Two small snacks from Wormwood Studios
We recently made a couple of games for Indie Speed Run 2013. Basically, we were given random themes and elements and 48 hours to make games out of them. They're nothing substantial or brilliant, but they're free and relatively small downloads, so I figured I should share them here.

Like a Raisin in the Sun:

An interactive story about a robot with special tools who wants to bake a cupcake, even though the baker says he's too small.


A small point-and-click adventure game about the survivor of a shipwreck, loosely based on the story of the HMS Terror. (This one doesn't yet have voice acting -- it will be added -- and it could use a bit more polish.)

I played SALT a few minute and looks great but Like A Raisin in The Sun doesn't work on my PC (it give me an error on a blue screen).
I like the style of the drawings as on Primordia, really well done!
I never heard about INDIE SPEED RUN and I'm surprised about the sixteen judges (Suda 51, Peter Molyneux and others great people).

Anyway, I hope to see the next game of Wormwood Studios soon.

While a blue screen crash is an appropriate homage to Crispin and Horatio's "b'sod," I'm sorry that it happened. No idea how or why. I'll look into it.

I agree: the panel is amazing for ISR, and I too had never heard of it until this year.

I just bought Primordia the other day... awesome game so far. Love the story. I like when Horatio finds the dead human and casually refers to it as a robot. Really liked that since he thought of humans as gods. Good stuff. I'll definitely try those games out.

Welp, time to record some more going-to-be-amazing games :D

(At the time of posting this, I've already played through Like A Raisin 3 times to see various "endings" :3)

Thanks! :)

Wow, absolutely perfect timing Mark, I JUST finished my second Primordia playthrough with the developer commentary, I really enjoyed the insight of the crew, mostly yours though, I'll download this right away, looking forward for your next work, I really love adventure games :)

Glad you enjoyed it! It takes real dedication to listen to me for that long (as my wife will attest).

So I was just looking over some small AGS freeware to play, and I remembered I had been waiting on that "extra polish" you mentioned for Salt.

But it sounds like you're busy working on your next full game now? (if I were to search for posts on AGS forums from authors of Primordia + Eternally Us, would I find any hints as to what that is?)

Re: Salt and Like a Raisin, I'm embarrassed to say that we never did polish them up. With Raisin, there was some graphic driver issue that Steve couldn't pin down, and with Salt, I guess we never got around to it. :/

Re: our next game, it's a point-and-click "planetary romance" (not THAT kind of romance!) with a more open-ended structure than Primordia's. It's about people, not robots. Otherwise, I don't want to say much yet!

I don't mind as long as they are robots trapped in human bodies (or humans trapped in robotic minds which are trapped in human bodies), and I can get a full refund on Raisin and Salt, which are working perfectly btw :)

Raisin has a "loop" you can get in, which shouldn't be there, has a few inconsistencies between the VO and text, and a couple of typos. Salt has more issues (no VO, a few items have the wrong tooltips, and it's missing a large-ish Easter egg, which is that the Morse code is supposed to be a real message, which you can decode). Blah. Maybe I'll bug Steve (the coder and voice actor) about it again.

I'll play Salt today. Might be a good one for him to revisit when he's [Not a Robot Game]'ed out and needs a break :) Incidentally, I "played" Cardboard Computer's free side project "The Entertainment" last night.... impressive but I didn't really understand it!

I forgot I downloaded these until people started commenting again heh. I still need to finish Primordia. Stuck trying to enter that damned door code.
Mark Y. Mar 5, 2014 @ 9:22pm 
There's a robot who can help you crack the code if you can't do it yourself.
