I've started a new personal project wherein I am going to try to make a series of small games, each with a one-moth development cycle so many will be basic prototypes. I won't necessarily be making a game every month, but a good handful this year at least.
The first game is called Wastes, it is the first act of a series I may add more too if people like it.
It is a top-down twin stick shooter with some RPG-lite elements in it.
The setting is inside an old damaged and abandoned computer, the fragmented data on the HDD has started to compile into its own forms of life, some docile, others corrupt and dangerous.
The player is the remnants of a recovery program on the computer, activated in a desperate attempt to stop more damage from being done and preserve what non-corrupt data is left.
Here are some screenshots:

I did all the art for the game myself, as you can see I am not much of an artist, but it works for this game :)
I used the SFX and music provided when I purchased Construct2, thanks for that Scirra!
Also a huge thanks to the community, I went to the forums a few times for some help and got what I needed in very short order, good people there.
Here is the link:
In my experience you need to run it in Chrome and play with an Xbox 360 controller for it to work.
Unfortunately there is a bit of a wall of text to read at the beginning to explain all the controls and some of the nuances of the game, sorry, I didn't have time to tutorialize anything :(
Thanks so much for playing, please let me know what you think.
