Global Game Jam 2017 – Donnie’s Dogs

On 23, Jan 2017 | In Desktop, Video Game, Web | By David Logan

The best kind of bonding is over extra long work days, being in the same room non-stop with people, and cranking out a kick ass game. Recently a group of us from Akupara went to the Global Game Jam in North Hollywood, which is one of the 600+ locations that all participated in the Global Game Jam at the same time.

Teams get formed, and each team had 48 hours to create a game from scratch based on a particular theme. The theme for 2017 was “Waves,” so our team (which included both Akupara and new friends), created a game based on the popular stadium cheer called “the wave” where people raise their hands at proper timing in conjunction with others to create the effect that the crowd is making a wave.

Keep in Mind

On 05, Dec 2016 | In Desktop, Video Game | By David Logan

One of the first games Akupara Games is working on publishing, is horror adventure game Keep in Mind. We approached indies at Little Moth Studios because we saw some huge potential in the title and the company. The game had previously been released for GameJolt, but we’re working with Little Moth to completely revamp and re-release the title on Steam. Stay tuned for more…

Keep in Mind follows Jonas, a tormented alcoholic who seeks refuge in sleep from the life crumbling around him.  One night, he awakens to a shadowy mirror world where beasts lurk and the stars don’t shine. Lost and scared, Jonas must face all those twisted beasts if he ever wishes to return home and learn the truth about this darkness.

New Studio – Akupara Games

On 05, Nov 2016 | In General, Video Game | By David Logan

I’ve done it again, I’ve started another game studio. The studio is called Akupara Games.

Back when I started Night Light Interactive in 2012, I was a recent college grad, and looking to mainly create a portfolio piece to help launch my career in games.  It was an incredible learning experience, and built the foundation of my knowledge in development and publishing.

Several years later I’m starting a new studio for completely different reasons. Over the past seven years I have created a lot of games. I have had a lot of successes, and a lot of failures. There are so many things I wish I had known when I had been creating games.

The Metronomicon Launches on Steam!

On 30, Sep 2016 | In Desktop, Video Game | By David Logan

The Metronomicon, the rhythm-RPG hybrid that I closely worked on with Puuba, has finally released on Steam for PC and Mac!

The player controls a full party of heroes such as a Warrior, Mage, and Cleric, but their spells and attacks are activated by chaining together notes like you would in rhythm games like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero. Each hero has their own lane of music, and the player can switch between lanes at any time to select the hero they want to attack with.

Wheel of Fortune Game

On 12, Dec 2015 | In Mobile, Video Game, Web | By David Logan

The Wheel of Fortune game was designed by TVGla, replacing the website‘s old Flash game with a completely new game in HTML5. In the game, players solve puzzles by filling in the blanks. If you guess correctly, you get points, and move onto the next puzzle. Every several puzzles, you get to spin a wheel, and even have a chance to win extra points in the bonus round.

TVGla is the agency of record (AOR) for Sony TV‘s Wheel of Fortune, so they handle all WoF related digital stuff including the website, banners, and digital games. I was the producer on the game, helping to see the design and development realized.
