Filed under: Game Development

This was my post for a discussion forum in an online course I’m taking, titled: Designing Gamified Learning Environments. The prompt for this discussion was: describe the engaging gameplay elements, experience, and other engaging factors of any game of our choice.

Filed under: Game Development Web Development

In preparation for the Twine and National Novel Writing Month jam I’ve been working on a relatively small test story to get my Twine 2 sea legs. The process has been mentally exhausting…but the end results have been wonderful.

GBJam: 5. Years Out of Practice: 3.

October 15th, 2016

Filed under: Life Game Development

Yeah. It’s been that long since I made anything that wasn’t work-for-hire. You’d think someone who’s as adamantly supportive of indie dev as I am would have something to show for his interest, passion, solidarity? Some small thing or open project he completed in all that time?

Enigma

December 4th, 2012

Filed under: Prose

I love writing in the tone of old film noir, and for this I wanted to mix that tone with more modernized elements. Definitely doing something with this, although it needs a lot of editing to make it more coherent.
