hi everyone!! ^^ i’m egg boy color (eggboy or Andy are ok too). I like to make games, draw pixel art, and do coding stuff for fun sometimes. my pronouns are they/them.
I also mess around with homebrew coding and to that end I wrote a language called Wiz, that’s a way to write high-level assembly for old consoles like NES/SNES/GB/SMS/MSX. It’s a WIP, but it’s aimed making some things a bit easier than raw asm code, while still keeping close to 1:1 mapping with asm instructions. I’m also working on a little Ys-like action/RPG called Wandering Magic, that started off as a PICO-8 jam game, but I want to slightly enhance and fill in the rest of the world.
At my dayjob, I also work in game development, currently at Tribute Games. I was one of the main programmers for Flinthook, which is a run-and-gun platformer with roguelike elements + procedurally arranged levels. Now I’m doing programming for Panzer Paladin, an up-and-coming linear action platformer with swordplay mechanics and a lot of references to older NES-era games. You pilot a powersuit to fight demons and collect their weapons, and can use weapons in a bunch of ways: attack, throw, cast spells, use for upgrades, etc. Your character who can move around on foot too. (however, I’ll probably keep most conversation here to personal/non-work stuff!)
Anyways, hi! I figured I’d sign up here as a new place to hang out! Hope everyone is staying safe.
