‘My Friend Pedro: Blood Bullets Bananas’ is an action packed 2D platformer with
highly acrobatic elements which draws inspiration from games like Max Payne and
movies like The Matrix. The ambition of the game is for it’s players to truly
feel skillful, rather than feeling like you’re continuously triggering cool
looking animations. Oh, and it also features a talking banana named Pedro…
But more on that later!
The game is currently in a pre-alpha stage and is aimed to be released on PC (and probably Mac) eventually.
I’m currently the only one working on this project. What you see is the result of about
8 months of on and off development. A lot of that time has been spent on learning Unity
and general 3D-stuffs (both visually and programming), as I’ve previously mainly made
2D Flash games (excluding games worked on while being employed by a company).
This is the first time I’m having a go at a DevLog and I’m hoping to be able to post stuff
pretty frequently. I’m currently juggling this project with some occasional contract work
and general procrastination
Anyways, enough words. Time for screenshots!

So if you see this, you’ve most likely just played one of my old flash games and clicked a link leading you here. I hope you take a moment to look around! If not, cheers for playing my games!
Anyways, I used to work for a game company called Media Molecule (making LittleBigPlanet, LittleBigPlanet 2 and, about to be released, Tearaway). I spent a good 6 years (or so) there and learnt copious amounts of invaluable lessons (both in life and game-making-related). But a few months back I took big scary leap out in to the world and decided to try my luck going solo.
So the first game I’ll release in a long, long time will be Blacklist, a game I started working on oh so many moons ago. 7 years ago, I believe (however many moons that is). I nearly finished it, but had various things come up, stopping me from putting the final bits in. It will still be a bit longer before I can release it, but here’s the trailer again, for your viewing pleasure!
“Lovely day for a walk, don’t you think, you barked to you wheelchair bound owner? As per normal he just smiled at me and picked up his guitar. I never quite knew what he meant by that, but it made me feel like I could take on any challenge in the world! We worked as a beautiful team, my owner and me…”
Woof woof. WOOF! (That’s dog speak for “Click the link to play the game. NOW!”)
“Oh no! The Halloween-monsters have come to steal all of the Halloween-candy! Now it’s up to you, the good hearted dr.Schwartz, to try to stop them and bring back as much of the stolen Halloween-candy as possible.”
Follow the link to save the Halloween candy! Quick, before the monsters get diabetes!
“It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s a flying squirrel! NO! It’s a super cool ninja flying through the air killing anyone in his path! Why? Because he’s seeking vengeance for all the tortured souls haunting his dreams every night. Or something like that. C’mon it’s not really that important… He is a ninja after all!”
Ever wondered what it would be like to fly through the air chopping up ninjas in the face? No need to wonder any more. Your link to salvation is here!
“Pico is a lovely character Tom Fulp of Newgrounds.com created ages ago. A few years ago he had a contest where the goal was to create a game based on the Pico universe. I choose to remake the original Pico game called ‘Picos School’. This is the result!”

“Oh dear, I sure am tired of all the city noise and social pressure put on to me by society, thought the man. He could see but only one solution. He had to venture out in to the woods to live the life he always wanted. But what he didn’t think of was all the dangers that comes with such a radical lifestyle…”

“Survival of the fittest. Darwin theory. Eat, flee, fight? The choices of a bacteria arn’t all that many, but they could determine the fate of the future! This game doesn’t really capture that, but it’s got bubbles and a soothing background sound, if you ask me.”
