Spy Cookout

"Your mission, should you choose to accept it: find the location of the Independence Day barbecue bash!"

Every year, my friend Ryan and I host an Independence Day cookout. We decided to up the ante last year, and turn our invitations into an experiential puzzle. Presenting, Spy Cookout.

Global Game Jam 2016: Burritos, Anime, and Deception

Remember when I made a really strange game for last year's Global Game Jam?

Well I just returned from GGJ 2016 with something even stranger: a game about a girl microwaving a burrito, that's played with a MIDI controller and a Microsoft Kinect. Allow me to present Burrito Kudasai.

The Scuttlefoot

"Remember the monster under your bed? The suffocating dread you felt when your parents flicked off the lights and left you alone in the dark? The long, sleepless nights spent wondering if you would make it until morning? It's back."

I've spent the last few months working on something special: my first virtual reality project! The Scuttlefoot is an interactive experience designed for Oculus Rift. 

Jontron: Bird vs. Camel

Ech! Popular game reviewer and all-around swood guy Jontron is under attack by a horde of evil camels! Can you defend him? You may have seen this game featured on Markiplier's YouTube channel! Right now, I'm blushing like sempai noticed me. Play it now.

2015 Update

Greetings Bootcampers! It's been a while since my last post. How is everybody?

It's 2015, and I'm going to be running this blog a little differently this year. First off, I want to make it more reflective and idea-based. In addition to games, I plan on posting my thoughts and writings on things game-related. I promise this won't turn into a boring diary. Pinky promise.

Secondly, I have a personal announcement to make.
As of January, I've working full-time as a game designer for Disney Imagicademy, which produces educational games for children ages 3-7. If you've got a kid in that age range, I highly recommend checking it out!

That keeps me pretty busy these days. It also means that I'm learning a lot about iOS development, big studio workings, and other such mysteries. I can't say how that will affect my personal work yet, but I'm brewing up some ideas as we speak...
