Description

Just a guy making games.

History

Early history

I'd been dreaming of making games for mobile devices since high school. It was just a dream for far too long. I went through 3 flip phones and a university degree before really buckling down and just giving it a shot. My first real/successful attempt at something resembling a game was "Beer Bottle Rocket Man", created for a 1-month game development competition. It was one of only 3 games that were officially submitted to the contest. Nothing groundbreaking but it tore down barriers and opened doors in my mind. Soon after that I prototyped a sort of Lunar Lander game I called "Helicopter Ninja" and another game code named "Space Fight". I hope to bring these 3 prototypes, and many of the games scattered around in my head and in notebooks scattered around my office, to a polished state for everyone's enjoyment in the future.

Squishy Bugs

My first real attempt at a finished and polished product. Written in Java using the excellent libgdx library, the game is currently under development for the Android platform. After version 1.0 is released then the game will be made available online and perhaps on iPhone or in desktop form for your PC.
