Temporary Plankton Games site outage - shifting hosting

 Hi, all - 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but the Plankton Games site will go down sometime this week for a few days while I switch hosting. My old hosting service (GoDaddy) hit me with a bunch of extra fees and hassle, so I need to dump them and move.

I'm hoping the transition will go smoothly, and I expect the site to be back up by May 13, 2022 at the latest.

New Ludum Dare game: Kharon's Twilight

 Hi, folks - I took part in Ludum Dare 50 a little bit ago, and I was able to complete a whole game in 48 hours. The theme was "Delaying the Inevitable," so I made a game where you're eventually overrun by a bunch of mammoths.

The game plays like a deckbuilding boardgame, although it's single-player. There are a bunch of special "power moves" that you can purchase, and you get to use a few of those (randomly selected) each turn, along with some basic moves.

The game did OK in the competition. It was hampered a little bit by speed issues (it's a browser game and I may have gotten too ambitious as to what the browser and my graphics library could handle).

To see the competition page (with more description of the game) see here: Ludum Dare Site

My Plankton Games site may go down for a bit over the next few days because I'm changing hosting, but it should be back up within a week or so.
