You know me, I make little web games.

But this time I collaborated with my programmer friend and we made an idle tycoon game.

It's called WORKidle: Create Your Dream Games.

We're done with the boilerplate menus and upgrades etc, now we're adding the game design layer and the fun stuff.

So we need testers!

Beta Test links

We don't have a web version yet :(

iOS: https://testflight.apple.com/join/KQFwcZms

Android: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.sevenagames.workidleclicker

We don't have a publisher so we're pretty much doing whatever we want. And that means that your input basically changes the game. It's 50% done. Should be done in the summer!

Let me know what you think! :D

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and whatever else!

I'd like to give back to the community here that supported me. I grew up here. And I'm still making little web games sometimes. But mostly, the time I've spent here let me get a job in EA and SUPERHOT and now I'm designer who can pick and choose which jobs I'd like. This is incredible and if you'd told the teenage me that this would be the future, I wouldn't believe it! So thank you all!

If anybody would like some kind of help/tips you can message me here, or twitter or on my discord! I'm happy to help!

Some of you may well know, but this year was a very strange year for me.

I've published a real commercial game and it was quite well received!
Mars Power Industries was #1 best selling puzzle game in the US for a few days! :o


I've made this game with 3 of my friends, they helped me with programming and pixel sprites. We got featured by Apple as their Game of the Day and we were even featured for a day in Kazakhstan :D

My mom says selling the game for $2 is a blow to human dignity when we were working on it for a year. So we have to sell a lot of copies to make her happy. :o

The fun part is that I can't play it and none of my friends can. We don't have iPhones!

We've made an Android version for our families and our friends, just so they can play the game during the holidays. And here's the gift part of this post. We're preparing a Steam version of the game, and there's a publisher making a DELUXE version for Nintendo Switch but that will come later. For now, I have a few free copies of this game to giveaway!

Here's the game! For Android.

And here it is for iPhones.

And here are the codes to get the game for free! Please write in the comments when you take a code, so other people don't use the same code!

Android version:
DUN44FQ53FPS75ZKLLAK54T (taken)

iPhone version:

Thank you for your time, and have a great new year! :D

Spin Spy: The Man Who Turned

You have a case, you will be doing mini puzzles to get clues to solve the big case. Image Professor Layton has a child with James Bond! (Who doesn't have a child with James Bond?) Okay that's a bad image, don't think about it.


I'm making this a series of 3 small games, a bit like episodes from Telltale's Walking Dead. This first episode is the smallest. It's only one linear case, episodes 2 and 3 will be more open! I hope it will be an interesting tale of turning spies and intrigue!




I'd love to hear what your CLASSIC SPY TROPES are, what kind of puzzles a spy would have to solve!

I'm working on the game almost every evening, if you'd like to see how it's doing, chat a little, and throw some ideas, you're welcome! :D Here's my discord! https://discord.gg/2JRjkku

Hey guys!

While I'm working on WORKidle and it's getting ready, I've started a new project!

A detective puzzle about rotating clues and TURNING SPIES!


Welcome to Spin Spy: The Man Who Turned.

Imagine Professor Layton has a child with James Bond...
(I mean who doesn't have a child with James Bond? )

Development discord - https://discord.gg/2JRjkku


The year is 1978, a mission in Austria goes terribly wrong, MI6's best agent Avocado Archibald, simply called A, dies in mysterious circumstances. The supervillain Maelstrom gets away and it turns out one of your friends in MI6 is a traitor who shot Archibald! But who is it?




Ignore the bear experiment.



It's a sock!. It's a clue! Hmm... What to do with a sock? Better spin it! It's the only thing you can do!

It's a small game!  A single episode. I'd like to make 3 episodes, now that I have the framework ready and all. Essentially it's a detective puzzle, or a brain teaser, one that you would tell a child and they will be stumped for a while and then they come back and say "Dad, mom says you can't tell me murder stories at bedtime"

Okay, that's all for now!

If you'd like to follow closer the development - here's the discord where I'll update regularly what's new in the game and some kind of discussions about it can actually take place! https://discord.gg/2JRjkku

I'm working on this clicker game! :D Will be done soon!

There's also a puzzle game in the works that I'll finish sometime this month, and then a narrative interesting little thing, because I've been DYING to make one of those!

It's been a tough time recently, really exhausting, I just hope it will be all worth it...

In the meantime, what's keeping my morale high is this gif:

One day.....
one day I'll get there!

Hello everyone!

I spent the last couple of days making a short puzzle game about piecing your life together. It's based on my feelings and recent events in my life so I don't know how other people will take it...
I tried to make it fun and cute and I hope you will have fun 5 minutes with it!


Happy Valentine's Day! :*

Hug Me I'm Cold was frontpaged for many days and so many people played it and liked it, it blows my mind!

I'm sorry I made you all cry.
I don't know how these invisible ninjas got into your rooms and started cutting onions like crazy. I hope that didn't ruin your day.

Thank you all Newgrounders for all the love you gave my game and for the time you took to write your reviews. It helped me. I'm super happy many people around the world understand/share my feelings. I don't feel so alone anymore.

What's strange for me is that I expected people to hate it.
I just tried to express my feelings, not in a very good way, with my limited vocabulary and my terrible drawing skills. I thought the only award my game could get is the Underdog of the Week or the Turd of the Week.

It's a very strange 2017 for me so far.
I hope you all have a good year ahead of you!

I made a special story game for New Year's! :D

And it's super embarassing for me since it's got some talk about dating in it...

I was hitchhiking in Ireland and I had a crazy experience in Kinsale and I just had to make a short game about it! :D And the town of Kinsale approves it!

Learning Twine is really easy. It's been fun making my first game there! Definitely an experience I recommend :)

Become a hitchhiker for a day. See what I saw.

So I'm making a text-based cyberpunk game where the ending IS NOT:

1) AI turns evil, takes over the world

2) Character X turns out to be an AI

3) Corporations fall, the world is free

How radical is that? :o

Here's a city I made and I'm extremely proud of it! :D2424249_145523531473_456.png
