With the Last Moonbeam

I published my new videogame WITH THE LAST MOONBEAM last night - you can download it from my page on! I've been working on this game in some form on and off since late 2020 - I picked back up on GBA programming as a lockdown hobby - so, as you can imagine, it feels really good to finally put it out into the world.

It's also super cool to see folks already playing it on their own hardware! I love seeing photos of the game in people's hands, so please share your photos with me on social media or in the comments on the page if you get it running. <3

What's next?

Even though the game is finished, I still have some extras I'd like to make for it when I have time.

For one, I'd really like to write a postmortem about the process of making this game on this blog. After a few years of working on it, I have a lot of thoughts I need to get out of my head. Plus I've been learning a lot by reading other folks' postmortems recently (like the ones that John Thyer has been writing on his blog) so I'd like to contribute my own.

I also have some ideas for a zine in the style of an old game manual. I think it would be really fun to make it with Electric Zine Maker and add it to the game page as a printable PDF.

That said, neither of these things are going to happen in the short term... As it happens, my partner and I are expecting twins literally any day now! So I'm going to have my hands full for a while. >:P

Well, I think that's it for this post - thanks for reading!
