Lotuz - Life with indie games

The Return of the Lord - Games by younger me

Posted by Arthur Souza, 14 July 2014 · 472 views

Hey guys! I thought I would share this with you. This is a game I made with rpgmaker that lasted a while. I worked in this from 2004-2007, when I was 14-17.

The game is in Portuguese, pt-br, so that would be a little confusing for most of you, but I really want to share it.


Flickering overlapping objects - Common bug

Posted by Arthur Souza, 21 June 2014 · 1,760 views

I have recently been playing Don't starve, and have come to find a common bug that happens in many 2d games. It's something a little hard to come by when test developing.

Sometimes, two objects that slightly overlap have a flickering effect. This happens because one object is being drawn in front of the other at a time.

The common cause for this is the...

Getting back on Brazuca

What's up guys. I have been working again on the little football (soccer) game I have developed on a marathon a while ago. I really like the game, and I have already posted it. I'm reworking graphics and will get back to fixing some gameplay stuff and adding more content to it.

You guys can get it via dropbox, here:

It requires .net framework 4 and xna...

Heya guys, if you downloaded the small game I made on a 48h "marathon", I'm releasing a second version now. It has a little more stuff to it, it's still really small. I would really love to hear what you have to say about this current pet project.

Brazuca - 48 hours later

Posted by Arthur Souza, 08 July 2013 · 1,588 views

Hey guys. So, late saturday night I decided to make a small game on the next 48 hours. It would be a simple soccer simulator, something I have never done before, but that I really like. Wanted to pull off something simple but fun to play. I actually ended the development last night, so it was actually more like 24 hours than 48 hours, but I wanted to post...

Brazuca Update 3

Posted by Arthur Souza, 08 July 2013 · 506 views

SOOOO... I have a goalkeeper that will be just going after the ball like crazy when it is close enough, some players scattered around the field that don't do anything yet, and currently working on the game simulation!
The matches will last around 60 seconds. And the game will simulate what happens, when your team or the opposing team does something, and t...

Brazuca Update

I put a little more work today on the soccer simulator I'm working on this 48 hour period. I have not reached the 24h mark yet, and I will start to work on players now!

The first added player will be the goal keeper, and he will just react to kicks and try to get the ball away.

What I have so far:
Kick the ball, add force and a direction
Kick the ball (...

Working on it - Brazuca

I have been working on the mini soccer game I mentioned on the last post. So far we get 2 different screens. You have the ball placed on the field, and you set the power and general direction you will kick in. Then you get a closer look at the ball, and you click on exactly where you mean to hit the ball, to add a spin to it. Then the game switches back t...

Hey guys, this is the kind of idea thats good to have on a friday night when you're not going out. I have decided to create a small game on the next 48 hours.

It will be a soccer simulator called Brazuca 2013, and I WILL release whatever is created after these 48 hours.

This is a small fun project, as I have been spending all my time on the development...

This road seems too long and too dark

indie, project
Working on an indie project is a combination of really powerfull emotions.I have been developing web applications professionally for the last 4 years. I'm 23, and graduated from college at 21, so I was working in college. In my last job, I didn't have much work to do, and it got boring fast. I spent most of my last months of employment wondering how good...
