I’m pleased to announce that TV Trouble will be present at EGX this weekend; as part of the Leftfield Collection.
Sponsored by worldwide publisher SEGA, the Leftfield Collection celebrates the diverse nature of the indie development scene, giving EGX attendees experiences that are often profoundly different to those available elsewhere on the show floor.EGX blog
If you’re attending the show, come and say hi!
I’m happy to announce that the game I’ve been working on, Button Frenzy, has a final release date! It’s going to be released on July 8th; just less than four days from now.
Just a quick post to say that Button Frenzy now has a Steam store page. Getting close to release now! Just a few more (mostly admin related) things to clear up before I can put it on sale.
A few weeks ago I participated in the Idle Thumbs community’s bi-annual game jam. I talked about what it was last year in a post I made for Shoot That Pizza, so I won’t go into it in huge detail. Anyway, this time around I organised it, which was really fun! We got over 45 entries in total, and the games that were submitted were really excellent. I’m really happy with the way everything turned out.
For my jam entry, I made a game called Explode Mode. It’s a game about driving a hover tank with a wacky and novel control mechanic. It’s inspired by Katamari Damacy, but it’s a twin stick shooter?! That sounds confusing but it’s fun, I promise. You can download it for free right here:
The hosts of Idle Thumbs played my game on their Twitch stream! I think they enjoyed it?!
Explode Mode is on the featured section on the front page of itch.io!
Rock Paper Shotgun covered Explode Mode in their Free Loaders column!

Just a quick update to say that the game was successfully greenlit on Steam earlier tonight. I’m pretty excited!
Thanks to everyone who checked out the game and voted!
I have another event appearance coming up! I’ll be showing Button Frenzy at Multiplay’s Insomnia57 later this month, from the 25th – 28th of March at the NEC, Birmingham. That’s just a few days before Gadget Show Live and in the same venue, so I guess I’ll be pretty familiar with that place by the end of the week.
Again, if you’re going to be attending, come and say hi!
