle!!


You can play it or get the soundtrack, or both!

Escape Cod - Ludum Dare #21 (26 Aug 2011 at 08:49)
Last weekend I did another installment of the 48-hour solo video game programming competition Ludum Dare. They announce the theme on Friday night and then we draw and sing and program all weekend to try to put together a game. This time the theme was Escape, which was a weird theme for me because I've been working on a game just called Escape for like 13 years. The game I made last weekend is called Escape Cod and it's kinda like recursive fish pinball:

Escape Cod

The game's best understood by playing. The basic idea came from Ryan. Thanks Ryan. Initially there was going to be more pinball stuff to do inside the fish, but I knew that the transitions and animations were going to be tricky, so I did most of that first. By the time it got to mid-sunday, I was burned out on implementing physics and I had come to actually like playing the game in its current form, so I just kept doing polish. As usual, when the weekend ended I felt kind of down on the finished product (because of all the things I knew were wrong or wished I could do), but after seeing a few people play and the feedback on the entry, I'm pretty happy with it now. Escape Cod for yourself.

Do you recognize the Cape Cod scene illustrated? I had this canonical image in my mind that I thought was from a postcard or t-shirt that we had around the house growing up. I wanted to get it right so I searched around for image. Turns out I was imagining the bag of potato chips! The title screen is a tribute.

I recorded screenshots from my computer every 15 seconds as well as webcam shots of me touching my face a lot. It's stalkertastic.

I've now entered this a few times. Only Disco? Very! placed in the top 20 overall, but I have done well in the audio category several times. Priority Cats was #2, for example. Since all I care about is winning (winky-wink) I spent a bunch of time on the music for this game too, which you can get in a separate soundtrack.zip. Or make it like an interactive music video by listening while playing the game.
