The Jeddy

Oh, hey! It’s my 200th Tumblr post, apparently. I guess this is a cool time to mention that my brilliant plan worked and my first game, Star Runner, is #2 in Desura’s monthly Cheap End sale and #3 on the site as a whole, today.

… Too bad the game is free at the moment, and it’s not the best game I’ve released. But, hey, at least a few hundred people have finally been exposed to something I made, as opposed to being completely ignored.

Now, if only this could generate some kind of exposure for anything other than Star Runner exclusively on Desura…

Here on “Scratching the Itch.io”, I do my best to bring you six recently released games from the hit game publishing site itch.io. Despite having fifteen to twenty for-pay games to check out each week, I often struggle to find six that I’m genuinely interested in. This week, there were four whole games that caught my attention! So, I’m bringing you five this week. I hope you’re not too disappointed in me. Can you spot that one that just barely snuck in? …

If you’re looking for some indie games to play this weekend, check out these five from itch.io!

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone! At least, this is the thirteenth edition of “Scratching the Itch.io”, and it’s being posted on a Friday. That’s close enough, right? In this edition, I also have a special surprise! You know that part of the where I say, “If there’s a game you think I missed, feel free to mention it in the comments or send me an email“? Well, someone actually did it, making me barely meet six games for the week! …

Bored? Jeddy submits six more indie games for your consideration!

Wasn’t I just talking about itch.io…?!

As my followers should probably know by now, I’m a huge fan of Itch.io. This post has some really interesting statistical analysis of the sales data, and it’s cool to see not which genres sell or where sales come from, but also just that the site is getting more popular in general.

A good read for anyone interested in the business of indie games…!

Today Compixellated is one year old. This is the longest I’ve ever been with a project. We’ve been at it every sunday for 52 weeks. It’s really great.

When we started Compixellated we never dreamed it would get this big. It’s really really cool. So great to see all the amazing pixel art you all send in each week. It’s really awesome the amount of people that have told us that they started doing pixel art for compixellated or those that use the challenges to try to increase their skill. 

So to celebrate compixellated’s first birthday we are going to celebrate YOU!

To celebrate all of you we are gonna have a giveaway!

A few lucky winners will get some art by me!

You guys remember Star Runner? You know, my hit XBLIG game that was released about a year ago? Well, it’s back! In pog form!

By which I mean, it’s now available on itch.io! On PC! FOR FREE. That’s cool, right? You don’t even have to pay anything, and you get to play a videogame.
