My name is Daniel Mercier and I am a part time indie game developer and full time college student studying criminal justice. I started programming games when I was 12 and have continued to pursue game development most of my life. I attended high school in Japan where I became fluent in Japanese and gained an appreciation for global issues. I have spent my adult life in Hawaii attending college and working part time as a bilingual fire arms instructor and sales associate. It has been a life long dream of mine to publish video games, which I accomplished with my first game, Call of Tomsk-7, on Desura. After finishing that game, I wanted to try developing a game that even more people could play so I made Burn Pixel Wood available for free for everyone. I am currently working on another game, the biggest project I have ever attempted and plan to make the game available for everyone to play this year.

This is the most stress free game I have ever played if you set the music to relaxed, you can just totally get in the zone with this game I started losing track of time just going from level to level. Also there is one level called Night of fire it’s so cool it looks like burning man in the water, if you have the music set right it can be quit unsettling in a good way total drew me in, I can’t stop playing that level.

This is a truly cool game I wish there was more information about the setting. I would love to know more about why monsters fight in boxing matches and why humans can’t join their tournaments. The game play and graphics are amazing. Right now this is my favorite boxing game ever. :D

These are some cool Ideas and I do intend to have a flame thrower in the game at some point, however making a house building feature into the game has a number of problems. First, the game was not originally designed around any type of house building or resource managing mechanic so I think it would be difficult to try and shoehorn in a system like that after the fact. To be frank I think it would be much easier to start from scratch on a new game than to add those systems. Also I personally believe that games built around house building and scavenging for rescores are really common among Indie game developers, not to mention really well made, games like project zomboid, terraria and of course minecraft all offer awesome game play. Those games boast a level of quality in there execution of those systems that a modified version of Tomsk-7 could never hope to compete with. But please don’t be discouraged I still really like your Ideas and I’m happy to hear more and will continue to try and get some of them in my next update!!! Also I would like to see your art work, sounds really cool.

Thank you for you feed back I’m going to keep thinking about your Ideas, but I REALY like number 4 that is such a cool idea I already have a ground enemy that spawns flying bugs, but a flying enemy that spawns some type of ground enemy I love it !!! There is something very yin and yang about that concept that I think would really help give the game some balance. Also I agree that the ending is somewhat abrupt, in all honesty I did not imagine that that people would find both ending so quickly so I didn’t think much of it but seeing that all of the players have found it and embraced it I should expand on what happens I’m still thinking about what that will look like but, I will add something for sure. I really want to thank everyone for their feedback it really helps me know what to add to this game as well gives me insight on how to approach my next project. Keep it coming ; )

ya I like that idea and I could make it "realistic" for a zombie anyway. rather than making him teleport I could make him ubsolve into a pudel like white zombies do when they die and have him move around the map as a white pudel or somthing on the ground and then have him matirialize and try to kill you somthing like that I will take a shot at it see if it works. cool idea thanks : )

Thanks, ya the spawn rate will be faster and Im thinking of adding extra enemy types for the hard core mode that way it would even be harder. And I agree on the guns Im dibating wether to add more traditional guns or go for somthing crazy like a flame thrower I will figer somthing out. I have to work on other things for the next two days but affter that I can start on the first update.

You will have a much faster start on hard core mode I know because it was in the game from very start of development; I just took it out of the game because I assumed people would not want it. You should have seen me face plant when I was reading your review LOL… but I don't think you want the monsters coming at you faster I used to have them come at you based on a calculation of how much damage you did to them but I had to tone it down because if you shot at them too many times they would move so fast it was just a white blur flying across the screen that would instantly kill the player. It was really funny to watch.

ya I try to keep my score going after the bomb drops to get that score but I’m thinking if I add a "Hard Mode" maybe I can give the players a point bonus so they can get the other hats.

thanks for contributing so much : )

This game is awesome I have played the demo and it really is the best jet skiing game I have played. There is a really nice attention to detail and the overall presentation has an air of freedom I have never seen in other jet ski game. most of the water racing games I have played always shunt the player down a path littered with invisible walls, where as Tropical heat makes it possible for the player to simply enjoy water skiing and go were ever they want as well as race

The Game play is quite different from S.T.A.L.K.E.R it’s a simple side scrolling shooter. However there are some thematic similarities to that game, for example Tomsk-7 is a real place much like Chernobyl, and was the site of a nuclear disaster in Russia. I must admit S.T.A.L.K.E.R and Metro 2033 are some of my favorite game too, also really good books.
