In my teenage years, I used to have a website called “sheepsheet.com”. It’s long since been taken over by squatters when I failed to renew the registration, but I’ve still got some of the old stuff that I used to put up there. Nikki the Ninja was one of them. It’s one of my earliest experiences of polishing up a game for release to the public. Back then my market was the old Game Maker Community, before Mark Overmars sold Game Maker to YoYo Games. I still remember characters like “jazzuo”, “Mr.Chubigans” and “Shawn64” (may he rest in peace).
This game is what happens when you mix Legend of Kage, the Kill Bill series and a sad little internet kid wanting to delve into game development. I remember saving up to buy Poser 4 and convincing my mum to shell out for Multimedia Fusion. I didn’t become an instant millionaire, but I sure did learn a lot about sprite sheets and dynamic asset loading. Check out some of my old stuff!
