Against Procrastination is my first proper interactive fiction game made with Twine in autumn 2020. In it, you need to clear your to-do list while avoiding tempting procrastination activities. The game features numerous randomized activities, descriptions and variables that make small changes to the description – for example, in the reading activity, the genre variable has 21 different choices while the book type variable has 11! With randomized values for the length of the to-do list and the time you begin your game as well, no session is the same!
Well, Well, Well is an interactive fiction game my friend nofuu (who made the artwork and some of the code) and I made for Game Jam for the Junior Devs in July 2021. In it, you end up into a well and must navigate through underwater tunnels to get out without running out of oxygen. With randomized area descriptions, each playthrough offers a little variation even if you take the same steps!
Campfire Tales is visual novel my friend nofuu (who did the artwork) and I made for the O2A2 (Again!) – A Visual Novel Jam in July 2021. In it, you get to choose one of three campfire tales that grandma Elaine can tell you: a ghost story, a garlic bread story and a dragon story. In addition to the three short stories and nofuu’s lovely artwork, a major aspect of the game is the asexual representation.
Down the Memory Lane is a short visual novel I made in a few days for a creative writing course in October 2021. In it, you play as Jake, who, alongside his partner, Sylvia, visit his childhood home with hopes of him regaining his memories. It features four different endings. It’s also my first project that’s gotten a YouTube video made by someone other than anyone involved in making the game.
Bad Feather Day is a short low poly third person adventure platformer game made with Unity during the first half of 2021 for Jyväskylä University’s Game Project course. Unlike my other game projects so far, it was made by a proper team of seven people. In the game, you play as a bird with hands. Using the hands, you have to survive to the end of the game by punching and throwing bananas all the while you collect three keys in order to go against and defeat the final boss.
MathQuiz is a practical work I did with my boyfriend on our Programming 1 course using C# and Jypeli during the autumn semester of 2018. In the game, you need to solve (more or less) tough equations with or without a timer, depending on the mode you choose. Both modes have their own point lists for top 10 scores.
No Escape is a tiny game made with Bitsy for my Game Design course in November 2020. The story of the level that makes up No Escape is simple: You are trapped. Nothing that you do matters.
Overpass is a 2D platformer made with Godot. In it, you have to draw overpasses over obstacles that are in the way of the player character Lisa. It was made for a game development challenge course with the theme “unusual controller”. The controller intended for the game is a drawing tablet, but due to coding reasons a mouse is also supported as a controller.
Project Moonshot is a Unity-made walking simulator made for Game Off 2020. As you explore the facility you woke up in, trying to figure out, among other things, why it’s deserted but operational, you learn more about its crew. Unfortunately, due to time table issues manifesting mid-jam, the end result of this ambitious project was a barely serviceable prototype. Still, it’s something noteworthy and will be built upon, so it’s worthy of being on this list for now.
