Sydney Finds Employment: Finally released!

Sydney is a bum. And he's a bum with a problem. A new policy set in place by a joint venture between the political parties, churches and big businesses to rid the streets of homelessness and unemployment sparks the catalyst for this adventure game.
Part comedy and partially a message to the public about the problems on the streets, SFE is a highly entertaining and visually appealing adventure in a style long forgotten by modern gaming.
With story, coding and graphics by Ivan Dixon (aka iSTVAN) and music by Steve Larabie (aka Pixelblink aka me), this is an all out PixelJoint admin showcase! Not to mention it features 100% pixel graphics.

Origami Hero

It's been awhile since I've posted so here's some scoops for y'all. As you've noticed, I'm trying to redesign this site (slowly but surely). It's a work in progress but I plan to add some visual navigation to this mess of things. Let me know what you think so far.

Sydney Finds Employment is just about ready to be released as I've completed 95% of the music. Hoping it'll get done before 2006 is over. After that, I have some ideas for another point 'n click adventure game that I'll try and get Ivan in on. Mum's the word for now but, once the ball gets rolling and we have some screen shots, I'll release the details.

On that note, I'd like to introduce you to some awesome indie games I played recently from Bernie over at OrigamiHero:

Cedric & The Revolution tells the story of a couple of guys fed up with the king's unruly rule. They decide to kickstart the revolution. But how will they convince the rest of the population to join in on the protest? Find out how it all goes down and download it.

Reactor 9 begins with a bang... literally. You play a convict stuck in the bowels of the prison basement with your correctional officer when all of a sudden the ground shakes and you're both trapped. The reactor is about to blow sky high and you're the only one able to save everyone. Featuring a trust meter, you must use your skills and wit to convince the CO to help you along your quest.

Darkside Adventures is a 2d platform game in the same vein as Super Mario World. Battle through a magical world full of bizarre enemies as you attempt to retrieve the lost crown.

All of these games can be found and downloaded at OrigamiHero
