Dean

is creating weird, free games

Hello!


My name is Dean Moynihan, but most people just call me  Beans.

I've been trying to create short, pretty weird games out of bedrooms all over England for about a decade, under the name  Awkward Silence Games.

I'm somewhat known for injecting little bits of experimental, bleak, nihilistic sadness into seemingly simple looking Flash games.

In particular, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention that you might know me from a game called  One Chance - way back in 2010.



I'd like to continue making these kind of depressing, interesting, but ultimately emotionally rewarding experiences - semi-professionally. But I'm not really sure if anyone else wants to see them.

Here's what I've worked on:

BALLOONBOUND - PC - 20??


The Things We Lost In The Flood 
- PC/Mac/Linux - 2019



BURD 
- PC/Mac/Linux - 2019


itsallinyourheaditsallinyourhead - PC/Web - 2018

Exposure - PC/Mac - 2016


Eastwards, Towards The Violent Light - Flash/Web - 2014


RED - Flash/Web - 2012


The Body - Flash/Web - 2011


One Chance - Flash/Web - 2010



What do I get?

  • Full games in their entirety before they're released
  • To participate in constructive feedback and help shape games
  • Mega regular updates
  • Plenty of WIP GIFs
  • Access to games in the form of closed betas and experiemental builds
  • Unlimited access to my next, slightly larger scale project called BALLOONBOUND

Why?

I'm entering the last year of my 20's and I want to shake things up a little bit.

Motivation is something I've always struggled with and I believe that stems from not really believing in myself or my work. I know I enjoy the games I make, but I'm entirely unsure if anyone else does. This is also why donations will be made per creation.

This is not a monthly sub. I'll only get paid when I finish a game.

I'm also eager to continue to release these kinds of games entirely for free to the public (at least, the smaller ones). Your contributions will be the only income from the games.

These dumb little games are something I'll hopefully  always continue to produce in my spare time. However, any support you can give (monetary/emotional/misc.) will help these things come to life quicker, at a higher quality and help prevent projects from being left on my back up HDD forever and ever.

...

Any and all contributions are hugely appreciated and to be completely honest, I'm just stoked that you're even reading this.


No pressure.


Thank you.

I pass out from excitement.

A short, experimental game will be made to celebrate!
