Extra Extra!!!

I have a nice long post for you guys today, and I'm sure you will all enjoy it. I am going to talk about a game I discovered near January 1st, and this game is called "A Thief's Journey". I always like to start these posts off by discussing the inspiration for a given game. This game's inspiration is from games such as connect the dots that you likely would have played as kid. As in connect the dots, in "A Thief's Journey" you must be careful not to visit a tile (or dot in connect the dots) more than once. Initially, the game's skeleton was bare bones, like most games. In fact, the initial game play consisted of a square for the players and dots for bases.

After the initial development in January of 2015, the game play was satisfying, although tougher levels were a must. After some hard thought, it was figured that since the game setting is a 3x3 grid, the levels had to be more challenging. This led to the in game obstacles you will see upon playing the game, such as moving spotlight, that I like to think of as a patrol helicopter, this spotlight will kill your run if it catches you. The developer's goal here was to make it so that even if a player knows the path to the prize, the prize is not always easy to obtain.

Here is a great Youtube video going over the game.

Of course, the game is free to play (not 1.99) with an optional microtransaction that really is not much at all. Check out the game on The App Store and The Google Play Store! Aditionally, check out the website at

I hope we are all doing well.

As you all should know by now, I am constantly on the hunt for new content to post and developers to interview. Unfortunately, in the past many developers are too busy developing their games to talk with me, but that all changes today.

I am a member of a Facebook page where developers show and test their creations, and I happened upon a hidden gem. This is an indie game (my favorite!) by none other than Mugiesshan Anandarajah. The game I am talking about is titled "Street Grudge", a game based on the fighting system of Muay Thai. I have a statement prepared by Mugiesshan, and here it is:

"This game is a 2D side-scrolling combat game with a parkour feature which you can use to leverage your environment to deliver attacks and dodge attacks. The inspiration behind this game is actually based on a 3rd story idea I'm working on, so this game in a way is actually a prototype of something bigger. One of the key things about this game is the parkour feature using your back…
