Simple Jumping Game

I wanted to get a bit used to how Game Maker work, so I made this very simple platformer over the course of the a few days.  The controls are simple, you can cling to celings, and you can also skip to any level using the 1 through 0 keys.  You can also collect a coin in every level, although they really don’t do anything.

There’s not much to this game, but it was a fun learning experience.  Play it if you’d like!

Tamer Island

Tamer Island is a freeware game created using RPG Maker VX Ace. For my first game, I wanted to keep it simple, while incorporating a lot of elements I would like to include in the majority of my games in the future. Some of these include a large cast of characters (monsters in this case) which you can mix and match in your team, various mechanic ideas for dungeon gimmicks and puzzles, and an assortment of one-of-a-kind rings as the primary equipment. It’s not a fantastic game though. It sports a couple unbalanced characters, armature mapping, some embarrassing typos, and has a really abrupt ending. However I have learned from these mistakes and plan to use everything I learned from this project to make an even better game next time.
