Set in the years after mankind's colonization of Mars, Godric! takes place aboard the starship U.S.S. Anvil where our humble protagonist awakens to find the vessel and crew besieged by an unknown threat. Now Godric must face a dastradly enemy from across the galaxy, rescue his crew, escape with his life in a heart-pounding SPACE ADVENTURE.... Explore countless decks of The Anvil; battle through research labs, mess halls, crew quarters, secret passageways and more while facing down your robotic foe. Access computer terminals and other materials to gain intruiging backstory and insight on the enemy, the mission of The Anvil, and Godric himself.
Another update for Godric! Space Adventurer! Details about the upcoming podcast featuring an interview about the game, in addition to some details regarding the GameMaker Community #6. Also some updates about the development process.

News Update 4/27/2012
I'm long overdue for posting a news update, thankfully that only means that there's more to talk about! The past couple of weeks have been pretty busy in regards to development, and I'm hoping to have a good deal of new content and info up on the blog over the next week.
Just finished up an interview for the GameMaker Podcast, it was a really great opportunity to talk a little bit about Godric! and game design in general. The podcast should be online this coming Wednesday, May 8th, and I highly recommend giving it a listen if you're interested in game design/GameMaker.
On a similar note the 6th GMC Jam will take place this weekend from Saturday until Monday! The jam is a 72-hour game jam put on by the GameMaker Community, similar to the ever popular Ludum Dare. Participants have 72 hours to create a game; generally one incorporating a predetermined "theme" and "handicap", using GameMaker.
Sadly, prior commitments have had a terrible habit of preventing me from participating in past game jams...but by some miracle I've been granted a weekend free from any major distractions. That said, I'm very excited to be able to take part in the GMC Jam #6! It will be nice to take a brief diversion from working on Godric! , and I'll be sure to post my progress here throughout the jam.
As far as development on the game is concerned:
