I finally feel the game is at a point where it can be shown to the world or at least the users of IndieDB for now 🙂
The approval process for the Double JUMP took a little over 16 hours which was pretty good really. Gemi Games took only 4!!! Some fast working people over there.

I admit that I haven’t taken many screenshots to show everyone so I’ve got a better way of getting screen captures now. I basically have the software take a picture every second only when in game as opposed to being in the level editor. I was discouraged initially by this idea because I thought sifting through hundreds of pictures would take too long but as it turns out our brains are crazy quick and it takes only a fraction of a second to realise a picture looks rubbish and only a second or so to examine a potentially good one.
With that said here’s a few that I thought looked best:
Thanks for checking out the screenshots. Nearly forgot to mention that I will be uploading a small playable demo to IndieDB and some other sites once a few more things are tweaked and added so watch this space 😀

What a great idea for capturing screenshots! I will have to use that in my own games. Thanks for the tip!
It’s looking great. I think the distortion was a good idea. Nothing says overdone like straight line tiled backgrounds.

Thanks a lot man. I’m really glad I could help out in any way I can.
It’s funny how worried i was about finding an art style and then a quick stab at gimp and a small shader has pretty much done it!
I underestimated the power of just experimenting and messing about with stuff.
