New Website 2020


If you've been following us for a while now, you've probably noticed that our website looks a bit different... Well, for the past two months, in addition to working on games, I've also been working on bringing to life this brand new version of our website!

There are a few main reasons for the update. The first is that I hadn't done anything with the site in 5 years, so it was starting to look outdated. Secondly, it would be a good project to showcase on my portfo ...


Resuming Full-Time Development


Hey everyone,

This is a quick announcement to let you all know we are focusing 100% full-time on game development again. We have had too much to do and not enough time to get it done, so we are going to be spending significantly more time than before. We are fortunate that we are able to do this right now, especially when so many others are struggling across the world. It is our hope that we can create some fun experiences for you during these difficult times.



Detective Butler Choices DLC Released


At long last, the Detective Butler Choices DLC is available for purchase! This additional content adds choices and branching paths to the game, which ultimately reveal the answers to several mysteries that the original story left unresolved. We have also posted a discussion thread and walkthrough guide. We know it has been a long time waiting, so we hope you enjoy it ...


Choices DLC Coming Soon


Hey, everyone. It's been another few months without any updates, so sorry for that. There's been a lot going on in the recent months, which has made it difficult for us to accomplish much. Fortunately, the coronavirus pandemic has not really affected us negatively, but it has obviously changed the world quite a bit in a short amount of time, so we've had to adapt accordingly.

Plans for a New Decade


As you might've noticed, updates have been quite slow recently. It's been hard to find time to make any progress, but I really do work on things every day. I should get better at posting updates and getting the word out, but I am doing everything I can to keep this train running without a hitch.

General Updates

So, I've gone back and added a few of the Patreon posts. I'd actually been posting there for the past few months, but this place looks too barren. ...


Getting Closer

Once again, progress is kind of slow due to my day job, but fortunately I am still getting some pretty significant things accomplished. Here's a quick rundown:

  • Snowball Saves Christmas has returned to Google Play and is now also available on the Amazon App Store!

  • Currently working on the Detective Butler DLC. I recovered a bunch of old documents and photos from way back in 2013 and that gives me a lot of material for new content. I will probably make a ...


Slow Progress

Currently, we have gotten the level editor to a point where it is being used to make levels, and our intent is to make some sort of playable prototype of Witch Doctor Kaneko. Hopefully, we can release something soon (within the next month or so).

Earlier this month, I finally started uploading video tutorials. If you want to learn how to code, check out Kinjo Codes on YouTube. I might even try other video content eventually, once I get better. My intent right now is to just get stuff ...


Level Editor is Ready

During the month of August, we worked mainly on improving and finishing Witch Doctor Kaneko's level editor. We added buttons to place doors and ladders, and can switch between different grids and tilesets for a variety of sprites and placements.

We also fixed some memory leaks and learned how to optimize SDL's textures for minimal memory consumption. While our previous build in Unity required nearly 250 MB of RAM, our custom C++ engine now only requires a little less than 50 MB! That ...
