all my stuff

what's happening now

I made a promotional game for the band Spud Cannon's upcoming album. Feel free to contact me if you want to collaborate on a promotional game.

I did a lot of work to maintain a central focus on the music while making the game weird, accessible, and performant.

Planet Quest is a 3D printed strategy board game where players race to explore the galaxy. Players discover planets, complete quests, strategize ship upgrades, and battle each other to be the first to explore the ends of the galaxy. Our aim is to create an approachable, yet deep gameplay experience for those new to the strategy game genre.

A game with retro vibes where players must use the affordances of a tape recorder to solve puzzles in 3D. Instead of the tape recorder recording audio, it instead records the movement of objects. Players must record, play, rewind, and pause various objects to make their way through familiar spaces.

Pinball Teaches Typing is a Pinball game that employs typing game elements. Type words, hit the ball, get points, and hopefully increase your WPM along the way.

Loosely based on the smash-hit 2019 movie, Cursehole, this game sees players throwing beanbags in hell to score points and potentially win the favor of Satan.

I worked on 9 total prototypes during Spring 2020, Cursehole and Lighthouse included. (Almost) all of them can be seen and played here.

This isn't a game, but it is something I'm proud of. Money, Inc. is a short film about a young businessman (played by myself) who is having some trouble running his grandfather's company. Who better to call for assistance than the fine folks at Money, Inc? This was directed by my good friend Avery Wolahan.

During this summer I was also teaching at a tech camp and working on Spenser's Challenge.

Cursehole is a short film about a bunch of kids battling a demon in a game of cursed Corn Hole. I was the Assistant Director on this project and helped keep track of shot lists, corral people, and performed several other miscellaneous tasks. It was a week-long shoot, almost exclusively at night, in a partially confederate graveyard in Kansas City. It was extremely cold, and extremely fun.

The premier vaporwave scorpion arcade survival game, CRAWL N BRAWL. Fight for your life in 3 different arenas as a scorpion with a sword for a tail. Made for the 2018 Global Game Jam. This game is profoundly terrible in the best ways.

Clockboy

This is the first game I ever made. It's on my old laptop and I'm in the process of digging it up to put on here. I'm proud of every game that I make. It's kinda my job to love them as the person who made them. So I'm trying to proudly display all my stuff here.

feel free to say hi
