Endless Mode Part 2: Variety

Hello again! Last week we talked about the basics of Bleed 2’s Endless Mode, and this week I’d like to start going a little deeper. One of the first challenges I ran into was how to make the randomly-generated levels feel varied and interesting, and I tried to solve this in a variety of ways. […]

The Return of Endless Mode!

Happy new year, anyone who still checks this blog!! I’ve got some cool news to share: I’ve been working on a free update to Bleed 2, which I’ll be ready to release Soonishâ„¢ (like, maybe in a month or two?) As you can guess from the title of this post, the update is the newly-resurrected […]

Bleed Arrives on Nintendo Switch Dec 14!!

HELL YES!! Again, with the combined powers of myself, Digerati Distribution and Nephilim Game Studios, Bleed is coming to Nintendo Switch on Dec 14, 2017! That’s this Thursday!! It even got a fancy new trailer: I’ve seen so many devs say this that it feels like a cliche at this point, but I really can’t […]

Bleed Is Coming To Xbox One + PS4!

YEEAAAHHH! I can finally announce that the original Bleed is coming to XBO and PS4 next month (Aug 22 on PS4, and Aug 24 on XBO!) This is all thanks to Digerati Distribution & Marketing, an awesome publisher who liked Bleed enough to take it to the console market! I also have to thank Nephilim […]

PAX East Minibooth 2017

It’s been a month since it happened, but Bleed 2 was shown in the Indie Minibooth at PAX East 2017! It was a ton of fun, so I thought I’d do a write-up about the experience and compare it to showing in the MEGABOOTH! They’re both a blast, but there are of course differences. First […]

GDC (and, Is It Worth It?)

I’ve wanted to attend GDC for a few years now, but I’ve always been hesitant. I hear many game devs talk about what a great and inspiring time it is, I see all my Twitter dev pals posting about the fun they’re having when they go — it sure sounds incredible, but I always doubted […]

Bleed 2 Has Launched!

Whew! NOW it’s done! Bleed 2 is out. What a trip. It’s got some very kind coverage from places like Hardcore Gamer, Destructoid and Attack of the Fanboy, and overall I’m really happy and relieved at how it’s been received! The launch certainly went better than the original’s (when I accidentally shipped an .exe that […]

AAAAAHHHHH (3 Days to Release!)

…wow. I did it! Well, almost — Bleed 2 is out in three days, on Feb 8. I’m stressed, I’m excited, I’m really proud! I discovered a 2.5 year-old version of the game, so please enjoy some comparison shots as I pat myself on the back for all my hard work! Four years ago, when […]

Double Feature: The Clawed Girl, and Greater Difficulty!

With a week and a half left, things are getting tight! Bleed 2 is looking good, but I’m still cramming to make sure everything is as polished as it can be. A ton has happened this week so there’s tons to talk about: first, the Clawed Girl! Yes! The Clawed Girl from They Bleed Pixels […]

Almost There…!

This week I was invited on the Escapist Magazine Twitch stream to talk about Bleed 1 and 2! John Markley played through the original, and a demo of the sequel. Here’s the link if you want to check it out, it was a whole bunch of fun! Anyways — two and a half weeks until […]
