What other games have I made?

Over many years of indie game development, I’ve made at least 40 games. I’ve completed the “Seven Day Roguelike” contest (7DRL) every year since 2011. Approaching Infinity came out in 2015, and XenoBloom hit Steam the same year. The Curse of Yendor was realeased in 2017, and The Painter’s Playground rolled out in 2018, soon to be followed by Purge, Persist, and Profit. You can also find my games on Google Play, such as Life! Incremental Evolution Clicker and Urchin: An Incremental Story .

Random Realms, my classical roguelike:

Random Realms took me 4 years to release, and there is still nothing else out there like it. Every time you start a new game, an entire host of 26 monsters is created from a list of 45 different abilities and 10 stats. So it’s not just the dungeons and items that are random. It’s everything. It even invents a new background story each time! Of course it also contains other common roguelike elements, such as potions, scrolls, an identify system, selectable skills, leveling up, traps, and a complete magic system. Probably won’t run on some modern computers 😦

88 Pages (7DRL 2013)

A Puzzle-Roguelike you can win in 20 minutes. Collect the 88 Pages and recite the spell to ascend. Fight elemental monsters with elemental magic. Features an ever-changing single level that can transform from forest to dungeon to swamp to cave. Don’t Lose Hope!

The Well Of Enchantments (7DRL, 2012):

Subtitled, “An Exploitation of the Superclass”. Eat your sword to gain invisibility? Zap a lightning bolt out of your sandwich? Wield your boots as a weapon? Wear a scroll as a helmet? A roguelike where any item can have any  power!

  2. Really cool to see another game designer from the Northern VA area. Maybe we should get together and chat or even team up? I work with a small team at Happy Square Productions: http://thelandofeyas.com/

    I’m a game designer and artist – always looking for someone to do program for me haha.
