Take on up to 4 minigames at the same time! Super Multitasking is available NOW on Steam!

Welcome to yyrGames!

Hello!
It's possible that you're here because you played or bought one or more of my games at Super MAGFest 2020! So, I'll give you a little introduction to what I'm about, what I've got out right now, and what comes next!
I'm a one-man indie developer from New York, and I exclusively develop arcade-style games, because those are my favorite kinds of games. They're what I grew up with, and what I still enjoy playing the most, even at my current age of 40.

Mac support is up in the air

The following applies not only to my upcoming releases, including Sharpshooter Plus, but also to my currently-released games, Super Multitasking and Falling Plus. If you are a Mac user, please read it carefully.

Apple has decided to tighten the security on the latest version of MacOS. They are now requiring all developers to submit their work--both new apps, and updates to existing apps--to Apple for "notarization." This allows Apple to determine whether apps are infected with malware, unsafe to run, etc. ahead of time. While this is certainly a good thing for users, the not-so-good part is that an active developer account is required for this process, which costs $99+tax per year.

Farewell, Internet Ranking

Xbox Live Indie Games didn't support Leaderboards. So several XBLIG used various methods to get around this limitation. Some used a peer-to-peer system to provide in-game leaderboards, but this required Xbox Live Gold, and became fragmented as the player count dropped. So most yyrGames titles used a system called Internet Ranking. The games would provide 16-digit alphanumeric codes that corresponded to your score or time; yyrgames.com would accept these codes, and post your results.

After 11 years, and after accepting 619 entries from 178 unique players, Internet Ranking was closed on November 23, 2019. The most popular leaderboard, Snake360's Course 1 on Easy, contained 54 entries. To all players who participated, from the bottom of my heart, thank you very much!

Super Multitasking: Versus Ultimate at Super MAGFest 2020!

Once again...I apologize if you've been waiting to play Sharpshooter Plus. You'll be waiting a little bit longer...

But on the plus side, it gives me great pleasure to announce that Super Multitasking: Versus Ultimate is coming soon! And, you can be one of the first to try it out at Super MAGFest 2020!

Super Multitasking: Versus Ultimate will be the third and final--truly, the ultimate--version of my most original concept to date! The gaming skills you've built up over the years will be tested in new ways that you've never before imagined! This version will have more craziness, more excitement, more replay value, and even more features intended for beginners!

Here is a taste of what you can expect:

End-of-service reminders

Time flies, of course. We're already nearing the end of 2019. Just as a reminder:
