So I know this page is for the Ninja James Roberts comic, but here’s some related news.

I made a video game. This was originally my final project for my Master’s degree. I really enjoyed the process of making it and I had a lot of ideas, so I kept working on it. Now, I think it’s in a form where others can play it and enjoy it.

It’s called Doomsday Clock, and it is my very first video game. It is a 2D action-adventure hack ‘n’ slasher that takes inspiration from the 8- and 16-bit games that I played growing up in the 1990s, such as Ninja Gaiden, Castlevania, Mega Man X, and Skyblazer. All the artwork, sounds, music, story, programming, and visual effects were created by me. This game is a labor of love that I have vastly enjoyed creating and hope to be able to improve and expand upon it.

I want your feedback! Please tell me what you think about the game. If you find any bugs or issues, or just have some suggestions, feel free to let me know.

Please understand that I’m still very much a beginner at game development and am still learning. There are some things that are visibly wrong (such as the tiling for the floors), so please don’t mention them, but I would really appreciate it if you would act as testers and look for and point out problems regarding the gameplay. I welcome constructive criticism as well.

Please give the game a try! It’s not long, but I think it’s fun. It’s a 70 MB download. There was a version that could be played in your browser, but it had some issues, so I’ll keep working on that. In the meantime, let me know what you think, and pass it along to anyone you think would enjoy my game!

I have made it part of my portfolio, which you can find here: http://ninjajamesroberts.com/jwade/portfolio/

And please read the instruction booklet! It is located on the website as well as included in the zip file that contains the game. It’s very important for you to read it because there is no tutorial!

Oh, also, I made a little trailer for it:

Also, our boy Ninja James Roberts is in it somewhere, if you can find him!

Thank you!
