I have finally created a rudimentary Twitter-Bot!
Right now @Cat_Bot_5000 only retweets things with the hashtag #Cats, and there is still a ton of stuff to further possibly build into it.
Last weekend was the Berlin Mini Game Jam, and I made Battlefleet Text Command in a few hours.
It’s a text-based strategy-game. You command your ships by giving them text-commands, such as
The ships then promptly do so. There is a lot of room to mess up, as ship-names can get complicated (try typing “Aguinaldo” quickly), and it’s very easy to stray into friendly fire.

Last weekend was once again Ludum Dare, and in 48 hours I made Spacecat Marines.
In Spacecat Marines you go from world to world in your ship, the Bigglesworth. You have a crew of spacecats with their own unique appearances and equipement, which accompany you on missions. During those you have to defend power-cores in fps/td-hybrid. They also get more experience and level up in rank.
I also made a timelapse, showing me working furiously:
I’m doind a trilogy on how to build grid-based puzzle-game over at Tuts+, centering on re-creating Minesweeper, for beginners. Parts 1 and 2 are already up!
The articles also have test-demos and the source-code, so you can check your progress.
