Happy Pixel Day! Over the last twoish weeks I've been working on a game to celebrate today. It's called Jaded Journey and now available to play (as of this post it's passed judgement).
Jaded Journey is a rather quick and simple game composing of one main button. You gotta click-click-click to defeat the encoming enemies as you make your way down the long road ahead. It's composed of original music (you can also find the music used on my profile) with some original and not-so-original art in the game.
It's been rather fun working on this game in such a short time, and am pretty happy with how it's turned out given the timeframe. I'll be looking to updating it here and there, and possibly giving it some replayability down the line. It is also available on Google Play for pretty much any android phone you want to throw at it (tested performance as I developed it as well!).
Anyways, shamelessness aside, I'm really happy to see this new day celebrated. Back in 2015 Pixel day wasn't a thing, and looking into it, it seems to have become a thing shortly after I had become inactive. While I'm not the best at pixel art and pixel things, I certainly love the look of good pixel art and the bitty sound to music made for those games. I have to say one of my favorite things I've stumbled across recently was this audio track by Zophar. While it isn't in the running this year, it certainly is an amazing thing.
Anyways, thanks to Newgrounds for Pixel Day and giving me a reason to get off my lazy bum and make something cool. Good luck to everyone who has made something this year and I can't wait to see everything!
