Flippy Bard

Release date: February 2014
Tools used: Unity 4, JavaScript, Photoshop, Audacity
Created for the itch.io Flappy Jam 

Flippy Bard was the first complete game I ever made for a game jam.

Let's be very clear about this: Flippy Bard is a Flappy Bird clone. But as it turns out, sticking to what's familiar was a good idea for my first foray into Unity.

With the exception of its three sound effects (attributed here), everything in this game — every line of code, every sprite, every cheesy particle effect — is mine.

The hours I spent fine-tuning Flippy Bard to recreate the cruel-but-engrossing pace of Flappy Bird were an invaluable lesson for future work.
