Aaargh! Condor

 

An unofficial remake of the amazingly-title 1983 Commodore 64 classic AAARGH! CONDOR, my 2018 update seeks to capture the frantic and frenzied spirit of the original game by Alan G. Osborne.

With three heroes, try to save as many would-be sacrifices to the titular giant bird by hurling a spear into its chest. As the game progresses, you’ll face more enemies and obstacles, all seeming to get in the way of your heroic feats.

I strongly recommend you also play the original Commodore 64 game and read about it in this article on the Obscuritory by Phil Shadsy, which introduced me to the game.

Knight Moves

KNIGHT MOVES is a game created for Sophie Houlden’s Chess Jam on itch.io.

The game features four difficulty levels and an unlockable endless mode in which you play a knight fighting against an all-pawn computer-controlled army.

A game like this doesn’t exactly need a story, but I took the familiar conflict setting as an opportunity to contextualize the game with my first illustrated cinematics in years. And also the public debut of the dialogue/text engine that has been part of the Game Maker tool kit I developed over six years ago.
