I was going to make videos but now I’m making games

I’ve been wanting to do something like Talkbot for a long time now. A while back, while watching Space: 1999, I noticed that the command center on Moonbase Alpha looked a lot like a modern open office.

It’s an office on the moon. The Office, Office Space, Space: 1999! This could be an awesome mashup. Wait, is the URL available? Yes it is (well not anymore). Perfect. And then I was reading about interactive fiction and yadda, yadda, yadda, I made a game. So now I’m working on Office Space: 1999 and it’ll be a series of game-like things instead of videos. I’ll be trying to get some work done on this while I’m off this next week.

Bomb On Station 7

Well, as obsessed as I was with Twine, it couldn’t do what I wanted. I ended up using Construct 2 which is way more flexible but, holy cow is it wonky. The interface is a mess and full of modes with options that only appear in certain modes. It took me forever to figure out how to do what I wanted. But now that I’ve got it down, I think I can make something really great. Until then, check out my first game – Bomb On Station 7.
