Jasmine Laslo - Switch U On by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

You've been tasked with a simple but bizarre request from business magnate Rudolf Laslo - help him get his daughter's latest (terrible) song to 1,000,000 plays on his streaming service, Slola. He's so desperate for that, that every other track on the service is currently down.

Reach 1,000,000 plays by any means possible.

Rev%lver by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

It's high noon and your targets are all unarmed - but you're not! Only problem is, you've got a gun with an extremely weird quirk.

It asks you questions.

Rev%lver sees you move through quiet, serene deserts, destroying and stealing from docile robots while conserving as much of your ammunition as possible. Every time you pull the trigger, the gun needs a correct percentage level set - and the only way you can work it out is with each given question or statistic. The further away from the correct setting you are, the more ammo the gun discharges and wastes.

If you run out of ammo, scurry back and your captor will give you a refill... for a fee, of course.

Presented with small amounts of humour, Rev%lver has a 97% chance of being fun!

Britskrieg by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

Queen Elizabeth II is bored of being stuck with the United Kingdom. She has recruited a unique foursome of watertight buddies - The Buddy Squad - to fix that for her. By taking over the world for Blighty.

Daniel Johnston is the Welsh-ish eco-warrior with a thirst for violence - renewable violence. Mark Alexander is the Spanish Scot whose number one priority is to look cool in victory. Allison James is English, scared of loud noises, but is happy to wage war if it means she ends up with a bigger home. And the Irishman Darrell Flood? He just wants to watch the world burn.

Command the Buddy Squad's four armies around a map of the world blitzing capital cities, weakening or recruiting enemies, building British towns everywhere they go, and keeping a steady flow of troops in their midst as they conquer every square.

Britskrieg mixes strategy with idle game, and a sprinkling of education - every sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right (thank you Richard Osman) is represented, as well as their capitals with rough locations and their 2018 populations. And there's also a little bit of patriotism. But only a little bit. Because British patriotism is British pessimism.

Contains no Brexit humour. Breathe a sigh of relief.

Gossamer Girls by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Kill spiders. Collect gossamer. Trip balls.

Gossamer Girls sees you, the newest member of the eponymous all-female taskforce, exploring ancient dungeons, untouched by humanity for generations and overrun by clusters of spiders that produce valuable gossamer.

Dungeons are procedurally generated, containing ever increasing quantities of spiders with escalating threat, and connected by falling sections in which you descend through dangerous but rewarding neon tunnels. Start off with a randomly generated character and upgrade her through chests found on floors and powerups found in the falls between, all the while collecting as much gossamer as you can, using some as ammunition to defeat threats.

Also features a dynamic soundtrack that fades tracks in and out for each floor and fall, because I'm an idiot and decided that a time-constrained game jam was the first time to experiment with it.

Created for #LOWREZJAM 2018.

Four Versus The World by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Turns out war changes.

In Four Versus The World, each adventure is unique. Travel from city to city with "The Four", the sole survivors of one of many possible catastrophes that took place shortly before the game's events.

Hunt for food, energy, health packs, skill points and car parts to keep yourselves, and your beloved vehicle, on the road.

Search scenery and dungeons and do your best not to die in the face of continuous, sometimes arbitrary dilemmas - each character only has one life; once they're dead, they're dead forever.

Make it to the final destination, the glorious British city of... well, it's different every time, just like everything else.

It's all tongue in cheek and profoundly British. Made in 72 hours for the July 2016 GMC Jam.

Orbit Frenzy by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.fw.png

You meet a race of aliens that are the friendliest in the world. They exist to love. There is no war.

One problem. They create Special Custard, a substance which to them is just a nutrient food. But to humanity, it grants extended life and is rich in minerals unseen on Earth.

You are Reginald Waft, a savvy British hipster businessman who's left it all - cheeky fried chicken with the lads, banter for days and even the occasional episode of your nearest soap opera with your mum - to ransack the planet. You might even take the concept of their planet and sell it to some British TV channel as a children's programme.

Go with your array of missiles that grapple onto things to steer, and also somehow collect the abundant Special Custard. Missile those cutesy swines before they sing you a song about learning things. And then get back to the lads back in Britain, drop a couple beers, re-curl your moustache and smash up the local gym.

Orbit Frenzy is the clean version of Telifrenzy, Allison James' (and by proxy, Chequered Ink's) entry into Ludum Dare 33.

1 Girl 2 Cups by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

Wakka wakka, motherlovers.

You're an innocent, dual-uzi-wielding bikini-clad girl trapped in a Japanese burial ground, and the inhabitants aren't having any of it.

Dash around, collecting ammunition for your uzis. Find new and exotic weapons: like the Katana that is made out of purest grade aluminium maybe! Or the flamethrower that is secretly powered by love! Or maybe you're more into the inner workings of the chainsaw, since you're a bit of a carpentry fanatic... or are delusional and think that all the enemies are trees.

Upload your highscore to GameJolt, and have the leaderboard and the flashing display of the global best score permanently remind you how much worse you are than everybody else! And earn GJ trophies if you're into that sort of thing, you filthmongerer.

1 Girl. 2 Cups. 3 of something.

Hm.

Radslaughter by Allison James

0960_0200_ItchioHeader.png

One hitman. One skateboard. Two pistols of a length that definitely isn't a result of overcompensation. Ten locations. Ten targets. Ten teddy-bears.

Slaughter them. Be rad. Radslaughter is a physics-based puzzle arcade game which gets difficult. Kill each of the targets without smashing your face open or being massively dismembered by razorblades. Find the secret teddy-bear in each level and complete them as fast as you can to get 5 stars (none of that 3 star crap here!)
