I’m Tim Knauf. Upper Orbit is my personal project site.
But I gotta tell ya, the action’s all at Launching Pad Games these days. I’m co-founder along with the talented Tristan Clark.
Still here? Good for you. Go ahead and grab yourself one of these fine freeware games:
What do you expect when you die? Shining light? Booming voice? Rotting slowly in the ground? You probably don't expect to be greeted by a grouchy old crone in a flying yellow bus, but then, neither does Nathan.
Possibly 2005’s most heartfelt point-and-click adventure in the ‘badly-drawn freeware’ genre, Nathan’s Second Chance is now available for Mac and Linux as well as Windows.
Huge thanks go to both Rikard Peterson for doing the conversion work in OpenSLUDGE and to Tim Furnish for the original SLUDGE adventure toolkit.
Before Nathan’s Second Chance, there was Chicken Chicken. Unlike Nathan’s Second Chance (a carefully designed, one-player adventure that was developed part-time over the course of three years) Chicken Chicken is a two-player action game that was thrown together in under a week. You’ll probably be able to tell.
But play it anyway, because it’s heaps of fun. Grab a friend and each take a ‘shift’ key. Build up enough force to get near the edge without actually driving over it.
Head on over to Launching Pad Games. I’ll make it worth your while. ☺
