Here's out first release: bexa64n. It's a little tiny teaser of our forthcoming game bexagon. It's also available for the Atari Falcon and the first release created in bello basic - see readme doc below.
People use the phrase "mini game" without having much understanding of what that really might be or what goes into making any given game, understandable if they're not people who make games themselves. Well here's a true mini game. It's a 64kb file played in a 64x64 pixel area! It has sound*, increasing difficulty, scoring and that's about it. It's very simple stuff, but represents a lot of work... all stripped down and hacked away leaving the simplest gameplay elements and little else
*sound - the 64kb version has a small loop, the 2MB ROM has much nicer audio.
Here's the latest video of the proper game, bexagon, from probably around a week ago. This is far from being a minigame... it spends much of its time being a 6MB ROM and a PITA!:

a 64pixel x64pixel x64kb teaser for the forthcoming game, bexagon, by bello games
Written using Bello Basic. What's this? Simply put, it's the good old Raptor Basic+ but modified and extended so it can
also support 16/32 Atari platforms. Both Jaguar and Falcon versions are compiled from the same source files and different
codepaths are used for every platform. This is of course very limited to begin but will grow more sophisticated with time.
Falcon support was added from scratch within 8 days.
64k .ABS contains a small, low-freqency sample
.ROM contains a larger, higher frequency loop, both for the Atari Jaguar.
.PRG contains a Falcon030 version.
