I've been working on making games and websites a lot so I recently started a small side project, I've been developing a Minecraft server.

It has been up for about 2 weeks now and we pretty much constantly have players on, it's a Towny Survival server with boosted ore counts, MCMMO and several cool arena plugins.

The name is FireFly Minecraft check out the website and if you play Minecraft check out the server it's a lot of fun.

Server address: mc.fireflymc.net:25865

Howdy! I'm currently working on BearBound but I thought it would be nice to work with an artists I haven't worked with before and make an iPhone and Android app.

I am looking to start a totally new project with an artist. We would come up with the concept and crank out a prototype in a week to a month's time. If you are interested in working with me please message me and I'll check out your work.

I am ok with artists who don't have a lot of experience working in animation, as long as they are willing to try.

Hopefully someone out there wants to take a shot at working with me, I haven't released much on Newgrounds lately due to working on client work and mobile stuff but my skills are sharp as ever. Also if the game is good I can make a Flash version to help get the word out about it. Though I would like to make the app version first.

First off! Click here to check out the Kickstarter Page!
I'm working on BearBound for mobile but I need some help making it happen. If you can please pre-order the game at the Kickstarter page for 5 dollars and help me meet my funding goal.

Howdy folks!
I've been working away on Primary 2 and I recently took some time to take part in the 2012 IDGA Chicago Game Jam. Several developers came together and had a good time making games together and networking.

In the end my team was chosen as the winner thanks to my experience with game jams like the ones here on Newgrounds. If you want to make games but can't you should participate in the jam however you can. It isn't about winning it is about participating.

Anyway as I said I'm working on Primary and I have a pretty solid engine but the final game is still a long way off. So I'm working on a smaller project on the side. Bringing BearBound to mobile.

I have all the ground work done and need time to do art but money is tight so I'm dong a small kickstarter for the game soon. By the way, BearBound was made for a Newgrounds Game Jam.

So even if you can't do much participate in the NG game jams you WILL learn something. And you might make a hit game by accident.

Get in the Game (Jam) also BearBound KickStarter!

Howdy! So I'm working on a version of Primary for mobile and it is coming along nicely. I'm planning on doing a Kickstarter campaign and I was thinking about things I can use as backer rewards.

Since the original game was made for Newgrounds and Child's Play I thought I might as well post and ask if any NG artists would be interested in making posters for the game in their styles for the Kickstarter campaign. If so I can pay a small commission for the work or trade my services on small projects. I would also give anyone who participates a free copy of the game and beta access through test flight.

I plan on donating a portion of the finished games profits to Child's Play once it is released.

If you are interested play Primary a bit and get a feel for it. Drop me a line and I'll give you some updates on what the new game is like. It will have more environments and some slightly different powers but the basics are the same... though I have plans to expand the game episodically.

Call to Artists for Primary Kickstarter

Posted by JackSmack - August 25th, 2012

Oh hi there! So yeah it's been nearly a year since I made a post on here... I've been busy with several things and haven't had time to really work on games as much as I would like to. BUT that's changing! I've been working on a mobile version of Primary for a while now and I'm planning on doing a kickstarter with it in the next couple of months.

The plan is to retell the story of the original and continue it with the mobile game so everyone who is sending me hate mail about the to be continued ending on Primary should be happy once it is done.

Right now there is a lot of work that needs to be done and i'm working on fixing issues with the base game mechanics on mobile, I'm trying not to dumb the game down at all for mobile but the touch screen makes it tough.

Can you guys point me toward platformer games on the iPhone that have intuitive control schemes? I really don't want to do a d-pad if I can help it and I have been working on alternatives myself but if there are other solutions I haven't thought of I would love to see them.

I'll try to keep you posted with screen shots from time to time once things start looking all smexky.

Howdy! So I'm a fairly regular face on the TV show Quirky on the Sundance Channel that premiered Tuesday at 10PM. I was only on the first episode for a few seconds but later in the season I'm on a FULL episode! Interesting stuff so be sure to watch Quriky on the Sundance Channel.

You can watch the first episode on Hulu right now! http://www.hulu.com/watch/270233/quirk y-huge-gamble-huge-reward

Anyway I'm also looking for some nice catchy upbeat music for my first iPhone app. I don't have any money to go buy something but if you are a musician wanting exposure and you have something that you can license to me that would be awesome. I will put your name on the splash screen with a Music By: credit.

Here is an image of the title menu. It is a very simple game where sometimes blocks fall but it speeds up as it goes to it needs to be a fun little song that can loop without being to annoying.

I'm on TV! And I'm looking for also music for an iPhone app!
