The Wreck of the Opaline Star

The Wreck of the Opaline Star is a game I made for the recent, 2-week, space-cowboy game jam over at  It's the short (5-10 min) story of an emergency maintenance bots efforts to save a space train from crashing into a gas giant.  I handled the game design, art, programming, and...voice acting, while musician Jeff McMillen handled the sound track.  

You can play the game in your browser.  Just follow the widget below to the page:

Also Indie Game Stand...

UnSummoning is now also available on Indie Game Stand.  I hadn't heard of Indie Game Stand before someone suggested I submit it there, but I gotta say I really dig it.  Of the game portals I've dealt with thus far (Desura, Steam Greenlight, Humble Store), I like IGS's layout and interface the best.  Definitely worth checking out.  Also, they have my game, so they're even definitelier worth checking out.

UnSummoning is FINALLY RELEASED!!!!

Whahahahahaha!!!!  After more than a year and a half, many set backs (and occasionally giving up in despair), UnSummoning: the Spectral Horde is finally released!  You can buy it through the nifty Humble Widget below, or mosey on over the main game page and peruse the videos and screenshots there.

And, as always, don't forget to vote for it on Steam Greenlight.

Now, that's taken care of...time to start on another game...

New Trailer, New Screenshots, New UI

At last, I have created a trailer for UnSummoning: the spectral Horde.  Check it out below.  

Careful viewers will also note the UI changes that have been made since the last update.  I think this UI will be a bit cleaner and easier for new users.  I've also updated all the screenshots on the game page to reflect the current (and final?!?) version of the game.

The End Approaches

So, after a long hiatus, I have returned with a vengeance to finally wrap up UnSummoning: the Spectral Horde.  The game should be feature complete this week.  Then, after a couple more weeks of tweaks and bug fixing, the full adventure will finally be available to the masses.  In the meantime, here are some more screenshots.  Notice the new spread-shot power up and the quite vicious masked ghouls (terrifying!).
