Build 'n Bump
Released: July 2015
Inspired by the classic DOS game Jump 'n Bump, Build 'n Bump retains all of the same head-stomping, multiplayer fun with a twist. You can build your own levels right before you play on them!
Players can still technically play online thanks to the web-based socket.io library, but it requires players to either be on the same network or know how to open a port on their router. So... not ideal. But the "online" mode was a last-minute addition, anyway, just to see if I could even pull it off.
The reason I made the game in the first place is that I loved playing Jump 'n Bump when I was younger and always wanted a similar game on the Xbox. While there were plenty of games that mimicked the basic gameplay, none of them were nearly as fun. They all felt off. So I finally decided to make my own and painstakingly recreated the same physics by playing Jump 'n Bump in a mini window while simultaneously programming the game!
