I've been playing Worldle daily for almost two years, and I love it. It's a game in which you are shown the outline of a country, and you have to guess what country it is. To help you, with each wrong guess you make, you are told how far and in what direction the target country lies.

It became popular following the Wordle craze of late 2021, appearing along with a whole slew of similar daily, shareable games. Many of these were geography games which I also enjoyed, Flagle and Tradle for example. However, it's Worldle I kept coming back to...


Magpie: a small update

Sunday, 22nd October 2023 ◆ German endlessly passionate in the park (6)

I've just released a micro update to Magpie which you can play over at Itch.

I'd been wanting to neaten the edges since I submitted the game to 7DRL earlier this year, but I didn't have time or energy to work on it that much until now. Still, I'm very happy to finally have done it! I've reset the leaderboards, because the game has changed a little bit and I figure this is fairer.

Magpie is my submission to 7DRL 2023. As appears to be my habit for this jam, it's another Broughlike. You play as a trinket-loving Magpie, navigating a garden full of worms... and various scary predators!

Loco Card

My entry to Deck-tember is Loco Card. You can play it on Itch, via the link below:

Deck-tember is a game jam for Decker creations, taking place in December. It's very much an analogue to Chip-8's Octo-jam, to which I also sumitted an entry this year. Decker, also an Internet Janitor creation, is a tool for creating things. It brings to mind a holy union of Flash combined with PowerPoint, except it's way cooler and has a very specific aesthetic. It takes inspiration from HyperCard, an old Macintosh program of similar vein.


Organising events with JustMeet

Thursday, 8th December 2022 ◆ Smooth shirt incident (5)

When planning an event with various people, it's hard to know when and where would be the most collectively convenient for the attendees. Recently, in trying to solve this problem, I made a spreadsheet in which each invitee would answer how convenient each option was to them: 0 meaning they would not be able to attend, and 1 meaning they definitely could attend.
