Corona GeekThis week we hung out with Brent Sorrentino, Dean MurphyEd Maurina, Gerald Bailey, Graham Ranson, Jay Davis, J. A. Whye, and Matthew Chapman to discuss:

7 Games In 7 Days

In preparation for this weekend’s GIGJam, Ed Maurina at Roaming Gamer took up the challenge to create 7 games in 7 days. As of today’s hangout, Ed had completed 6 of the 7 games and has packaged them into one app that will be in the Google Play and Apple App Store soon. Here’s a look at the games and the app.

Check out Ed’d game templates to get a jump start on your next game.

    Thanks for having me on the show and thanks for putting my video in the blog post!

    Thanks for hosting the GIGJam which gave me the motivation to try the 7G7D warmup. Also, thank for GGFile ( which I used to create level directories in my games.

    @The Community
    You can get the games as a bundle for Android right now, and hopefully soon on iOS. Just search for 7G7D in the app store(s), or follow this link:

    7G7D on Google Play:

    Lastly, I was going to make these into templates, but for now I’m going to release the code on GumRoad for $0+:

    If you would still rather see these as templates, follow the directions in the GumRoad description.

      @Ed Maurina
      Thank you for all your hard work. It’s very motivating. I opened up the 7G7D project last night and built the game right off the bat. The code is very well thought out and I particularly enjoy seeing how all the different games are pulled together into one containing app.

      Yes, thank you and Simon both for organizing this event. It’s awesome to see a member of the community step up to create an event like this where everyone can participate. Keep up the awesome work!

      Also, thank you to everyone who watches Corona Geek and subscribes to the podcast. Thank you to the developers who show up every week to be on the panel. None of it would be possible without you. You guys are Corona Geek.

    My last name is pronounced Y, but is actually spelled Whye.

    Yeah, it was clever when I chose it, but I never actually said it out loud. And it seems a bit too late to change it now. 🙂
