November has probably been our busiest month of the year. We’ve been pumping out festive fonts left, right and centre to meet the demands of Christmas-hungry content creators (sorry I was desperate to use alliteration in that sentence). We also released two brand new, fully-featured games for you to play over the holiday period. Without further ado, let’s delve into Santa’s sack and take a look at all things Chequered Ink:


Maddening Euphoria

Warning: Copious Flashing Images.

Maddening Euphoria is a unique, challenging arcade game with randomly generated level design, in which you control brother and sister duet Mason and Millicent Zane as they flee from their own imagined realisation of their troubles in life – an inescapable wall of death – while avoiding bottomless pits, deadly spikes and speed-reducing pools of thick goo.

Now available on Steam for just 79p! ($0.99)


Eggsmas Jump

Also released this month, Eggsmas Jump, FREE on Android and iOS. Don’t let the Eggs hit the ground! Draw bouncy lines to stop the Christmas-themed eggs falling off the screen.

Avoid traps and obstacles like spiky eggs, UFOs and deadly spinning razors. How long can you keep your eggs in the air?

We’ll most likely be a little quieter throughout December as we wind down for the Christmas period, but our font catalogue now boasts a HUMONGOUS total of 329 fonts, so we’re sure yule find something to tide you over.


Coming up…

Work continues on both Tick, Tick, Pass and GameDevDan vs Life, as well as a whole host of other background projects. We’re almost certain to bring you more fonts this month, some kind of mini-game (to meet Dan’s insane target of creating one game per month) and we hope to create a showreel of every game we’ve released this year (like we did in 2015 and 2016).

Other than that we’ve got nothing else to announce just yet, keep your eyes peeled!


As this will be our last round-up before Christmas and New Year, we just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support this year and wish you a Merry Christmas and a wonderful year ahead in 2018.

All the best,

Dan and NAL
